Schober USA Introduces the RFID-CP
Cincinnati-based Schober USA unveiled its RFID-CP—an ideal solution for medium and small label runs using preprinted, heavy-label stock. The new technology inserts UHF and HF inlays under die-cut blank or preprinted labels and validates the finished product.
Control and monitoring is accomplished through the new pendant station which houses an industrial PC. Additional features of the cost-effective RFID solution include a new tag dispenser with web tension relief, strategically placed start/stop buttons, greater information gathering capabilities and optional static discharge protection. The proven technology works with transponders in accordance with ISO specifications, in widths from 20 mm to 80 mm and lengths from 20 mm to 180 mm. Preprinted labels with widths from 101.6 mm to 203.6 mm can be applied at rates from 5,000 to 20,000 labels per hour. An onboard RFID reader ensures the readability of each RFID tag after integration. An automatic control system keeps transponders and printed labels in register. The RFID-CP provides efficient and economical production of contact-less, readable tickets for items such as public transportation cards, admission tickets, garments and swing tags.
