From an end customer perspective every order is urgent, and using RFID ensures they receive exactly what they request.

Advanced manufacturing empowered by RFID

A leading German brand is using RFID to improve the quality of its information to improve vehicle safety. On new models, they can access detailed information on every component relevant to safety, for example, the airbags. In the future, if a vehicle is involved in an accident, it is possible to retrieve all the relevant information on a single component, including who manufactured it, in which facility, and in which batch. If a part is considered a safety risk, it is then possible to identify all the vehicles manufactured using this specific batch of components and activate a recall.

Enhancing Medical Device Logistics with RFID Technology

How can RFID technology improve the quality and efficiency of patient care? Read our latest case study where we discuss the impact of automating logistics and making medical devices traceable, specifically for prosthetics. In collaboration with our partners, Primtec and implantcast GmbH, discover how RFID has unlocked real-time data that  immediately flags any product discrepancies and as a result reduces error rates.
