Metalcraft Announces FastTrack RFID Race Timing Tags


Metalcraft introduced FastTrack RFID race timing tags that eliminate the foam backing common among RFID bib tags. Now, racers can wear a flat, weatherproof race bib against the body that gets read at the finish line. Samples are available via today.

FastTrack RFID race timing tags feature a unique inlay that performs as well or better than comparable tags that have a backing spacer, and the self-tuning NXP UCODE 8 chip ensures accurate reads regardless of location.

“Metalcraft’s RFID timing tags offer peace of mind to race directors and event participants because, without a foam spacer, these tags stay in place and won’t catch on clothing,” said Kyle Bermel, Chief Operating Officer.

Metalcraft’s tag works with all RFID race timing systems, offering a non-proprietary option for race directors. Custom printing and custom numbering are available at no additional cost.

Since 1950, Metalcraft has provided property identification solutions from a headquarters in Mason City, Iowa. Metalcraft designs, engineers and manufactures custom RFID and barcode tags and labels for almost any tagging need, especially asset tracking, access control and OEM applications. Metalcraft also provides a wide range of services including RFID prototyping and pilot projects. Visit for details.
