Fujitsu super slim washableWT A533 Linen tag

FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., a leader in innovative technology and front-end solutions, has announced today that it has developed new antenna technology to create washable UHF RFID tags 30% to 40% smaller than current tags, allowing them to be inserted into the smallest seams of washable items. The new fifth generation “super-slim” washable RFID linen tag is targeted for availability in the fourth quarter of 2018. Fujitsu will debut the new “super-slim” tag, as well as their WT-A533 Linen tags and WT-A533L Fashion tags, at RFID Journal Live on April 10-12, 2018, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, booth #1615.

“Fujitsu’s advanced engineering and antenna technology enables us to create the most state-of-the-art solutions for washable RFID tags in the world. We are listening to our customers who have requested reducing the width of our tags to allow easier insertion into garments and linens,” says Michi Sugawara, President and CEO of Fujitsu Frontech North America. “After extensive design and optimization, we have created the new super-slim linen tag. This new tag demonstrates our commitment to design innovation and will provide greater customer satisfaction by enabling manufacturers to easily integrate our tags in a broader range of products.”

For industrial garment and linen applications, Fujitsu Linen tags are designed for heavy-duty industrial laundries. Like its predecessors, the WT-A533 Linen tag, the new super-slim linen tag, has advanced antenna and mechanical design which gives it extra strength and reliability in heavy-duty industrial garment and flat linen laundry applications. Customers will have the ability to perform bulk reading of hundreds, even thousands, of articles simultaneously in seconds with very high reliability and bulk read density. Bulk reading enables streamlined automated processes, significant reductions in labor costs, and improved overall return on investment.
