Fujitsu ships more than 2M washable RFID tags in Q1

The market for washable RFID tags appears to be booming. Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. announced this week that it shipped more than two million of its washable RFID tags during the first three months of 2013. Sales of the tags have been so robust that Fujitsu has doubled the production capacity at its manufacturing facility in Japan.

The rugged washable Fujitsu UHF RFID tags, which are manufactured in Japan, are becoming commonplace in the healthcare and hospitality sectors.

The small, flexible RFID tags are attached to garments, linens, mats and accessory items, allowing customers to scan hundreds of articles simultaneously to track their inventory anywhere in a hospital, hotel or at a warehouse. Industrial laundries also use Fujitsu’s RFID tags to reduce operational costs caused by inaccurate shipping and receiving counts and costly manual counting of assets and deliverable items.

“The demand for our new washable RFID tags in healthcare, hotels and hospitality as well as laundries has exceeded even our own expectations,” said Pat Cathey, senior vice president of Fujitsu Frontech North America’s Retail Products Group. “Our manufacturing facility in Japan reacted quickly to the increased demand by doubling capacity while assuring both product quality and reliability that is the hallmark of Fujitsu.”

The washable tags are able to withstand more than 200 washings and the harsh chemicals associated with dry cleaning. They can also withstand temperatures of 250 degrees Fahrenheit for drying and 400 degrees Fahrenheit for ironing, as well as the pressure of water extraction systems.

The rugged, non-magnetizing tag design allows it to be used in MRI rooms as well as typical industrial autoclave systems used for healthcare and hospital sterilization. The small tags are extremely flexible, soft and durable which makes them ideal for flat linen, garments, accessories and a wide variety of laundered healthcare items.

With a reading range of more than six feet and the ability to read hundreds of tags simultaneously, the Fujitsu washable RFID tags represent a significant cost-saving solution compared to bar codes and other RFID systems, which require costly handling and single garment processing. The materials used in the Fujitsu tag are intended for long deployment cycles, allowing the tag to be reused into another garment linen item within the intended life-cycle time, reducing total cost of ownership.
