When you’re mounting RFID tags on metal surfaces or metal products, you should be aware that if you use non metal mount RFID tags, your system will not function as desired as the metal will detune any passive RFID tag that is not designed to be placed on metal. Using tags that are specifically calibrated to the materials you need to track makes reading, tracking, and inventorying them easier and provides for greater read range. Metal mount RFID tags are typically rugged, difficult to damage, and easy to weld, screw or otherwise attach.
We offer metal-mount RFID tags that are specifically developed to perform optimally when attached to metal objects. You can use them to track computers and IT assets, tools, machinery, returnable containers and other metal items. These tags usually provide an offset from the surface of the tagged item (they are thicker than regular smart labels) and often are tuned to overcome the metal presence. Mount on metal tags come in various form factors and often are encapsulated.
