Fundamentals of Labeling
by Laurie Barcaskey
Labeling allows identification to be applied and maintains component integrity with no deformation to the surface.
Optional adhesives allow the labels to be used in various environments and offer tamper-evident options for security. While there are cost savings in some instances to have labels pre-printed and ready for on-demand application, at other times there is a distinct benefit to printing labels on-demand where label design is done in-house for quick edit corrections or job-specific requirements.
In house printing provides flexibility for label details and printing/applying in individual work cells. Volume printing can be maximized through stocking materials for just-in-time printing.
