The trading industry is facing a dramatic increase in incidences of shoplifting. The overall damage incurred by shoplifting per year totals approx. 5bn EUR in Germany alone.
RAKO ETIKETTEN has developed a hybrid label that comprises a printed product label plus an electronic RF antenna that functions as a product security system. The RF antenna is positioned under the product label and is thus not visible to the customer. This system allows products in the retail industry to be secured easily and effectively. The antenna is deactivated at point of sale. An alarm sounds at the security point, for example at an exit, in the event of theft. The RF hybrid label is produced in-house at RAKO ETIKETTEN in a specially created production and signal processing area.
The integrated anti-theft component is therefore an integral part of the product label that saves the additional step of label post-processing, for example the addition of an electronic anti-theft device at a later stage. Hybrid labels are a cost-effective and secure means of securing your products.
