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
Nip and rewind motors are bigger
Nip power supply (25 pounds) is in a separate box that
can be placed on the floor.
This system shipped in 2016 with UHF, HF, Keyence Lumitrax
vision, and Kortho hot wax marker:
This system was shown at RFID Journal Live in 2014:
HF ISO14443-A: 2019: Shows stop-start, singulated
HF encoding of constant data on the 2019 model rewind
machine with upstream nip.
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.
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).
NFC: 2012: Shows stop-start encoding of NFC, with
CSV data merge, on the GlueLogix Rewinder (WMV
format, 5 MB).

HF Gen2) on Feig HF readers.
Serialize - two ways to write data to inlays
Camera Operations - verify
barcode data from inlays, write barcode
data to inlays (custom), mark labels bad based on
smart camera screening (custom)
Translation - realtime translation of serial
data strings, measured at 5 mS lookup in a 128K record
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
Two rewinds have shipped as of July 2019 and a third
is being built, after a few years of low demand.
GlueLogix is now building the machines in house, vs.
reselling them from an automation company, which makes
it easier improve the design.
The tenth rewind machine was shipped this
Summer. 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.
