The cigarette industry is interested in the application of RFID tag technology

the global rational production and supply of raw materials, as well as the conflict between timely supply needs and local supply bases, the requirements of the United States for cigarettes with low ignition point characteristics, as well as the long-standing problems of imported products in the gray market, counterfeiting and fraud, all require a safe and reliable identification means: This is what RFID can provide

in any production and sales organization, efficient supply chain management (SCM) is a prerequisite, and in today's modern international tobacco enterprises, it is more and more critical

unless goods and information flow are perfectly combined, supply chain management will collapse. The key to good supply chain management is to have overall visibility of the goods in the whole supply chain and be able to rely on the information provided by the ERP system. However, overall visibility relies heavily on good, accurate, and error free data. Nowadays, there are many data capture methods, from automatic bar code scanner to handheld bar code scanning, to optical character recognition (OCR) and handwritten code, but these mixed methods can not be well combined in the system

therefore, an advanced automated data capture system is the key to good supply chain management. RFID is an automatic data capture method that meets the needs. An RFID tag is like a "radio barcode". However, its advantage is that it can be read without seeing it. It can store a large amount of information that can be accessed even when the machine is not connected (without looking up the database). It can also apply pressure to the specimen with 10kN clamping force around and update it "dynamically"

rfid has been developed for more than 10 years and has been used in various applications, from automobile safety to animal identification. However, only in the past few years, Wal Mart and the Ministry of defense in the United States and the Metro Group in Europe announced that if their suppliers want to continue to enjoy the status of major suppliers, they must apply RFID. This method has really aroused the imagination of the tobacco industry, and has become a topic of concern to the retail community

rfid technology is effectively installed for trolley and pallet tracking, plastic tool box tracking, identification of goods on the conveyor belt of the transmission center, and automatic control of production equipment. In supply chain management, it can also ensure the accurate traceability of materials and parts, quality and brand (materials, semi-finished products or finished products) and product identification (for anti-counterfeiting and compliance with legal requirements)

for these reasons, the cigarette industry is becoming more and more interested in RFID. The global rational production and supply of raw materials, as well as the conflict between timely supply needs and local supply bases, the requirements of the United States for cigarettes with low ignition point characteristics, as well as the long-standing problems of gray market imported products, counterfeiting and fraud, all require a safe and reliable identification means: this is what RFID can provide

tricon is the largest supplier of RFID solutions, with proven performance in the tobacco industry. Some of the application technologies it provides to the tobacco industry include:

· the latest Moldex3D product release of tobacco leaf tracking tube & nbsp; Strengthen the structural analysis of plastic composite materials (cigarette bundles, barrels and boxes)

· track non tobacco materials by category (paper barrels, adhesives, films, etc.)

· track management of NTM pallets (acetate fibers, printing materials, glyceryl triacetate, etc.)

· track filter discs and cartons

· ID of cigarette shipping boxes, understand advanced technologies, find technical resources to break through technical bottlenecks and professional fields for logistics Compliance with legal requirements and product identification

among these uses, many have brought additional benefits to material suppliers, because traceability, the assurance of specifications and the improvement of supply chain efficiency can reduce the cost of suppliers, which will ultimately be reflected in cigarette manufacturers' costs D and comparison experiments between laboratories; Reduction of

tricon, an expert in RFID solutions, has extensive knowledge and proven good performance in providing solutions to the tobacco industry
