Japanese ICT company Fujitsu Frontech North America introduced Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) RFID tags for industrial garments and flat linens.
The company is also exporting fashion tag for formal wear, high fashion apparel, garments, and accessories.
Fujitsu said the WT-A522L and WT-A522LA fashion tags are about the size of a typical shirt collar. These are virtually invisible when installed.
These tags are designed for permanent installation into fashion apparel, suits, formal wear, and jeans.
Measuring only 55mm x 10mm x 0.3 mm, the WT-A522L tag can easily be sewn into hems, seams, or under manufacturers’ labels and is home wash, dry-clean, and ironing safe.
Fujitsu will also offer the WT-A522LA with a strong adhesive for attachment to shoes, handbags, and accessories.
For industrial applications, Fujitsu introduced WT-A533 tag.
Fujitsu will be showing the family of washable RFID tags at RFID Journal LIVE! 2016 on May 3-5, 2016, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida in booth # 512.
“UHF RFID technology will significantly reduce the labor cost compared to single garment processing at tuxedo and high fashion rental companies,” said Randy Fox, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc.
“Also, fraud and counterfeiting in high fashion apparel is on the rise. Including an ‘invisible’ RFID tag in high-value garments and accessories will provide positive confirmation of an item’s authenticity and also help reduce incidents of fraud.”
