Core-Based RFID Product Tracking

Applying the RFID tag to the core

In many cases it is not possible to use barcode-based ID on product-rolls. When barcodes are applied to the outer layer of products-rolls, line-of-sight to the barcodes must be guaranteed to scan them. Also, if the product material is being used, this leads to that the barcode is removed with the outer layer.

To avoid this, an RFID tag is applied to the core before the product is wound up. Optionally, the tag can also be applied inside the core. In this case the product material can already be on the core.

Often products vary in the width, and thus the size of the roll and the placement of RFID tag. The Logopak solutions can adjust for the different sizes to ensure that the tag is always put in the proper location.

Through the Logopak software, the integration into existing ERP / MES system is possible.

Key Facts

  • Enables track and trace of products (paper, plastic-foils, etc.) delivered rolled up on paper cores with RAIN UHF RFID.
  • The core can be tagged on the in-side with the product rolled up (410 DX RFID), or the core can be tagged on the out-side (410 T RFID) before the product is rolled up.
  • Both versions allow the product-rolls to be tracked after starting to use the product.


  • Automatic ID of rolls with different sizes.
  • Allows tracking of cores in the production and ensuring that the correct customer-specific material (thickness, quality, material) is delivered.
  • After production, the same RFID tag can be used for logistic / supply-chain purposes. Can be used by end-user of the product as well.

For 40 years, from their base in Hartenholm, Germany, Logopak has developed and produced integrated systems for labelling and coding technology from production to shipping. Logopak provides:

  • Labelling solutions
  • Real-time labelling Print & Apply
  • RFID and barcode systems
  • Industrial middleware

How to get maximum performance from a print and apply labeller

Our print and apply machines have been developed and engineered in Germany since Logopak engineers first invented them in 1983. Indeed, it was Germany’s reputation for precision engineering that drew Logopak’s English founder there to seek out a location to base his manufacturing operation. Building a machine that can run quickly is relatively simple. Building a machine that is both quick AND reliable takes real skill, and this is where engineering prowess makes the difference.
