Using our specific operating and business strategy, we are able to provide some of the most competitive pricing available within the RFID market. As an approved converter for the top three RFID inlay manufacturers – Alien, Smartrac, Avery Dennison – we are able to provide many customers with lower costs than directly purchasing a converted RFID inlay from the inlay manufacturers.
Starport RFID Solutions is applying its expertise as an exclusive and leading manufacturer of pressure-sensitive labels to provide the finest in radio frequency identification (RFID) smart labels.
Our innovative method of inserting the RFID inlays fits seamlessly within that conversion process. And because we manufacture the RFID smart labels ourselves, we’re able to offer RFID media that will maximize performance and minimize costs.
All Starport RFID labels are produced using fully tested RFID inlays from trusted sources like Avery Dennison, Alien Technology, and Smartrac. Every label is certified and verified to be the highest in quality.

Starport Technologies has implemented a 99.9% accurate, High-Speed, High-Volume RFID Label and Tag verification system. We pride ourselves on being a “smart label” company and a premier provider of UHF RFID tags and labels. While our facilities produce up to 2 million labels daily, our first priority is to provide products which are high quality and are consistently reliable. Accomplishing this goal requires a cutting-edge facility with strict quality assurance standards and experts who are dedicated to providing efficient manufacturing processes.
In order to remain competitive and meet the ever-increasing demands of high-quality and high-speed RFID Label production, we recently teamed with the RFID experts at RK & GT Technologies to develop an in-line, high-speed RFID verification system which is capable of verifying up to 40 UHF RFID labels per second per lane. This system verifies each label, marking every individual tag and label that fails to read or meet the configurable RSSI signal strength values specified. This verification system mounts directly onto our RFID label conversion equipment and verification is performed in line, reducing the steps required to deliver 100% verified rolls.
“Increasing our accuracy and production rate for RFID labels and tags were top priorities, but this system offers other beneficial features, such as the automated reporting capabilities which logs and reports the readability information for each of the millions of RFID products we produce each week” states Sanders Roth, Vice President of Business Development. “Now we can deliver documented proof of our superior quality tags and labels with each roll that we deliver to our customers!” “We are also able to provide our suppliers with valuable information on the quality of the raw RFID inlays they provide us, giving them insight into their own inlay production. Plus, the application is simple and easy to use, which reduced our downtime due to training and production – it took only a few hours to train the entire team before we up and running”. This system is replacing an older system that could not keep up with our manufacturing demand.

APG in Clearwater, Florida is an electrical contractor with five groups specialized in the fields of Electrical Construction, Technology, Building Automation, Life Safety, and MEP Engineering. APG has been using a basic computer database and engraved numbering to track tools and assets for over 30 years. It was decided that a more up-to-date, streamlined system was necessary. In the early stages of planning, a simple bar coding system was researched along with new tool inventory and tracking software. This would simplify things a great deal and allow more efficient tool tracking. While this system was under consideration, the possibility of the use of RFID tags was also researched.
Starport Technologies was contacted and was able to provide a huge help with an education of RFID technologies, tag types, equipment and workflow. The final result involved printable encodable RFID tags to be encoded by a Zebra R110xi4 RFID printer. The legacy numbers in APG’s existing tool management database would be utilized in the new system to make a seamless transition so that tools could be tracked by both systems during the changeover. Each new tool would be tagged with a dual purpose RFID/barcode tag. The newly encoded RFID number would match the barcode number and the existing engraved tool number. This has enabled redundancy so that a tool can be tracked visually, optically scanned, or RFID scanned all by the same number so that there is no cross tracking or confusion. It also ensures that each jobsite supervisor would be able to track tools whether they have an RFID scanner, a barcode scanner, a smart phone or even a basic printed list. RFID has provided a huge benefit by reducing the time needed to take inventories of large quantities of on-site tools. This has aided in a more accurate and up to date accounting for APG’s tools and assets. During the entire process, from the initial research to the final working product, Sanders at Starport Technologies has been an invaluable resource of information that has helped APG to develop a customized system that has performed well beyond what was originally envisioned.
