Variable data labeling is a critical component of merchandise tracking and control. The Unique Group's automated systems allow us to embed critical information such as individual item's price, bar code, or size into your custom packaging or labels without slowing down the printing process.
This level of customization enables retailers and manufacturers to track inventory and capture information without manual intervention and eliminates the potential for human error — saving time and money. Our factories give us the flexibility to meet retailers' and manufacturers' demands for a timely response across the globe. We produce different kinds of variable data labeling, such as barcodes, adhesive stickers, and RFID technology.
We offer different options regarding labels:
- QR codes
- Price tickets
SMART PACKAGING-RFID TAGS
The Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags use a wireless radio wave to identify products through a chip embedded in the object.
Benefits of RFID
- Product Security: You can track your products in every point during their transport, including where they are headed and where they have been.
- Traceability: Smart tags provide more information to a consumer than a normal label. Shoppers can access the information whenever they want, even at the moment of the sale. Extra information such as where the package is from or even external links to special offers is all possible through RFID labels.
- Safety Information: Sensors allow for users to determine the temperature of the package, the quality and maintenance of the product. This is essential for food and pharmaceuticals products.
- Readability: The RFID technology allows you to read multiple items at once in a split second. Most RFID readers are able to scan up to 40 products in a second.
How do the RFID technology work?
In a basic RFID system, tags are attached to all items that are to be tracked. These tags are made from a tiny chip (integrated circuit), that is connected to an antenna that can be built into many different kinds of tags including apparel hang tags, labels, and security badges. The tag chip contains a memory which stores a code and other variable information so that it can be read and tracked by RFID readers anywhere.
An RFID reader is a network connected device with an antenna that sends power, data and commands to the tags. The RFID reader acts like an access point for RFID tagged items so that the tags’ data can be made available to business applications.
