Diagraph, An ITW Company: System for RFID labels

TampTenna™ is a new system from Diagraph that writes to an RFID-tag-enabled pressure-sensitive label while the label is on the tamp pad. The same antenna that writes to the tag also verifies its readability.

But verification takes place after the thermal-transfer-printed label has been applied. This is an important difference compared to systems that verify a tag’s readability before label application. With those systems says Diagraph if the chip in the pressure-sensitive label is damaged during passage through the peel plate or during tamp application there is no verification station to detect the damage. Rated speed is 40 to 55 labels/min.
