Airbus Chooses Brady to Supply Integrated RFID Nameplates for Internally Produced Parts

June 3, 2014

Brady has been chosen by Airbus to provide print-on-demand RFID integrated nameplates to wirelessly identify and track its internally produced flyable parts throughout an aircraft.

According to a release, the integrated solution was the result of a joint development between Brady and Tego to leverage Brady's core competency in high-performance materials designed to withstand extreme environments and Tego's rugged, high-memory chip technology. RFID integrated nameplates represent the next generation of tags that simplify and expand RFID applications in the aerospace industry.

With RFID tags, airplane parts and their histories can be tracked throughout their lifecycle with significant reduction in manual and paper administration. Using a hand-held reader, maintenance and other workers can gather information about component age, repair history and maintenance schedules without needing direct line of sight to individually check hundreds of components in each aircraft.

"This latest contract for flexible RFID integrated nameplates signifies the adoption of rugged, high-memory identification solutions in the aerospace industry," said Timothy Butler, CEO of Tego.

"Brady is poised to engage its global sales and technical support network to assist Airbus professionals anywhere in the world," said Matt Williamson, president of Brady's Identification Solutions business. "We are committed to on-going support of Airbus, as well as our collaboration with Tego, as the expansion of RFID in the Airbus fleet continues to revolutionize component identification and tracking in the avionics industry."
