Are your business involve consistently washing laundry on a large or small scale? RFID laundry tracking may help you. From reducing manual laundry sorting to provide visibility Into inventory quickly and easily, the following are some ways that RFID can help track your laundry:
1, Reduce Manual Laundry Classification
Companies that own many types of textiles have sorting processes for washing purposes. Usually, 2-8 people use different washing tubs to facilitate the washing process
In the RFID clothing management system, an RFID laundry tag is attached to each clothes, and when RFID linen tag passes through the assembly line, the RFID reader sends an interrogation signal and reads RFID laundry tag. After reading RFID linen tag, the software will determine the type of textile to be read and direct it to the appropriate area or machine. The software’s findings can be displayed on the screen so that people can immediately direct textiles or linens to their next destination.
Companies that currently use RFID to help reduce the manual sorting process can greatly reduce the number of people on the sorting line. There is no need to hire personnel to read barcodes or identify linens, only 1-2 people are needed to move the material to the next process of the production line.
2, Provide Accurate Washing Count Records
The washing cycle of each clothing is an important indicator, because the analysis of the washing cycle helps to predict the end of life of the clothing. Most linens or uniforms can only withstand a certain number of high-power washing cycles before they begin to wear and wear. Without a record of washing cycle counts, it is difficult to estimate the service life of the garment, which makes it difficult to plan for the reordering of replacements.
When clothes or linens are discharged from the washing machine, the RFID reader will detect the RFID laundry tag which sewn into the fabric. Next, the cleaning cycle count will be updated in the software database.
3, Provide Visibility To Inventory Quickly And Easily
Companies that cannot view their inventory cannot accurately plan events, conduct effective operations, or prevent items from being lost and stolen either.
RFID tags sewn into textiles can help companies count inventory faster and more efficiently every day. The RFID readers placed in each storage room will continuously take inventory to help accurately indicate where the linen is lost or stolen.
4, Reduce Loss and Theft
Currently, most companies around the world are using a single manual inventory method to try to count lost or stolen textiles. Unfortunately, when employees thousands of textiles, human error occurs.
The unique EPC number on each RFID tag enables the company to identify the exact textiles that were lost or stolen and where they were last interrogated
5, Enable Accurate Check-In and Check-Out System
Renting textiles can be complex unless the company instills a concise method to maintain information such as rental date, due date, customer information, and linen information. An RFID system with software can provide a custom database that not only stores the important information but also prompts the company when the due date is nearing. A system with this capability allows companies to communicate approximate back-in-stock dates to their customers.
