RFID Printers

RFID printers are used to simultaneously print text on labels, encode and verify the compliance of RFID tags (thanks to the presence of a reader inside the devices).

RFID printers are divided into:

  • industrial – the most efficient devices you need if you prepare many labels and RFID tags (thousands of pieces) every day;
  • desktop (desktop) – suitable for printing and encoding a smaller number of labels and tags (several hundred a day);
  • portable – useful when working in the field and on large areas.

There are two types of printing:

  • thermal (direct thermal printing) – this method uses special paper that darkens after contact with the heated print head. The printer works quietly and the print is created quickly and cheaply. However, this solution is rarely used because it ensures less durability: the print is sensitive to sunlight and high temperature.
  • thermal transfer (thermal transfer printing) – a special coloring ribbon is used. Once heated, it sticks to the label. This solution ensures durability of the print, although it is more expensive. The RFID printer also makes a louder noise during thermal transfer printing.

You can stick printed labels with RFID tags on individual items as well as on collective packaging.
