Hurst Green scores a first with TagBin direct line feed system

Hurst Green Plastics has scored a first success with TagBin - its new Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Stock Dispensing System.

The TagBin product, has been cleared for use by Heath Tecna and Countour, for provision in aerospace production line environments. TagBin has been procured by Specialist Technologies for these two clients.

Hurst Green's TwinBin product has already created opportunities for many world-class aerospace companies, achieving impressive cost reductions, whilst significantly improving stock control.

RFID is an automatic identification method, relying on storing and remotely retrieving data using RFID tags. Unlike more conventional scanning systems, the tags do not require a line of sight or need to be individually scanned.

TagBin has two protected chambers, arranged vertically and separated by a slider, which when pulled drops the reserve batch into the active chamber. TagBin means that the bin will signal whenever the slider is pulled and the reserve chamber becomes empty. Bins no longer have to be physically examined. When the slider is pulled, the RFID tag is exposed, indicating that replenishment is required. Status is determined either by using fixed readers in real-time or by walk-by using a portable reader.

This is the first time that the RFID concept has been used in Europe for direct line feed purposes.

"Obviously we are exceptionally pleased to provide the first TagBin system to Specialist Technologies", stated Stephen Clarke, Managing Director, Hurst Green Plastics. "The system provides real cost benefits, uses cutting edge RFID technology and will significantly improve direct line feed. The technology involved means that the system is more effective than any other direct line feed system" he added.
