When Brady SmartID had to develop specialized mount-on-metal RFID tags for an aerospace application, they knew just who to call.
In the power generation rental industry, few tasks are more arduous – or critical – than asset management.
By pairing optimally-sized, mount-on-metal RFID tags with fixed entry point and mobile RFID readers, armories can now manage check-in/check-out processes and trace a weapon through the supply chain, both individually and in bulk.
A well-designed RFID inventory tracking system can provide rental asset companies with a more accurate and efficient inventory workflow – and give clients the assurance that with the right equipment in place, the show will go on.
When a large government contractor was looking for a cost-effective solution to track IT and other electronic equipment all around the world for a government agency, Vizinex RFID and The Danby Group collaborated to provide the solution.
When the choice was expensive but robust active RFID or inexpensive passive RFID that couldn’t provide sufficient location information, this manufacturer of data center equipment decided to forge a third path and create a solution that delivers real time location data at a fraction of the cost of active tags using an innovative combination of passive tags.
When an agency of the federal government wanted a better system for tracking and warehousing large numbers of sensitive biological samples, they needed an RFID solution that was incredibly secure, accurate and complied with challenging dimensional and proximal specifications. Vizinex delivered.
Small annual production runs, a short time line and a challenging use case stopped this medical device manufacturer in its tracks—until they discovered Vizinex’s Custom RFID.
Driven by increasing demand for data bandwidth and “cloud” software solutions, the size and number of data centers is on the rise across the globe.
A subtle problem was causing substantial material waste, scrap and factory downtime for a major tire manufacturer. Though the issue caused significant frustration and financial loss, no solution presented itself … until RFID came to the rescue. At the manufacturing plant, tire floors are formed by extruding hot rubber through an eight- or nine-piece mold, […]
Strict product lifecycle and sterilization requirements were creating end user issues and high warranty costs for a major manufacturer of medical device systems. Fortunately, Vizinex RFID was there to help. The manufacturer in question produces systems that include high-precision end effectors, like endoscopes, that touch or are inserted into patients’ bodies. These end effectors must […]
A medical device manufacturer needed to keep up-to-date inventory of autoclave-sterilized joint replacement components – without costly, time-consuming manual barcode scanning processes. Vizinex RFID was there to help. The Challenge A major medical device manufacturer provides – though a network of distributors – joint replacement kits used by thousands of hospitals nationwide. Each kit contains […]
After several failed attempts with other RFID tag suppliers, a leading oil & gas equipment/solutions provider approached Vizinex to develop a passive UHF tag that could be press-fit into metal drilling tools and equipment. The Challenge Design a tag to survive 1,000 hours underground where the pressure can reach 30,000 PSI, temperatures climb to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and […]
A significant yard management problem was costing an industrial product manufacturer time, money and energy. The Challenge The manufacturer stores raw material in an outdoor laydown yard until it is ready for use. However, the manual system the company uses to track material lots contains major flaws. Operators manually record the location of materials they […]
A venture capital backed startup firm developed an automated system for testing the viability of ovum in fertility clinics. The Challenge The ovum is placed on a specially designed sample tray, which is then inserted into the analytical device. The firm came to Vizinex to develop a highly reliable RFID label, that could be placed […]
In the entertainment industry, TV and film sets are filled with lighting and sound equipment – most of which is rented from major film companies. The Challenge These companies may have equipment on a particular set for weeks, months or years and keeping track of it all seems a perfect fit for RFID. One difficulty […]
The Sentry Worldwide is a patent pending, mount-on-metal asset tag that is functional across the worldwide UHF frequency band of 860-960 MHz. Developed in cooperation with Sun Microsystems, Inc. Vizinex is the first to deliver a true, global mount-on-metal tag with a footprint small enough for use on IT Assets. It exceeds the FSTC performance guidelines in […]
The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative strives to improve border security between Mexico, the Caribbean, Canada and the United States. The Challenge An element of this initiative includes the creation of a Passport/Border card to replace less secure credentials, such as driver’s licenses, which had previously been accepted at border crossing points for travel within North America. […]
RFID is relatively simple, but it isn’t always easy. Take the healthcare industry, for example. The Challenge The RFID applications are plentiful, but the requirements are becoming increasingly demanding. So when customers came knocking, for an autoclave tag that could handle the heat and chemistry of multiple sterilization cycles, Vizinex answered. The Vizinex Solution Vizinex […]
**Vizinex no longer makes any wristband products. Please contact us with questions. During a natural disaster or other emergency evacuation, tracking individuals is vital for public safety officials. Manual systems involving key-punched or bar code based data entry are subject to many sources of error during the chaos associated with evacuations. The Challenge Radiant […]
A major manufacturer of table games wished to increase the ‘intelligence’ of their games, so that they could add interactive features. The Challenge To do this they needed an inexpensive way to know where the players’ pieces were on the game board. Software could then interact with the players based on the status of the […]
The world has accepted a standard for UHF RFID devices, and they must function in the frequency range of 860 to 960Mhz. The Challenge Unfortunately, regions of the world have selected different frequencies within this band for their regional standards. In North America, the band is 902-926 Mhz, in the EU it is 860 to […]
A major supplier of car wash systems wished to offer fleet customers; police departments, municipalities, service companies and rental car companies, a way to track their car wash expense.
