Brad Weber, Weber Marking Systems president, says, “Wal-Mart was the first to set a deadline for RFID compliance. The US Department of Defense was next (also for 2005), and we feel that many other retailers and supply chain operations in the US and around the world are bound to follow suit. We pledge that our Initiative 2004 will ensure that our customers will be ready.”
RFID is the latest development in automatic identification and data capture technology. Much of the initial growth of RFID is expected to be linked to “smart label” technology, which combines the benefits of bar code labeling with the functionality of RFID by embedding an ultra-thin RFID tag in the label material that will transmit product data.
Existing RF source tagging design center expanded to help customers meet emerging compliance initiatives
