RFID technology is increasingly being used in various businesses for process automation and optimizing various business operations. RFID tags have proven to be immensely helpful in retail supply chain and logistics as retail is the biggest sector benefitting from RFID-EPC product identification and tracking.
This advanced track and trace technology is gradually being implemented in other spheres of industrial and commercial businesses, namely logistics and manufacturing and Perfect ID Mount On-Metal RFID tags are perfect for that.
The logistics and manufacturing sectors often face several challenges in terms of accurately identifying RTI (Returnable Transportation Items), bins, containers, tools, machinery parts, products, etc. Traditional identification technology such as barcodes and QR codes fell short of the specific needs of identification and real-time tracking, which is now crucial to these sectors. RFID, being an advanced and efficient technology offers all the benefits of barcoding as well as real-time tracking and in-place visibility of assets.
Perfect ID, a Syrma SGS Company, is a leading RFID tag manufacturing company in India and understands that efficient supply chain management is crucial for the success of any business operating in the logistics and manufacturing sectors.
As logistics and manufacturing companies are increasingly turning to advanced technologies like RFID to enhance their operations, Perfect ID, an Impinj Silver Partner based in India, offers mount-on-metal RFID Tags. These Anti-metal RFID tags have emerged as a game-changer, revolutionizing the way goods are tracked and managed in these industries.
Understanding Mount On-Metal RFID Tags
RFID technology offers almost perfect functioning in all kinds of circumstances except in Metal environments, owing to the high amount of interference coming from metal objects. The interference proves to be counterproductive. Perfect ID Mount On-Metal RFID Tags are specialized RFID tags designed to be affixed directly onto metal surfaces. Unlike traditional RFID tags, which are unable to function properly in the presence of metal, Mount On-Metal RFID Tags utilize innovative technology to overcome this limitation. These tags are equipped with a protective layer or spacer (PE foam) that prevents interference from metal, allowing for accurate and reliable data capture. The high conductivity of the tag substrate also helps. High Conductivity Graphene Assembly Film (HCGAF) is one such substrate.
Mount On-metal RFID tags by Perfect ID are fabricated using NXP Ucode 8, Impinj Monza 4QT, Impinj M781, Impinj M7, Impinj M730 etc. as Integrated Circuits and operate on FCC-902-928MHz, and ETSI- 865- 868 MHz, offering optimum performance. These RFID tags support EPC memory of 128 bits and 96 bits and user memory of 0-32 bits.
Benefits of Mount On-Metal RFID Tags
Mount On-Metal RFID tags are specially designed for metal environments. These tags are easy to attach to metal objects such as bins, containers, crates, machine parts metal products in assembly lines, etc. The prominent benefits of RFID mount on-metal tags are as follows:
Perfect ID’s Mount On-Metal RFID Tags are built to withstand harsh environments and rough handling. Their robust construction ensures longevity, reducing the need for frequent replacements and minimizing downtime.
Improved Data Accuracy
Mount On-Metal RFID Tags provide accurate and reliable data capture since these can easily eliminate the interference caused by metal surfaces. Thus, by using mount-on-metal RFID tags, businesses can maintain real-time visibility and traceability of their assets, leading to better decision-making and operational efficiency.
Mount On-Metal RFID Tags are designed to be easily affixed to metal surfaces as well as mounted with screws, simplifying the deployment process. This reduces installation time and costs, allowing for seamless integration into existing systems. One can simply use an RFID reader, fixed or handheld/sled, to interrogate these RFID tags to retrieve the encoded data.
Applications in Logistics
Logistics businesses are required to keep track of all the consignments in and out of warehouses and keeping an updated inventory is crucial. The use of Perfect ID’s anti-metal RFID tags enables accurate identification and tracking of valuable assets, resulting in improved logistics operations.
Mount On-Metal RFID Tags enable accurate and efficient inventory management by providing real-time visibility of goods. RFID tagging of assets allows businesses to track and locate products within their warehouses, reducing the risk of inventory loss or misplacement.
Supply Chain Optimization
Mount On-Metal RFID Tags facilitate seamless tracking of goods throughout the supply chain. From the point of origin to the final destination, companies can monitor the movement of items, ensuring timely delivery and minimizing delays.
By affixing Mount On-Metal RFID Tags to valuable assets, companies can easily track their location, status, and maintenance history. This reduces the risk of asset theft or loss, optimizing resource allocation and minimizing downtime.
Applications in the Manufacturing Sector
Perfect ID’s mount-on-metal RFID tags offer great advantages in the manufacturing sector. Oftentimes, the manufacturing sector is a metal environment and the use of anti-metal RFID tags helps with shielding interference and providing accurate readings.
Mount On-Metal RFID Tags enable the automation of various manufacturing processes. Companies can tag components and equipment with mount-on-metal tags and automate assembly lines, ensuring efficient production and reducing human error.
Mount On-Metal RFID Tags can also be used to track and monitor the quality of raw materials, work in progress, and finished goods. Manufacturing units can thus achieve real-time quality control, identifying defects, and ensuring compliance with industry standards.
Maintenance and Servicing
By tagging machinery and equipment, Perfect ID’s Mount On-Metal RFID Tags simplify maintenance and servicing operations. Businesses can track maintenance schedules, monitor performance, and optimize maintenance resources, minimizing downtime and improving productivity.
To summarize, mount-on-metal RFID Tags have emerged as a powerful tool for optimizing logistics and manufacturing operations. With their ability to overcome metal interference, these tags provide accurate and reliable data capture, enabling companies to enhance efficiency, reduce costs, and improve customer satisfaction.
