Using GAO RFID Systems in the Plastics Manufacturing Industry

Our RFID solutions help to automate administrative tasks so that your employees can do what they need in a healthy, progressive manufacturing company. GAO RFID Systems helps to ensure the increased safety and security of both the persons in the warehouse and protect its equipment. As competition increasingly becomes fiercer in the plastics manufacturing market, managers are continuously being asked to find ways to increase productivity while reducing costs. Here is how our RFID technology can help:

Managing Inventory and Equipment Efficiently

Any manufacturing company has a plethora of inventory and a vast array of equipment that are vital to the company’s daily operations. In specific, every WIP that makes up the plastics manufacturing process needs to be tracked so that you know you are using the right amount of inventory and that you have enough raw materials to complete your production goals. In terms of equipment, expensive machines such as slitter-rewinders, pouch bag machines, plastic bag makers, corona treaters, blow film extruders, and cast film lines all need to be monitored for mishandling or theft. Because every manufacturing company has unique equipment and goods being produced, there different ways of management unique to their own specific needs. GAO RFID Asset Tracking System makes the tracking and monitoring of maintenance for these equipment automated; thereby keeping the equipment securely on-site and taken care of to ensure increased production uptime.

Tracking Personnel and Visitors in Office and the Shop Floor

Identifying, locating, and tracking employees and other visitors to your organization is a necessary part of maintaining the safety and security of the organization. Our RFID Personnel Tracking System enables managers to track factory workers, custodians and visitors to monitor them as they move through the facility. A set of specialized RFID tags ensures that each individual is uniquely tracked. Knowing how long each employee says within a station, or being able to locate missing personnel in real-time truly helps to keep your manufacturing facility safe.

Controlling Access

As a manufacturing company, you will have many zones that require monitoring and areas where you want to limit access. With our RFID Access Control System, production rooms, inventory warehouse, delivery zones, parking garages, equipment maintenance rooms and other high-risk areas can be controlled, allowing only authorized personnel access to these zones. GAO RFID Tags for your employees and visitors ensures that only authorized personnel can get into authorized areas of your facility. All access to your facility can be logged, viewed and analyzed from our web-enabled software, making access monitoring highly effective.
