FLYplug, a new label-based format for aerospace RFID parts identification, has been launched by MAINtag in partnership with Zebra Technologies. FLYplug is easy to use, cost-efficient and practical for aircraft (A/C) manufacturers, original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and MRO sectors that want to upgrade from older barcode identification labels or name plates to a state-of-the-art, data-robust RFID tagging system. The FLYplug RFID printing solution includes software license, Zebra Technologies RFID printers (RZ400, RZ600 and R110Xi4 series as well as the new ZT410R and ZT430R) and MAINtag’s on-metal ruggedized flexible FLYchip-embedded RFID tags. This new system sets a standard that outperforms existing on-metal identification. Based on MAINtag’s patented on-metal RFID label (firm-plate) technology, FLYplug is a global integrated printing/encoding enterprise package solution based on ATA Spec 2000. It is the logical stand-alone and networkable solution for fast, fully automated and cost-efficient printing/marking and encoding of RFID-integrated labels.
