Reducing operating costs, increasing productivity and improving quality: Every manufacturing company has to pursue these goals. In this article, we will show you how to achieve them in production and logistics processes with the help of smart labeling systems from Weber Marking Systems!
All-electric labelling saves resources
Compressed air can kill your efficiency given that pneumatic systems are considered to be a major power eater in production plants. Pneumatic energy is also used in labeling machines, for example to generate the applicator movement. The development department of Weber Marking Systems has launched electric solutions like the new Legi-Air 4050 B to provide customers with numerous advantages in industrial labeling:
- Cost reduction through less energy consumption
- No or lower maintenance costs of the pneumatic system
- Higher production output in labelling
- More precision in label positioning
- Better controllability
- Longer life, less wear
- No production downtime due to contaminated compressed air
Robots and labelers join forces to boost your productivity
The development towards smart factories that fully control and optimize all processes without human intervention will increasingly depend on industrial automation. When robots assist our labeling systems, they become a dream team for industrial label automation. With joined forces, they maximize efficiency, precision and process reliability in manufacturing and logistics. We regularly present innovative collaborations such as our fun installation with Sepro Group, which served personalized drinking cup to the visitors.
Zero-downtime solutions for continuous production
Malfunctions, breakdowns, lack of labels… if production stops because a machine has an error, it can get expensive for the company. In order to avoid this, Weber develops labeling systems with a zero-downtime option. In the past, zero-downtime functions were outsourced to large, external control systems housed in bulky control cabinets. Now, in the age of IoT, our labelers are already equipped with this option from the start. No more need to update the entire production line!
Minimized downtime during batch changeover
The growing demand for product individualization and mass customization is changing manufacturing processes. Small batch production – down to lot size one – requires businesses to implement smart strategies and technologies for lean production and variant management. Time eaters may also lurk in labeling and marking processes along your production and logistics lines: Product diversity typically entails frequent changeover of equipment and settings. This leads to downtime at the expense of your efficiency. If you want to increase productivity, make sure to use labeling and marking systems that reduce set-up times in the best possible way.
Consider replacing labels with ink
Did you know that you can save up to 60% costs by replacing labels with inkjet printing? It is also more sustainable because there is no waste from backing paper. The ink cartridges are recyclable and only need to be replaced after several thousand codings. Weber Marking’s large-character inkjet printers, the new Markoprint integra PP 108 model in particular, make it possible.
