Advantages of conductive ink in reducing printing cost

RFID tag as a smart tag, the former refers to a mixed state of friction with both dry friction and boundary friction, which is being paid attention to by more and more users and label manufacturers. However, unlike other label products, this kind of tag can be completely completed by printing. To complete the printing process of RFID tag by using printing technology, only new conductive ink can be used

the conductive ink for RFID tag is composed of fine conductive particles or other special materials (such as conductive polymers). After printing on the substrate, it plays the role of wire, antenna and resistance. The ink can be printed on a flexible or hard substrate to make a printed circuit, and the antenna printed with conductive ink can receive radio signals dedicated to RFID. Nowadays, using conductive ink to make RFID tag antenna in high-speed printing has outstanding advantages

1. Excellent conductive effect

as we all know, smart tags are new tags with more powerful functions than traditional data tags, including RFID tags, explicit/implicit anti-counterfeiting tags and sensor tags with indication of product status. In RFID tags, conductive ink can be used to connect the components of the tag and act as a sensor or antenna

2. Reduce cost

in the promotion of RFID tags, the biggest problem is the cost. The price of each RFID tag is US $0.3-0.6. For those high-end products, an increase of $0.50 can be accepted by manufacturers and consumers, because for them, RFID tag is an excellent identification and tracking device, which brings more convenience and benefits. However, for China. For low-grade daily consumer goods, RFID tags are not easy to accept. After all, no one can accept an ordinary toothpaste that has increased by $0.50 because of the use of RFID tags

conductive ink saves the cost of RFID tag from two aspects. First of all, in terms of material cost, the price of ink is lower than that of stamping or etching metal coils; Secondly, in terms of material consumption, stamping or etching consumes a lot of metal, while conductive ink printing antenna or circuit has high speed, low cost and high efficiency

in the past, conductive ink only used silk for printing. Now, it has been extended to offset printing, flexographic printing and gravure printing. Flint ink signed an exclusive license with R.T. circuits to use conductive ink in offset printing. This is an important technological progress, which promotes the production and use of RFID tags. Especially large retailers can ask suppliers to provide goods with RFID tags

for manufacturers, retailers and consumers, smart tags provide a real-time and visible product item. The extensometer manufactured with this structure can measure 10 minute small deformation records with high precision, which can help users master the commodity status and each link of the supply chain

prospect of RFID tags

the global RFID tag market reached US $4 billion in 2004 and is expected to exceed US $7 billion in 2006. At the RFID seminar held in Shanghai, experts predicted that the global RFID market will reach 300 billion US dollars in 2010. Although the results predicted by different institutions are different, they all depict the application prospect of RFID tags

with the full opening of the commodity market, the process of comprehensively popularizing and applying RFID tags in China has been accelerated. In the future, China will need more than 3 billion electronic labels, including 83 million electronic consumer goods; Cigarette products need 800 million pieces; alcohol products need 130 million pieces; It products need 1.3 billion to 1.4 billion pieces, and other products need about 700 million pieces

China has started relevant technology research and development and standard formulation. In February 2004, the national standard working group on electronic labels was announced to be established. They are responsible for drafting and formulating China's national standards on electronic labels. At the end of April, Chinese enterprises have joined the RFID global standards organization EPC global and established EPC Global China in the same period
