Overprinting RF-EAS labels

Tuesday, 27 July, 2004 | Supplied by: http://www.checkpointmeto.co.nz/


The Checkpoint Meto machine, capable of overprinting RF-EAS labels at high speed with no risk of deactivation, addresses the growing need for suppliers and exporters to use 'at source' tagging with internationally high criteria for quality and reliability.

The assurance of label activation, combined with the high quality overprinting of variable data, ensures vastly increased product security together with efficiencies in shipping logistics.

The ability to variably print individual labels and tags at high speed provides the supply chain with the opportunity to track goods more accurately, minimise handling and better manage inventory levels.

This capability enables a retailer in Australia or Europe to order, for example, a New Zealand product and have it arrive in their shop already carrying the branding, product identification and variable data required.

Suppliers will also benefit because high levels of variable data can be printed on a just-in-time basis. Only the labels required are printed, removing the financial constraints of optimal print run sizes and the cost of tag stock becoming obsolete.

The machine can overprint RF-EAS labels with logos, details of size, colour, price barcoding and other inventory control and retailing information. But because the tags are printed exactly to order the printing cost to the exporter is minimised.

Being able to print on both paper and plastic stocks in a continuous flow format has also opened up a new range of applications for businesses.

In addition to stock tags and labels, companies are now able to print statements, invoices, shipping labels and inventory management forms carrying the same branding and data. Once again information accuracy and product security is increased.
