Pad Print Machinery of Vermont has taken the standard hand held barcode scanner and integrated it into their machines, creating a new generation of custom inkjet and pad printers. When the barcode scanner option is installed in the printing system, the risk of improper parameters being loaded when changing from one print job to the next is virtually eliminated. The printer operator simply has to plug in the hand held barcode scanner and scan the barcode on the job ticket to automatically load correct print parameters for that product.
While this option has been popular with our customers in the medical industry due to stringent process validation requirements, many other industries can also benefit from this feature. Barcode-generated job submittal requires much less operator and setup involvement in the configuration of the system for the new print job, thereby reducing the time and effort required while virtually eliminating print job parameter errors. Ultimately this leads to greatly reduced scrap rates and increased profitability and productivity.
