Diversified Labeling Solutions Invests to Expand RFID Capabilities

Diversified Labeling Solutions (DLS) has invested in a Mark Andy servo die-cutter station to expand its RFID production capabilities.

The new die cutter gives DLS the advantage of inserting RFID inlays into preprinted material from any press, according to company officials, including the HP Indigo, as well as preprinted webs from other print companies. This allows for expanded prime RFID label production.

Since the demand for both prime labels and RFID technology continues to grow in the retail and logistics industries, this new RFID expansion will help DLS maximize opportunities for its distributors.

“Having the expanded capability to provide prime RFID labels allows us to offer customers a strategy for complying with the retail mandates that don’t sacrifice branding. We can also now offer fellow print companies the ability to insert RFID inlays into their customers’ printed labels and packaging,’ added Ryan Zins, DLS product manager for RFID Labels.
