SIVA introduces CylTag™, a cost-effective UHF RFID tag for tracking returnable metallic cylinders like beer kegs, gas cylinders, and chemical drums. The universal-sized tag offers quick attachment with a high-performance foam adhesive, addressing the industry's need for an efficient, mass-deployable solution without the expense of welding.
GOA, India, Dec. 10, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- SIVA introduces CylTag™, a progressive solution for inventory tracking & lifecycle management of returnable metallic cylinders (Beer Kegs, Gas Cylinders, Chemical drums).
Each year 1000's of Beer Kegs and metal cylinders get mis-delivered or get lost in transit. When such metal cylinders go missing, it is often the case that they are stolen and sold for scrap. It is estimated that breweries alone lose up to 5% of their metal cylinders each year, costing the industry $millions.
A solution to apply a UHF tag to metal containers and track progress through the supply chain has existed for quite some time, but most traditional solutions require welding a tag onto the metal cylinder, which is quite expensive when you consider the time/manpower cost of welding. Imagine a brewery having to weld thousands of kegs. This makes mass deployment across the industry, cost prohibitive.
Traditional solutions also require the industry to procure different sized tags to adhere to a variety of metallic cylinder sizes, adding further to the complexity.
SIVA's R&D team was motivated by the idea of developing a "one size fits most" UHF tag that is "quick-to-attach". A solution that would eliminate the high costs associated with welding and encourage RFID deployment across the industry.
SIVA spent nearly three years developing the CylTag™ and by incorporating the latest Ucode 9 chip with a best-in-class antenna design, the CylTag™ provides exceptional performance on metal with a read range of up to 7.5m when affixed to a Beer Keg, enabling inventory tracking of Metal RTI's with safe distribution across the supply chain but more importantly their return for cleaning/sterilization, refilling and re-distribution.
- Quick to attach – A high-performance foam adhesive takes the shape of the curvature of the cylinder, ensuring strong & optimal attachment
- Universal size – One size for the majority of cylinder curvatures
- High pressure & high temp chemical washing resistant. Compatible with sterilization.
- Optional metal ring for spot welding – for challenging applications (can be deployed anytime in the future)
- Personalization: Laser engraving and encoding
