Material flow management
Managing material flow is essential part of the manufacturing process. Was it chemicals needed for painting process or pulp bales for paper industry, RFID enabling the flow increases the cost-efficiency and accuracy in the process.
Pulp & Paper
Confidex RFID products meet the unique requirements of the manufacturing processes in the pulp and paper industry.
