Foam Spacer Resolves Metal Readability Issue

While RFID technology has firmly established itself in the logistics sector, its use on metallic surfaces in particular continues to pose a major challenge.

When the RFID labels are directly attached to metal, readability drops nearly to zero. The ((rfid))-Foam label by Schreiner LogiData solves this problem with a spacer made of a special foam.

The ((rfid))-Foam label separates the RFID antenna from the metallic substrate by means of a spacer and thus enables trouble-free read/write operations. The spacer consists of high-grade industrial foam and is particularly durable and resistant. The RFID label itself has an adhesive area which enables direct attachment to a metallic surface.

The flexible, low-cost ((rfid))-Foam label can be equipped with a wide range of chip technologies and inlay sizes. This makes the label equally suitable for marking storage locations and loading aids as well as metal containers and cage pallets in logistics and identification of metallic parts and components in manufacturing. In addition, the ((rfid))-Foam label helps simplify and accelerate asset management, service and customer support processes.

The label can be customized with bar codes, plain text and logos. Additional security features such as holograms, BitSecure codes or color-shifting inks may be integrated as well.
