PSID™ – RFID for plastics

PSID™ – RFID for plastics

PSI Brand has incorporated RFID technology into their INMOULD Original graphic system, replacing traditional labelling and spin-welding methods thus providing a cost-effective and permanent tracking method for plastics, PSID™.

In recent years, radio frequency identification (RFID), a means of identifying objects via a wireless communications protocol using radio waves has become more commonplace. You may already be making wireless payments using your credit or debit card purchases, using a keyless entry card in your workplace, paying highway tolls via a communications device mounted in your car, also at times, you may have experienced the uninvited theft-prevention alarm triggered when retail stores forget to remove or disarm the hidden RFID tag.

Benefits of PSID to the plastic industry.
PSID™ has the capability to both greatly enhance and protect the lives of consumers of plastic products and revolutionize the way companies do business. These benefits include:
– Ability to identify the source of products, enabling intelligent recall of defective or dangerous items, such as tainted foods, defective toys, or compromised medication
– Easy monitoring of items with expiration dates
– Greater visibility into the supply chain, which means a more efficient distribution channel and a reduced cost of doing business
– Less business revenue lost to theft or inaccurate accounting of goods
– Increased civilian security through better cargo monitoring at ports

Why is PSID™ better than a barcode?
PSID has numerous advantages over the barcode or serial numbers, these include:
– Line-of-sight reading not required
– Greater depth of serialization
– Many tags may be read simultaneously
– Features 512 bits of user memory with the ability to update and protect information such as date of manufacture, service history etc
– Unique serial numbers make product authentication possible
– Permanently moulded into plastic parts with your chosen design
