The Digital Factory
Tires are universal. Every year approximately 2 billion tires are produced, worldwide. But behind the scenes, tire manufacturing, retreading and retail is a very complex industry. It is partly so complicated, because the tire industry is one of the few industries where all raw materials come in and a finished, ready to use product is the final output. Any manufacturer defects, as a result of process malfunctions can have life threatening consequences. We trust service providers that the plane will land safely, truck and car tires will not malfunction due to substandard materials or manufacturing.
To maintain the public trust, tire manufacturers are under constant pressure to improve tire quality, simultaneously reducing tire production costs, offer more services and reduce end costs to the consumer.
While RFID technology is not new, FineLine Technologies and its subsidiaries Data2 and Ferm RFID Solutions have developed comprehensive solutions, leveraging RFID technology. Specifically designed for tire manufacturers, we’re helping manufactures in their conversion to digital factories and employing Industry 4.0 technology.
All applications have been developed in close consultation with various tire manufacturers and extensively tested in harsh production environments. Not only on the tag level, but also combined with the correct RFID readers, antennas and links with back-end systems.
