Fujitsu Announces Ultra-Thin Washable UHF RFID Tag for Fashion Apparel, Accessories
Fujitsu Frontech North America has announced that it has developed what it calls the thinnest UHF RFID tag for high-fashion apparel, garments and accessories. The new WT-A533L washable UHF RFID Fashion tag mini measures only 7 millimeters in width, enabling fashion apparel manufacturers and garment rental companies to easily insert the tag into garments and high-fashion items without using a pouch or heat-seal tape.
Using an RFID tag in fashion items assures trackability, reduces loss and provides positive item identification, according to the company. Fujitsu showcased the WT-A533L Fashion Tag mini, along with its entire family of washable RFID tags, at RFID Journal LIVE! 2017, held earlier this month in Phoenix, Ariz.
The new WT-A533L Fashion tag mini is manufactured with transparent materials, the company reports, which makes it virtually invisible when sewn into clothing or accessories. Measuring only 7 millimeters by 55 millimeters by 0.3 millimeter, the Fashion tag mini can easily be sewn into sheer garments, lace, silks, formalwear, T-shirts and accessories. The new tag is designed for permanent installation into high-value fashion apparel, the company adds, and is safe for home washing, dry-cleaning and ironing. Fujitsu expects the tag to become production-available this summer.
