Faraday Future | April 04, 2022

Faraday Future Announces
Faraday Future Intelligent Electric Inc., a California-based global shared intelligent electric mobility ecosystem firm, has launched a brand campaign titled "Born in California. Global DNA" to highlight the company's global partners for its flagship vehicle, the ultimate techluxury FF 91. The FF 91 is designed and manufactured in California by the company's global workers with the assistance of FF co-creators, utilizing technologies from top-tier suppliers worldwide. FF anticipates launching the FF 91 in Q3 2022.

“Our ‘Born in California. Global DNA’ campaign highlights our global sourcing which helped us create an EV unlike any other before it, While we are manufacturing the FF 91 in California, the vehicle has global DNA. We have assembled the best the industry has to offer, representing the highest quality product, with delivery to our first users expected in Q3 of this year.”

-Carsten Breitfeld, Global CEO of Faraday Future

The company's flagship FF 91 was developed in Los Angeles, engineered in Los Angeles and Silicon Valley, and is manufactured in the company's Hanford, Calif. manufacturing factory. The FF 91's "Global DNA" showcases the talent at FF and throughout the world, with assistance from top-tier suppliers from nations including Italy, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, China, Belgium, and Switzerland.

To highlight the FF 91's manufacturing accomplishments, the business sponsored the ieMedals campaign. FF will reward a separate supplier in the FF 91 family from across the world with a unique ieMedal for each production-intent vehicle created in the months leading up to the FF 91's SOP. ieMedals can be earned by users of the FF Intelligent App by accomplishing certain tasks or participating in co-creation projects. The ieMedals are electronic prizes that are added to the FF Intelligent App users' FFID profiles.

To learn more about the ieMedals campaign and to participate in it, futurists can download the FF Intelligent APP at https://apps.apple.com/us/app/id1454187098 or https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.faradayfuture.online.
FF is a luxury, high-performance, intelligent electric vehicle manufacturer on a mission to redefine driver and passenger experience standards. The firm achieved its fourth manufacturing milestone with the launch of production-intent cars, which complete the last engineering certification and validation required prior to production beginning in Q3 2022. As the FF progresses through the production-intent construction process, the firm will showcase each of these new builds to highlight the global supply partners that contribute to the car's uniqueness.

OPEX Enables RFID Scanning for its Automated Warehouse Sorting Technology

OPEX Corporation | January 16, 2023

OPEX® Corporation, a prominent name in Next Generation Automation for almost 50 years, announced that it is adding RFID scanning to its cutting-edge Sure Sort® Warehouse Automation technology to meet client needs and improve operational speed and efficiency. Sure Sort has long been the go-to warehouse automation solution for distribution centers, retail outlets, and third-party logistics seeking efficient and accurate order handling, cross-docking, and reverse logistics. The system is scalable, reliable, and has high throughput. OPEX now offers RFID scanning to meet client demands, particularly apparel manufacturers and retailers. Hidden bar codes in clothing impede operations and demand additional operator handling. Scanning doesn't require a visual connection because RFID uses radio waves. RFID scanning is famous not only in the clothing industry but also in the processing of cell phones and pharmaceutical processing, to name a few purposes. President of OPEX Warehouse Automation, Alex Stevens, stated, "The expansion to RFID is just another example of how we live our values and principles to listen and be responsive to customers' needs." He added, "It is another great tool in our growing portfolio of modular and flexible warehouse automation technology and solutions." (Source- Business Wire) Responsive warehouse automation technology is essential with rising labor costs and supply chain issues. For example, Sure Sort robotic delivery vehicles, known as iBOTs®, can process up to 2,400 items per hour with as few as three operators and recharge as they move through the system. OPEX will exhibit at NRF 2023 from January 15–17 at Javits Center in New York City. About OPEX Corporation OPEX continually reimagines automation technology to assist clients in resolving their most critical business issues, leveraging generations of industry experience and a track record of producing first-rate automation skills and advanced engineering. It has been a valued partner for nearly five decades, working with clients to develop tailored, scalable solutions.
