RAIN RFID Tyres Masterclass

RAIN RFID adoption continues to accelerate beyond the supply chain into the whole product lifecycle, as tyre companies, amongst others, seek profit from the advantages that derive from being able to track products from cradle to grave. This shift places significant challenges on tag design and on the process of tag embedding and reading.

This masterclass will provide you with practical knowledge on how to embed RAIN RFID tags into tyres on an industrial scale.

Created for the tyre market by the RAIN Alliance and its members, this one-day course is designed to enable companies to understand the physical, environmental and technical challenges of embedding RAIN RFID technology into tyres.

It is specifically designed for tyre industry engineers, technicians, and technical leaders in charge of making their industry ready to equip tyres with sustainable RFID tags.

Why Attend?

Created for the tyre market and delivered by RAIN Alliance members with practical experience in this industry, this one-day course will enable you to:

  • Understand the physical, environmental, and technical challenges of embedding RAIN RFID technology into tyres.
  • Learn best practices to efficiently embed RFID tag in tyres and understand how it can enable identifying tyres from cradle to grave and build connected services.
