The metal manufacturing industry has a number of unique challenges in tracking products. With significant inventories of high value items, accurately identifying products (often by multiple factors such as dimensions, grade, processing and finishing conditions) is critical. However, harsh processing and storage environments place significant stresses on labeling and tagging media, undermining the integrity of product identification. Without functional product marking, companies cannot realize the compelling accuracy and efficiency improvements that auto-ID technologies offer.
