Work-in-Process with RFID

Improve data accuracy, reduce labor time and increase rate of production with WIP solutions

Benefit any business operation with the partnership of WIP and RFID. Using real-time notifications, RFID can help safeguard your systems, for example:

  • Keeping line shutdowns from happening in manufacturing

  • Ensuring healthy animals in agriculture

  • Matching medical treatment to the right patient in healthcare

  • Keeping inventory fresh in retail

  • Monitoring cargo in transportation

  • And so much more!

RFID can make any WIP more agile and efficient, and with an almost endless list of potential applications, it’s a relief to have the RFID deep knowledge and expertise in your partner, Metalcraft. Working together, just like RFID and WIP, we can elevate your solution to one with benefits you may not have even thought of, custom-designed just for you….Now that’s ID Made Better®.

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.

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 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.
