For a company like Stanley Black & Decker, with the experience of delivering high quality products for decades, the importance of testing each tagged tool is obvious. “We use the Tagsurance UHF tester to verify the RF performance of each and every Facom RFID tool delivered to a customer. It enables guaranteeing stable read range for the tagged tool, allowing reliable application functionality. With the same equipment we are able to check and verify our tag vendors’ quality.” says Florian Lambert, RFID Engineer at Stanley Black & Decker. “As Voyantic equipment is widely used globally, it is very easy for us to compare results and share files with our vendors. Voyantic brought us a great amount of knowledge in a short time, when we were initializing our project. Their support has shown quick response times in any requests we have made and have shown to adapt to our specifications of traceability and manufacturing process.”
