Avery Dennison has expanded its portfolio of ultrahigh frequency (UHF) radio frequency identification (RFID) inlay label products targeting the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors.
RFID has proven benefits in industries like apparel, food and beauty and expanded to other segments like pharmaceuticals. RFID-enabled products can be used to streamline asset tracking, eliminate loss on inventory, improve accuracy in supply management, enhance patient experiences, and drive better outcomes, all while fighting pharmaceutical brand counterfeiting.
The first new product, AD-810r6, exhibits excellent performance on glass and plastic materials and has an 18mm diameter footprint. This makes it ideal for tagging glass vials and other small to medium-sized medical packages, including select beauty applications, such as cosmetics or perfume. This globally tuned inlay can achieve up to a 1,7 meter read distance when applied to liquid-filled glass or plastic bottles.
The AD-810r6 inlay is equipped with the Impinj Monza R6 integrated circuit and a tag chip that provides 96-bit EPC memory and features AutoTune RF tuning. The 16mm, round antenna is cleanly cut onto an opaque white PET carrier.
