Productivity and IE in Fiber Optic Cable Manufacturing



RFID for Productivity

Sumitomo Electric Lightwave, a North Carolina manufacturer of fiber-optic cables, reports that radio frequency identification has increased its production by 40 percent annually, without requiring the hiring of additional warehouse employees, due to an increase in efficiency of tracking the locations of raw materials. Sumitomo is using the technology to track the materials—such as reels of steel tape and Kevlar yarns, as well as boxes of plastic materials—as they flow through the company's warehouse in Research Triangle Park.
