Trace, Track and Control: High Production Output at Low Costs

Learn how TTC solutions help manufacturers cut cost, cut waste, automate critical manufacturing processes, and increase yields�all critical elements in today�s economic environment.

Careful marking area of interest to be micro-sectioned

To survive and prosper in today�s economy, leading manufacturers must assemble high quality products at the lowest possible cost. The total cost of production must take into account the complete product lifecycle including warranty, recalls, and repairs. Track, Trace, and Control (TTC) systems are an essential element of success in achieving these strategic objectives. These systems are designed to achieve optimal use of materials and resources throughout the manufacturing process.
