Zebra Silverline Solution
On-Metal RFID Asset Labels

Zebra's Silverline Solution is ideal for on-demand RFID asset tagging for all surfaces, including metal and liquid-filled containers. The benefits of RFID are well known in industries from manufacturing and retail to transportation and healthcare. RFID systems—labels, printers and readers—enable inventory and equipment tracking in real time, helping you make maximum use of virtually all your assets.

There has been one glaring gap in RFID asset tagging. RFID read performance deteriorates significantly when a traditional RFID label is applied to a metal surface, or to a liquid-filled asset. This limits the use of RFID technology for tracking valuable assets like tools, automotive and machine parts, IT equipment, returnable containers, medical devices and equipment and liquid filled containers.

To produce an effective read range when applied to these type of surfaces, the tags must be slightly thicker than traditional RFID labels, making them incompatible with standard thermal RFID printers. Zebra and Confidex have partnered to release the first available solution for printing and encoding on-demand RFID labels for all your metal and liquid-filled assets.

Zebra and Confidex have worked together to develop this unique solution consisting of a redesigned ZT410 RFID printer, optimized Silverline labels and high quality Zebra ribbons. This combination provides for excellent print quality, encoding accuracy and ease of solution deployment. Silverline labels, offered exclusively by Zebra, are available in different sizes to meet the needs of a wide variety of applications.
