Using RFID to track and identify lifting gear
UK-based RUD Chains Ltd.‘s latest radio frequency identification (RFID) technology helps users track and identify chain slings and other lifting components.
RFID technology enables users to track, identify, inspect and trace equipment embedded with a chip giving a unique identification number which is then tracked through a RUD-ID-easy-check reader. The reader captures the unique identification number and transfers it to the RUD-ID-net application on a PC.
RUD is a leading manufacturer of lifting applications and has been producing chains and components for over 130 years.
