‘Getting Connected’ at Rotoplas 2021
Toby Huff, USA Sales, PSI Brand
Once again PSI Brand break down barriers between rotomolders and their branding, taking plastic branding technology ‘live’ at Rotoplas 2021 International Rotational Molding Exposition in Chicago, September 20-23, 2021. PSI invest strongly in these events as they believe staying up to date with market challenges is a key step to delivering maximum benefit to our customers.
ARM provided an excellent venue, packed with industry leaders, like-minded enthusiasts, and fantastic presentations, including artificial intelligence! So how does AI relate to rotomolding?
We understand Industry 4.0 is at the forefront of modern manufacturing, and in a market that is experiencing rapid growth it makes sense to grow your brand to the next level, taking your production processes along with it and understanding how to track plastic products. On-point, Toby Huff presented real-time, tangible steps rotomoulders can take to implement track & trace, starting with manual processes in serialisation right through to PSID™, our trade-marked electronic tracking system incorporating RFID.
This presentation covered major factors which directly benefit rotational moulding currently which included.
– Serial Numbering – applying an effective serial number system for quick and efficient identification of products
– Barcoding – scan ability provides a higher level of control, not only through the moulding process, but also for connecting to ERP systems
– QR Codes – these can be dual-use, take your customer direct to a website tutorial and use as a next-level serial numbering system
– RFID – a ‘radio frequency identification’ allowing moulders and end-users to read and store data, providing a robust tracking system better position you to respond to your customers’ problems.
These technologies are being used by 1000’s of applications, so gained significant attention, read more in the blog here.
