Jet Label & Packaging has installed a single-pass RFID inserting system involving an existing Mark Andy flexographic press and an RFID application unit from Tamarack.

Engineers from Mark Andy retrofitted an existing press at Jet Label’s manufacturing facility to allow room for the Tamarack components. The resulting single-pass RFID insertion sees label stock briefly opened for RFID inlay, then relaminated via finishing operations. The new system then verifies RFID function with a reader system after die-cutting.

Jet Label says it selected the Tamarack system for its unique profiling motion that smooths inlay feeding, allowing for insertion at increased speeds.

“The new RFID inserting system will immediately impact our customers, chiefly through faster turnaround times,” said Darrell Friesen, President and CEO of Jet Label & Packaging Ltd. “By combining various features and capabilities, the RFID equipment will streamline this labeling and printing niche in a precise and expedient fashion.”
