Schober Unveils Latest RFID Tag Inserter
Schober USA, Cincinnati, introduced its third generation RFID tag inserter. The new technology inserts UHF and HF inlays under die-cut blank or pre-printed labels and validates the finished product. Control and monitoring is accomplished through the new pendant station which houses an industrial PC.
A cost-effective RFID solution, the product includes a new tag dispenser with web tension relief; strategically placed start/stop buttons; greater information-gathering capabilities; and optional static discharge protection.
This proven technology works with transponders in accordance with ISO specifications, in widths from 10 mm to 160 mm. Pre-printed labels with widths from 20 mm to 200 mm can be applied at rates from 5,000 to 20,000 labels per hour. An on-board RFID reader ensures the readability of each RFID tag after integration, and an automatic control system keeps transponders and printed labels in register.
Standard features built into Schober RFID inserters make them easy to operate and maintain. These include an automatic web guide system for base material; mechanical cross-register for transponders; auto-advance for missing transponders; servo-driven labeling head for opaque and transparent label reels; an electronic re-winder with tension control for assembled labels; and an easy-to-use operator pendant.
