SUCCESS STORIES

RFID TAGS AND LABELS ENABLE TRACKING SERVICE OF RETURNABLE CONTAINERS CHEP Pallecon Solutions has selected Confidex RFID tag and label technology as part of CHEP-TRAC, its tracking service of returnable containers. CHEP Pallecon Solutions’ containers are being equipped with Confidex RFID tags and labels which create the vital and reliable link for these physical returnable assets with the CHEP-TRAC cloud-based solution. “Our partnership with Confidex has allowed CHEP to provide customers with high-quality tags which are sure to stand up to the rigors of manufacturing environments,” explained Mr. Keith Schall, Director of IT Global Containers BRM for CHEP, “because of this superior tag quality, we are that much more confident in our data integrity, which propels us toward the ultimate goal of complete asset visibility for our customers.” More about the CHEP case >> https://www.confidex.com/success-stories/chep


TRACEABILITY THROUGH THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS AT DANA INCORPORATED Dana commissioned Confidex Ltd., the leader in industrial RFID tags, to develop a custom RFID tag for tagging automotive parts, which could meet DANA product requirements including high temperature washing and painting. Throughout the design process, DANA and Confidex teams worked closely together to ensure optimal read performance and adhesion of the final tag design. Mr. Brent Vetter, Sr. Process Engineer at Dana notes: “The primary business benefit realized at Dana has been that the operator doesn’t have to grab a 2D barcode or UPC scanner to identify the product. The tag is scanned without having the operator and robotics or automation system orient the tag in any particular direction. This saves significant work and cycle time while maintaining 100% traceability through production.” More about the DANA case >> https://www.confidex.com/success-stories/dana
