Multinova Reduces Time Required to Separate Orders By 60 Percent
An RFID solution, replacing an existing bar-code-based system, has ensured greater accuracy and confidence for management regarding the tracking of bubble plastic rolls at the company's factory.
Dec 10, 2018—
Multinova's bubble plastics plant recently replaced the use of bar codes to track rolls of its products with a radio frequency identification solution provided by Akron, located in Caxias do Sul, Brazil. Multinova, based in Farroupilha, has improved accuracy and boosted its confidence in the separation of orders and verification, thanks to the RFID portal, which has eliminated its previous manual process. The company's subsidiaries in Bahia and Santa Catarina have also adopted the technology.
Prior to the RFID deployment, Multinova's picking and inventory counting processes were performed using bar-code readers. Now, with RFID inventory counts, it is no longer necessary for workers to move stacks of stocked products to access bar-code labels. The order-picking process no longer requires that employees locate each product's label individually, the firm reports. They can simply pass the bubble plastic rolls through the portal, enabling them to count several units at a time, and to carry out the verification of separate materials for shipment to customers.
Currently, after production is completed, each product is transferred to a stock area, passing through the RFID portal before being stored. Then, at the time of loading and delivery, each item passes through the portal again for the purpose of order separation and invoice billing.
According to Paula Germana, Multinova's controller, the implementation experience was a positive one. Akron's role, she explains, was "to provide the information needed to get a better understanding of the RFID process, and to enable the acquisition and installation of the necessary equipment and systems, as well as training and follow-up."
