Rosas Maschinenbau, a German manufacturer of customised rewinder and inspection machines has introduced a new RFID label converting and serialisation line. The modular solution features Rosas’ Gazelle bi-directional rewinder with serialisation printing, Bumble Bee RFID inserter, Rosas’ Leopard 300 rewinder with UHF RFID and NFC serialisation, Lake Image System’s Discovery RFID solution and Infinity print inspection system.
The solution can encode UHF and HF tags based on information from the database or synchronise with printed serialisation codes read by the camera before (barcode, QR code, data matrix or OCR). This ensures the visual and code inside the RFID tag matches.
First step of the solution is imprinting codes and inserting RFID tags on the Gazelle rewinder with a 90-degree inserting option. Step two takes place on the Leopard 300 rewinder with Lake Image’s Discovery RFID serialisation suite to encode UHF and NFC/HF tags from a file or the Infinity inspection camera, decoding UHF and NFC to file (logging), sequence check to master file and check for double encoding to a master file.
The camera with UHF encoding can reach high speeds up to 40 m/min (depending to data) or 25 000 tags per hour and up to 20 m/min or 12 500 tags per hour with NFC encoding. UHF decoding up to 50 m/min or 35 000 tags per hour and NFC decoding up to 40 m/min or 25 000 tags per hour. A database matches the camera verifier and RFID read.
‘With this new solution, we offer a powerful full suite for RFID label serialisation and testing,’ said David Rosas Wolf, Managing Partner of Rosas Maschinenbau. ‘Rosas has been specialists in customised RFID decoding and encoding solutions for many years including high-frequency, ultra-high frequency and near-field communication with read/write and database synchronisation in combination with optical vision systems. We welcome the opportunity to work with printers for customised solutions in RFID label converting and serialisation.
Rosas’ new RFID label converting and serialisation solution was demonstrated on their stand at Labelexpo Europe 2023.
