Bairstow to afix HF RFID tags to entire product line

Bairstow Lifting Products Co. is turning to RFID to help its customers better utilize asset tracking and inspection control features for its product line of rigging supplies and fall protection solutions. Starting this month, Bairstow will affix HF RFID tags to every product it manufacturers at its facility in Atlanta. Carey Hanson, sales manager at Bairstow, says his firm will consume about 25,000 tags during its first year of full tagging.

The solution leverages UPM Raflatac’s HF MiniTrack RFID tags and two customized, low-profile, small-format tags developed by Marnlen that affix to existing tags and Bairstow’s metal and non-metal rigging and fall protection solutions. Bairstow will pay about $6 for each metal tag, and about $2.50 per tag for the non-metal applications.

Bairstow won’t raise prices on its product line to cover costs, instead recognizing the value-add that RFID-enabled products will have for its customer base.

“The concept provides out customers really a means of tracking their products and makes the process of performing physical inspections paperless,” he says. “It’s a value-added feature for our product line.”

Customers can use handheld RFID readers to scan tags in the field, streamlining the certification process and eliminating the physical paperwork and human error associated with manual processes. They also can integrate data into their backend systems, improving asset tracking and equipment uptime.

“We were able to find a cost effective means of applying this tag so that most of the costs were absorbed by us,” says Hanson. “We were enhancing our product to better our customers, and they should see little to no increase in price. In terms of what the RFID world is used to seeing in terms of applying millions of labels, we’re small potatoes. But to the same degree, it’s a neat integration of technology into our products.”
