The source tagging of products with RAIN RFID at the point of manufacture – traditionally via inlays - benefits everyone in the supply chain. While this approach is still dominant and cost efficient, manufacturers need to find new ways to embed and encode RAIN RFID tags efficiently at massive volumes if they wish to maximize the benefits. It is predicted that in 2019, over 20 billion items will have been identified and connected to the Internet of Things via RAIN RFID chips. However, even in the early adopter market of fashion retail, the penetration rate of RAIN is still less than 10%. A huge business growth opportunity exists as adoption continues, but it presents a significant manufacturing scalability challenge. In this webinar, industry experts discuss existing challenges around tagging processes, as well as ways to increase the productivity of smart label encoding and attachment. RAIN RFID capabilities can often be retrofitted into existing production machines in label, package or various other industrial manufacturing processes. This can eliminate the need for investing in new machines, saving you time and money! As a webinar attendee, you will discover how you can merge various tagging process steps via a single machine, without having to resort to intensive PLC programming. Maximize the value of existing equipment and improve your production processes, enabling you to easily scale up as the industry heads towards 100 Billion annual RAIN-enabled items and beyond! » Learn More

There’s never been more pressure to manufacture with less cost. To remain competitive, successful companies are looking for practical ways to obtain better information faster. Radio frequency identification (RFID) is a proven technology that lends itself to a wide array of data collection applications in the warehouse and on the factory floor, but adoption hasn’t taken off - until now. With global standards, lower system costs and enhanced solution reliability, adoption is on the rise. In fact, nearly half of all manufacturers are expected to implement passive RFID solutions within the next five years. In this webinar, the speakers provide a brief overview of that state of RFID in supply chain and manufacturing today. Then, they’ll explore several use cases highlighting the successful application of RFID in real-world environments, including a global manufacturer of agricultural, industrial, and consumer products that is more accurately monitoring cycle times to drive continuous improvement; a major appliance manufacturer that streamlined visibility and verification of inventory delivery from the manufacturing floor to finished goods warehousing; and a leading electronics component provider that’s leveraging RFID to track mission critical assets on a global scale. Finally, The presenters will explore the three traits common to all successful RFID implementations and how you can use them to ensure RFID project success within your organization. » Learn More
