Application of UHF RFID Technology in Clothing Industry

UHF RFID technology can be informationized from garment production, product processing, quality inspection, warehousing, logistics, transportation, distribution and product sales, providing users with real-time dynamic tracking and query; realizing the monitoring and management of processing information, system operation status and business operation quality, and at the same time providing managers at all levels with information. Providing real, effective and timely management and decision-making support information and providing support for the rapid development of business will solve all the problems, thus reducing costs comprehensively and improving profits and competitiveness. Next, we will introduce the application of UHF RFID in garment field in detail.

1. Clothing RFID Anti-counterfeiting Function

In the production process of RFID garment management, some important attributes of single garments, such as name, grade, goods number, model, fabric, lining, washing method, execution standard, commodity number, and inspector number, are written into corresponding electronic tags by using UHF RFID card issuer, and the electronic tags are attached to garments.
The attachment methods of RFID tags can be adopted: inserting them into clothing, making them into nameplates or hanging tags, or retrievable anti-theft hard tags, etc. Giving each garment a unique global ID number that is difficult to forge can effectively avoid counterfeiting and solve the problem of garment counterfeiting.

2. Clothing RFID Warehousing Management

Because UHF RFID technology can recognize multi-tags at the same time in the non-contact and non-visual situation, that is to say, dozens of garments with UHF RFID tags can read all logistics data accurately through UHF RFID reader at one time, which greatly improves logistics efficiency.
Ultra-high frequency RFID technology can be used in the storage management of RFID garment management to realize the visual management of all management units. It can greatly shorten the time of packaging, handling, inventory, and statistics, thus reducing cargo losses, speeding up a capital turnover and greatly improving the efficiency of storage management.
Through this process, 15,000 garment items can be validated hourly in only one UHF RFID channel. Automation of the validation process can reduce the time spent on the supply chain by 5 to 7 days.

3. Inventory of warehouse RFID technology to avoid out-of-stock and Out-of-code

For manufacturers and clothing stores, the UHF RFID reader can be used for warehouse inventory. Customers can automatically analyze the labels read by the reader so that they can know the actual number of a certain type, a certain color, a certain type of clothing, so as to ensure the balance of inventory, and timely replenishment, so as to avoid a certain clothing store clothing. Shortage or code breakage to ensure the normal needs of customers.

4. store RFID security

UHF RFID reader has relay output function inside, that is, when UHF RFID reader reads labels or special format labels, UHF RFID reader closes the relay, which triggers the closure of external relays and triggers alarm or alarm light alarm. There are several kinds of anti-theft for RFID tags. Situation:

4.1 The RFID tags of clothing stores need to be recycled

In this case, the reader installed at the garment door only needs to read the label to trigger the external alarm.

4.2 No Recycling of RFID Labels in Clothing Stores

In this case, clothing stores can use UHF RFID reader to rewrite the label on the clothing that customers are about to buy, define a byte of data, when the byte is 0, it means not purchasing, when it is rewritten to 1, it means purchasing, when the reader at the door reads the unrewritten label, it triggers an external alarm to alarm, and When reading the rewritten label, no external alarm will be triggered.

5. RFID quick stocktaking

UHF RFID handset can real-time inventory goods on the shelf and store backstage. It can generate report forms according to region and shelf position, generate data in a specified format according to actual requirements, and upload them to the store management system in real time or offline way.

6. RFID quick cash register

Through fixed UHF RFID reader or RFID handheld cash register, the system can quickly collect the information of goods selected by customers and generate sales lists, which greatly saves the checkout time. Salesmen can use more valuable time to focus on customer service.
