Walki introduces the award-winning Walki 4E technology. This involves a dry process of laser patterning paper and aluminium laminate and drastically reduces the total cost of passive radio frequency identification (RFID) tagging.
Such technology is environmentally friendly, as there are no chemicals used during the manufacturing process, and the process residue (metallic aluminium) is 100% recyclable. Participation gives us the opportunity to demonstrate how we have been able to create a totally new business out our traditional one by combining old technologies with new innovative ones, such as laser technology. “Walki is proud to present at the event as Finnish company”, says Sami Liponkoski, Business Line Manager at Walki’s 4E Technology division.
Many possibilities for the new technology
Using the Walki 4E technology, Walki Group has developed the Walki Pantenna, which is the first UHF RFID antenna that offers extensive possibilities for converting. It can be made of paper or even fabric and printed directly on a label or a hang tag.
Liponkoski, who will hold a keynote speech and participate in a roundtable discussion related to RFID technology at the event, says that apart from RFID tag antennas, Walki’s newest innovation can benefit a wide number of other applications such as flexible batteries, photovoltaics, and mobile handset antennas.
