News (smart packaging)

 

Avery Dennison Corporation (Glendale, California) has recently become the first and only pre-qualified intelligent labels provider to receive the How2Recycle label for RFID paper hang tags. The label has been assigned based on a number of factors that How2Recycle considers: applicable law, collection (access to recycling), sortation (MRF package flow), reprocessing (technical recyclability), end markets. This development follows many years of research and development within Avery Dennison Smartrac to develop a unique combination of materials, adhesives, and inlay construction to enable RFID labels to be recycled alongside any other residential recycling stream, meaning they can be transformed with any other paper-based materials.

 

Optomec Inc. (Albuquerque, New Mexico) recently announced that one of its long-time production customers purchased another five Aerosol Jet 3D Electronics Printers, bringing its total count over time to 15 systems. The $1+ million order is part of a production ramp plan that will grow to more than 25 systems over the next 12 months.
