For the uninitiated, as well as the knowledgeable, mounting or embedding RFID tags on metal is a difficult task. Metal surfaces reflect RFID reader radiation and cause interference for RFID tag antennas, preventing the tag from receiving power and transmitting data; nevertheless, certain RFID tags can work around metal surfaces. RFID companies have developed unique technology that allows RFID to work on metal surfaces and even within metal items. You won't have to worry about metal interference if you buy the right RFID equipment for your situation and application.
What industries are employing RFID technology on metal?
mount made of metal RFID tags are ideal for asset and tool tracking in medical devices, laptops and servers in IT (information technology), industrial manufacturing, oil and gas pipelines, automobile tracking identification, and a variety of other industries. Metal mount RFID tags have a wide range of uses thanks to recent advancements in RFID technology.
Many RFID on-metal tags are carefully built and equipped to survive extreme circumstances because so many metal surfaces are exposed to them. These tough RFID tags are usually protected by a hard shell and can withstand collisions, dampness, and high temperatures.
What is the best way to affix these anti-metal rfid tags to various metal surfaces?
Manufacturers produce tags suitable for the surroundings of your applications because the use of metal mount RFID tags varies widely across industries. Each form of on-metal tag has its own attachment method.
RFID Hard tags are a tough RFID tag with an impact-resistant housing and an ultrasonically welded seal that protects the subsurface printed label and RFID inlay from hostile environments, such as UV rays. RFID tag that is tough and tamper-proof. Bulletproof, tamperproof, and impossible to modify electronically. Waterproof and engineered to withstand severe temperatures, hard RFID tags are also available.
DO RFID tag manufacturers provide you with the widest range of alternatives for affixing the tag to a metal surface or an extremely high-temperature environment, as well as a number of attaching methods for various applications. Magnet screws, pop rivets, and industrial adhesives are examples.
Mechanical fasteners (standard) and/or adhesives are used to secure the item (optional).
The DO RFID tag manufacturer offers a wide choice of RFID Hard Tags to fulfill the needs of every organization. Our product line is divided into three categories: UHF hard tags, HF/NFC hard tags, and Tag Chips.
UHF RFID Hard Tags come in a variety of sizes and can be used for a variety of applications. For example, tags that can be used directly on metal surfaces, tags that can withstand high temperatures, compact tags, and so on. Special Hard Tags, such as seal tags and tags for temperature-sensitive products, are also available.
The 13.56 MHz HF/NFC Hard Tags are often used for asset management, applications that are exposed to varied weather conditions and rigorous handling, and to prevent tampering, among other things.
How can you choose RFID Hard Tags for your project?
Which RFID Hard Tag is best for your application is determined by a number of criteria, including:
Requirements for reading
The tagged object's material
Type of application
What is the price of an RFID Hard Tag?
In the market, an RFID hard tag costs ten to twenty dollars, but DO RFID tag manufacturers can supply more eco-friendly and long-lasting RFID hard tags. We are a company that specializes in the creation of RFID tags. It has extensive experience with RFID tags of various sizes and standards (such as American Standard, European Standard, and others), as well as customization and a relatively high-cost performance.
Embeddable RFID Tags are designed to be implanted within assets and can be used for a variety of purposes, including tool tracking, asset tracking, and pallet monitoring. These tags are usually able to survive extreme conditions.
If putting an RFID tag on the surface of an item would make it difficult to use or operate, embedding the tag is probably the best solution. Tagging tools are one of the best instances of this. Most hand tools, regardless of industry, will need to be used frequently, and an RFID tag attached on the surface would make this difficult. Scalpels, wrenches, hammers, and even landscaping equipment are regularly tracked with embedded RFID tags.
Embeddable RFID chip tags are also commonly utilized in difficult situations where the tag could be pushed from the asset's surface and lost. Machinery, close proximity to other assets, or even extreme weather conditions could all contribute to this. In these instances, the RFID tag must be safeguarded, and embedding is one of the finest ways to do so.
If the application was customer-facing and the tag might be damaged or removed by individuals, embeddable RFID tags would be advantageous. Inventory tracking in retail stores is an example of this. The RFID tag is generally embedded into the sales/price tag by manufacturers that want to tag apparel for faster and more accurate inventory management. Most buyers do not disturb these tags because they are not easily seen or recognized, and they may be simply removed after purchase.
A flexible printable RFID tag is your best option if you need printable RFID tags that operate with metal. The paper front of these printable flexible foam tags allows you to print private logos, product information, or scannable barcodes directly on the label. Metal Tag offers flexible RFID tags that can attach to curved surfaces and are produced in flexible RFID tags that can survive severe environments.
Where can I buy flexible foam anti-metal labels?
As the market accepts flexible foam anti-metal labels, users are more concerned about how to choose flexible metal inhibitory labels. The following successful experiences will assist users better choose flexible RFID anti-metal tags:
1. Choose a RFID label that is compatible with your printer (encoder). The label type you choose must be compatible with your printer (encoder) and application environment. This is crucial for RFID flexible anti-metal labels to work properly. To verify that the tag can function normally, the data transmission rate, memory, antenna design, and tag writing function must all be reviewed. Some label providers may also have differing criteria, or may include patented or non-essential functionalities. You should now request that the provider recommend the most appropriate flexible anti-metal label for your application.
2. Perform a small batch test before ordering huge quantities of RFID UHF electronic tags. You must first get the criteria for the position of the transponder (i.e. RFID tag) from your printer (encoder) manufacturer before you can order bespoke UHF electronic tags. These labels must be able to fully meet your application needs during the sample test or small batch test stage before you decide whether to order big quantities.
3. The RFID tag's storage temperature should be between -60 and 203 degrees Fahrenheit (15.5 and 95 degrees Celsius), and the atmosphere should be stable. Static electricity should not be present in the label's environment; otherwise, the label's performance will be compromised. To reduce the effects of static electricity when attaching RFID UHF electronic tags in a low-humidity environment, use an anti-static cloth or an anti-static mat.
4. Educate personnel on how to successfully print labels. The label printer (encoder) includes a variety of parameter settings for your specific usage scenario, each with its own set of characteristics and RFID technical needs. To eliminate RFID label printing errors, personnel must be adequately taught ahead of time.
5. Make sure the label printer (encoder) is working properly. Adjust the printer (encoder) before the label starts printing to ensure that the label roll has the correct guiding gap and pitch (distance between the two labels) in the printer (encoder). Before printing, each fresh batch of label tape must be modified once. This calibration step can be skipped if the printer is a special label printer with pre-programmed specifications and spacing. Automatic correction is available on some label printers (encoders), making the correcting process easier.
The selection of RFID flexible anti-metal tags has become a vexing issue for most people, particularly for businesses that require specialized special requirements for work in unique circumstances.
