Funding from Vinnova SEK 1 000 000
Project duration December 2015 - January 2017
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

We have implemented NFC Opensense in medical secondary packaging in high volumes in Jones Packaging´s production in London, Ontario, Canada. We have developed smartphone applications to demonstrate the smart package solution to prospective customers. We have also shown that it is possible to implement magnetic shields in the process. Magnetic shields are used to secure that the NFC be used / read on packages that contain metal.

Expected results and effects

The result from the project is a process that can be used to implement NFC Opensense in medical secondary packaging (and other types of packages) at very high volumes. There is also a possibility to add magnetic shields to the package so that the label can be used in packages containing metal. An example of this is blister packs. We hope and expect that this will lead to joint larger orders during 2017.

Planned approach and implementation

The project has been implemented according to plan and we have had a very good collaboration with Jones Packaging. The project has followed the original plan very well. The packaging consultant that has worked in the project has been very useful in assisting the integration of the Opensense label in the production at Jones Packaging.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
