Enercon: Plasma3™ enables RFID label converting

Enercon is pleased to offer converters assistance in the production of radio frequency identification (RFID) tags. RFID is a technology used to track assets throughout the supply chain. Very small RFID transponders or tags containing a unique identifier are placed on assets (pallets, cases, or individual items), and these tags communicate with RFID readers.
Large retailers such as Wal-Mart, Target, and Home Depot have been involved in pilot tests of RFID solutions based on the latest technology and are making plans to require their top 129 suppliers to start equipping arriving pallets and cases with RFID devices in the not-too-distant future, perhaps as early as January 2005, in Wal-Mart’s case.
Enercon’s Plasma3 Atmospheric Plasma Treatment System can be integrated within the production processes of manufacturers of passive and long-range battery-tag RFID systems operating in the UHF and microwave frequency bands.
Plasma3™ ’s cleaning, etching and functionalizing surface treatment process enables manufacturers to optimize tag transmission levels while significantly improving productivity and tag yield.
Enercon Industries Corporation, headquartered in Menomonee Falls, WI, is a major manufacturer of equipment for the plastics and packaging industries. The company supplies custom built corona, flame and atmospheric plasma treating systems, and 3D plasma treaters for the plastics and rubber industries.
