TAGSYS is a ground-breaking RFID systems company that builds products uniquely suited for the textile services market, said Jeff Markman, President of POSITEK. The products introduced enable textile services companies to gain a competitive advantage through labor reduction and lowered merchandise consumption costs. TAGSYS RFID delivers item-level tracking that provides textile service companies with the ability to guarantee order accuracy to their customers.
Each product in TAGSYS portfolio is specifically designed to align with a textile service company's operational needs while meeting the rigorous and rugged requirements found only in these types of applications:
Encapsulated Tag Family
The ARIO 370L-HL and ARIO 370L-DL ISO 15693 tags are uniquely designed to withstand extreme humidity, temperature, pressure and chemical applications. Each tag is guaranteed to survive 200+ wash cycles ensuring durability and high performance beyond the life of the laundered item. By utilizing a technology that significantly improves performance in electrically noisy environments, the new tags perform up to 20% better than the previous generation of tags.
Medio L400 Stations
Both the Medio L400 reader and textile services antenna series are designed for the rugged industrial applications found within processing plants. Each product is tested and tuned to accurately track various types of items - ranging from stacked linens to hanging uniforms. The Medio L400 delivers industry-leading performance with processing speeds up to six times faster and 40% greater read ranges than earlier TAGSYS readers.
TS400 RFID Tunnel
The latest release of TAGSYS best-selling tunnel line, the TS400, seamlessly integrates RFID technology with existing factory automation equipment and processes. The TS400 can read multiple items at once in bulk or stacks, up to two times faster than the previous generation tunnel, allowing operators to maintain traditional line speeds used in textile plants. Performance accuracy is achieved through a patented three dimensional antenna architecture that provides 99.9%+ accurate read rates.
The textile service market has some of the most stringent requirements for environmental ruggedness. TAGSYS tags and hardware have been designed and field-tested to exceed the requirements of companies working on cleaning processes for medical uniforms, work garments, bed sheets, covers and towels for hotels, linens for restaurants, industrial floor mats and mops, and personal garments. The focus on specific market requirements has fostered significant adoption within textile service companies for over ten years.
The Textile Services market is one of the fastest adopters of RFID technology, said Drew Nathanson of Venture Development Corporation (VDC). We expect to see continued growth in excess of 30% per year within this industry as companies like TAGSYS continue to deliver robust and scalable solutions that are strongly aligned with the industry's requirements and preferences.
TAGSYS will demonstrate the entire textile service offer in booth #J73, Hall 8, at TEXCARE International in Frankfurt, Germany from May 31st to June 4th.
