Holland 1916, a manufacturer of rugged identification products, invents a simple way to RFID enable machines. The RFID Washer is ideal for tagging just about anything that is put together with regular bolts, such as machines, assembly stations, and equipment. A naturally unobtrusive RFID tag solution since it simply replaces a standard washer with an RFID washer of similar shape and size.
These RFID washers are suitable for a number of applications including asset tracking of automotive, industrial, construction, and oil and gas equipment. “The RFID Washer provides a seamless way of RFID-enabling existing machines to communicate with users, maintenance workers, or even other machinery to open up a new world of operations,” says Holland 1916 RFID Sales Executive, Zack Barron. Deploying an RFID washer to enable M2M communications makes sense for many applications such as inspection and audits, assembly verification, asset tracking, maintenance operations, security seals, and equipment verification.

Custom human-readable etched graphics for private labeling or critical data is an additional option.
