Metalcraft’s RFID Bale Tag is the ideal solution for tagging and tracking any type of bale. Whether it’s for agricultural, cardboard, printing, recycling materials, fabrics or non-wovens, the RFID Bale Tag can easily be attached to any type of bale.
The tag’s polymer construction protects the text and RFID inlay from the elements providing superior tag stability, durability and performance compared to other paper-based RFID tags.
The 5/16” nickel grommet gives additional strength to the tag to ensure tags cannot tear away due to wind or weakening around the attachment point from moisture or wear.
Available in a wide variety of colors, each tag can be custom printed to meet any design specification and provide high contrast and visibility on any bale.
Potential Applications for RFID Bale Tags
Asset Tracking – the asset id number programmed into the RFID tag plus the barcode and human readable number on Metalcraft’s RFID Bale Tags can be used to track information about the asset the tag is attached to.
Returnable Containers – Metalcraft’s RFID Bale Tags are perfect for tracking both metal and non-metal returnable containers such as pallets, bins, racks. RFID Hang Tags can also be used to track the contents of the containers themselves. Automate the process completely using a portal or fixed RFID reader.
Work-in-Process – the number programmed into the RFID tag plus the barcode and human readable on Metalcraft’s RFID Bale Tags can identify a “batch” OR “lot” of product or just simply identify each product obtaining reads at every data collection point as it travels through the production process. And because they are not permanently affixed to the item they can easily be reused thereby maximizing your tag ROI.
