RFID tag for metal surfaces
January 18, 2005
RFID in Japan reports about RFID labels for metal surfaces - a problem area that has and is causing pain for a number of businesses working on implementing RFID in their supply chain:
AICA Kogyo Company and Toppan Forms Co., Ltd. developed RFID labels that can be directly pasted on metal surfaces (like stickers). They are flexible and can be pasted on curved surfaces.
Conventional RFID tags for metal surfaces are thick so as to avoid disturbance of RF signals. AICA Kogyo Company developed a certain magnetic substance that can be used to create a thin layer between a label's sticky surface and RFID chip/antenna.
