ABSTRACT
In this article we discuss the importance of production technologies for tagging mass products in general as well as current and future developments of highly efficient printing processes in particular. After introducing the basics of printed electronics technology, we describe the fabrication of electronic labels by mass printing methods, like offset printing, and report on a recently developed carbon-based conductive ink, which can be used in common offset presses. Furthermore, we explain how to integrate printed electronics ID-codes into plastic devices and give a comparison of Auto-ID technologies. Finally, we outline the route to future printed electronic labels and the path towards fully printed RFID-tags.
