Zebra, MAINtag launch FLYplug for aircraft parts labeling

April 11, 2014

The RFID printing system includes Zebra Technologies RFID printers and MAINtag's on-metal flexible FLYchip-embedded RFID tags.

FLYplug, a new label-based format for aerospace RFID parts identification, has been launched by MAINtag in partnership with Zebra Technologies. FLYplug is designed to be easy to use, cost-efficient and practical for aircraft (A/C) manufacturers, OEMs and MRO sectors that want to upgrade from older bar code identification labels or name plates to a data-robust RFID tagging system.

The FLYplug RFID printing system includes a 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," say Zebra and MAINtag.

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.

FLYplug Features include: an integration service package; enterprise software ATA Spec 2000 distribution package license; commissioning and training; Oracle and SAP certification; readability from most databases, spreadsheets or texts; and Print/Encode jobs can be launched directly form the platform, TCP/IP sockets, emails, files or other trigger event.
