HID Global LinTag™ transponders apply securely and discreetly to textiles, enabling RFID tracking of high-volume, commercially laundered bed linens, towels and garments.
In contrast to garments like uniforms, linen like bed sheets or towels are washed more frequently and have to endure a tougher cleaning and drying process. Historically, this made using RFID to optimize inventory and accounting processes difficult or impossible to implement for linen. HID Global’s LinTag robust design combats the industrial wash cycles for linens, withstanding the rigors of repeated washings, cleaning chemicals, sterilizing heat, and pressure. The patented design securely positions the inner chip relative to the antenna, which guarantees consistent performance over the life of the tag.

Industrial laundries and commercial cleaners are using RFID technology to improve inventory control, reduce labor requirements, and optimize the lifecycle management of individual textiles and garments. Real-time traceability delivers more accurate and timely billing, and enhances customer satisfaction. Healthcare organizations are also tagging linens and gowns to monitor usage and inventories, automate distribution, and reduce shrinkage and staffing needs, relying on LinTag transponders to survive repeated cleaning and sterilization
