Ulster Carpets has ordered 10,000 tags from CoreRFID as part of the expansion of an automated system which has helped to boost efficiency. This will help control production at its Northern Ireland headquarters. Ulster is the supplier of Axminster and Wilton carpets to the world market. CoreRFID delivers RFID systems to identify, assign, audit, and track.

At Ulster’s state-of-the-art dyehouse and energy centre, yarn is dyed to meet the specific colour requirements of every individual carpet. The yarn is then wound on to individual bobbins and placed on the loom to be woven. In the past, each bobbin held the same length of yarn but, as some carpets used more of one particular colour, the loom had to be stopped to replace a bobbin, creating delays in the weaving process. The labels on each bobbin were also easily lost. RFID technology plays an integral role in a system, introduced in 2008, that is more intuitive to the exacting requirements of each carpet being woven. The RFID tag on each individual bobbin provides essential information from Ulster’s database that is critical to the weaving process. This information can be accessed by staff using hand-held RFID scanners and has helped create a more streamlined system, according to CoreRFID.

The success of the system and the company’s growth has led to a new order of 10,000 new tags from CoreRFID.

“We manufacture carpet for projects across the world so accuracy and speed are critical. Using RFID technology within our own state-of-the-art systems has enabled our business to create an efficient process that saves both time and money,” Paul Richardson, yarn supply manager at Ulster said.

“RFID is a simple and very cost-effective technology that offers a high return on investment. The products are already very resilient and can last for many years. The collaboration with Ulster shows how RFID can be integrated with existing IT systems to help manufacturers to achieve better control of production, reduce errors and improve quality and efficiency,” Richard Harrison, technical sales director at CoreRFID, which installed the original system said.
