Using GAO RFID Systems in the Tobacco Manufacturing Industry

The GAO RFID System for Tobacco Manufacturing Services ensures that a wide range of challenges unique to your processing plant is managed effectively for optimal results. With the industry becoming more demanding, plant managers are forced to find ways of technologically improving their output while reducing costs. Our RFID Systems can help to:

Equipment Management

Expensive manufacturing equipment is the backbone of your manufacturing company. As you own a variety of equipment ranging from cigarette makers, mass flow tray fillers, conveyor systems, plug assemblers, and high speed cartoners, our RFID Asset Tracking System allows you to quickly see equipment locations, track them if they are missing, and protect your equipment through up-to-date maintenance tracking.

With RFID, the tracking and maintenance monitoring of devices, it can be automated and conducted with the efficiency and ease that your organization needs.

Access Control

In your tobacco manufacturing plant, the safety and security of the premises is a top priority. With multiple zones, restricted areas, parking garages, and loading areas, our RFID Access Control System can be used to provide automated access to personnel and visitors across the facility. Using RFID, specialized badges or tags given to each individual is programmed with unique access levels. This allows individuals to enter and exit zones automatically, and all activity is logged in the system database. Even for large trucks and containers, access can be automated and tracked to provide a truly efficient way of conducting logistics in your loading area.

Tracking Shipments and Distribution

Identifying and locating both incoming and outgoing shipments to and from a manufacturing environment is not only necessary, but vital to maintaining the bottom line for your organization. Our RFID Asset Tracking System allows you to quickly see item locations, track them if they are lost; protecting them from potential loss. Especially since your product is tobacco, it requires a higher sense of security and regulation. RFID Tags applied to your outgoing products can be monitored from your manufacturing facility to the distribution centers and eventually to your customers’ loading docks; allowing you full visibility of the entire delivery cycle which provides transparency and security for all parties involved in the transaction.
