For modern manufacturing processes, product traceability and accuracy are critical. And companies are facing increased pressure to streamline their manufacturing processes to ensure accurate and on-time product deliveries. This means implementing solutions that give immediate data insights as most manufacturing facilities transition to Industry 4.0. Metalcraft has partnered with many manufacturers for everything from asset tracking and tracing to managing work in process conveyor belt efficiency, and we have our hands in the future as this industry adapts and transitions to 4.0. 

An example of our next-gen technology is that with RFID-enabled asset management, you can auto-fill tracking information quickly on asset arrival without the need for any human intervention. This can theoretically happen at as many locations as you need per the application. By auto-filling information and delivery statuses, RFID eliminates both the labor requirements and human error possibilities of other forms of tracking while increasing production visibility and inventory accuracy.  

No matter what, you want to know you have Metalcraft engineers by your side as we provide cost-effective ID technologies that: 

  • Keep track of inventory automatically
  • Receive and assign goods, knowing where everything is
  • Reduce unnecessary equipment purchases and incorrect deliveries
  • Discourage theft and counterfeiting
  • Provide real-time data on where every tracked device is
  • Create supply-chain process optimization and transparency
  • Provide a real-time account of safe handling

As we help manufacturers automate their processes, we’re partnering to best understand their unique applications and how we can help optimize their supply chain with solutions that give real-time results. And if there isn’t an “off the shelf” solution, we are known for our customization, being the first company to offer customizable RFID inlays, as one example. Now that’s ID Made Better®.
