Metalcraft’s RFID Flex Hard Tags are specifically designed for assets that need a rugged, yet flexible, polymer RFID tag that is more cost effective than traditional hard tags and has a reliable, consistent read range performance.
Reusable containers, pallets and other mobile assets are exposed to a wide variety of environment and working conditions. Abrasion, UV exposure, dirt and moisture can affect the durability and longevity of your RFID tags.
The RFID Flex Hard Tag is made of high performance, pliable polyester that provides more strength and rigidity than a traditional RFID polyester label but is more formable than a metal or hard plastic tag.
The RFID Flex Hard Tag is ideal for returnable pallets, plastic crates, containers, utility poles or for embedding in injected molded products.
Along with a read range of 22-24 ft on most applications, the RFID Flex Hard Tag is versatile and durable enough for almost any returnable container or harsh environment RFID tracking project.
Potential Applications for RFID Flex Hard Tags
Asset Tracking – the asset id number programmed into the RFID tag plus the barcode and human readable number Metalcraft’s RFID Flex Hard Tags can be used to track information about the asset the tag is adhered to, i.e., laptops, furniture, containers, pallets, equipment and more.
Returnable Containers – Metalcraft’s RFID Flex Hard Tags are perfect for tracking both the non-metal returnable container itself such as pallets, bins, racks as well as 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 Flex Hard Tags an 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.
