Xerox to use printed memory on cartridges

Xerox to use printed memory on cartridges

August 5, 2015

The OEM has partnered with Thinfilm to apply memory counters to inkjet cartridges.sheetnfcbarcodechips

Next Big Future reported on the deal Norwegian technology company Thinfilm signed with Xerox, in which they will provide “printed smart memory tags” onto Xerox cartridges “so that you will know exactly when to replace the cartridge”. Each tag costs “less than one dollar” to produce, with the company signing a deal to print 1.3 billion units, working out at around “a penny or a few pennies per cartridge”.

Thinfilm is capable of printing, roll-to-roll, around one kilometre of memory, with each square centimetre including around 20 bits of memory. The roll-to-roll method allows electronic labels to be printed “that offer a cost-per-function untouchable by any other technology”, with electronic labels featuring “memory, sensing, display” and wireless communications able to be created by the company “for tens of cents”.

Other areas in which the technology will be used in future include “temperature sensing”, “data storage” and “display”, with some “stand-alone” but “an even greater number” to be “readable via close-proximity wireless communications”, such as near-field communication (NFC) devices. Thinfilm has also reportedly signed deals with Diageo, the World Customs Organisation (WCO) and a range of companies in the “spirits, tobacco and fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industries”.

Davor Stija, CEO of Thinfilm, stated: “Thinfilm’s technology has the potential to fundamentally change the way consumers, products and brand owners all interact. These agreements show recognition of that vision, and we’re excited to partner with global leaders in our efforts to bridge the physical and digital worlds and make everyday items smart.”
