Matalco Inc.’s three operations are strategically located in Brampton, ON, Canton, OH, and their state-of-the-art $100 million facility in Lordstown, OH positioned them as the largest remelter in North America.
At their Canton, Ohio, facility, Matalco makes new products and aluminum billets from recycled materials. They are using the Bepop printer to make safety-related labels and PPE diagrams.
In addition, Matalco is making labels for things around the plant to improve visual literacy such as daily production information, safety metrics, and labels for hard hats to show certification information. They plan on expanding their use of the tool to label storage locations to make sure things are put away and improve efficiency.
Before they purchased the MaxUSA Bepop printer, Matalco would have to call a graphics designer, create a PO, have it printed elsewhere, and pick the labels up. According to Emily Seibert, the Environmental Health and Safety Specialist at the Canton facility, “Today if we have an idea, boom, we can do it today. We don’t have to wait a week…we can do it right here.”
Emily stated that the system was pretty easy to use and user-friendly from the start, particularly f you are familiar with Microsoft tools like Powerpoint and Paint.
