For loose item, cylinder, or pipe with rounded surface, it gives difficulties to mount a hard tag or put a smart label as what we usually do for a flat surface tagging scenario. Meanwhile, a cylinder might contain metal which gives further challenge. To deal with these, we create cable tie tag in UHF or HF technology to fasten loose items while providing an ID number to assist asset management, item tracking and material work flow control. It can be applied on a metallic surface or items in irregular shape. Meanwhile, the one-time-use cable tie provides tamper proof function to enhance its security level.
