LIBERTYVILLE, IL: William Frick & Company has released a RFID-enabled floor tag to mark locations in warehouses and distribution centres, helping in automatic data collection and inventory control. The tag is 4×6 inches and flat enough for floors, walls and other surfaces.

The high-strength, permanent 3M adhesive bonds tightly to most objects, including many low surface energy coatings, paints and concrete, the company said. The adhesive is also oil resistant, Frick said, an advantage on factory and warehouse floors.

The thin layered RFID tag is perfect for floors, walls, and other flat objects, Frick said. Tough enough to drive over with a forklift, these tags are used to mark the floor location in a warehouse or distribution facility to help in automatic data collection and inventory control.
