AMI offers fully automated, high speed RFID screen printers
Dec 22, 2004
AMI now offers fully automated precision screen printers for the RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) card and label manufacturing industry.
AMI high speed screen printers optimize the precision and speed of RFID antenna printing using newly developed high performance inks. Low-cost screen printing of RFID antennas offers significant savings over commonly used, costly subtractive manufacturing processes.
AMI's RFID printer models are available in either PC or PLC control versions accepting screens up to 20"x 20" in size. Advanced, computer controlled precision printers are fully programmable, using servo and stepper motors for critical machine movements. These models are designed with precision X, Y, O screen registration alignment and incorporate a fixed vacuum print platen with an adjustable integrated web indexing mechanism.
Fully automatic high-speed web (reel to reel) configurations include printers, infrared dryers and loop control stations. Single or multiple RFID antennas can be printed in a single print stroke with production rates as high as 1800 strokes per hour. Semi-automatic, stand-alone printers for RFID printing process development are also available.
