The application resides on a networked workstation called Barcode-prt (MODREP at PCBAI). A networked Intermec 3240 label printer on Hera called BarCodePCB is configured to work with this interface. Operation Starting Labeler Our label interface uses the professional labeling software NiceLabel as a development and print platform. What job 1 A Syteline background report generates and stores data to which label fields link. The report, numbers are in BC_Label.csv, queries Syteline for jobs with priority code <2, or with job number starting with EBR the system? and RWK. Fields include job number, item number, and revision level. To open the label interface: 1) Click the ICON titled BarCode Labels on the workstation desktop. 1 Ctrl F10, Engineering Reports, Bar Code Report that prints to C:PWA_LBLBC_Label.csv 1

D 06/28/2006 9000101-00 2) The interface connects to the associated label file, data file, and the print engine. 3) And, then opens the interface; below. Figure 1. Bar-Code Label Interface Printing Labels To create labels for your assembly: 1) Select the JOB NUMBER for the assembly from the selection list. 2
  • 3. ASSEMBLY LABELING PROCEDURES REV. D 06/28/2006 9000101-00 A Job Number may display when you first open the screen, so re-select your job to ensure you apply current Syteline data. Figure 2. JOB Selection List The interface then displays the item part number, ITEM P/N, and item revision, REV, as listed in Syteline for the selected job; see Figure 3. Figure 3. Part Number and Revision Level Displays LABEL PREVIEW shows the layout and data of your printed labels. Serial number is MMDDYY plus a counter – a serialized date code. The counter stores last number used, so no two labels print with the same date-counter code. Figure 4. Label Preview The label uses a linear bar code, type 128, that is 0.125-inch high with an expansion factor of 2. Annotated bar-code text, item numbers, and revision levels use Arial, 6-pt, bold font. These settings give the 1.25 x 0.25” label room for text and bar code. 2) Enter the number of labels you want to print. Figure 5. Entry for Number of Labels QUANTITY is a user entry to process partials or print extra labels. 3) Click PRINT to start the print job. 3
  • 4. ASSEMBLY LABELING PROCEDURES REV. D 06/28/2006 9000101-00 The printer prints the number of labels you entered in QUANTITY. Maintenance Supplies We use a thermal transfer printable label, which means the printer also has to have a thermal transfer ribbon. The Brady THT-13-473-10 label we use has the following specifications: Material: Glossy white static-dissipative polyester Media Size: 2.75-inch width web Label Size: 31.75 mm x 6.35 mm (1.25 in x 0.25 in) labels The label set up for the PWA/LRU Labeler has margins of: 0.14” left, 0.0” right, 0.01” top, and 0.002” bottom. The printer transfer ribbon is Intermec; part number 13062806. Ribbon alignment is critical for quality printing. See the Intermec 3240 manual to replace labels or ribbon. Align and adjust printing as indicated. Care Use the maintenance procedures listed in the Model 3240 product manual and getting started guide to ensure print quality. 4
  • 5. ASSEMBLY LABELING PROCEDURES REV. D 06/28/2006 9000101-00 Printing Revision Labels Revision Label Printer A Brady Model TLS2200 thermal-transfer printer, located on the production floor at PCBA, loaded with 0.5 x 0.275 labels is available for use when an assembly change requires a revision change on the original label. Brady TLS2200 printer The printer uses a ribbon cartridge; Brady R6010. Revision Label & Specifications Use Brady label number PTL-6-478 Product #: 80779 Size: 0.500quot; W x 0.275quot; H (12.70 mm W x 6.99 mm H) Printable Area: 0.500quot; W x 0.275quot; H (12.70 mm W x 6.99 mm H) Color: White Finish: Gloss Material Type: Polyimide Material Description: Static Dissipative Polyimide Adhesive: Static Dissipative Permanent Acrylic Agency Approval(s)/Compliance: ESD-approved for IEC 61340-5-1 and EN 100015-1, UL Recognized RoHS Compatibility: Compliant with RoHS Directive Special Properties: Low profile, Static dissipative adhesive & liner Max Lines of Text For Font: 2 Max Characters Per Line For Font: 11 Print Revision Labels To create labels for revised assemblies: 1) Type the new revision into code into the Brady printer. 2) Press Enter for each label you need 3) Use the built-in cutter to remove your revision label 4) Place the label over the revision on the original PCB or assembly label. 5
  • 6. ASSEMBLY LABELING PROCEDURES REV. D 06/28/2006 9000101-00 Vendor Requirements for Assembly Labels Vendor shall label assemblies where noted on assembly drawings with labels that include  a bar-coded serial number  the item part number  the item revision Every serial number shall be unique The bar-coded serial number is a serialized date code — CC plus MMDDYY plus counter — typically concatenated so the entire barcode sequence is read as one symbol.  CC is the first letters of the first two words in the company title Example: JJ for Jim's Job Shop Inc.  MMDDYY is the date of the completed assembly in month, day, and year  Counter is a three-digit sequence from 001 to 999 Figure 6. Label Preview Barcode Format Barcode format:  Linear bar code, type 128  0.125-inch high  Expansion factor 2 Text fonts:  annotated barcode text – Arial, 8-pt, bold  item numbers – Arial, 6-pt, bold  revision levels – Arial, 6-pt, bold These settings give the 1.25 x 0.25” label room for text and bar code Materials Printable label specifications:  Material – Glossy white static-dissipative polyester  Label Size – 31.75 mm x 6.35 mm (1.25 in x 0.25 in) labels 6
