There’s a lot of enthusiasm around going green lately. From recycling paper to reducing carbon footprints, companies are now very aware of the impact their business can have on the environment. Yet, have you ever considered how RFID technology would be able to support the green initiative?
RFID has been around for a while, you have probably use it today when you get out of the car park, check out a library book, gain access to your office and maybe to make a payment for your coffee. RFID is used to track many things from retail clothing to livestock. It’s a technology that can provide organizations with unprecedented improved visibility and traceability of items throughout their journey in the value chain.
At Xerafy, in addition to our green logo, we like the fact that our RFID technology is not only allowing businesses to be more efficient but also allowing companies to reduce waste, over consumption and limit the carbon footprint. By enabling more industries to use RFID with the smallest and most rugged tags on the market and working with partners like ThingMagic, Xerafy empowers our customers to do the following: reduce, reuse, and recycle with RFID.
Reducing consumption - RFID tracking of tools and equipment increases product utilization and reduces theft, loss, and requirements for redundant supplies.
Reuse of containers – Tracking returnable transit containers with RFID can ensure containers are returned and managed.
Reuse of tools, and equipment – Utilizing RFID tracking for maintenance and repair calibration records ensures that parts last longer and are verified for quality checks.
Recycle – RFID tracking of parts from point of manufacture to end of life can allow customers to return to manufacturers to recycle or ensure proper disposal is taken.
Xerafy is committed to bringing innovative tag solutions to help our customers meet their individual needs and help the environment. We have a suite of different EPC UHF tags built for industrial markets for reliable identification of on-metal parts, embed-in-metal assets, and versatile tags that can perform over a wide range of materials including metals and plastics.
