FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., a leader in innovative technology and front-end solutions has announced today that Fujitsu has developed their thinnest UHF RFID tag for high fashion apparel, garments and accessories. The new WT-A533L washable UHF RFID Fashion tag mini is only 7 millimeters wide, which enables fashion apparel manufacturers and garment rental companies to easily insert the new tag into garments and high fashion items without using a pouch or heat-seal tape. Using an RFID tag in fashion items assures trackability, reduces loss and provides positive item identification. Fujitsu will be showing the new WT-A533L Fashion Tag mini as well as its entire family of washable RFID tags at the RFID Journal Live Conference and Exposition on May 9-11, 2017, at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix Arizona in booth #630.
“Tracking fashion garments, formalwear, and accessories is critical to a successful garment rental enterprise. The new, slimmer, Fashion tag mini allows tags to be easily attached to existing inventory items providing greater flexibility and lower costs for upgrading garments and accessories,” said Randy Fox, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. “Fashion garment designers and manufacturers will benefit from its small, almost imperceptible design allowing them to provide positive identification of their high value items while reducing incidents of loss and return fraud.”
Unlike most washable RFID tags, the new WT-A533L Fashion tag mini is manufactured with transparent materials, which makes it virtually invisible when sewn into clothing or accessories. Measuring only 7mm x 55mm x 0.3 mm, the Fashion tag mini can easily be sewn into the sheerest garments, lace, silks, formalwear, even tee shirts and accessories. The new Fashion tag mini is designed for permanent installation into high-value fashion apparel and is home wash, dry-clean, and ironing safe. Fujitsu expects production availability for the new Fashion tag mini in the summer of 2017.
