Size,One Station - Manufacturing Operation
Sees Pay Back in Less than Three Months
This smaller company realized considerable savings, increased operating
efficiency and accurate label placement with one print & apply station
added to their production line. With one person averaging three hours
per day to print labels and two people applying labels, production lines
moved along until one person was out, or labels were placed incorrectly.
This company could not afford the stiff penalties or rejection of shipments
for non-compliance to strict labeling specifications of the larger retailers.
Ordering several lots of preprinted labels, each with ordering minimums
and separate inventory control numbers added to their cost of business.
Each time a product changed, production conveyors stopped, and the labels
were changed to match the next product. Rolls of labels were damaged or
lost when not returned to a safe inventory place which resulted in increased
operating costs. After a careful assessment of the production process,
a new system using a combination of preprinted labels which were customized
by printing the variable information on demand, eliminated the need to
change the rolls of labels, increased efficiency on the production floor
and decreased inventory costs and waste. It took less than 12 weeks
to see their return on their investment in a single automatic print &
Five Day/Week Manufacturing Operation
Sees Break-Even in less than 90 days
runs a double-shift labeling operation, five days a week. Using a combination
of preprinted lables and batches of lables printed-on-demand, they estimated
one person for 4 hours per shift to print labels and 18 people working
both shifts to apply them to packages. The number of labels applied per
hour goes down when the label needs to be applied in an exact location
according to compliance mandates and quality control specifications. With
an automatic applicator system placed at each of 15 production lines,
labels are placed exactly where they need to go, faster and with a higher
degree of accuracy. The ROI on this system does not include any savings
for materials or warehouse space since this company did not change how
it used labels, simply how they applied the labels. Pay back on their
hardware investment can be seen in less than 90 days.
