Brady Corporation can design the optimal RFID labelling solution for asset tracking and inventory management that can fit any surface. Customisation options include select antennas, chips, optional sensors, label materials, adhesives and prints. Brady specialists are ready to assist you in finding the right combination of RFID products to solve your identification need.
An RFID label tailored to your environment
Brady leverages all of its knowledge and capabilities to provide complex industries with unique RFID labelling solutions tailored to specific applications and environments. Customisable RFID label components include RFID antennas, chips, optional sensors, adhesives, industrial grade label material, label shape and colour, label preprints and preprogramming. The high level of customisation enables RFID read range modification, applications that require abrasion, chemical, oil or outdoor resistance, and applications both on- and off-metal surfaces.
Leverage RFID benefits in any industrial environment
Scan and identify or locate multiple items at once from a distance, or 1 by 1 in close proximity. RFID benefits include efficiencies in goods receiving, picking, loading and shipping, in production, in assembly, in maintenance and in inventory tracking, monitoring and auditing. With handheld scanners and strategically placed fixed scanners, almost any item can be tracked and traced automatically.
A complete solution
Brady can provide a complete solution that includes print-and-programme RFID printers and scanners for custom RFID labels. Software can be provided and integrated to manage RFID driven processes, which can include proximity detection, maintenance or installation guidance, shipment control, warehouse forklift automation or simple item counting at specific scanner gates.

Challenge: Increase forklift picking efficiency
Internal logistics control is still often based on pen and paper and print-outs from WMS and ERP. These time-consuming procedures cost a lot of money, have numerous disadvantages and entail inefficient operations, such as the incorrect placing of products and random driving around of forklifts. So how to get rid of these, while staying in control of ongoing operations?
Solution: Custom RFID labels and integrated forklift scanners
RFID can help locate forklifts quickly. Location detection can take place in real time and continuously, or at crucial places such as zone changes, or when items are scanned, picked up and dropped off. The data generated enable pick-up and drop-off location control, efficient route calculation and route registration.
On top of that, forklifts can also be equipped with detection equipment to read RFID packaging labels on your warehouse pallets, boxes or containers. Brady can supply its L-2588-26B UHF packaging RFID label with a modifiable read range up to 10 metres. They can be programmed on-site with an RFID print-and-program printer, which also enables adding a barcode or serial number on the label. Fixed RFID scanners can be set up to detect the entire inventory, and these data can be sent automatically to an asset management software linked to the company’s ERPsystem. This equipment enables automatic scanning and registration of the articles or load carriers carried along such as pallets, boxes and containers. Manual scans, and the resulting frequent forklift stops, are avoided, and drivers can fully focus on driving.
RFID forklift track & trace solutions enable an accurate and up-to-date overview of internal logistic movements through automatic location and load control. Through registration of routes, you are able to organise your rides as efficiently as possible.
Results: Smart forklifts
Smart forklifts support flawless and efficient order picking and considerably reduce the number of inventories. The technologies used are RFID location detection, automatic load control, wireless communication and control of the drivers through a panel PC with touch screen. These technologies can considerably increase the efficiency and effectiveness of any large warehouse with forklifts.
