FAQs RFID Labeling

What are Metal Skin® RFID labels used for?

Metal Skin® are durable RFID labels used for the tracking of assets and inventory, including:

+ Parts and Components in MRO for Aerospace, Rail, Construction, Mining, etc

+ WIP Inventory in Automotive and Manufacturing

+ Automated Warehouse for high-value items

+ Reusable Packaging and Containers such as pallets, totes, crates

+ Data Centers equipment such as servers and racks

+ Electronic Devices, including barcode readers, laptops, and tablets

+ Hospital Equipment

How durable are Metal Skin® labels?

Metal Skin® RFID labels offer durability against conditions observed in challenging environments:

  1. Water: IP57 to IP68 ratings
  2. Dust
  3. Temperature variations: -40° to +85°C
  4. Moderate solvents and caustics/acids

Rugged alternatives are available such as the Pod Trak, a large printable label with a transparent protective cover, or the XSKIN Theta, a high temperature RFID inlay.

Can Metal Skin® labels be used on metal surfaces?

Yes, the Metal Skin® series are on-metal labels designed to perform reliably on metal and other industrial materials like plastics. Standard RFID labeling solutions struggle with metal surfaces due to interferences, but Metal Skin® labels include a spacer to shield the RF antenna.

Unlike most on-metal labels, the Xerafy’s Metal Skin® series works well on both metal and plastics, and they can be read on both sides when unattached. 

Specialized off-metal labeling solutions are also available in Xerafy’s XSKIN series.

How to read Metal Skin® labels?

The labels can be read using any RAIN RFID reader, handheld or fixed. They are all standard passive UHF (Ultra High Frequency) that comply with EPCglobal Gen2v2 and ISO 18000-63 standards, also referred to as RAIN RFID.

Xerafy offers a selection of recommended handheld RFID readers, with some supporting 1D and 2D barcode scanning. All are proven in the field to ensure full compatibility and optimal performance.

What Metal Skin® labels to use with Zebra printers?

All Xerafy Metal Skin® series RFID labels can be printed and/or encoded on the Zebra ZT411R.

 

The labels are also compatible with other leading industrial RFID printers including the SATO CL4NX Plus and TSC T6000e.

Are Metal Skin® labels available through a Service Bureau?

Yes, Metal Skin® labels can be pre-printed and encoded by Xerafy’s service bureau as well as through the company’s network of Authorized Partners.

Which adhesives are used on Xerafy Metal Skin® RFID labels?

The Xerafy Metal Skin® series RFID labels are available with permanent pressure-sensitive  industrial adhesives from 3M and Tesa. Other options are customizable on request.
