Industrial Labelers - Keep Up Production Speed With Labeling Processes

As most all manufacturers know, a labeling process which is outdated can contribute to bottlenecks in production. Every package, case, or pallet that leaves your facility must have the proper label; otherwise, a disruption can result in lost production time, increased employee wages, and more. Essentially, an outdated labeling process may have a similar impact on production output as when other critical manufacturing equipment breaks down. What are some of the problems manufacturers face that can keep them up at night in regards to printer applicators and labeling processes?

  • Products that are incorrectly labeled
  • Labels fall off, making the ID of the product unknown
  • Poor quality representation due to poor labeling
  • Retailer charge-backs
  • Product rejection due to incorrect labels
  • Substantially higher investment in labor to keep old printer applicator running
  • Inefficiency and increased production costs when labels have to be applied manually
Regardless of your storage capabilities, shipping services and shiny new manufacturing equipment, if your facility is incapable of printing labels as quickly and efficiently as products are being manufactured, your production facility could become a bottleneck in the supply chain. Once you have determined an updated printer applicator is in order, it's vital to select the best solution for your needs. It's also important to determine how the new equipment will be integrated into your production environment, whether as a completely self-contained system or with an existing conveyor. Don't let outdated labeling processes make your facility the "bottleneck" in the supply chain! At Markem-Imaje, we offer long-term, proven solutions designed to minimize disruptions in production and provide quick ROI. Whether you are in need of print and apply labeling solutions or other industrial labelers, we are trusted around the world for delivering quality, cost-effective solutions.
