Industrial launderers, hotels and other businesses that manage textile linens understand that manually sorting, counting, packing, and separating clean and soiled linens is an error-prone process. RFID tags can help automate this process, but manually inserting RFID chips on every item is time-consuming and costly.
Venus Group collaborated with Fujitsu Frontech North America, a leader in RFID technology, to design a solution that would automate the RFID tag insertion process and, ultimately, streamline inventory management for customers.
After one year of R&D and six total product variations, Venus Group and Fujitsu landed on a continuous roll of custom-designed RFID pouches, which are inserted into the hem. Linens with RFID tags installed can be read in seconds, making managing soiled and clean linens easier.
Given the pandemic, textiles with RFID tags offer another distinct advantage—improving employee safety by eliminating the physical handling of contaminated items. Learn more about our approach, our solution, and our successful results in this case study.
