Inlay Innovation: New Custom Inlay Brand from Metalcraft

We specialize in offering a complete RFID solution to our customers. That is why we are proud to add our industry-leading RFID customization capabilities to our ability to design, develop and manufacture custom RFID inlays. That’s good news since the inlay is the most critical part of an RFID tag. We are introducing our new brand, Inlay Innovation. 

With Inlay Innovation, Metalcraft now offers a custom 360° approach to RFID construction. We design everything but the chip in-house, ensuring that every component of your RFID tag fits together perfectly. And being chip agnostic, our custom designs can fit any chip that you need. 

We understand how everything fits together, from the big picture to the fine details. That is how we can create custom inlays tailored to your application, offering enhanced tag performance and efficiency. We can find that “one in a million” custom design, often in less time than other companies would take to find you a good stock design.

  • Shear testing the bond strength of the conductive adhesive of the chip and antenna
  • Temperature exposure tests
  • Inlay design services
  • Contract converting services
  • Prototyping

The only thing “mini” about this tag is its size! With a smaller footprint and lower profile, the Onsite Printable Universal Mini RFID Tag easily fits where other tags may be too large and obtrusive and still gives incredible read ranges compared to other tags in its class.
