Description

 ARRANGEMENT FOR LABELING OBJECTS

The invention relates to an arrangement for marking objects and a method for producing the arrangement, according to the preambles of the independent claims.

The starting point for the present invention was the problem of identifying and / or demonstrably tracking goods wound on a core, for example on the way from a manufacturer to a consumer. Through clear identifiability and demonstrable traceability, a. Prevent confusion between goods of different quality and that the goods are delivered to the consumer of undesirable quality. The consumer also has the opportunity to report processing problems to the manufacturer in a targeted and precisely documented manner. In addition, a clear and tamper-proof inventory can be carried out quickly and easily in a warehouse.

Such a wound good can be thin, flat

Material such as B. paper, film or fabric or thread-like material such. B. yarn or wool, but also a cord, rope or ribbons, etc. act. The core can be substantially cylindrical, e.g. B. a drum - 2 -

mel, or substantially flat, e.g. B. a board, or spherically curved. As a concrete example, paper rolled up on a cardboard drum is considered in the following; of course, the invention can also be used for other applications.

In many applications it is common to mark objects or living things for identification with data carriers. Specifically for the above application example, it is also known to mark each individual paper roll with a data carrier in order to identify and / or track it on the way from a paper mill to a printing house. The easiest and most obvious way to identify a roll of paper would be its outside, i.e. H. to provide their outer surface or their base surfaces, or a packaging attached to the roll with an optically readable data carrier. However, this is impractical for the following reasons. The identification should work right down to the last piece of paper so that roles that have been started cannot be changed without being noticed. In addition, the rolls are picked up during transport, storage and processing of a wide variety of machines and devices; there are many different gripping devices which come into contact with the rollers in different ways. This fact also precludes attaching the data carrier to the base or outer surfaces of the roll.

Attempts to mount a data carrier on the cardboard drum have so far been unsuccessful for the following reasons. With this variant, optically readable data carriers are excluded from the outset. An electronically readable data medium seems to be best suited for this. Simple and inexpensive electronically readable data carriers are known and are used, for example, for theft Steel fuse used in department stores. However, such systems are unsuitable for the application described here because of the required clear identifiability of each individual role. This is because they can only be used for presence control (available / not available) or at most with a very small code pool.

An electronically readable data carrier with inductive transmission would offer a sufficiently large code stock. Such includes an electronic storage medium and inductive transmission means. The data carrier is usually applied to a support element, typically in a rigid housing, which is attached to the object to be identified. The economically favorable and at the same time technically satisfactory attachment to the object is associated with great difficulties if the object is a good wound on a core. The known data carriers are poorly suited for this. They are too expensive, cannot be attached to the object mechanically, cannot be attached to an uneven surface, are not flat enough to be wrapped around with the goods, or have too short a range to pass through the wound goods to be queried through.

It is an object of the invention to provide an arrangement of an electronic data carrier on a support element which does not have the above disadvantages. It is also an object of the invention to provide a method for producing such an arrangement.

The object is achieved by the arrangement and the methods as defined in the independent patent claims. The arrangement according to the invention for the identification of objects contains at least one electronic data carrier and one supporting element. The support element is flat and flexible, so is z. B. a paper, and the at least one data carrier is applied to a surface of the tag element. The data carrier contains an electronic storage medium, for example a chip, and inductive transmission means, for example an induction coil. In a preferred embodiment, at least one surface of the support element is at least partially covered with an adhesive layer. By means of this adhesive layer, on the one hand the at least one data carrier can be applied to the support element and on the other hand the arrangement or parts thereof can be attached to an object. Thanks to the flexibility of the support element, the shape of the arrangement also adapts to an uneven object, so that the invention makes it possible, for example, to identify cylindrical objects. The dimensions of the data carrier need not necessarily be small, but can, for example, be of the order of half the circumference of the object. This enables the use of large induction coils with a correspondingly long range.

In the method according to the invention for producing the arrangement according to the invention, at least one surface of a flat and flexible support element is at least partially covered with an adhesive layer and at least one electronic data carrier is applied to the support element.

The arrangement according to the invention is preferably used to identify goods wound on a core. The invention is explained in detail below with reference to figures. The following schematically show:

Arrangement.

In Figures 2-5 and 7, the proportions of certain elements may not match reality for didactic reasons. Figure la shows an arrangement 1 according to the invention of several, for example three, data carriers 2.1-2.3 on a support element 3, and Figure 2 shows a cross section along the line II-II through the arrangement 1 of Fig. 1. The data carriers are 2.1-2.3 applied to a first surface 31 of the support element 3. A single data carrier 2.2 contains an electronic storage medium 21 and inductive transmission means 22. The electronic storage medium 21 can be designed, for example, as a chip with a microelectronic circuit with a memory for storing and outputting a unique code. The inductive transmission means 22 can bpw. be designed as an induction coil which, when the code is interrogated by means of inductive coupling, interacts with a stationary interrogation antenna 52 (shown in FIG. 7), for example another induction coil, for the transmission of energy and information.

The arrangement 1 shown in FIG. 1 a has, for example, three sub-arrangements 10.1-10.3, each with a data carrier 2.1-2.3. According to the invention, however, arrangements with more or fewer data carriers are possible. Thus, a single sub-arrangement 10.1 itself again represents an arrangement according to the invention with a single data carrier 2.1. Dashed lines 30.1-30.4 between the data carriers 2.1-2.3 indicate possible predetermined breaking points along which the support element 3 could be severed in order to divide the sub-arrangements 10.1-10.3 in a particular application to attach to objects individually. The data carriers 2.1-2.3 are arranged in a row, that is to say "one-dimensionally", on the support element 3 in the arrangement of FIG. This does not necessarily have to be the case; "Two-dimensional" arrangements, similar to a stamp sheet, are also possible. The following considerations regarding the dimensioning of the (here circular) induction coil 22 and the sub-assemblies 10.1-10.3 relate to an application for which an example is given in FIGS. 6-8. An arrangement 1 with a single data carrier 2 is considered. The arrangement 1 is fastened to a core 41, for example a cardboard drum, on which a thin flat or thread-like material 42, for example paper or a tape, is wound into a roll 4. The diameter of the cardboard drum 41 is D, for example, D j = 100 mm, and the diameter of the roll 4 is D 2 , for example D 2 = 1'250 mm. If the information stored on the data carrier 2 is to be read out, a minimum range of R> (D 2 - D j ) / 2 = 575 mm is required. The range R or the inductive coupling between two induction coils 22, 52 strongly depends on the diameters or the enclosed antenna area of the two coupled coils 22, 52. Theory and experiments show that relatively large induction coils 22, 52 with diameters of approximately d> 150 mm (cf. FIG. 1 a) are required for ranges R of the order of magnitude specified above. Such a large induction coil 22 on the arrangement 1 must itself be flexible and be applied to a flexible carrier element 3 in order to be adaptable to the shape of the core 41 or to be wound onto the core 41 itself.

When dimensioning the arrangement 1, however, in addition to the required range R, the geometry of the core 41 must also be taken into account. Since the core 41 and the roller 4 are rotationally symmetrical in the exemplary embodiment of FIGS. 6-8, an exact orientation of the data carrier 2 with respect to the stationary query antenna 52 cannot be guaranteed in practice. In addition, it should be noted that when the two induction coils 22, 52 are aligned orthogonally, there is no coupling and that electromagnetic phases in phase opposition weaken. The following general rule of thumb for the diameter d of the induction coil 22 and thus also the Derive measurements of the arrangement 1 according to the invention: The ideal circular coil diameter d and the ideal data carrier dimensions a, b lie in the region of half the circumference of the core 41, ie d ~ a ~ b ~ πD / 2 ~ 160 mm. In this embodiment, good results were obtained with coil diameters of d ~ 200 mm; The arrangement 1 according to the invention thus has dimensions of approximately a ~ b> 250 mm.

In a special embodiment of the invention, optically or visually perceptible character strings 15, as shown in FIG. 1 a, for example alphanumeric characters or bar codes or the like, are additionally provided. In the context of the invention, these characters can be arranged on the same support element 3 as the data carrier 2 with the electronic storage medium or on a separate support element. This combination according to the invention, on the one hand, of the data carrier with the electronic storage medium and, on the other hand, of the optically or visually perceptible characters, enables the objects to be monitored and checked in accordance with the requirements. In this way, alphanumeric characters or character strings can be directly recorded by a person without difficulty and sent for further verification. This applies equally to barcodes that can be detected using simple, commercially available reading devices, with corresponding signals being recorded in a conventional manner wirelessly or on a conventional storage medium, such as a floppy disk or the like, and fed to a computer for further evaluation. If the object identified is a motor vehicle, the data carrier with the electronic storage medium can be arranged, for example, on the rear window and the support element with the optically or visually perceptible characters can be arranged in the region of the front window. As already mentioned, a common support element can also be provided within the scope of the invention. The named optically or visually Acceptable characters can be applied to the associated support element by a printing process, a photographic process or as a lamination or the like.

For attachment to tubular objects 41, the antenna loops 22 of the arrangement or of the support elements 3 can also be non-circular, but e.g. be elliptical or rectangular, so that a larger antenna area can be applied to a predetermined size of a tubular object 41. Fig. Lb shows a rectangular antenna loop 29. For this purpose, the width bl of the antenna loop can e.g. correspond to half the circumference of the object 41, while the greater length al of the antenna loop is aligned along the tube axis of the object. With an antenna area of a non-circular antenna loop which is enlarged as a result, a larger transmission range R can accordingly be achieved.

The antenna loop (bl) preferably covers a quarter to a half of the circumference of a tubular object 41.

The arrangement according to the invention can be used for identifying objects of various types, for example containers, parcels, shopping baskets and the like, which are not always tubular, but can also have spherical surfaces, for example. Arrangements according to the invention can also be used to monitor and mark motor vehicles or motor vehicle components during manufacture in the factory and during transport from the factory to a delivery warehouse, for seamless monitoring, for monitoring the career and for identification. - 10 -

To attach the arrangement 1 or the support element 3 to a spherically curved object, the flexible support element 3 can also be designed to be elastic and have a linear antenna loop 22, 29 as inductive transmission means, so that the elastic support element 3 with the linear antenna loop can in principle be any Can adjust the type of curved base.

1c shows, as a further example, an arrangement 10.8 with a support element, which is designed in a ring shape with an outer (30a) and an inner boundary (30b), which are also easier to attach to spherically curved supports.

The chip 21 (see FIGS. 1 and 2) is typically an electronic circuit on a silicon substrate with a height of <0.5 mm. It is connected to the induction coil 22 via electrical connections 23, 24. The induction coil 22 essentially consists of electrically conductive material 26, for example copper, and preferably has a plurality of, for example 50 to 60, essentially circular (or flattened ring-shaped) turns 25.1, 25.2,... Which are close to one another . In this case, the individual turns 25.1, 25.2 must be insulated from one another by electrically insulating material 27, for example insulation varnish. The turns 25.1, 25.2, ... can be arranged on the first surface 31 of the support element 3 next to one another, one above the other or, as indicated in FIG. 2, both next to one another and one above the other. The induction coil 22 typically has a height of h 2 <0.5 mm and a width of c ~ 4 mm. The induction coil 22 is produced, for example, by winding a metal wire 26 surrounded by at least one electrically insulating layer 27 in connection with the baking lacquer process. The induction coil 22 can, for example, also by vapor deposition or - 11 -

Printing a coil structure directly onto the support element 3 or onto a separate coil support element, which is later applied to the support element 3.

The support element 3 is flat and flexible. This can be, for. B. a paper, a plastic film or a fabric; the day element 3 can also be composed of several layers. In a preferred embodiment shown in FIG. 2, the first surface 31 of the support element 3 is at least partially covered with an adhesive layer 33. This adhesive layer 33 has two functions: firstly, it creates a material connection between the data carrier 2 and the support element 3, and secondly, in one application (see FIGS. 6 and 7), it creates a material connection between the arrangement 1 and one to be identified Object 41 ago. The adhesive layer 33 can be an adhesive. For certain applications it can be advantageous if both the first surface 31 and an opposite second surface 32 of the support element 3 facing away from the data carrier 2 are at least partially covered with an adhesive layer.

It is normally undesirable for part of the arrangement 1 to adhere to another part of the arrangement 1 when the first surface 31 and the second surface 32 of the support element 3 come into contact with one another. Such a contact can occur, for example, when the arrangement 1 is rolled up as in FIG. 9. In order to prevent undesired mutual sticking together of parts of the arrangement 1, the second surface 32 of the support element 3 is preferably designed to be non-stick; that is, there can be no integral connection between the second surface 32 and the - 12 -

of the first surface 31 applied or to be applied in an application.

A first, preferred variant of the arrangement 1 according to the invention with an anti-adhesive second surface 32 is shown in cross section in FIG. This embodiment is constructed similarly to the embodiment of FIG. 2. In addition, however, the second surface 32 is at least partially covered with an anti-adhesive layer 34, for example a silicone layer.

In a second variant (not shown), instead of an anti-adhesive layer 34 applied directly to the second surface 32 of the support element 3, the second surface 32 can also be provided with a second adhesive layer, on which a further flat, flexible non-adhesive element, for example a film, is applied is. The exposed surface of this non-stick element is designed to be non-stick, for example covered with a non-stick layer. This variant can also be interpreted so that an "expanded" support element consists of the original support element, the second adhesive layer and the non-stick element; the second surface of the "extended" support element is thus also designed to be non-stick.

In the exemplary embodiment in FIG. 4, no surface of the support element 3 is coated. The data carrier 2 can, for example, be applied to the support element 3 with a material connection or else in another way, for example with a form connection. A coating with an adhesive layer can take place, for example, shortly before the arrangement 1 is attached to an object 41. - 13 -

FIG. 5 shows a further embodiment of an arrangement 1 according to the invention, in which the second surface 32 of the support element 3 is at least partially covered with an adhesive layer 33. Alternatively, in the same way, the first surface 31 could be covered with an adhesive layer, with the data carrier 2 being “cast” into the adhesive layer, i. H. would be covered with the adhesive layer. Of course, combinations of the embodiments shown schematically in FIGS. 2-5 also belong to the invention.

FIG. 6 shows an arrangement 1 according to the invention fastened on a cylindrical object 41, for example a cardboard drum, with a data carrier 2, and FIG. 7 shows a cross section along the line VII-VII through the arrangement 1 from FIG. 6. The embodiment shown here corresponds 3 has an adhesive layer 33 on the first surface 31 and an anti-adhesive layer 34 on the second surface 32. Thanks to its flexibility, the arrangement 1 optimally adapts to the object 41. The total height h <1 mm of the arrangement 1 is negligibly small compared to the diameter D x of the object 41. The arrangement 1 therefore does not hinder any applications such as winding a thin material 42 (shown in FIG. 8) onto the object 41. The arrangement extends approximately over half the circumference of the object 41.

FIG. 8 shows a roll 4 which arises when the cardboard drum 41 from FIG. 6 is wrapped with (transparently drawn in) paper 42. In the paper industry there is a need to clearly identify such rolls 4 and, for example, to track them on their way from a paper mill to a printing plant, which is possible with the arrangement 1 according to the invention. Also shown in FIG. 8 is a stationary interrogation device 5 with an interrogation antenna 52 in the form of an interrogation coil, whereby - 14 -

for a successful interrogation of a code stored in the chip 21, the distance between the interrogation antenna 52 and the arrangement 1 should be at most equal to the range R.

9 shows support elements 3a, 3b, which are in principle tubular, for insertion into a tubular object 41 with an inner diameter D 0 . The example of a support element 3a is tubular with a much smaller diameter than D 0 and for example with a target ?? Point that is broken open after being inserted into the object 41 and the ends of the support element 3 adjoin the inner wall of the tubular object 41 by a given internal tension or also by a light fixation with a releasable adhesive element. As a further variant, a support element 3b can also substantially correspond to the inside diameter D 0 of an object with sufficient play to insert and also replace a support element. Such support elements 3a, 3b can also be used reusably.

If the support element with the electronic data carrier is arranged on a core, in particular a roll, this can be done within the scope of the invention both on the outside 46, FIG. 6, on which the thread-like or thin material, for example paper, is wound or on the inner surface 45, FIG. 9, of the core or the drum. The arrangement on the inner surface is advantageous in cases in which a subsequent identification is required, for example if a paper roll originating from any paper mill is to be identified in a printing plant. This means that paper rolls can also be obtained from suppliers who do not have suitable equipment for applying the - 15 -

support element according to the invention are available on the outside of the drum before winding up the paper.

Advantageous embodiments of the arrangement according to the invention with passive identification systems can e.g. with frequencies of 100 - 1000 kHz, e.g. 125 kHz, work for energy and inclusion transfer and have laser-programmed read-only memory and EEPROM as read / write memory.

FIG. 10 shows schematically the production of a preferred embodiment of the arrangement 1 according to the invention. The starting point is a special paper 3 which, according to FIG. 3, is coated with an adhesive layer 33 on a first surface 31 and with a non-adhesive layer 34 on a second surface 32. Data carriers 2.1, 2.2, ... are applied to the adhesive layer 33 by establishing a material connection between each data carrier 2.1, 2.2, ... and the paper 3. The paper 3 with the data carriers is rolled up to form a data carrier roll 11, indicated by arrows 6.1-6.3. The non-stick layer 34 on the second surface 32 prevents adjacent turns of the data carrier roll 11 from sticking to one another. A disk roll 11 produced in this way can be easily transported.

To identify an object 41, for example in FIG. 6, a partial arrangement 10.1 (see FIG. 1 a) of the arrangement 1 according to the invention containing a data carrier 2 is unrolled from the data carrier roll 11, separated from the rest of the arrangement 1, for example by cutting, and attached to the object 41 by means of the adhesive layer 33. This can be done manually and / or mechanically. Of course, the arrangement 1 according to the invention is particularly well suited for automatic mechanical processing. This enables objects 41 to be marked quickly, inexpensively and in a technically perfect manner.
