With the varying regulations for goods retailed within different regions of the world importers often face the challenge of re or over products. Alternatively the importer will face the high costs of low volume custom artwork supply pricing from their overseas suppliers.
A major video games distributor approached us with the task of applying small labels onto video game covers. That company needed to comply with unique game ratings requirements and barcode requirements. In order to comply there needed to be up to four different labels placed onto their imported products.
Importer Product Labeler Machine Requirements Solved
The label applicators had to apply small labels more consistently than their manual operations and help reduce the labour costs involved, while speeding up the throughput. Labeling machine accuracy was important and ease of machine set-up was paramount.
The proposal given involved a magazine feed operation where video games were loaded into a chute and fed onto a machine conveyor. From there the video games would labelled from the top, the bottom and from the side (along a spine).
As the placement of labels by the labeling machine would involve small labels covering existing sections of the artwork, product control and label feed accuracy were very important.
