Setting another industry standard in balanced on-off metal RFID technology

Omni-ID, the original patent holder and supplier of high-performance, on-metal passive UHF RFID tags, announced recently a revolutionary new family of UltraThin low profile, flexible on-metal RFID tags and inlays, along with wide market adoption of the first two products - the Flex®LP and Flex®AI.

"We've been working since late 2011 with tens of thousands of these tags deployed at a confidential Fortune 100 Electronics Manufacturing client, and couldn't be more pleased with the performance and consistency of the Omni-ID product," states Curt Carrender, noted industry expert and founder of Thinkify, a Morgan Hill, CA based RFID Solutions Company. "It is a breakthrough design that enabled the project to go forward. We found that it performed better than competitors' products we evaluated."

First launched in October 2011, these UltraThin products provide exceptional on and off metal performance, ultra-slim profile and ability to support flexible application on curved surfaces.

"Since the late last year, the first two products, the Flex®LP and Flex®AI, have been sold in volume to leading firms in IT, Oil & Gas, and Tool Tracking. These tags mark the beginning of a full line of very low profile, flexible tags and inlays," said George E. Daddis, Jr., PhD, CEO of Omni-ID.

The UltraThin Family will have several additions in the coming weeks, including high performance on-metal inlays for asset tracking that can be used with virtually any RFID printer. Built to the highest quality standards the market has come to expect from Omni-ID, this is the solution that label applicators have long sought for tagging of racks, stretchers and cylinders.

"Just as we transformed the durable tag market in 2005 with our patented on-metal UHF tag technology, these new introductions will change the RFID landscape again. 2012 will be an exciting year for Omni-ID as we continue to build on our strong growth in revenue and expansion during 2011," added Daddis. "In fact, this announcement is just the first of several significant new product and technology announcements from Omni-ID to come over the next couple of months."
