Bielomatik this week unveiled a new process for composition of an RFID label or tag by use of a chip module with a new form of application. The RF-LoopTag module from NXP Semiconductors enables converters to manufacture UHF inlays or smart labels without the need for exact chip positioning as with strap-attached chips.
The RF-LoopTag has the silicon chip placed onto a minuscule broadband UHF antenna which can be applied within millimeters of the main antenna, instead of within microns as required by the strap versions. The larger antenna is made of simple aluminum foil.
Bielomatik reported the sale of several machines for composition of this new type of RFID at Labelexpo Europe.
