Perfect for tracking returnable containers such as pallets, crates or totes, Metalcraft’s Standard RFID Tag attaches directly to non-metal assets. The tag’s construction protects the inlay by sealing it from environmental conditions that could affect the RFID tag’s performance while subsurface printing includes variable data such as barcode and/or human readable numbers.

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.


Potential Applications for RFID Labels

Asset Tracking – the asset id number programmed into the RFID tag plus the barcode and human readable number Metalcraft’s Standard RFID 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 Standard RFID 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 Standard RFID 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.
