For decades RFID tag technology has been justifying itself by confirming the existence of assets. But only recently, have passive RFID sensors become a viable tool in confirming how those assets exist.Read more
Here at Metalcraft we produce many types of tags and labels, and we’ve developed many custom products to meet ID challenges.
We know the value of a great tag. So, we are eager to share promising new technology – passive sensor tags.Read more
Customers for RFID tag technology will find numerous options when purchasing tags. Choices usually depend upon the cost, the application and the design requirements more so than aesthetics.
Materials, affixing methods, environments, sizes, and production times are considered while making the choice, as is numbering.Read more
Using electronic numbering, especially EPC codes, allows RFID technology to help identify assets and improve business functions. Financial returns are routinely, if subtly, felt in major infrastructures such as power and utility systems, oil pipeline networks, electrical grids, agricultural enterprises and transportation networks where rugged and portable RFID is often used in the field.
But, asset numbering is equally apparent in enterprises like medicine, manufacturing and retail trade where business is transacted, more or less, under one roof-not to mention its use in transit.
In all of these situations, the ability to track service equipment, tools and product through the use of numbered tags, readers and software is a boon in reducing the cost of inventory. But, ultimately, because of tag/asset numbering, returns also accrue through better management efficiency in WIP, maintenance, worker safety, and compliance certification.Read more
Fixed asset management using RFID tracking is effective in maintaining the viability of any business operation. Whether used for traditional asset inventory of more unconventional implementations, RFID technology use is growing and more efficient than other technologies.Read more
Today, RFID is everywhere in Work in Process (WIP) applications. This partnership leads to benefits in business operations that are life changing. Admittedly, RFID performs very well when it comes to identifying assets through numbers and radio waves even under the most extreme environments of WIP, but beyond its identification function, it touts additional benefits in operational efficiency.Read more
The everyday WIP bugs of manufacturing and logistical commerce are real, everywhere, and anything but fun. The little devils need to be banished. But how? Enter RFID technology. Using compatible software, RFID tags can relay real-time notifications and cause actions to take place to safeguard the manufacturing assets in your WIP.Read more
