SATO America, of Charlotte, a manufacturer of bar code printing equipment since 1979, has announced a partnership agreement with CCL Label Inc. The partnership is aimed at developing intelligent labeling products, including RFID.
CCL Label will manufacture all RFID tags and labels for SATO America and will resell SATO RFID-enabled printers, according to a SATO announcement.
Utilizing high frequency chips embedded in the labels, the SATO RFID Kit enables specific CL408e(2) and CL412e(2) printers to print on the label and program the chip inside the label simultaneously. The kit allows the “smart labels” to be read even if the label is not in the line of vision.
