4JET intros laser marking solutions for the 'Internet of Tires'

Jan. 18, 2017
4JET Technologies is a marking solution provider for enabling connected tires, with several product innovations in this field.

In the near future, the majority of tires will carry a QR/DMC code and a RFID transponder for in-plant and life cycle traceability, as well as tire connectivity. It is said the tire industry requires seamless solutions for data handling, production machinery to create markings and install RFID transponders, and ID solutions for the use in factories and the field.

The SCANNECT mobile app enables tire marking with a QR code.

German laser system integrator 4JET Technologies GmbH (Alsdorf, Germany), which supplies laser systems for processing delicate technical surfaces for the tire industry, is a solution provider for enabling connected tires, with several product innovations in this field. Its product offerings include the SCANNECT QR code marking system for code reading with the newly developed SCANNECT mobile app, as well as tire handling modules for two-sided engraving. And the company is introducing its solutions for enabling innerliner surface cleaning and RFID installation.

"Today, the Internet of Tires—or Tire Industry 4.0—may just sound like buzzwords, but clearly tire makers are increasingly integrating retail and lifecycle solutions in their business models," says 4JET CEO Jörg Jetter. "While some tire makers lean toward using low-cost human visible QR/DMC codes, others may prefer RFID technology to enable tire connectivity. At the end of the day, we believe high-value components such as tires will likely carry both technologies to assure seamless connectivity and traceability. To make this happen, the industry requires solutions covering data encoding, production systems, and solutions for reading codes in the factory or the field. We are offering an increasing range of suitable machines, as well as advanced solutions for code reading in factory environments and mobile apps."
