RFID concept provider

iBlade® - the custom solution specialist for tool manufacture and repair / service

iBlade® is a young company with headquartered in the Bavarian town of Kolbermoor. We mainly deal with software solutions, RFID technology and measurements machines. We are the perfect business partner when it comes to branch-specific special solutions for the automatic identification, measurement and optimum management of tools.

The managing director Michael Kohnle comes from the tool manufacture field. Modern production techniques with increasing batch sizes and shorter production time, require a clear recognition and matching of the parts and tools to be produced. His years of experience, the increasing needs and new requirements in the production of cutting tools, led to the basic idea of an intelligent blade, the so-called iBlade® was born. The first products, software solutions and concepts of iBlade® were presented for the first time in May 2012 at the AMB in Stuttgart. A year later, the iBlade® concept occupied the second place at the Novelties Symposium, LIGNA.

Our main focus is the reduction of costs, reduction of downtime and precise control of the automation and optimization of processes and workflows. In combination with the latest surveying and RFID technology, it is possible to generate more information and improve competitiveness.

In recent years, many tool manufacturers tried to implement identification systems, but most of them abandoned it again. Most RFID providers simply offered only the hardware, therefore to build a functioning system was needed to put together external third-party software. Conventional identification systems are usually very expensive, too unwieldy and not user-friendly to handle. IBlade® on the other hand, offers a complete package with all the necessary RFID components, such as chips and readers, the latest surveying technology and the appropriate software with a high degree of flexibility, low-cost and above all with high operating convenience. iBlade® offers integrated concepts starting from consulting, programming till maintenance. We always stand out as a reliable and competent partner. We adapt to challenges and we are able to find specific solutions in close collaboration with our customers.
