GlueLogix Nip Driven Rewinder

Servo Driven Rewinder
In 2012, GlueLogix introduced a rewind system designed specifically for RFID.  Its key feature is a servo driven nip, which allows precision stops, quick acceleration, and fast continuous motion, along with controlled paper path for variable printing.  We will equip it for UHF, HF or both, and ship it to your location.

In 2019, we started building the machines in house, and made a few changes:
  • Upstream nip with removable cover, supporting the removal of partially processed rolls.
  • Electronics and fuses are accessible through sliding end panels
  • Nip and rewind motors are bigger
  • Nip power supply (25 pounds) is in a separate box that can be placed on the floor.
2019 model

This system shipped in 2016 with UHF, HF, Keyence Lumitrax vision, and Kortho hot wax marker:

Lumitrax, Kortho, LRU1002, CPR40, CPRM02

This system was shown at RFID Journal Live in 2014:



Writing HF ISO14443-A: 2019: Shows stop-start, singulated HF encoding of constant data on the 2019 model rewind machine with upstream nip.

Writing HF ISO15693 from Vision Data: 2018: Shows stop-start, singulated HF encoding from vision data.  The vision system is the high end Keyence CVX-400 system, capable of 1D and 2D codes, OCR, inlay detection, and image archiving.

Writing UHF Gen2: 2012: Shows stop-start, singulated Gen2 encoding on the GlueLogix Rewinder (WMV format, 2 MB).

Reading UHF Gen2: 2012: Shows continuous read test on the
GlueLogix Rewinder (WMV format, 2 MB).

Encoding HF NFC: 2012: Shows stop-start encoding of NFC,
with CSV data merge, on the GlueLogix Rewinder (WMV format, 5 MB).

Supported Readers and Tags

LineLogix currently supports:
  • UHF Gen2 on Feig LRU02
  • HF ISO15693, ISO14443-A, -B and ISO18000-3 Mode 3 (aka HF Gen2) on Feig HF readers.

Software Features


Tests and Actions

  • Count and Read - two ways to read-test inlays
  • Write and Serialize - two ways to write data to inlays
  • Barcode and Camera Operations - verify barcode data from inlays, write barcode data to inlays (custom), mark labels bad based on smart camera screening (custom)
  • Serial Translation - realtime translation of serial data strings, measured at 5 mS lookup in a 128K record database.
Encoding Modes
  • Constant Data
  • Lines in order from a CSV
  • Data from a CSV, looked up by Vision or by Chip UID/TID
  • Data computed on the fly by a macro, executed on each chip

Status Dec2020

  • 2020 saw a lot of feature additions and updates, including support for NTAG424DNA.
  • Two of the new design rewinds shipped in 2019. A third was built to order with shipment delayed due to covid. This was a big change after a few years of low demand.
  • In 2019, GlueLogix started building rewind machines in house, vs. reselling them from an automation company. It was a big change, but now we control the design.
  • The tenth GlueLogix rewind machine shipped in August 2016. It included a Keyence Lumitrax vision system, Kortho hot wax marker, and reader/encoders for UHF Gen2, ISO15693, and ISO14443.
  • GlueLogix Rewind Machines are in use across the USA, with one in Australia.
