Metalcraft, Technologies ROI Partner on RFID Metal Nameplates

Metalcraft has announced an agreement with Technologies ROI (TROI) to serve the industrial market for radio frequency identification. The licensing agreement combines each company's technologies to produce RFID metal nameplates.

Metalcraft manufactures a variety of customized asset tags, including unique ID (UID), bar-code and/or serialized tags for asset tracking and/or identification, as well as RFID tags, including harsh-environment and metal-mount tags. TROI offers RFID tags for use around oil and gas (including down-hole and sub-sea), corrosive chemicals (Teflon-encapsulated and in-line inspection) and construction sites (to be embedded in tools and road surfaces, including concrete, asphalt, wood, plastic and metal).

"Our partnership with TROI advances Metalcraft's leadership and innovation in durable identification products," said Steve Doerfler, Metalcraft's president and CEO, in a prepared statement. "Metalcraft sees the value our durable RFID products deliver in challenging environments, and we are eager to harness TROI's intellectual property to bring RFID technology's benefits to extremely harsh applications currently relying on metal nameplates."

Patrick King, TROI's founder, added in the prepared statement, "With Metalcraft's universal metal-mount label technology and TROI's patent U.S. 9,122.967, our two leadership positions are brought into beneficial union. We aim to change the nature of metal ID marking for the industry."
