A further step for
electromagnetic ID technology
Van den Bergh Engineering in Belgium specializes in manufacturing off-line paper processing modules, including integrated forms/label systems. Its machinery can handle RFID technology, hot foil stamping and magnetic strips. Currently it is working to incorporate electromagnetic identification (EMID) devices during the production of documents, tags and labels for several security applications, including brand protection and product tracing within logistics systems.
UK-based technology provider Flying Null is supplying the EMID technology to Van den Bergh. As mentioned in the November column, the company is actively developing FN Transfer Tags at its Cambridge headquarters. It claims its “smart” magnetic tags offer a chipless alternative to low-cost RFID products. They can be read covertly without breaking the overlaying foil strip.
Marc Van den Bergh, CEO, says that many companies have expressed interest in the technology, although his company is awaiting some firm orders. “There is a definite market for security printing using EMID. It is just a question now of finding it.”
