"Best of Category" is awarded to the highest-scoring entry within each of the 11 categories assessed and selected by an anonymous panel of industry experts, journalists and consultants at Print 17 in Chicago, IL, USA. These awards recognize winning technologies that offer the most compelling and innovative solutions within the industry.
"These 12 products represent exemplary advances in the print and graphic communications arena and serve as shining examples of the future of our industry," says Thayer Long, president of NPES.
Discovery READ&PRINT for RFID Tags is a cost-effective, inline, end-to-end RFID read, encode, print and verify integrity management solution for high-volume RFID tag production. The solution is fast and reliable and processes thousands of RFID imbedded items or labels per hour while maintaining 100% integrity at every stage.
Defective RFIDs labels and tags are automatically identified, tracked and marked as "VOID" or diverted at the end of the line. Targeted RFID encoders and readers ensure that the signal from one tag does not interfere with another tag, enabling even faster throughput. Discovery READ&PRINT for RFID Tags is provided with all of the required components – vision system, RFID's readers and encoders, inkjet heads, monitors, cables etc., with full installation and integration service – all at a low, affordable price.
Following this award and the "Best of Category" award given to Discovery Roll Inspector at GraphExpo last year, Scott Stevens, president for Lake Image Systems, said, "We are immensely proud and honored to have won another "Best in Category" award and our fourth consecutive Must See 'Em award overall. These awards clearly recognize our efforts in developing and delivering truly innovative solutions which offer real value and benefit to our customers."
