Xerafy Ltd, a global supplier of RFID metal tags, won the European Auto ID Award 2012 in the RFID category at the Euro ID 2012 trade exhibition in Berlin, Germany. The award was granted by AIM, the global organization for the promotion of Auto ID, and Informa Business Communication. Xerafy earned the award for its development of innovative solutions and products including the Metal Skin, the first RFID inlay for metal, and XS family, the world's smallest passive UHF EPC C1G2 metal tags on the market.
"We are pleased to be distinguished for our innovation," said Dennis Khoo, CEO of Xerafy. "At Xerafy, we strive to provide new disruptive RF tag solutions to challenge market norms."
Dr. Alexander Pflaum, the Head of Department of Supply Chain Technologies at the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrate Circuits in German, presented the award to Xerafy on behalf of AIM and EUROFORUM and praised the company for its innovation in reducing the size and profile of metal RFID tags to that of a label.
Xerafy attended the Euro ID exhibition for the first time, which took place from 24th to 26th April in Berlin, Germany, and presented some of their innovative customer solutions. Xerafy displayed their XS tags attached to surgical instruments to revolutionize healthcare operating theaters. For financial and IT data centers, Xerafy demonstrated how the Metal Skin label can track blade servers, iPads, and laptops. For the manufacturing and aerospace market, Xerafy showed how tool tracking reduces risk of foreign object debris (FOD) in airplanes after maintenance operations. Stanley Black & Decker embedded Xerafy's XS tags at the point of manufacture for their ProtoID tool sockets on display. Xerafy exhibited in booth #C3.
