Posted November 12, 2013

Trasluz Casual Wear launched its business operations in 1999 with the objective of becoming an established brand in the children’s fashion industry. Based in Burgos (Spain), the company designs and sells clothing for children aged between 2 and 16.

The company sells its products in its home country Spain as well as to Portugal, the UK, The Netherlands, Italy, Germany and the US, and is expanding its market presence using franchises, multi-brand channels and online sales.

With these ambitious expansion plans, Trasluz decided to introduce state-of-the-art technology in order to automate the maximum number of logistics and distribution processes possible, and set up an effective track-and-trace facility to trace every item of clothing ordered – from production through to delivery to the end client and all reverse logistics stages.

The chosen solution was an identification system based on passive RFID technology, which is fully integrated into the management software of the company.

Zebra RFID Printer Infographic

Posted October 16, 2013

Gaining the all the benefits of RFID normally involves turning your standard printed label into a RFID enabled one. Most RFID labeling solutions still utilize barcodes and other printed details on the front of the label for redundancy in case a tag were to get damaged, so finding a reliable RFID printer also means choosing a good barcode printer at the same time.

With the ever expanding options for RFID printers it can be a challenge finding one that suits your application without costing a fortune. Lucky for us, one of the leading manufacturers of barcode printers, Zebra, also makes a full line of RFID printers of the same high caliber. Whether you need a high volume industrial solution, a mobile in-the-field option, or a basic low-volume economical solution, Zebra has an RFID printer to fit any need.

Printronix RFID: Prevent Compliance Fines with Online Data Validation

Posted September 4, 2013

Screenshot_1Printronix has built a reputation for building top-of-the-line line matrix and thermal barcode printers and is doing the same with their superb line of RFID printers which are becoming some of the top devices in the RFID industry.

What makes the Printronix RFID printers, the SL5000r and SL4M,  unique is their ability to incorporate Online Data Validation (ODV) to their RFID printing solution. ODV technology ensures that all barcodes being printed are meeting the most stringent standards set by vendors such as Walmart and the Department of Defense. Maintaining compliance prevents hefty fines that can range up to $20 per box plus the cost to rework, pack and ship the corrected boxes. Thus, a return on investment for a Printronix RFID printer can be achieved on as a little as one poorly labeled shipment.

To learn more about the Printronix RFID printer or how ODV works, please contact one of our BarcodesInc RFID experts.


RFID Printing: Now More Reliable and Affordable

Posted August 29, 2013

2013-08-29_1021It has been over 40 years since the first RFID device was patented. In its early stages, it was seen as unreliable and far too expensive to adopt over barcode technology. However, more recently companies are starting to adopt RFID technology due to its improvements in readability and cost effectiveness. With these enhancements, companies are seeing the benefits of RFID over barcodes. For example, organizations conducting inventory counts or accounting for high value assets using barcode technology must scan each barcode individually, which requires a considerable amount of time and resources. Whereas RFID readers allow for mass data capture. Additionally, RFID provides real-time, accurate data, which offers tremendous advantages in several industries.

One facet of RFID that has helped simplify the technology and lower the costs is RFID printing. Instead of investing in more costly RFID tags that are typically overkill, companies have found that RFID labels (“Smart Labels”), which are adhesive labels embedded with RFID inlays, are suitable for their requirements. Thus, organizations have the freedom to print their own RFID labels by investing in a RFID printer and RFID label software, both of which have the ability to print barcodes too.
