At Kumho Tire Factory, RFID Drives First-In, First-Out Process

Korean tire manufacturer Kumho Tire is employing passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID tags to track its consumption of the rubber materials that it uses to assemble tires at two of its factories. Qbit's RFID solution is enabling the company to boost its efficiency, better manage its rubber material and ensure that the rubber is used on a first-in, first-out (FIFO) basis, thereby allowing it to consume the material before it becomes stiffens with age or reaches its expiration date. The system has been installed at Kumho's plants in the South Korean cities of Gwangju and Gokseung, while several of its other factories may take the system live during the next two years.
