Track and Trace for Industrial Tools

Track and trace for industrial tools refers to systems capable of recognizing and reporting the location and status of tools in a facility. Today's production of industrial and consumer goods requires exacting work. Precise application of pressure or torque is required in many industries and operator errors can cause costly defects. Track and trace technology can improve production safety, quality, and productivity.


Asset tracking is currently done via barcode and a variety of manual steps in most cases. However, new solutions leveraging smart tags, near-field communication (NFC), and RFID are coming to market to globally track all varieties of objects in real time.
