Transcript

  • 1. TAILORED LABEL PRODUCTS Eliminating Bar Code Errors with Digital Technology
  • 2. OVERVIEW  Traditional Barcode Processes  The Nature of the Beast (Inherent Barcode Issues)  What is it really costing you?  Cost extends beyond your facility  Evolution of Digital Print & Automation Technology for Barcodes  Improved Performance and Quality of Digital Printers  Inline Scanning & Verification  Offline Parsing & Verification  Raising the Bar on Expectations  What you should expect from your supplier?  Question and Answer Session
  • 3. TRADITIONAL BARCODE PRINTING PROCESSES Older Systems Using Manual Processes & Thermal Transfer or Direct Thermal Printing Inherent Mechanical Print Issues  Print head elements (or dots) are dirty or obstructed  Dirt, dust, and particulate contamination  Print head elements (or dots) are burned out  Print head misalignment  Energy setting is too high / low  Poor ribbon transfer  Heat sensitivity of face stock
  • 4. TRADITIONAL BARCODE PRINTING PROCESSES Older Systems Using Manual Processes & Thermal Transfer or Direct Thermal Printing Inherent Manual Process Issues  Errors occur when changing between processes  Cost of manual labor adds up quickly  Manual inspection much less accurate  High costs of errors that occur further down the supply chain
  • 5. TRADITIONAL BARCODE PRINTING PROCESSES What is it really costing you?  Re-labeling  Re-scanning  Supply Quality Engineering time  Prevents accurate error tracking  Loss of productivity  Manual re-entry of critical information  Chargebacks
  • 6. BENEFITS OF NEWER BARCODE PRINTING TECHNOLOGY Improved speed, quality and reliability of digital printers  Higher image resolution  High speed output  No head contact with substrates  UV Cured inks for high performance durability  More information in a smaller area
  • 7. EVOLUTION OF DIGITAL PRINT AUTOMATION FOR BARCODES Inline Scanning & Verification  Scans barcodes for errors up to 13 times inline at speeds up to 150 fpm  Quality/Readability Grade  C or better to pass lowest level of verification  Tier 1 Supplier barcodes are required to grade B or better  Eliminates errors more than 99.99%
  • 8. EVOLUTION OF DIGITAL PRINT AUTOMATION FOR BARCODES What happens When a Barcode Fails Verification?  Audible alert: an alarm is triggered  Visual alert: a blinking light  Failed barcode is sprayed/marked VOID with red XXXX inline  Failed barcode is simultaneously registered in the database  Sprayed/marked barcode is pulled from the production roll and then matched to the hardcopy manifest
  • 9. EVOLUTION OF DIGITAL PRINT AUTOMATION FOR BARCODES Offline Parsing & Verification  A proprietary system rescans the manifest data and print data after the job has completed re-checking for duplicate, missing, or sub-grade labels  This offline check doubles the accuracy of the verification process resulting in 99.99999% accuracy
  • 10. RAISING THE BAR ON EXPECTATIONS What You Should Expect From Your Barcode Label Supplier?  100% accurate barcodes  Expect whatever barcode grade level that is required or better, on every label  Barcodes that have been scanned for accuracy, readability, duplicates, etc. no less than 6 times during the inline process  No more voids in your bar codes  Overall cost reduction
  • 11. RAISING THE BAR ON EXPECTATIONS Questions & Answers
