Industry segments: Automotive, Aviation, Beauty & Personal Care, Industrial Applications, Logistics
Avery Dennison Smartrac’s Midas Flagtag® is designed for item-level tagging on diverse surfaces, especially metallic surfaces like foil packaging, and offers excellent performance in less demanding physical environments.
Midas Flagtag is a cost-efficient RFID (UHF) on-metal solution for product or part authentication, supply chain & asset management, when compared to other foam-based inlays and hard tags designed for use in tougher environmental conditions.
Midas Flagtag has an innovative small form factor with a total size of 60 x 21 mm when used as a standard flat paper tag. Its special feature is that a flag can be created at the end of tag with a final paper tag size of 43 x 21 mm after folding, and with an exposed flag size of 17 x 21 mm. The folded part of the tag sticks out of the metal like a flag, and the attached antenna part uses the metal surface as part of the antenna structure to increase the performance of the tag. Read distances of over 10 meters can be achieved, depending on the geometry and size of the metal object. The tags are compatible with RFID printers for easy printing and encoding.
Our inlays and tags are compliant with ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management and ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management, which ensure a reliable and state-of-the-art product that meets a variety of application needs, especially in the retail environment.
