Mounting or embedding RFID tags on metal surface is always a puzzle for the uninformed. Metal surfaces will block the energy emitted from RFID readers and create interference for RFID tag antennas, which means the RFID tag isn’t able to work efficiently or at all; however, specific RFID tags will work around metal surfaces.
RFID manufacturers have special technology that allows RFID to work when attached to metal surfaces or embedded in metal products. As long as you choose the correct RFID equipment which called the RFID anti-metal tag for your situation and application, you won’t need to worry about interference from metal.
Here’s a few tips to help you get known of the RFID anti-metal tag:
1. What industries are using RFID anti-metal tags?
RFID on anti-metal tags are perfect for asset and tool tracking in medical devices for healthcare or in hospital. With the RFID anti-metal tags, it is easy and fast to manage all the tools in short time and improve the efficiency and safety. Besides, anti-metal RFID tags are also adapted to laptops & servers in IT (information technology), industrial manufacturing, oil & gas pipelines, vehicle tracking identification, and many other industry verticals. With the recent developments in RFID technology, the possible applications of anti-metal RFID tags are expansive in scope.
2. What sort of conditions and environments are anti-metal tags suitable for?
Because so many metal surfaces are exposed to harsh conditions, many RFID anti-metal tags are specially designed and equipped to withstand harsh conditions. These rugged RFID tags are typically encased within a hard shell and will survive hard impacts, moisture exposure, and extreme temperatures.
3. How can I attach these RFID anti-metal tags to different metal surfaces?
Since the employment of anti-metal RFID tags vary greatly across different industries, manufacturers provide rfid tags suitable for the environments of your applications. Each style of RFID anti-metal tag has a unique method of attachment.
4. Hard Tags
Hard tags give you the greatest variety of options for affixing the RFID tag to a metal surface. For instance, the Confidex Ironside tag can be welded to a surface ensuring a more permanent hold. The Ironside tag, along with most other RFID hard tags, can also be affixed to surfaces with screws, pop rivets, and industrial adhesives.
5. Embeddable Tags
Other RFID tags like the Xerafy Dash can be embedded within metal objects before and after the point of manufacture, at which point they are sealed with epoxy to provide extra protection. This method of application along with the small size of the tag makes it popular in healthcare and other industries tracking small tools.
6. Printable & Flexible Tags
If you need printable RFID tags that work with metal, a few RFID tag manufacturers offer tags that attach directly to metal surfaces with adhesive. Several of these RFID tags feature a paper face, so you can print private logos, product information, or scannable barcodes directly on the label. If you need a paper label RFID tag that can still withstand harsh environments, anti-metal tag offers flexible RFID tags allowing them to adhere to curved surfaces.
