LONDON, Sept. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Based on a new investigate on a pacifist radio magnitude marker (RFID) receiver prolongation market, Frost Sullivan presents Walki Group with a 2012 European Frost Sullivan Award for Technology Innovation for building a singular prolongation record that lowers element costs and speeds adult prolongation routine in an sourroundings accessible manner. The Walki 4E record involves a dry routine of laser patterning paper and aluminum laminate, that drastically reduces a cost cause concerned in RFID manufacturing.
The required routine deployed by competitors produces RFID antennas by soppy artwork regulating soppy chemicals. However, Walki Group’s pioneering record is characterized by mechanism to receiver prolongation and laser slicing of a antenna. The association uses paper – deliberate to be one of a best possibilities for organic substrates for RFID/sensing applications – as a substrate for a RFID receiver tags. After a laser cuts out patterns from a laminate done of aluminum and paper substrate, a aluminum excess is recycled.
The Walki 4E record is 10 times faster than a benchmark set by a competitors in manufacturing. The digital routine also allows any receiver to be different, ensuing in really brief response time and a intensely aloft expansion cycle. Further, a laser to receiver prolongation creates accurate geometries. Having good dimensional fortitude increases repeatability, ensuing in augmenting routine furnish and prolongation speed.
The mechanism to receiver prolongation enables small, intensely accurate settlement receptive with laser technology. Walki has a really parsimonious formation with a IC supply sequence enabling them to rise tiny integrated chips (ICs). Having smaller components can assistance in integrating with even compress inclination and gives some-more coherence on a pattern options. The top magnitude convenient with Walki’s antennas is 5.8 GHz, that in outcome covers a whole operation from low magnitude (LF), high magnitude (HF), ultra high magnitude (UHF), and microwave.
“Walki Group’s competitors miss a record advantage to furnish RFID tags during such a low cost and high volume platform,” records Frost Sullivan Industry Analyst Saju John Mathew. “The company’s singular technology, joined with a tellurian prolongation and placement network residence each need in mainstream RFID applications with vital cost reductions.”
RFID can have a outrageous impact in nearby margin communication (NFC) and barcodes, that put together, can be a rarely remunerative market. Walki 4E record can severely promote invasion of NFC antennas into a marketplace on a vast scale, essentially since of a low cost. The singular dry routine technique enables mixing fiber, polymer, plastics, and formulating a substrate of a client’s choice with adult to 9 opposite polymers. This accumulation of options – not accessible with Walki Group’s competitors – can capacitate other exploratory applications, where a polymers best wise a need can be chosen.”
Apart from RFID tab antennas, this record can severely advantage other applications such as photovoltaics, stretchable batteries, stretchable circuit boards, feverishness elements, and mobile handset antennas. Using Walki 4E technology, Walki Group has grown a Walki Pantenna, that is a initial UHF RFID receiver that offers endless possibilities for converting. It can be done of paper or even fabric and printed directly on a tab or a hang tag. This easy acclimatisation allows for high volumes delivering intensely fit and careful prolongation to a finish users in applications such as labels, hang tags, and singular outing tickets.
Walki 4E record is an sourroundings accessible process, as there are no chemicals used during a manufacture, and a routine excess (metallic aluminum) is directly recyclable. The altogether dry, low cost prolongation routine can inspire deploying a record in markets formerly unexplored.
“The low-cost parameter being plural with Walki Group’s record is really a boost to finish users, generally in singular outing ticketing, tags for library books, prepared distance labelling and attire object turn tracking,” says Mathew. “The Walki Group is means to fast yield any series of customised tab antennae, online peculiarity control, and a high turn of interactivity that ensures patron satisfaction.”
The power for RFID in existent and rising applications and deputy for barcodes is utterly high; a marketplace power can be extended with far-reaching scale adoption that is enabled by Walki’s customer-centric technology. The company, that employs over 1000 people, already has a total annual net sale surpassing $398 million with prolongation comforts in Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, UK, Russia and China, that enables it to simply dig vital geographies around a world.
Based on all these factors, Frost Sullivan is gratified to benefaction Walki Group with a 2012 Frost Sullivan Technology Innovation Award. Each year, Frost Sullivan presents this endowment to a association that has demonstrated aberration in building a technology, that significantly impacts both a functionality and a patron value of new products and applications. The endowment lauds a aptitude of a creation to a industry.
Frost Sullivan’s Best Practices Awards commend companies in a accumulation of informal and tellurian markets for demonstrating superb feat and higher opening in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, patron service, and vital product development. Industry analysts review marketplace participants and magnitude opening by in-depth interviews, analysis, and endless delegate investigate in sequence to brand best practices in a industry.
About Walki Group
Walki Group Oy, formed out of Espoo, Finland is a manufacturer of wrapping for steel and paper industries. They have grown a singular technology, Walki 4E, that is means to emanate pacifist RFID tags during 10 times a required benchmark set by attention players. Walk 4E will be means to support to a RFID marketplace bringing about cost efficacy and an sourroundings accessible prolongation process. Walki employs over 1000 people with a total annual net sale surpassing $398 million. Walki Group has operations in Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, UK, China, with their new foothold determined in Russia.
