Print on Demand Work In Process Labels on the production floor without a PC or mobile computer
We recently designed a system for a client that had a need to replace handwritten sub assembly numbers. The process was prone to errors and tracing was unreliable setting the stage for potential lawsuits and recalls.
Huzzard Scan and Print™ to the rescue.
Our system involves six components:
1. Bluetooth Scanner
2. Bluetooth Printer
3. Barcode from Engineering drawing or Work Order
4. Thermal transfer labels
5. Thermal transfer ribbons
Our client was especially excited to not have to rely on a PC or mobile computer to replicate the sub assembly number from the engineering drawing or work order. Instead, when a sub assembly is ready to be marked with a barcode label, the client simply:
- Scans the barcoded part number on the engineering drawing or work order.
- And presto, a barcode label with a very readable barcode and human readable number is generated and presented from the printer with no PC or mobile computer.
- The employee removes the label from the printer and applies to the sub assembly.
