In the grand scheme of industrial automation products, automated print and apply labeling systems are not as “exciting” as many other products.

Another critical component of uptime is the quality of the human and machine readable information the company and its supply chain partners utilize to increase efficiency and product visibility while reducing costs.

When the information isn’t readable, the application of that information is simply extra cost, which in turn leads to increased costs and reduced efficiency throughout the supply chain.
