HID Global Introduces The SlimFlex Laundry Tag to Its Industry-Leading Portfolio of RFID Tags
IRVINE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions,
today announced the addition of its industry and logistics SlimFlex™
Laundry tag solution to the expanding SlimFlex
Tag family of broadband UHF radio frequency identification (RFID)
transponders. This introduction provides integrators with a rich
feature-set of RFID
tags that deliver the characteristics of the SlimFlex tag's (News - Alert)
durability and flexibility in a format ideal for automated tracking and
inventory for commercial laundry and health care linens and supplies.
HID Global's SlimFlex Laundry tags withstand the chemical exposure and
high temperatures of repeated commercial washing, drying and pressing
cycles, as well as medical-grade sterilization procedures. The small,
thin, flexible white strip-shaped tag can be discreetly sewn into the
hem of clothing or linens, unnoticeable to users during everyday
operations. With a long read range of up to 8.2 ft. (2.5 m), SlimFlex
Laundry tags enable automated sorting, inventory and accounting for
commercial cleaners, and improved tracking and infection control
processes for health care linens and supplies.
"The SlimFlex Laundry tag design with resilient composite materials
delivers excellen durability characteristics, creating limitless
possibilities for UHF tag placement and performance," said Richard
Aufreiter, director of product management for Identification
Technologies with HID Global. "HID Global is excited about the potential
that the patent-pending SlimFlex Laundry tag has to help optimize health
care and commercial laundry operations."
Building upon HID Global's successful LogiTag™
family of LF and HF tags, SlimFlex Tags with UHF technology enhance
the potential for laundry and medical asset tracking and automation
systems. The unique thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) used in SlimFlex
housings is made from the same materials used to manufacture automobile
pipes and hoses with the ability to tolerate repeated bending or
torsion, while maintaining excellent performance characteristics.
All SlimFlex tags are waterproof and food compatible; they provide high
resistance to aggressive liquids and UV rays; and the tags deliver
reliable performance and reading stability in high heat and sub-freezing
temperatures. SlimFlex Laundry tags also provide added heat resilience,
withstanding up to 428° F (220° C) during ironing.
HID Global's SlimFlex Laundry Tag is available immediately.
