    Linerless Labeling Solutions with Taken Sensor™ Technology

    November 1, 2018

    Since the introduction of multi-platform POS ecosystems, just-in-time delivery and asset management label printing technology has played a key role in the identification of products to allow easy documentation and management. In industries such as hospitality, companies come under pressure to improve data collection and reduce errors, many are quickly moving away from the traditional pen-and-paper based processes and are investing heavily in technology to increase productivity and efficiency. For example, in areas such as fast food, where its time management and order processing is imperative, staff currently struggle attaching order bills to cups, bags or wrap causing inaccurate data processing and missing orders. This issue is not just confined to hospitality. Retail distribution, logistics and warehouse businesses also have re-occurring issues trying to increase work productivity while printing. Many citing issues attaching different types of invoice labelling to their products. To resolve these issues, BIXOLON has developed a Linerless Labelling solution with B-linerless™ and Taken Sensor™ Technology. Benefits of B-linerless™ ​B-linerless™ is available in two sticky options, B-linerless™ Permanent featuring a permanent adhesive which is similar to traditional liner labels and B-linerless™ Re-stick supporting a removable and repositionable adhesive. It provides: Enhancing work productivity: Providing greater flexibility, linerless labels offer an ecological alternative to traditional label media. Allowing easy-to-use drop-in paper loading, Linerless labelling enables the possibility of providing a label of any length with the ability to still provide a clean cut without label gum build-up.Lower TCO: Removing the waste of silicon backing liner paper originally used in labelling, linerless rolls offer double the number of labels per roll, decreasing the number of roll changes. High Quality: Compatible with BIXOLON’s high-quality printers insures a long time use without jamming errors. Eco-friendly: Eliminating the waste bi-product of silicon liner backing paper, linerless labels help reduce paper waste. Why choose BIXOLON’s linerless labeling solution?Linerless paper typically has a reduced amount of adhesive spread across the media compared to traditional heavy adhesive paper which leave residue on a printer mechanisms and can cause paper jams during continuous printing. To counteract this, BIXOLON has installed Anti-Jam Technology in the SRP-S300. This technology provides special paper path design, an automatic guillotine cutting system with a revolutionary platen roller and sub roller designed with rubber material. Alongside BIXOLON’s Taken Sensor™ Technology which can calibrate this issue and make the linerless system run smoothly and effectively, by limiting linerless label printing until the current label has been removed. With these unique technologies, BIXOLON’s solution is compatible not only light adhesive linerless but also heavy adhesive linerless label printing differently from comparable solutions on the market.For more information visit http://www.bixolon.com/, http://blog.bixolon.com/ or alternatively speak to your local BIXOLON sales representative.

    Portable Printers in Transport and Logistics

    May 21, 2018

    We’ve all had things delivered after buying online or placing an order at the shops that had to be delivered. The deliveries are sometimes made, and a delivery note printed on the spot using a portable printer that the driver carries. These devices are often linked via mobile telephone technology to the logistics company’s systems for tracking, stock control, and financial reporting. Behind the scenes, though, there is even more mobile printing technology in use. The products in the warehouses are often labelled to note what product it is, where it is stored, and its age. These bits of data are often placed in a barcode that can be printed from a tablet, mobile phone, or any device connected to the local WiFi network. These labels allow the individual object to be tracked throughout its progress, from manufacture to delivery. Another use the mobile printing devices have is to create labels for boxes when there are a few items being packed for shipping. The system will record all that goes into the box via scanners, and can prepare and print off a label (with or without a barcode) to inform the recipient what they’re getting, but also (with barcode) allow for tracking via the use of scanners connected to the mobile phone networks. One of the great advantages to the technology is its flexibility. There are printers that will connect to almost any device. It might be best for some of the team to use mobile phones (iOS, Android, etc. are all compatible). For presentation of information to customers, it may be more useful to connect to an iPad or other tablet. Portable printers are also available for those devices. There are also products that can be used when the actual sales are taking place on the road. For mobile retail businesses such as coffee vans, credit card payments can be taken, receipts taken, and stock noted by having the systems interconnected. All the customer sees is that he has his cup of coffee quickly and easily. But the business has streamlined so many things that the savings in running the business is significant. The main benefit to your business do come in much improved time efficiency. Rather than chasing around trying to find a package in the system, the door-to-door tracking capability allow you to quickly locate it and inform your customer. The more advanced systems even allow the customer to track their packages online. The cost savings in stock management is even more compelling. Manual inventory can be cut back to a great extent. Placing orders for restocking can be automated. Time put into these things can be saved, and time is always very valuable.

    Development in Label Printing

    January 29, 2018

    Since the introduction just-in-time delivery, asset management and enterprise productivity label printing technology has played a key role in product identification to allow easy asset documentation and tracking. As there is increased pressure to improve the collection or data, many companies are moving away from traditional pen-and-paper processes and investing in technology to increase efficiency. While the demand continues to rise, the development for technology, particularly around areas of label printing continues to intensify. Used as one of the most basic forms of product tracking, product labelling has improved the efficiency throughout the complete supply chain. Using tracking data such as Picket Fence or Ladder barcodes to store simple numbers to innovations such as 2D or QR code labelling to hold part numbers and important product data. Standardising label printing Originally the production of labels today will come from a desktop label printer connected to a basic PC. Before use, labels will need to be designed using a dedicated label printing software. Newly designed template would be downloaded from the PC and stored on the memory of the printer. Memory size will dictate the ideal number of labels which can be stored on a printer. Customers needing to print more than one size of label will likely have to purchase multiple printers to save time and manpower continually reconfiguring the printer. Launch of mobile printing As the requirement of printing across all industries continues to advance, the arrival of new light-weight mobile printers connecting to smart devices are quickly replacing traditional desktop printers and PC set-ups. These new mobile devices are being developed to provide scan to print solutions, removing the need for pre-stored data and additional hardware. Providing flexibility and increased productivity, mobile printers can reduce printing costs across all market sectors. With Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity innovation at their core, handheld devices such as PDAs can easily be linked directly to a supply chain network. Communication between the network server and handheld device enables easy information download and storage, enabling easy warehouse product picking or logistics delivery. Progression in printing technology has paved the way for new technologies such as of Near Field Communication (NFC), making it even simpler to pair handheld devices with accompanying printing technology. But what about the media? As the use of labelling continues to diversify, there has been major leaps in the development of label media. While printers are becoming more adaptable, the requirement for dynamic print media for the changes in environment, usage and technology continues to grow. Resulting in a necessity for technology such as specialised linerless label printing. Delivering increased flexibility and an ecological alternative to traditional label media by eliminating the waste bi-product of silicon backing paper originally used in labelling. Linerless label rolls offer double the number of labels per roll. Linerless labelling also aids the possibility of providing clean cut variable label length. As the role of labelling continues to evolve and the importance of Auto-ID continues to rise in improving data entry, tracking and more. The requirement for accurate label referencing is becoming increasingly important across all industries.
