SMARTRAC has many years of experience in wire-embedding technology and holds the key patents for this reliable and superior antenna technology. Our proprietary and patented wire-embedding technology is primarily used for RFID inlays for high-class applications that have to fulfil the highest standards regarding security, durability and mechanical robustness.
Etching technology offers the advantage of manufacturing several elaborate antenna structures during the same process. Etched antennas are used to produce RFID inlays for applications where a special antenna design is required, such as eTickets and also applications such as mass transport, airline luggage, labelling and more.
Coil winding is the technology of choice for the production of small glass transponders for applications such as animal identification and car immobilizers. Packaged into a rugged encapsulation, such transponders are also suited for use in harsh environments such as laundry, logistics and factory automation.
The printing of conductive silver ink enables the in-house deployment and production of perfectly new antenna shapes. The key benefits are a fast and economical realization of new designs for HF and UHF frequency range. The antennas can be printed not only on varied substrates like PET or Teslin®, but also on temperature sensitive materials like PC, PET-G or PVC. The main applications are identification documents, access control and more.
