Barcoding & Product Traceability
Why Invest in Product Barcoding?
Barcoding for Tire Manufacturers
- Enables intelligent material handling and a necessary element of product traceability
- Builds foundation for automatic inventory management
- Allows mixed mode (lot size 1) vs. batch mode processing in the final finish area
- Improves response to customer and product quality issues
Begin barcoding by attaching barcode labels to products:
- Raw materials that become rubber
- Rubber that becomes components
- Components that become tires
- Tires that go to your customers
You can barcode products individually (green tires) or packaged in groups (beads), and either apply pre-printed barcode labels supplied on rolls, or attach individual barcode tags printed “on demand“ as inventory is produced.
You can also barcode packaged products. These applications usually utilize “on demand” barcode labels that automatically print as inventory is produced. When you attach barcodes to your products, you identify them. Now you can track products as they are produced, moved, tested, and consumed.
When you store product data keyed by barcode number, you create Product Traceability
Because components were scanned at a building machine, the database record also links to component product data. To retrieve this information, just scan the tire barcode label.
Each product barcode record also links to detailed machine and operator data. CTI can customize data to fit your organization.
