Kuny AG, with its fully integrated production plant in Küttigen (Switzerland) has developed a soft, fexible and smart RFID Label and combined textiles together with electronics, thanks to its core specialities in weaving, deyeing, printing and coating.

The combination of a small transmitter (radio tag) with a textile satin ribbon and an additionally inserted antenna yarn (beag® ID) enables the range to be increased significantly and thus expands the range of applications wherever soft touch is required.

An additional sealing of the transmitter prevents it from being removed through mechanical friction or manipulation and protects it against industrial washing and thermal drying processes.

The RFID label is smooth, soft and extremely comfortable to wear. Due to an additional surface treatment, it can be printed individually with thermal printing and enables to add further information (care labeling, instructions, etc.).

The range depends on the antenna construction, which is constructed, measured and installed by Kuny.

In comparison, commercially available tags with the same range (5-10m) and function are very static due to the rough inlay and therefore limited suitable for textile applications.

The production of the RFID label is variable in its length and can also be used on other materials.

The U Code 9 Tag component is based on ISO 18000-6C, EPC Class1 Gen2, with an operating frequency at 850 – 950 MHz.
