THE CHALLENGE

The manual system is very labour intensive and require different people to wash,to give for autoclave and tie garments before they were manually pushed down for final storage in stores.With this new system,one can hope to reduce delays in garment processing and delivery.

THE SYSTEM IN PLACE LED TO:
  • Delays in delivery of clean garments.
  • Inaccuracies in delivery.
  • Higher risk of human error.
THE RFID SOLUTION

The solution includes RFID tags(or"chip")and RFID hardware infrastructure: A small RFID tag,containing the garment ID numbers is sewn or patched into the garment,enabling each item to be tracked and automatically sorted through the laundering process. Operating at a frequency of 13.56MHz, the tag is programmed with data(i.e.apparel size, number of washing cycles,client's name and address)which is stored, accessed and managed by client using RFID reading fixed or portable readers. The tag extermaly resistant to water,heat(up to 400 degree)and pressure(over pounds per square inch).
