Radio Frequency Identification, commonly known as RFID, is available in label form and can be automatically inserted into the ID of a core to ensure traceability of the roll throughout the packaging line. The labels can be pre-printed or printed prior to being applied to the core. Once applied, data identifying a variety of characteristics is written to the label.
Finished rolls can be individually packaged according to the RFID information being read. Roll quality, box and plug sizes, box labeling and palletizing can all be automatically processed utilizing RFID technology.
