[photopress:zone_rfisd_tire.jpg,full,alignright]Located on 4,300,000 square feet within the National Economic and Technological Development Zone in Qingdao, Mesnac’s subsidiary SaiLun is credited as being the first tire manufacturer to integrate production, research and demonstration techniques while developing new products.
Mesnac has established long-term cooperation agreements in scientific research with colleges and institutes such as the National University of Defense Technology and Qingdao University of Science and Technology.
Now Advanced ID Corporation, a leading developer of radio frequency identification technology – RFID – has announced the adoption of its RFID tire tag products. Mesnac, owner of SaiLun, has agreed to purchase a minimum of two million RFID tire tags and a quantity of RFID readers from Advanced ID. 10,000 have already been installed and tested.
Mesnac intends to lobby for widespread adoption of RFID technology for use in all tires driven in or made in China. Tracking of tires enables the documentation of the entire life of the tire – from point of origin through retreading and service repairs.
