Positek RFID Technology Awarded Patent

Positek RFID, a provider of RFID solutions and integration services for the textile maintenance industry, has announced that it has been awarded a patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for its portal RFID technology. Positek RFID's Cyclone and Tornado portals enable companies to process large volumes of textiles efficiently, quickly and accurately, the company reports.

Positek RFID provides volume-tracking solutions for the textile maintenance industry. Any textile that has an RFID tag embedded in it can be loaded onto conveyor belts or into carts, containers, slings or other bulk moving solutions, and can be scanned via one of the company's portals or tunnels.

"Our patented RFID technology provides a competitive advantage over other solutions available in the marketplace and is unique in textile management," said Jeffrey Markman, Positek RFID's president, in a prepared statement. "The advances we've made in RFID have a deep effect in the efficiency, processing and filling of orders for many companies that manage inventory around the United States. We are very proud to contribute to the textile industry's advancements in innovation."

Positek RFID's Cyclone and Tornado RFID reader portals can scan thousands of RFID-tagged items within seconds. The readers' design limits reading outside of the portals and concentrates the signal where it is needed most.
