Efficiency Enhancement for an Industrial Manufacturer

The Challenge

An industrial manufacturer faced operational challenges as labels on their products, stored outdoors, were falling off due to weather conditions and the printed images on the labels were fading, leading to increased rework rates. The manufacturer aimed to improve operational efficiency by eliminating label stapling and sought a solution to the fading image issue.

The Solution

Following on-site surveys across multiple facilities and thorough testing, AutoMate proposed a label/thermal transfer ribbon combination that, although priced higher than the previous labels and ribbons, offered substantial benefits. The chosen combination ensured a more durable label resistant to weather elements and increased operational efficiency by eliminating the need for stapling.

The Result

The industrial manufacturer adopted the recommended label/thermal transfer ribbon combination which led to increased throughput, reduced non-compliance fines by more than 5% and improved efficiency driving increased profitability and lower Total Cost of Ownership.
