Faster, further, more
The latest generation of tags ensure that thousands of items can be scanned in just seconds. Allowing for efficient tracking at any time in the process cycle. Each item is individually tracked, enabling you to see the big picture as well as the details.
Knowledge is power
UHF tags are the ideal tool to monitor and control all aspects of a laundry from financial planning and production thought to transportation and stock control. No wonder more and more industrial laundries are switching to use UHF RFID tags. These tags are the source of the data that helps deliveries to be on time, accurate and to the right place – no more emergency trips to customers. Enabling an increase in production efficiency, managing of “silent” or “sleeping” stocks and on garments, illegible barcodes will become a thing of the past.
Through tracking and tracing you can see exactly what has been washed and returned, which items have to be rewashed or repaired, who has damaged stock and even who is hoarding. Data is being constantly generated and Textilligence will turn this into beneficial information. The time old question asked in all laundries of “where are my ….” can now be quickly answered.
For hospitals or hotels that use textile items, the potential security aspect of the tags can be a good reason to switch to UHF RFID. As the end customer can also read the tags, the UHF chips allow him to simply and quickly manage and control inventory on site without the need for counting. Hospitals, hotels, and textile rental companies invest large amounts of money in their linen. However, it is also worthwhile investing in management systems to control this investment. UHF RFID help achieve faster handling of linen and reduces human errors, as visual identification of stock becomes unnecessary. It also gives you invaluable information about the life cycle of your linen, improving future purchasing decisions. All these elements eventually lead to a saving of costs, giving a good ROI, even if the tags are used to track inexpensive items. Accounting specialists know that it makes no sense to compare the price of a tag to the price of linen.
Fujitsu UHF tags are guaranteed to pass through hundreds of wash cycles and survive the high temperature and chemical exposure of the industrial laundry. Think of the water, hot chemicals, ironing & drying above 200 degrees and presses running at over 50bar (700psi).
As everyone gets a better understanding of the speed of logistics, the deployment of UHF technology creates closer cooperation between the customer and the laundry. Guesswork now turns into real data. Increasingly, UHF tags are also becoming a unique selling point for laundries. Today’s UHF RFID tags are so advanced that they can be used perfectly in both flat linens from hotels and hospitals, as well as robust work wear for contractors and heavy industry.
