AWRF recently had its Product and Information Exhibition (PIE) in Fort Worth, TX. There were a record number of attendees and companies participating in the show. There was so much good information at this show that we thought we would share some of it with you. In our first segment we stop in at Etiflex ( and speak with Bruce Hoglander. He tells us about their flexible reinforced tags that allow for RFID and attach to synthetic slings, wire rope slings and chain slings. In-service date tags are also available and allow for a punch system to make tracking inspections easy.

The flexible tags are tear resistant and hold up to abrasion very well. He demonstrates by rubbing it on concrete. Nice job Bruce thanks for being part of our new product and technology video series.
