A new system that encodes, verifies and applies radio frequency
identification tags at speeds up to 50 cases per minutes, the
manufacturer claims.

NJM/CLI claims its RFID Integrated Model 400 System achieves this because labels are oriented head-to-toe, which is shorter than the traditional side-to-side. RFID technology is helping to transform logistics by providing a means of tracking and tracing individual products throughout the supply chain. Integrated RFID systems can help automate processes as well as reduce the risk of counterfeiting. Mandates from end users, including some of world's largest retails, such as Wal-Mart and Metro, are forcing suppliers to integrate RFID into their supply chains, which is in turn, putting pressure on food processors to invest in the technology. The system can be configured so labels are fed to the tamp pad in a head-to-toe orientation, which then applies the label to the case or carton in the correct orientation with the length of the label across the case. Furthermore, this configuration also improves ergonomics because the label roll is on the vertical plane and lower to the ground, the company claims. The Integrated Model 400 System combines a Zebra RFID printer and verification scanner with a 400 Print & Apply Labeler. The labeler can be modified to automatically remove bad tags or labels prior to label application on products, saving time and avoid processing problems further down the supply chain, claims the manufacturer. The 400 Print & Apply Labeler is a rugged machine, designed to run in 24/7 production environments. NJM/CLI can configure the RFID system for Ethernet connection, as well as other communication modes, to achieve equipment interaction along the process. Frost & Sullivan, a global growth consulting company, provides businesses with analyses of markets, technologies, econometrics, and demographics. The market for RFID along the food supply chain will be worth €4.3bn ($5.8bn) in 2017, according to a forecast published by analysts, IDTechEx, earlier this month. NJM/CLI designs, manufactures and supplies packaging equipment, including a range of RFID labelers. The company maintains corporate headquarters in the USA and Canada.
