RFID enables paper core and paper roll tracking

RFID provides real-time supply-chain visibility for paper rolls and cores

A short introduction to RFID enabled paper roll and core tracking

The manual handling of paper roll and core inventory is time consuming and prone to error. RFID offers a cost effective method to identify individual paper rolls and cores remotely enabling automatized tracking of their movements and usage, which in turn leads to higher production efficiency.

Turck Vilant Systems is a world leader in pulp and paper tracking. Our RFID solutions keep a record of pulp and paper products around the globe on four continents. Specialized knowledge in pulp and paper manufacturing processes has helped us develop perfect products to support the needs of the industry.
