Avery Dennison RFID and Xtreme RFID have collaborated to create the RFID-based Xtreme Metal Tag. Avery Dennison RFID’s AD-843 is encased in plastic via a custom injection molding process developed by Xtreme RFID. The finished Xtreme Metal Tag is 5.75L x 2.4W x 0.31H inches.
It offers a minimum 6-foot read range on metal substrates and can be used in a variety of applications such as solid waste & recycling, material handling and asset tracking. In solid waste handling, steel dumpsters are tagged and RFID readers onboard collection trucks identify the tagged dumpster via its Xtreme Metal Tag’s pre-encoded identification number. The reader notes the date and time of pickup, and if the load is weighed, the weight of the trash is collected, and then associates it with that specific dumpster in the company’s backend database for analysis.
