Jan. 11, 2016 – Milwaukee Cylinder has introduced its RFID solution for identifying and maintenance tracking of tie rod cylinders.

The RFID tags come pre-loaded with cylinder identifying information and maintenance kit information, allowing for “simple preparation of maintenance activity,” says the company. Once maintenance is complete, the date and work comments can be recorded to the tag, tracking a cylinder’s history to help set up a maintenance schedule. Milwaukee Cylinder built its RFID solution around high frequency (HF) RFID tags made by Balluff, and the Milwaukee Cylinder proprietary RFID tag mounting system. The selected Balluff RFID tags claim to be highly durable, made for industrial applications. The Milwaukee Cylinder RFID tag mounting system allows an RFID tag to be mounted anywhere on a tie rod, on any side of the cylinder.
