Company

Profile

company_IMA_8179LUX-IDent entered the RFID transponder market in 2002 as a part of the privately owned LUX Group which built on a long electrical engineering industry tradition in Lanškroun, Czech Republic. Anticipating the growing importance of contactless applications, the company started developing, producing and marketing transponders based on Radio Frequency Identification Technology.

company_IMA_8179

To date we have supplied the market with more than 100 million transponders for applications ranging from access and security to industrial logistics. Our core competence lies in the production of RFID inlays in 125 kHz and 13.56 MHz frequency bands. Thanks to the in-house machine design and the broad interdisciplinary knowledge of our team, we can combine flexible antenna design and application-specific encapsulation while maintaining a leading price/quality ratio.

Making use of our strategic location in the heart of Europe, most products are exported to EU countries, with a growing clientele in the USA and Canada.

Technologies

Our coil winding technology gives LUX‑IDent’s transponders an outstanding variability to meet different customers’ needs. We produce non‑capsulated transponders that range in diameters from 5 to 120 mm. While we are most often asked to produce round shaped coils for our clients, we also make different shapes and formats upon request. Sophisticated coil winding combined with fine frequency tuning gives LUX‑IDent transponders an excellent read/write performance.

Our latest additions include wire embedding technology, allowing us to produce larger amounts in a shorter time, and etched antenna technology used for HF and UHF label inlays and labels, available in a range of standard designs or designed individually based on customer’s request and chip type.

For special projects we are open to discuss options for using other types of chips and chip modules.

Our antenna portfolio covers various formats and shapes. Our engineers are ready to help you to design your own antenna upon request.

Standing Out

Wide production range

More than 50 different chip types from several semiconductors are offered and supplied by our company for your convenience. A wide range of transponders, RFID chips, antenna designs and packaging are produced in both low and high frequency.

Small series production

We are happy to offer samples and a customized small-scale series of transponders that some other producers may find difficult to manage.

Manufactured in Europe

We take pride in our products which are all manufactured in the Czech Republic. Which allows us strict production process and delivery time control thus ensuring guaranteed consistent quality with outstanding professional communication.

Our central European location greatly aids logistical planning and ensures rapid delivery within Europe. Even American customers can expect first reactions to their quotation requests on the same day.

Clear private ownership

The ownership structure is clear and simple. We are a privately owned Czech company and our clients are looked after by the top management.

Personal customer care

It is essential for us to know our customers in person and we consider it a great bonus that we’ve become friends with many of them. In the past few years we have commenced a tradition of hosting RFID networking events (Room for Informal Debates), held in Prague and other attractive Czech locations, which attracted very positive feedback. Events like these help to take customer/producer relations to an entirely new level.
