Label/Tape RFID

RFID Primer

Whether it’s the issue of ROI, getting a handle on the still-evolving EPCglobal standards, or trying to understand the mandates from Wal-Mart, Target, and Dept. of Defense, there are a variety of concepts for converters to grasp in the ever-talked-about world of radio frequency identification (RFID).

3 Tips for Better RFID Label Printing

These three tips can help de-mystify RFID and assist in correct RFID implementation.

RFID: Emerging Policy Issues

In a previous article we outlined some of the issues surrounding the use of radio frequency identification (RFID) and electronic product code (EPC) technology for the converting industry. As we indicated, the primary concern surrounding the use of this technology involves privacy and security when personal information becomes associated with RFID tags. Privacy and security were the major focus of a workshop on RFID sponsored by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) last summer.
