The Universal Mini Onsite Printable RFID tags are designed for quick, easy printing on the CL4NX. Unlike other printers, Sato’s CL4NX encodes the on-metal RFID tags from the top, greatly reducing the number of voided tags and increasing productivity. Other types of industrial printers encode from the bottom, which results in a high number of encoding errors because on-metal tags include a metal backplane that makes encoding difficult.
The Universal Mini Onsite Printable tags also include a new thermal transfer-receptive topcoat to provide high quality printing in harsh environments. The tag’s engineered construction leads to a smooth, even printing and tag feeding, even in humid and damp environments.
“The Sato CL4NX also offers an exclusive cloning feature that makes printer setup faster and easier. Users simply insert a USB drive loaded with a cloned package file into the printer, install the package file, load the tags and they are ready to print. This not only eliminates configuration errors but also speeds up the entire print process,” added Gary Krause, SATO America senior director of marketing.
“When customers need to print more tags in the future, they don’t have to reconfigure the settings; they are ready to go,” noted Jared Doerfler, business development director at Metalcraft.
The Universal Mini Onsite Printable tags are ideal for work-in-process applications in manufacturing environments, as well as for asset management applications in healthcare, IT, automotive, and other environments where variable information is frequently printed, encoded, and updated on site. The tag’s patented inlay provides read ranges across a variety of materials but is specifically designed to perform well on metal and glass surfaces where other RFID tags fall short.
