Tracking and Traceability is a primary need of tire manufactures. In logistics, WIP, quality control, and compliance, tires get tracked at every step of production process. Starting with raw materials through tire assembly, to the end-of-line sorting, reading the bar-code on tires is critical. But reading a bar-code on tires is a difficult task: it calls for omni-directional reading of low aspect ratio codes, whose quality degenerates during the manufacturing process. If the correct scanning technology is not applied, it may result in loss of production efficiency, additional manual handling, and extra costs for compliance management.
STS400™ is the first-in-class solution to effectively address the demanding requirements of Tire Tracking and Traceability.
