Two new systems are being demonstrated by Atlantic Zeiser at Labelexpo. The Omega 36/36i digital inkjet printer features drop-on-demand array jet technology to produce variable data printing on a wide variety of substrates. The Tagline is a high speed smart label personalization system said to simplify quality control and encoding of RFID tags in the ticket and label process.
The lightweight and compact size of the Omega 36/36i digital inkjet printer is said to enable easy integration into most existing equipment, for both web and sheet-fed applications. The 360dpi print resolution in combination with Atlantic Zeiser’s proprietary inks “ensures clear and crisp printing of very small characters and produces bar codes with excellent readability and clarity” on paper, cartonboard, aluminum, and plastics. The company is offering a series of UV curable or solvent based inks, formulated for specific applications.
The Tagline encoding system can handle RFID tag encoding and optical OCR/bar code marking simultaneously. The encoding module has eight independent high frequency chip units to perform encoding in a read/write cycle. This process verifies that information sent to a tag is correctly stored and enables fast, accurate production of up to 40,000 labels/hour, the company states.
Labels can be printed with variable data (numbers and/or bar codes), or with additional security features, without any reduction in production in speed.
Developed specifically for encoding, marking and selecting RFID tags (or transponders), guaranteeing 100 per cent verification, this high speed system is said to be ideal for smart tickets and smart labels that conform to the strict quality and accuracy specifications required in the pharmaceutical sector or by the US FDA.
