Production should be as seamless as possible. Changeovers can inhibit seamless production. If you are a manufacturer that runs multiple products down the same line, we’ve got a solution to help you switch to different batch/date/lot codes more simply, accurately, and timely.
By combining the Linx 7900 CIJ printer with the QuickSwitch barcode scanner, operators can scan codes to automatically call up a pre-defined message from the 7900’s memory. This message contains the message, date, and other parameters pre-determined by the operators. Data can also be sourced from a PC or PLC, providing more automated code set up options. With this capability, there is no need to manually search for and select a message during each change over. Simply scan, confirm, and resume printing!
The client, an aluminum supplier to the die-casting and gravity-casting industries was preprinting and applying labels to identify multiple batches of aluminum sows for their clients. Due to the fact that the aluminum sows are often stored outside, the labels frequently came off and required employees to continually check on each batch to ensure all remained correctly labeled.
