Scale RAIN RFID Tagging via Existing Equipment - Three Ways to Improve Productivity and Increase the Volume of Tagged Product
Speakers: Chris Schaefer, RFID Market Development, Zebra Technologies Corp.; Juho Partanen, Business Development Director, Voyantic Ltd.; James Goodland, Director, RAIN RFID Solutions, NXP Semiconductors
This year is likely to bring RAIN-RFID connectivity to more than 20 billion items. This represents impressive volume, but the penetration rate is still below 10 percent—even in the retail market segment. For the RAIN RFID industry, this presents a huge business growth opportunity, as well as a significant manufacturing scalability challenge. Source-tagging of items benefits everyone throughout the supply chain and is largely based on RAIN RFID inlays. While this approach is still dominant and cost-efficient, the industry needs to find new ways to implement embedded tagging and tag encoding efficiently at massive volumes. Consider the analogy of newspaper printing houses, in which the production of morning papers is definitely not based on desktop printers. In this webinar, industry experts will outline alternatives for how the RAIN RFID industry can increase the productivity of smart labels. It's not always necessary to invest in new machines. Indeed, RAIN RFID capability can be retrofitted in existing production machines in labeling, packaging and other industrial manufacturing processes. Learn how various process steps can be merged in a single machine. You'll be relieved to discover that introducing RAIN capability into your production need not turn into a PLC programming championship. All of this will help you to scale up your production and business as the industry heads toward an annual rate of 100 billion RAIN-enabled items and beyond.

How to Optimize Your Workforce with RFID
You know the value of workforce optimization - you’re balancing workforce scheduling, operational costs and other key performance metrics to get the maximum benefit from your employees and other contract personnel. But having greater visibility into your employee's activities and movements can help you make the best decisions possible, and take your organization to the next level. This webinar will share some of the lessons learned, from best practices and ROI to legal and ethical considerations, that have led to some of our most successful location-based personnel tracking implementations to date.
ARCHIVED WEBINARS
Scaling RAIN RFID Tagging with Existing Equipment
The source tagging of products with RAIN RFID at the point of manufacture – traditionally via inlays - benefits everyone in the supply chain. While this approach is still dominant and cost efficient, manufacturers need to find new ways to embed and encode RAIN RFID tags efficiently at massive volumes if they wish to maximize the benefits. It is predicted that in 2019, over 20 billion items will have been identified and connected to the Internet of Things via RAIN RFID chips. However, even in the early adopter market of fashion retail, the penetration rate of RAIN is still less than 10%. A huge business growth opportunity exists as adoption continues, but it presents a significant manufacturing scalability challenge. In this webinar, industry experts discuss existing challenges around tagging processes, as well as ways to increase the productivity of smart label encoding and attachment. RAIN RFID capabilities can often be retrofitted into existing production machines in label, package or various other industrial manufacturing processes. This can eliminate the need for investing in new machines, saving you time and money! As a webinar attendee, you will discover how you can merge various tagging process steps via a single machine, without having to resort to intensive PLC programming. Maximize the value of existing equipment and improve your production processes, enabling you to easily scale up as the industry heads towards 100 Billion annual RAIN-enabled items and beyond!
RFID Technology: New Revenue Opportunities for Industry Suppliers and Their Customers
Many retailers are turning to radio frequency identification technology (RFID) to improve in-store inventory accuracy and enable buy online, pickup in store, ship from store and other unified commerce strategies. As RFID adoption increases store designers will need to incorporate the technology into the store’s infrastructure. Fixture manufacturers, mannequin companies and may also need to incorporate RFID into their products. This creates new revenue opportunities. In this webinar, learn how RFID is being used in retail and what impact it might have on store design and fixture providers.
