HID Global

HID Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, recently 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 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 sterilisation 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 excellent 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 optimise 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.
