I am using an Invengo XCRF807 RFID reader to write and read extremely small RFID tags (Murata LXMS21NCMH-230). Writing such tags is difficult as they need to be within mm of my antennae. The Invengo reader casing has a grounding bolt on it.

Would grounding the casing of the reader decrease potential interferences from the environment and contribute to writing data more reliably onto the tags?

Using a proper ground will reduce noise, but more-so it will improve the performance of the antenna.

The reader has a grounding bolt because the designer decreed it was necessary. So it stands to reason that the reader should work better if you wire it correctly.
