Vanguard Becomes 2x Winner of ICMA Élan Award, RFID Badge

Vanguard ID Systems recently took home, for the second year in a row, a prestigious ICMA Élan Award in the Access Control category for its design of an RFID badge for their customer, CompuWeigh. The Access Control category recognizes excellence in card design and technical innovation for access control applications. Vanguard received its award at the 2010 ICMA Élan Awards ceremony recently held during the International Card Manufacturers Association’s Card Manufacturing Expo in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The award-winning badge is a Vanguard first – a biodegradable Teslin® card with an Avery Dennison RFID inlay. PPG worked with Vanguard and CompuWeigh to manufacture the first commercial cards using their new Teslin® biodegradable synthetic printing sheet. The badges were a perfect fit for the industrial automation solution provider who focuses on the agricultural and biofuel industries.
