Asset Tracking with RFID

Endless tags and labels for all your asset tracking needs

Misplaced assets are a challenge for any business, so tracking and keeping order around supplies helps you save valuable time—you’re not wasting time tracking down assets or wasting money replacing equipment you can’t find. Asset tracking labels—whether RFID, barcode or other tracking technology—are designed so the asset can be easily identified and tracked in any environment. Not only is the construction customizable (paper, plastic, metal, etc.), you can also customize your asset tags with text, logos, sequential numbers, barcodes, RFID and more.  

Asset tags are used in a variety of different applications but generally fall into five different categories.

  • Physical Item / Equipment Tracking

  • Theft / Loss Prevention

  • Item Reclamation / Discovery

  • Reports & Records

  • Brand Awareness / Customer Service

Developed using the same premise as our original, the smaller EU Mini utilizes a patented inlay design and passive RFID technology to obtain incredible read ranges on a variety of different materials in the European frequency band (ETSI Band) - metal, plastic, even wood.

The European Universal RFID Asset Tag is a surface-independent tag that uses a unique inlay design and passive RFID technology to obtain excellent read ranges regardless of the surface – metal, plastic, even wood - allowing you to use only one RFID tag for your asset tracking application.

The RFID Server Rack Tag is a great alternative to metal mount options or applications where a standoff will not work.

A versatile and affordable RFID tag made in the USA to fit a wide array of on-metal and standard applications, the Universal MC RFID Tag is available both preprinted and onsite printable to handle whatever asset tagging application you have.

Specifically designed for assets that need a rugged, yet flexible, polymer RFID tag, the RFID Flex Hard Tag is more cost effective than traditional hard tags and has reliable, consistent read range performance.

Metalcraft's RFID Hang Tags are ideal for asset tracking applications on non-metal surfaces that do not allow for attachment directly to the asset. Hang tags are attached to the asset using mechanical fasteners (i.e. plastic ties) rather than an adhesive.

Metalcraft's RFID Standard Single Side RFID Labels are ideal for asset tracking applications on non-metal surfaces that require attachment directly to the asset.

The ReadySense Passive RFID Temperature Sensor Tags are much smaller, thinner, and more flexible than battery-powered sensors, and they are more cost-efficient than active wireless sensing tags.

Perfect for applications that need a bit more than just adhesive, Metalcraft’s Stick and Staple RFID Tag attaches directly to assets with adhesive with the added option of stapling the tag, ensuring the tag stays attached to those hard-to-adhere surfaces while not damaging the inlay.

The Universal RFID Hard Tag features impact-resistant housing combined with an ultrasonically welded seal protects the subsurface printed label and RFID inlay from harsh environments including harmful UV rays. Affixing methods include mechanical fasteners and/or adhesive.

The On-Site Printable Universal Mini RFID Tag is specifically designed to allow easy printing and encoding of RFID tags on-demand, providing a reliable, cost-effective solution for your on-site RFID printing.

Measuring 1 7/8" x 5/8", the Universal Micro RFID Tag is a great solution to your identification projects that require a small RFID tag with great read range. With a tiny footprint and low profile, the Universal Micro RFID Tag easily fits where other tags are too big and obtrusive.

With a smaller footprint and lower profile than the original Universal RFID Asset Tag, the Universal Mini RFID Tag easily fits in smaller places where other tags may be too large.

This revolutionary product line features surface-independent tags with a patented inlay designed to obtain excellent read range regardless of the surface - metal, plastic, even wood.

DuraDestruct RFID Security Tag's specialized construction eliminates the transferability of the RFID tag and incorporates two levels of destructibility. If someone attempts to remove the tag the RFID antenna construction breaks into separate pieces making the read range of the tag mere inches.

DuraDestruct Security RFID Tag's specialized construction for glass surfaces eliminates the transferability of the RFID tag and incorporates two levels of destructibility.

Hang Tags Get Better Using RFID

Hang Tag Composition

Take the RFID hang tag’s composition, for instance.  Most hang tags are made of some type of polymer, perhaps the usual polyester or, more rarely, polypropylene or polycarbonate. They are a bit fatter than the old tags.  According to, the average thickness of a paperboard tags is 0.010 inches.

3 Reasons RFID Tags Maintain Business Health

Intimate association with identification tags came for some at reception during military boot camp.  On issue, the identification tag, or dog tag, bearing the soldier’s name, serial number, blood type and religious affiliation, often, then, was continuously worn throughout the tour of duty. 

In cases too many to mention, the identification tag helped preserve the service person’s health, life and relationship to the world.  It was one source of security for those in the trenches.
