Diagraph has recently announced the release of a $9,500 mid-range automated RFID printer/applicator capable of performing encoding rates of 32 products per minute with reject capability. This system incorporates the patented TampTenna, which allows RFID encoding to be performed outside of printer, on the tamp pad itself.

With this field-proven technology, only Diagraph can offer RFID with the reliable SATO Lt408 printer. The full system is delivered with the PA/4600 unit, RFID TampTenna, Reject Module, Warning Tower, and Stand. If higher application rates are required, a PA/6000 RFID system is available which handles rates in excess of 100 printed, encoded, and verified tags per minute.

The PA4600 RFID Label Printer/Applicator is one of the Platinum Series Label Print/Apply Systems from Diagraph. The Platinum Series is Diagraph’s 4th generation automated labeling systems.
