FlagTag RFID from UPM Raflatac for 100% read rate

UPM Raflatac is supplying UHF EPC Gen2 DogBone tags and the patented FlagTag innovation to Sure-Reach Records Management Sdn Bhd (Sure-Reach). The Malaysia-based company uses RFID tags to efficiently and reliably store, manage and retrieve cartons and documents for its customers.

Sure-Reach adds UPM Raflatac's FlagTag innovation, a self-adhesive label with an embedded DogBone UHF tag, to all individual documents in their storage. “The FlagTag is a UHF RFID label which has the antenna protruding perpendicularly from its surface.

This way, the readability of the FlagTag is not impaired by the material or the packaging of the labelled item. This is paramount for a 100% read rate in an environment where accuracy is a competitive edge to the service provider,” says Edward Lu, Sales & Marketing Director, RFID, UPM Raflatac.

Sure-Reach also attaches UPM Raflatac's DogBone tags to cartons which are used to hold larger quantities of documents and can then be stored three cartons deep on a shelf. A large number of RFID tags can be read simultaneously, even without a direct line of sight with the reader.

Thanks to the new RFID system, it is now possible to perform stock-takes without pulling every carton off the shelf to read the barcode. Instead, it is enough to just wheel a stock-take cart in front of the shelves to read all the carton tags. Similarly, for receiving and shipping in the warehouse, pallets containing boxes from several customers can be passed through an RFID scanner at the doorway. The scanner identifies each box individually, including those in the middle of the stack.

Sure-Reach's storage facility in Shah-Alam has the capacity to store some 500,000 cartons and 1.1 million file folders. Automating the storage audit and retrieval processes results in faster and more efficient processes and minimizes the chance of human error. For a company providing records management services this is essential. The complete RFID solution has been developed by Hewlett-Packard.
