Schober USA Unveils New RFID Technology
Schober USA, Cincinnati, introduced its second generation RFID machine.
The machine is able to read HF and UHF tags, and it has a new tag dispenser with web tensioning, strategically placed start/stop buttons and greater information-gathering capabilities. An optional static discharge protection package completes the new features.
As a cost-effective RFID solution, RFID transponders are placed under pre-printed labels. On-board RFID readers ensure the readability of each RFID tag before and after integration. The new technology works with transponders in accordance with ISO specifications in widths ranging from 10 mm to 160 mm. In addition, pre-printed labels with widths of 20 mm to 200 mm can be applied at rates from 5,000 to 20,000 labels per hour.
Standard features built into Schober RFID applicators allow for simple operation and maintenance, including 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 and electronic rewinder with tension control for assembled labels.
