Thin Film Electronics ASA (Thinfilm) has announced that its Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) tags has qualified for use in new clothing categories, including denims. Thinfilm is thus expecting its demand to increase significantly later this year. The company also said that the process qualification of EAS-related manufacturing is nearing completion.

Preliminary deliveries of EAS tags for clothing category were made as a result of sheet-based manufacturing earlier in 2018. EAS dies with two of five layers roll-processed meet electrical specifications with higher-than-expected engineering yields.

As of the end of March 2018, all roll-to-roll process equipment for the manufacturing of EAS tags was on-site and in the final stage of installation at the company's US headquarters and manufacturing centre in San Jose, California, said Thinfilm in a press release.

The company has embarked on a capital investment programme to establish a roll-based manufacturing line for the production of Near Field Communication (NFC) tags using Thinfilm's proprietary Printed-Dopant Polysilicon (PDPS) technology. The NFC manufacturing process uses the same toolset as EAS, but requires six additional process steps. The additional unit operations to support these steps are to be installed over the next several months. The start of NFC die manufacturing is on-track and scheduled to commence by end of Q3 2018.
