Who are Roxan iD?Roxan iD have been providing innovative animal tagging solutions since the late 90's and also have a unique understanding of plastic moulding technology, meaning that their designs answer a legislative requirement in an elegant package. With previous success in the farming market, Roxan wanted to introduce a new tag gun system that would handle the increasing pressure on farmers to reliably identify their flocks.
Roxan approached 4c Design to help them understand user requirements and decipher the legislation. We wanted to make life as easy and efficient as possible with a design that would allow a farmer with a large flock to tag each sheep without too much fuss. With the need in some cases for sheep to be tagged twice (once in each ear), it was clear that a multi-tag system would be required.
We created a design that would allow the user to load 20 tags into a magazine, fire tags through sheep ears and automatically load the next one into the jawset. Another feature of the design was a 'snap back' jaw that prevented damage to the ear after tagging by quickly releasing the new tag.
The TagFaster has now been in production for a year and has been very well received in a market that needed a product of this nature. Roxan iD have also received an innovation silver medal award from the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland for technical innovation.
