How Often Should a Labeling System be Evaluated?


Comments (0) November 14, 2017 /

Unless there is an obvious problem, we don’t tend to evaluate our systems and processes. If everything is running smoothly, why take the time out to evaluate each moving part? In our new case study, we’ll tell you all about a client who had not evaluated their systems on a consistent basis and was losing out on product output. They were running at 40% production.

It’s advised to have your labeling system reviewed for efficiency at least every 12 months. You could stretch it to 18 months, but we do not recommend you go longer than that without knowing how efficient your production systems are. You could lose a lot of money by not verifying the speed and optimal output capabilities.

At Inspec, we are happy to provide a free review and consultation. If your machines are running great, we’ll let you know! If the need improvements, we can recommend an amazing array of options to ensure your systems are maximizing productivity.

Why Do I Need Consistent Evaluations?

If you’ve recently gone through software or system upgrades, your production may be affected. Depending on the kind of materials or packaging you’re using, the systems may need to be reviewed to determine if they’re the best one to ensure fast and smooth output.

Everyone wants to save money but sometimes using cheaper materials can cost you in the long run. It’s important that the materials you’re using for labels and packaging are the right fit for your labeling systems.

Also, printhead changes can slow production. If your systems require the printhead to directly touch the labeling material, there can be friction which causes wear and tear on the printheads. If you’re not changing them often enough, you may be significantly impacting production output.

You may also want to determine if there has been any downtime with the machines or systems. If an issue occurred that required quick repair, was it done right? Do you have the best materials and the right machines? If you’re experiencing downtime more often than you have in the past, get an evaluation of your current processes. Let us help you determine the exact problem and how you can fix it.

Who Can Evaluate My Systems/Processes?

At Inspec, we have educated, trained, and efficient staff members who can review your processes, machines and materials, and provide you with recommendations to maximize your production.

We provide free consultations to our existing customers and prospective customers. Let us show you what we can do before you make a decision to work with us. We will check out your system, give you feedback on improvements, and then you can decide if a partnership is in your best interest.

We make the process simple. We know you’re busy and your time is valuable so we ensure an easy, painless process and promise to provide excellent service and helpful information.

What Happens if I Don’t Have The Process Checked?

If you don’t have your processes reviewed on an annual basis, the bottom line is, you could be losing money. In our case study we’ll tell you all about a client who had not reviewed their labeling system and it caused a 40% reduction in production output. That’s a massive decrease to their product lines.

It’s better to get the process reviewed that to run for years on reduced output. We want to make sure you’re using the right machines, the right materials and the right systems to maximize production.

Set up a consultation with us for free and we’ll let you know if there is anything you need to do to increase or improve your current systems. And if there isn’t, we’ll congratulate you on a job well done!
