Zebra Technologies RFID printers
Zebra Technologies demonstrate devices that print labels and encode RFID tags at the same time at ProMat 2011. RZ printers encode passive RFID codes. Label stock has the RFID embedded in it. Used for 24 hour warehouse/supply chain operations. Printers can be mounted to forklifts or carried by the forklift operator.
Retail organizations manufacturers are tagging apparel to track it in their operations. Printers can connect to RIM Blackberries and iPhones. High end printers can detect the tags automatically and calibrate themselves to the tag.
