Effectively moving products through manufacturing and into the retail supply chain requires a robust track‐and‐trace capability. You need to know when products came off the line, where they’re located and where they’re headed. In production environments that integrate manufacturing, packaging and shipping operations, the final step in this process is pallet labeling. Manufacturers that operate on a relatively small scale with a limited number of SKUs and shipments to only a few distributors or customers may be able to keep pace with manual pallet labeling processes. But high‐volume manufacturers that produce a variety of SKUs and prepare shipments to many destinations should consider an automated print‐and‐apply labeling system that supports higher throughput with lower unit costs. Diagraph offers an all‐electric print & apply pallet labeling system, freeing manufacturers from the potential inconsistencies often associated with conventional pneumatic labelers. And, since inconsistencies in pallet labeling have the potential to disrupt production and delay outgoing shipments, it’s critical to ensure your labeling solution delivers reliable results, shift after shift. To ensure uptime and maximize labeling consistency, Diagraph’s latest all‐electric print‐and‐apply labeling machine incorporates a variety of smart sensors that are engineered to detect potential problems and make automated adjustments on the fly. By incorporating smart sensors into our labeling solutions, we can help manufacturers maximize uptime, minimize or eliminate errors, and make it easier than ever to ensure compliance with customer labeling requirements. With smart sensor technology, a Diagraph print‐and‐apply labeling system can do things such as: Detect a missing label at the peel point and automatically advance the web past the missing label area to prevent double feeds and missed products Automatically monitor and adjust the application speed and pressure for every label to keep the system in sync with the production line even as the system ages Use sophisticated tamp sensors to ensure proper label application and placement across a wide variety of applications, including multi‐label applications and complex corner‐wrap label applications Automate adjustments needed to accommodate a wide range of label sizes for your product lines while minimizing or eliminating unproductive downtime In addition to smart sensing technology, Diagraph’s automated all‐electric PA7100 print‐and‐apply labeling machines employ Zebra ZE500 Series OEM thermal printer engine. This thermal printing technology delivers industry‐leading durability and performance anywhere 4‐ or 6‐inch labels are needed. One of the key advantages of Zebra’s print engine is all‐metal construction, which ensures long‐lasting durability. They also employ printer management tools that help detect problems before they impact productivity, making them the perfect companion to our smart sensor technology.
