Labeling Solutions for Oil Change and Automotive Applications

Posted January 25, 2013

Industry Need

The simple step of applying oil change reminder labels carries real value for the automotive service establishment and the customer. These labels provide a subtle but persistent notice to the customer of the next service date, helping ensure the vehicle remains in optimal condition. They also remind a satisfied customer where they last received service, increasing the likelihood of return business.

While an enclosed automobile may seem like a relatively benign environment, these labels are subjected to significant environmental rigors. High exposure to ultraviolet radiation can attack labels and adhesive, causing adhesives to harden and leave residue, or causing the label to break apart and delaminate rather than removing in one piece. Temperatures inside a parked car in the summer can quickly reach 140°F, effectively baking the label facesheet and adhesive. During winter, windshields repeatedly cycle between freezing temperatures and heated defrost cycles.

QuikQ Installs More Than 1,000 UHF RFID Systems At Fueling Stations

Posted January 10, 2013

Impinj Speedway RFID ReaderQuikQ has announced that it has installed more than 1,000 of its SmartQ systems at truck stops and travel centers throughout the United States. The SmartQ cardless fueling system leverages EPC Gen 2 passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID tags (employing Impinj Monza 4 RFID chips) that can be affixed to trucks or trailers so that the vehicles can be identified while pulling into fuel lanes at truck stops. Once a vehicle is identified via an Impinj reader wired to as many as to four antennas mounted above the lanes, the system can automatically identify that truck, after which its driver can begin fueling without having to swipe a card or enter data on the pump’s keypad.

Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores has implemented the system at more than 200 of its fuel stations to date. TravelCenters of America (which operates 165 sites) has also installed the solution, QuickQ adds, and is nearly finished with that deployment. In addition, QuikQ reports, many independent truck stops and travel centers are utilizing its SmartQ system. Acknowledging QuikQ’s growth, Impinj named the company its North American VAR Partner of the Year.
