RFID Printer

Definition - What does RFID Printer mean?

An RFID printer is a printer that creates RFID smart labels. These labels use radio frequency technology to transmit information through user systems. These printers add specific digital functionality to images by embedding RFID labels into different types of print formats.

Techopedia explains RFID Printer

In many cases, RFID printers apply RFID technology to barcodes so that, as a result, while moving through a shipping or manufacturing process, either an RFID reader or a barcode reader can interpret the results.

Conventional RFID printers use an RFID head to print, using thermal transfer technology. These printers print tags for interpretation through radio wave technologies. An RFID tag includes an integrated circuit and antenna. Smart labels are made of adhesive material with an RFID tag inlay.
