Metalcraft, a veteran producer of durable identification products, announced the launch of its new RFID conversion equipment during the National Property Management Association's National Education Seminar in Minneapolis this week. The company is focused on delivering reusable RFID labels and tags suitable for demanding applications, customized to meet the evolving requirements of the industry. Metalcraft RFID products include bar codes and other subsurface-printed information.
Features of Metalcraft's flexible, RFID converting service include:
- Subsurface printing of logos, copy, bar codes and other fixed or variable data;
- full encapsulation of HF or UHF inlays in polyester, polypropylene, polyethylene or polycarbonate, die cut to a custom size;
- customized attachment options including "hang tags" and isolated constructions for mounting to metal surfaces;
- inlay programming for custom data, UPC or EPC codes with synchronization of the item's printed image and post-programming data verification.
Metalcraft president Steve Doerfler stressed the company's focus on durable, reusable applications, citing Metalcraft labels and tag designs engineered to last as long as the customers' tracked assets.
Integrators play an important role in Metalcraft's RFID labels and tag production, too, as companies transition to RFID systems. According to Doerfler, many companies are exploring how to deliver a return on their RFID investment; Metalcraft's flexibility and hybrid bar code/RFID products are proving important to integrators and end users in this context.
