The perfect solution for tracking assets on metal or non-metal surfaces that do not allow for attachment directly to the asset. The construction protects the inlay from environmental conditions that could affect the performance of the RFID tag. Reusable hang tags are attached to the asset using mechanical fasteners (i.e., plastic ties) and can be removed and reattached. Great for work-in-process and returnable containers.
All Metalcraft RFID tags are designed with our proven durability, ready to withstand repeated usage in rugged environments, generating a greater ROI for your business. Each tag can be programmed to match the variable information printed on the label. Subsurface digital printing is available which ensures crisp details on even the most complex logos for maximum clarity. Four color processing is available for limitless color and design options.
How far can you track an RFID tag?
The short (yet accurate) answer to this question is - it depends. The read range of an RFID tag depends on a number of different factors including the inlay used in the RFID tag, the construction of the tag itself, the surface of the item being tracked, i.e., plastic vs metal, and the environmental conditions the RFID tag is expected to withstand.
Potential Applications for RFID Hang Tags
Asset Tracking – the asset id number programmed into the RFID tag plus the barcode and human readable number on Metalcraft’s RFID Hang Tags can be used to track information about the asset the tag is attached to.
Returnable Containers – Metalcraft’s RFID Hang 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 Hang 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.
