The advantages of RFID for jewellery

The jewellery industry worldwide deals with very expensive and often very small products, from tiny diamonds to wristwatches, to rings, earrings, pendants, cufflinks, etc. In addition, the materials are varied and expensive, such as gold or platinum and valuable gems. The cost of design and brand is also added to their value. Therefore, in this field of business, security systems and insurance companies are involved, which require a very detailed justification of inventories and security with detailed reports.

Related to everything above, for business management, transportation, stowage control and traceability of items, RFID solutions are a key element for the optimal functioning of all the processes involved.

In the case of jewellery, counting these pieces manually with barcodes is an intensive and time-consuming job. Consequently, the use of RFID UHF tags has meant an improvement and saving. RFID technology provides a huge benefit to the jewellery industry that was previously lost during work hours, losses and thefts.

RFID implementations for jewellery provide an end-to-end solution from the first inventory to the final sale of the item. The item is marked with an RFID tag, with which the inventory is fed of information thanks to the readers who are located in different strategic points of the store. Any item in the inventory that is not read within the room or leaving it activates the alarms.

The RFID system makes the hard task of objects traceability who require a lot of security easier, with this system accounting and control are carried out more quickly and precisely. RFID technology for jewellery increases efficiency and improves working conditions.

The advantages of RFID technology for the jewellery industry

  • Faster and more accurate inventory management
  •  Constant update of information on real-time of each item in the inventory
  • Greater security for valuable items
  • Diligent individual monitoring of each item
  • Increase in staff efficiency
  • Facilitates billing
  • Better traceability of multiple articles
  • Fast invoicing at the counters and less waiting lines
  • Detailed reports by article

Trace ID can deliver both standard and customized RFID products of inlays, labels, cards and tags. We are focusing our sales on system integrators, converters or resellers.

Customization capabilities include a tailored antenna and mechanical design, artwork printing and data programming. All our expertise, along with the persistence on quality and service, make Trace ID one of the most trustable partners in RFID industry.

2007 – Trace ID establishment

Established as the first Spanish inlay and label tags manufacturers under the name of Tracetech-ID, Trace ID was the third company in Europe with inlay production capabilities in 2007.

2008 – Solution for the ham industry

First to market to develop a UHF passive based solution for the ham industry. After almost 10 years, some brands of this industry keep trusting Trace ID for its RFID tag and inlays needs.

2010 – New Location, Barcelona

The factory moved from Bilbao to new facilities at Hospitalet del Llobregat, a town closed to Barcelona. The new headquarter and factory are placed in a well connected industrial area, equidistant and close to the shipping port, airport, major road networks and next logistics area of Barcelona.

2012 – Low-Cost Tag

First in Spain to develop a machine to automate the manufacturing process of a low-cost tag in high volumes for on metal applications.

2013 – Railway Applications

The first winner of the tender to supply RFID transport tickets for the main railway Spanish company.

2014 – BAP Tag

The launch a Battery Assisted Tag in label format flexible, low cost and disposable. Battery Assisted Passive (BAP) tag is a passive RFID tag with an internal battery. They function in a similar way to an active transponder tag because they wait for a signal from an RFID reader before answer. The battery turns on when it receives the signal from the reader and, due to its battery, this tag sends the signal farther than a traditional passive RFID tag. BAP tags can have sensors integrated and be placed on food to control the temperature during transport or storage stayed how we will see next.

2015 – Temperature BAP Tag

First to market to launch a Battery Assisted Tag in label format with temperature monitoring capabilities. One version with temperature limit alarms and another version with a data logger to download the graphic of the read temperatures.

The Iceberg BAP Tag, Battery Assisted RFID Label -in the picture above, is an RFID label with a flexible battery capable of monitoring temperature in real time. When maximum and minimum temperature ranges are configured, an alarm flag will be set in of the user’s memory if the temperature ranges are crossed. It is easy to target if a product has not followed the temperature conditions we are expecting.

Its common applications are:
  • Standard Supply Chain Management
  • Cold Chain Temperature Monitoring
  • Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI)
  • Product configuration and control

2016 – New creations

During 2016 and part of 2017 we have been developing a new application and antenna which we are looking forward to introducing you soon. Very soon we will tell you what this is about in our Trace ID blog.
