During the recent years we observe a growing number of smart packaging applications. Within this field radio frequency identification (RFID) technology contributes remarkably to the progress by providing the matching communication / data transmission opportunities. In order to employ RFID technology for packaging applications the availability of highly functional RFID transponders (antenna + silicon chip) is necessary, which satisfy a maximum of communication reliability and reading distance. We report on a significant improvement of the performance of existing transponder systems by the introduction of three dimensional (3D) antennas which can be printed cost efficient directly on the planar packaging material and become three dimensional in the folding step of erecting a cardboard box. These 3D antennas for different frequency ranges, each particularly designed regarding layout and dimensions of the package and its content open a wide range of reliable packaging applications and therefore contribute remarkably to the development of the “internet of things”.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
