Fujitsu to Demonstrate New “Super-Slim” Washable RFID Linen Tags
Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., a leader in innovative technology and front-end solutions, has announced today that Fujitsu has developed a new line of washable UHF RFID tags only 7 millimeters wide, 30% smaller than current tags, allowing them to be more easily inserted into the seams of washable items. Fujitsu will debut the new “super-slim” tags, as well as their WT-A533 Linen tags and WT-A533L Fashion tags, at the EXPOdetergo 18th International Exhibition, Hall 1 booth # V10, on October 19-22, 2018, at the Fiera Milano Convention Center, Milan, Italy. The Fujitsu “super-slim” washable RFID Linen tags are targeted for availability in the first quarter of 2019.

“Fujitsu has been creating RFID solutions for over 20 years. Our engineering and design teams possess sophisticated engineering, design and antenna optimization intellectual property,” says Michi Sugawara, President and CEO of Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. “By combining this know-how plus our skills in high-volume, fully automated manufacturing systems, Fujitsu is able to break through barriers that other companies cannot achieve.”

In addition to the new antenna design, the new super-slim Linen tag has a new, state-of-the-art mechanical design which allows for greater durability in industrial laundry environments. Customers will have the ability to perform bulk reading of hundreds, even thousands, of articles simultaneously with very high bulk read density. Bulk reading enables high-speed, streamlined automated processes, significant reductions in labor costs, and improved overall return on investment.
