Looking to see if there are any other flexographic printers out there that have a tried and true way of tracking their plates. I have considered RFID or labels, or metal hang tags, but all fall short in one way or another.
I feel like labels on the back would get constantly destroyed from stickyback
RFID might survive but we sometimes have plate slugs smaller than an RFID square tag
Metal hang tags are fine but for sure will get lost and get lost often.
Is there like an injectable pill style rfid that we could put in the side of a plates waste area?
Any plate manufacturers out there that embed rfid? Even if it was just a readable serial number that’s all I would need.
Looking for thoughts and ideas
