Race Timing with RFID

Customizable race bibs to track any running or athletic event

We’ve created an ultra-low profile RFID Race Timing Tag (wearable on people) for athletic events like marathons, races, triathlons and more. Most other RFID race timing tags use an uncomfortable foam backing that can cause unreliable performance data. Our tag adheres to race bibs and is built for great performance and sensitivity to track runners’ splits and times throughout the race. Each FastTrack RFID tag is customizable with colorful text and logos, have an excellent read distance and the thermal-transfer receptive material can be printed on site. These are highly customizable with “just right” engineering…that’s ID Made Better®. 

Metalcraft's RFID Race Timing Tag is a low profile RFID tag that easily adheres to race bibs and has great performance and sensitivity to track runners splits and times throughout the race. Each RFID label is customizable with your text and logo.

Produced with a digital printing process that provides photographic like image quality of detailed logos or special designs, Metalcraft's RFID Credential Tags and Name Badges are the perfect solution when you want your image to leave a lasting impression.

If you’re handling a concert or other event with lines of people awaiting access, use RFID wristbands to quickly and efficiently manage crowd entry. The wristbands feature an RFID inlay to grant access with ease. The wristbands feature an RFID inlay to grant access with ease.

Accidental Discovery Leads to Innovative Application

How an RFID inlay can transform into new, unexpected applications with engineering know-how

What do microwave ovens, Post-it® Notes and Penicillin have in common? Give up? They were all “accidental” discoveries –where an inventor originally intended to pursue another concept entirely, but through careful observation realized they had developed something completely different from their original concept. And the world is a better place because of this, wouldn’t you agree?
