Kelgray Products Ltd has launched an RFID print and apply labelling system called Easiprint RF. The printer applicator provides the facility to write RFID tags as well as printing traditional thermal labels, both of which can then be applied directly to the outer case or pallet by the applicator whilst travelling along a conveyor line. The Easiprint RF system helps to ensure that a business is RFID ready, even if it is not currently printing RFID tags. This could be a major competitive advantage as the major retailers move forward with demands for RFID compliance.
The Easiprint RF system will also be available with 802.11b wireless network connectivity which provides the user with the ability to design and print labels from anywhere within the wireless network. Additionally, the wireless capabilities provide the flexibility to move the Easiprint RF system to other areas of the production facility, without being restricted by availability of Ethernet points (subject to wireless network coverage).
We developed this product following requests from a major RFID hardware manufacturer and in response to concerns raised by many of our manufacturing customers on the increasing move towards RFID and WiFi. We felt the best solution was to combine the two technologies thereby providing a future-proof labelling system for our customers. states Kelvin Smith, Managing Director.
