Buying Versus Leasing Product Identification Equipment
Specify Alternate Text

Capital expenses can be tough to get approved and can hold up much needed upgrades at the plant level. In fact – old, faulty, and inadequate equipment can cause costly disruptions to production, impacting the bottom line more significantly than the cost to upgrade. For manufacturers without the available capital to invest in purchasing new equipment, leasing can be a great option.

Just as it puts manufacturers’ minds at ease to have a reliable traceability mark on their products, it greatly simplifies accounting processes to have a predictable monthly payment for product identification equipment such as inkjet printers, labelers, thermal transfer printers, and laser coders. Flexible leasing options for coding and labeling equipment makes this possible.

The same way one would trade-in to lease a larger vehicle to accommodate a growing family, leasing can be a great option to help plants expanding their production keep up with demand without breaking the bank. When choosing to lease, manufacturers can consider covering hard costs for the equipment alone or can opt into including soft costs for things such as preventive maintenance and on-site technical support into their monthly payments. Manageable monthly payments that bundle the equipment, consumables and parts and services needed to keep coding and labeling operations running smoothly make it accessible for even the most budget-conscious facilities to benefit from the latest equipment for coding their products.

If you’re exploring the possibility of leasing your product identification equipment for printing your barcodes, date codes, lot codes, etc. in real-time, then look for a program with the following characteristics:

  • Low, fixed monthly payments to improve your cash flow
  • Bundled tax and installation charges
  • Bundled consumables and technical services
  • Quick application and approvals process for financing

  • Is training production line workers creating a challenge? No problem!  Posted 7 years ago
    Companies rely on engineers or technicians to keep production lines up and running. These job functions are essential to hitting production targets, so it is key that their skill level on equipment is proficient. When making the decision to replace this equipment, the amount of time and money that will have to be invested in training your labor is a major deciding factor.
  • Don’t let fast drying ink slow down your CIJ coding process Posted last year
    Continuous inkjet printers (CIJ) use super-fast drying solvent-based inks. One of the technology challenges presented by these inks is that they aren’t too particular wherethey dry. With CIJ technology, the formation of drops from an inkjet stream creates a mist (or satellite drops) which builds up a layer of ink over time on the components inside the CIJ print head, causing print failure. Routine cleaning of ink with solvent from the components in a print head is required to maintain best print quality and uptime.
  • How do I get labels to stick in hot and humid environments? Posted 4 years ago
    Something to be aware of when considering using labeling for product identification in a hot or humid environment is that labels are sensitive to temperature, making facility environment temperature a determining factor in choosing what label material to use on a product.
