Gerber Introduces Edge FX Thermal-Transfer Printer
System includes RFID technology.
The foil system includes RFID (radio frequency identification) technology. A foil-integrated RFID tag works with the printer's RFID reader/writer to read the foil's color, compare actual roll length to the job's requirements, and update the tag with the remaining foil length. "This feature accelerates products and prevents costly errors," says Tony Veatch, group product manager for Gerber. The Edge FX foil line includes GerberColor Spot, Process, Transparent, Medal, L.T. Heat Transfer, Special Effects, and the Finishing Series. (Gerber Scientific Products: www.gspinc.com)
