Case study: ID (RFID) Sheep Tag
On the 1 January 2010 new legislation was brought in by DEFRA that all sheep and goats had to have a clear form of tagging. Animals born after 31 December 2009 had to have an electronic identification display in the colour yellow. Animals older than that have to be tagged in a different colour.
The client approached icon Plastics to design, manufacture and supply a product robust enough to cover their requirements and function outdoors 24/7.
Icon designed a 3D model, produced a SLA prototype then a single cavity tool for validation of the design to make sure it was fit for purpose.
When the tag was approved by the regulatory authority, ICON Plastics produced a new 20 impression production tool. Material used was Impact Modified Nylon 6 with Laser Additive.
“All most 12 months on and the product sales have surpassed customer expectations.”
