Foothill Ranch, CA. October 16, 2018 — Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., a leader in innovative technology and front-end solutions has announced today that Fujitsu has developed a new line of washable UHF RFID tags only 7 millimeters wide, 30% smaller than current tags, allowing them to be more easily  inserted into the seams of washable items. Fujitsu will debut the new “super-slim” tags, as well as their WT-A533 Linen tags and WT-A533L Fashion tags, at the EXPOdetergo 18th International Exhibition, Hall 1 booth # V10, on October 19-22, 2018 at the Fiera Milano Convention Center, Milan, Italy.  The Fujitsu “super-slim” washable RFID Linen tags are targeted for availability in the first quarter of 2019.

 “We are listening to our customers who have requested reducing the width of our tags to allow easier insertion into garments and linens,” says Michi Sugawara, President and CEO of Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc.  “The new super-slim Linen tag demonstrates our commitment to design innovation.   It will provide greater customer satisfaction by enabling manufacturers to easily integrate our tags in a broader range of products”.

In addition to the new antenna design, the new super-slim Linen tag has a new, state-of-the-art mechanical design which allows for greater durability in industrial laundry environments.  Customers will have the ability to perform bulk reading of hundreds, even thousands, of articles simultaneously with very high bulk read density. Bulk reading enables high speed, stream-lined automated processes, significant reductions in labor costs, and improved overall return on investment.

Our engineering and design teams possess sophisticated engineering design and antenna optimization intellectual property,” says Kazuhiro Igarashi, President and CEO of Fujitsu Frontech Limited.  “By combining this know-how plus our skills in high volume, fully automated manufacturing systems, Fujitsu is able to break through barriers that other companies cannot achieve”.
