Diversified Labeling Solutions Adds RFID Label Converting Capabilities
Diversified Labeling Solutions (DLS), Itasca, Illinois, has expanded its RFID label business with the addition of a new Mark Andy flexographic press with an inline Tamarack RFID inserter.
As a leading national label supplier, DLS has seen significant growth in the demand for RFID labels. To continue to meet customer demand, and bring RFID label conversion in-house, DLS has installed a new 13” four-color Mark Andy 2200 flexographic press with three die cutters, a perforation station, and an inline Tamarack P500 RFID module. The new equipment is installed in DLS’ Itasca facility and adds to the company’s already significant production portfolio. With five nationwide locations, DLS maintains a fleet of over 50 presses including flexographic, UV digital, HP Indigo, and hybrid printing equipment.
Utilizing the new press and RFID equipment, DLS can produce RAIN RFID labels on a variety of face stocks to meet the specific demands of their distributors’ applications. As the official OEM supplier for TSC Printronix Auto ID, DLS will also be able to more efficiently produce RFID labels to work with the full line of TSC Printronix Auto ID RFID printers.
“We’ve seen consistent growth for demand of RFID labels in the last several years,” says James Cirigliano, vice president of marketing for DLS. “With major retailers, such as Walmart, mandating their suppliers comply with increased RFID mandates, we anticipate this growth will only continue. Bringing RFID label production in-house allows us to better serve our distributors and offer RFID labels that will maximize performance and minimize costs.”
“We did a lot of research to determine the best solution for DLS to bring RFID label production in-house,” says DLS CEO Bill Johnstone. “Ultimately, we felt the flexibility and scalability that the Mark Andy/Tamarack solution offered was the best fit for DLS and our customers. The new press adds production capacity when needed, and the modular design of the Tamarack gives us room to grow as our RFID label business expands.”
