Barcoding and Marlin Steel Wire Products, a manufacturer of custom steel wire and sheet metal products, announced a collaboration to automate inventory tracking and protect high value items through the materials handling process.
The partnership pairs Marlin Steel’s engineered materials handling with Barcoding’s RFID technology and system integration capabilities, creating one, complete inventory management solution designed for production lines and complex applications.
As a result of the Baltimore-based companies’ collaboration, Marlin Steel’s clients now have the option of adding RFID tags to any steel product order, including wire steel baskets, sheet metal fabrications and wire forms.
RFID-tagged baskets allow users to track high value items throughout the materials handling process – their creation, movement in and out of the basket, and deployment into separate portions of the materials requirement plan – for total inventory visibility.
The joint solution is ideal in the industrial, aerospace, automotive and medical/pharmaceutical industries that are looking to better manage their inventory while protecting delicate materials throughout their processes.
