The Reusable Packaging Association has a new member, Xtreme RFID. The company designs, engineers, and manufactures rugged RFID tags for harsh environments. Its RFID tags fully encapsulate RFID inlays in a one piece plastic housing to provide protection from chemicals, water, impact, temperatures, and other unforgiving elements.
“We manufacture and supply RFID tags for several reusable applications,” explains Mike Lewis, Business Unit Leader at Xtreme RFID. “Being a member of the RPA will help us stay on top of trends and innovations in the industry, and develop opportunities for strategic relationships.”
“Xtreme RFID is a great addition to the association,” comments Jerry Welcome, President, RPA. “Their tags and the reusable containers they track all need to withstand numerous trips through rigorous supply chains. Xtreme RFID tags are a good technology fit for the reusable packaging industry.”
Xtreme RFID customizes tags to meet customers’ exact requirements, including RF performance, footprint, environment, attachment method, encapsulation materials, and visual identification. Many reusable applications utilize the company’s Xtreme Duo tag.
