Enso Detego's RFID Software Sharpens Up Quality Management in the Food Processing Industry

Enso Detego's asset management software powers F. Dick's RFID tool tracking and quality control management solution for the food processing industry
Knifeinspector run by Enso Detego Software Zuordnung (PresseBox) (Graz, ) Enso Detego GmbH, one of the leading specialists in Europe for RFID solutions, today announced that F. Dick, one of the world's premier cutlery manufacturer, uses Enso Detego's asset management software for its new ground-breaking RFID tool tracking and quality control management solution for the food processing industry. F. Dick's RFID-based solution for tracking, tracing and quality control of professional tools is based on the new series of Dick MasterGrip RFID and ExpertGrip-labeled professional knives and the Knifeinspector asset management software, based on Enso Detego's asset management software platform.

The RFID-labeled work tools, such as knives, sharpening steels, knife baskets or chainmail gloves, are tracked at pre-defined identification points at food processing premises during the complete work process. The Knifeinspector software surveys status, condition and location throughout a tool's entire life cycle. It uniquely allocates work tools to individuals and tracks the history of tool conditions and movements. Knifeinspector Professional addresses the needs of food processing organizations with complex working processes, which require tracking of tools across several work shifts. Knifeinspector Easy is a solution, which has been designed for food processing organizations or departments with simplified tracking processes, which require only tool release to employees and tool status monitoring.

F. Dick's new RFID system offers compelling benefits to the food processing industry such as compliance with the International Food Standard (IFS), theft prevention with each tool unambiguously allocated to one individual, reduced equipment down time due to damaged or broken tools, and improved worker safety. Manually maintained records, lists and PC tables are no longer required. The system is fully automated and does not interrupt regular processes.

"With this cutting-edge solution, F. Dick introduces a new dimension of quality management to the food processing industry. Knifeinspector Professional and Knifeinspector Easy leverage the synergies between F. Dick's in-depth knowledge of the food processing industry and Enso Detego's market-proven RFID expertise and software capabilities," explains Matjaz Novak, Director Marketing at Enso Detego.

"Our objective was to develop a system for the food processing industry that would facilitate the seamless tracking and management of working tools. Ideally in a contactless and fully automated way, so that it would not be necessary to interrupt regular business processes. I am convinced that with our RFID solution we have done exactly what we set out to do," says Thomas Takacs, Development & Design, F. Dick.

The complete system including RFID-integrated tools, RFID hardware and software can be ordered from RFIDICK, a company 100% owned by F. Dick.
