RFID Opportunities Grow when Smart Labels get Tough


Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology has revolutionized automated data capture and item and asset tagging applications by providing accurate, real-time information in a host of use cases and environments. There is proven value for using RFID to track, manage and protect assets, and adoption has been expanding significantly as a result, helped greatly by continued innovation that has enabled RFID to be used to identify more types of objects.

The value of RFID programs increases with the volume of items that can be tagged and tracked. Today the number of RFID-suitable items is set to expand exponentially because of continued innovation – specifically because of new read-on-metal smart labels that are flexible enough to be applied to almost any object and provide users the ability to produce RFID asset labels with variable information on demand.

This white paper highlights some of the leading use cases and benefits for read-on-metal smart labels and provides background information about Titanium Metal Skin from Xerafy, which enables entire new categories of products and components to be RFID enabled because it is the smallest and thinnest read-on-metal RFID smart label on the market.
