RFID inlay production WCE machine series

RFID inlay production WCE machine series

Flexible platform for antenna embedding and RFID inlay production.

The WCE2000 sets the standard for high-speed wire embedding and RFID inlay production: Superior quality, highest accuracy and unmatched productivity at an unbeatable price-performance ratio. The system can be designed to perfectly match your needs: sheet to sheet (S2S) , reel to sheet (R2S) , or reel to reel (R2R).

The WCE machine series are tailor-made solutions for the development of mid-size and large volume RFID inlay production.

All concepts enable a combination of automatic punching of modules, module placement, wire inlays, and electric connection of module and antenna. Antenna layout can be programmed with the “Easy Create” software tool. Wire embedded antennas produced on ruhlamat machines are extremely cheap and yet provide the best product characteristics compared to etched or plated antennas.

Innovation: Antenna Production by 3D Wire Laying

3D Ultrasonic Wire Laying for Ice-Free Car Bodies The concept of "autonomous driving" is dependent on a large number of sensors. This also includes ultrasonic sensors installed at different positions in the vehicle. It is essential that the car body parts behind which the sensors are placed are ice-free even in winter. So far, solutions for sub-zero temperatures that originate from the production of window heaters have been tested. Wire structures are applied to a film and then joined to a body component by overmoulding or bonding. The machine developer Ruhlamat, in cooperation with a robot manufacturer, has developed an innovative solution that makes this additional work step unnecessary and is more flexible in the design of wire structures on 3D contours.
