Xerafy participated in the ID World International Congress in Milan last week, using the trade show to officially launch our XS tag series. The XS series is the world’s smallest RFID tag for surgical instruments and tool tracking that has until now been impossible to tag. It was the second year that we have been a part of the show, which covers the entire spectrum of the auto ID industry, from smart card and near field communications to biometrics and RFID.
Our exhibition booth was auspiciously located next toour partner Impinj’s booth, allowing us to demonstrate the read distance of the XS tags attached to several sample surgical instruments and tools. We met many end users and European system integrators who are already working with RFID; they could not believe the small size and thin profile of the XS tags. And they were doublyimpressed by the superior read range when we tested the XS tags.
In addition to the exhibition, Xerafy’s CEO Dennis Khoo presented at the ID World Conference, speaking at a session on wireless identification. Dennis covered trends in embedded RFID to improve asset tracking and identification for MRO, process control and the future of smart asset management. Other conference sessions covered biometrics, wireless sensing, smartcards, secure documents, and data collection.
It was great to return to Milan for our second ID World International Congressto catch up with our customers and European partners Sait, Eximia and iDTronic to name a few. When Xerafy exhibited in 2010 we only had two productlines on display; in just one year’s time, our product portfolio has grown to five distinct product lines for extreme RFID covering a wide variety of industrial applications.
