Worldlabel.com shipped a roll with 105 pieces of 4Â x 6Â XtrackÂ RFID Smart Labels to the RFID Alliance Lab for testing. The tags embedded were a Rafsec dipole design with EPC UHF Ucode 1.19 chip. Tests were performed at the University of Kansas under the supervision of Dr. Daniel Deavours, Director of Research at the RFID Alliance Lab and Assistant Professor at the University of Kansas. Dr. Deavours issued the following statement on behalf of the RFID Alliance Lab. ÂOn December 14, the Lab tested all 105 labels with a ThingMagic Mercury 4 reader. The Lab observed that all 105 labels were readableÂ.
"The results should be interpreted narrowly," stated Dr. Deavours. ÂWhile we did not detect any "dead" tags, our procedure would not have detected any "quiet" tags, or any degregation in read performance.Â
Worldlabel.com has a PCT patent pending application for a method of embedding RFID Tags to paper labels. An opinion by the International Search Authority has approved the method as novel and innovative.
ÂWe are positive we can embed any inlay into a paper label and produce a roll of XtrackÂ RFID Smart Labels 100% readable with our method of convertingÂ said Russell Ossendryver, USA director of Worldlabel.com and Innotech Resources PTE LTD in Singapore. Innotech Resources PTE LTD is a major label converter and has invented a method of embedding RFID tags to paper labels. The method is efficient for long runs of one size label and also ÂbatchÂ conversion of different size labels with the inlay embedded anywhere in the label the customers might require with a quick turn around. Typically, about 20% of the RFID labels in rolls have defective chips and are not readable. Our system and methods of manufacturing increases the reliability and consistency of RFID labels to 100% readable. Labels can be printed with bar codes with UHF Class 1, Ucode 1.19 and Class 0 RFID tags embedded with most popular thermal label printers.
While we have capacity to produce millions of XtrackÂ RFID Smart Labels right now, we are increasing our manufacturing capacity in China, Malaysia and are working on licensing the technology to several converters in the USA and Europe. Plans to open our own facility in the State of Ohio are in the works.
