FermRFID, a division of FineLine Technologies, and Camso have announced a multi-year radio frequency identification (RFID) development agreement to commercialize a patent-pending RFID solution for solid tires called the “plug.”

The solution, which has undergone development and testing by FermRFID and Camso for two years, can uniquely identify tires and track them throughout the entire supply chain from manufacturing, vulcanization, warehousing, shipping and at customer locations.

The announcement was made jointly by George Hoffman, CEO and chairman of the board of FineLine Technologies, and Erick Bellefleur, vice president and general manager of material handling at Camso.

“The ability to use integrated RFID solutions in the tire manufacturing process enables visibility and transparency throughout a tire’s lifecycle and opens the gateway to Industry 4.0 development and the ‘Internet of Things’ ecosystem,” Hoffman said. “In addition, this RFID solution creates the opportunity for tire manufacturers to explore potential new business models with their customers.”

Camso’s Bellefleur added, “As a leader in solid tire manufacturing, we are committed to developing solutions that bring added value to our customers and improve their operations. The monitoring of tire usage throughout the entire life cycle, in the application, offers new avenues to better understand and lower fleet operating costs.”
