Leakage Testing in Automobile Production

Waterproof: RFID tags with sensor element test for leaks

Together with its partners Smartrac and Turck Vilant, Turck offers a fully automated leakage testing system in automobile production. The system is based on UHF-RFID technology and detects all leakages in car bodies without the need for any manual intervention.

For this the car body is fitted during the production process with self-adhesive tags at relevant points.

If the tag detects humidity, it reacts with a change in impedance, which is registered by the RFID read/write heads in the gates.
