RFID technology to drive transparency within tire production logistics
Using Fineline’s patented RFID barcode bead labels, individual tires can be tracked and traced throughout the production logistics, warehousing and customer, to the vehicle (claim handling), including return logistics. Together with an RFID solution for mold management, the overall quality of a tire will grow. Mold management is directly related to overall tire quality, but it remains one of the most challenging processes to master. Utilizing RFID solutions provides connectivity through almost the entire manufacturing process. Further, this connectivity delivers total transparency and traceability of a tire. An RFID solution to support mold management processes provides full transparency.
