Selecting the Right Option for RFID Tagging
There are a wide variety of business reasons for tagging pallets, cases, items and assets—from retail compliance to end-to-end management of product manufacturing and delivery. And the options for deploying RFID—from subcontracting to service bureaus, to complete enterprise integration—are equally diverse. This presentation will provide an overview of RFID tagging options available from label converters, explaining how they relate to different business cases for using RFID. A well-known consumer products company will describe the execution options they piloted, and the rationale for the tagging option it currently uses.

Putting RFID Inside the Box

Integrating RFID transponders into packaging has been a challenge, but  Domino Integrated Solutions Group offers an innovative technology   called HIDE-Pack, designed to eliminate the need for a paper label by incorporating an RFID inlay within the packaging medium. A sustainable   approach to RFID-enabled packaging, the HIDE-Pack solution consists of   embedding an RFID inlay within the structure of a package, so that the inlay is not visible from either outside or inside the package. Thus,   the inlay effectively becomes an integral part of the packaging  medium. Learn how packaging companies can use this technology to   RFID-enable their packaging.
