Logistics is one of the most competitive markets in the modern business world. In order to stay ahead of the competition, technology must be put in place to efficiently pack anything from vans, to tractor trailers. This requires minimizing the cost per square foot, and the cube per square foot. Dimensioning systems will figure out how to maximize your packaging space by inputting various information and creating an algorithm for packaging within the cube. An imaging system will scan the box and instantly know the position and orientation of the box for packaging.
Fixed Station Label Printers
Our lines are designed for the fixed and mobile printing in the AIDC marketplace.
The typical offering for label and tag generation is Thermal transfer or direct
Our product lines include:
-Thermal transfer and direct thermal label
and tag printers
-Windows based label creation software
-Pre-printed, stock and custom labels and tags
-Printer integration to existing in-house operating systems
-Print and apply applicators for automated labeling
-Printer parts and accessories
These units are designed for mobile data collection and can range in IP standards, keyboard type, optics type, emulation, batch & wireless, etc. There is a unit that matches every mobile need you might have, ranging from forestry to freezer warehouses. Although CE, windows mobile, and windows embedded have been discontinued, the operating system of choice is now Android or a full Microsoft OS.
This equipment has gained popularity in a variety of different business such as warehousing, rental car processing, meter maids and field service. WIFI, Bluetooth and standard tethered units are common throughout the product line. Enhanced features such as touch screen, internal programming and remote monitoring have become popular in the last couple years. The downside is that most offerings are direct thermal only but using the correct media could remedy and shortcomings.
Print Apply Applicators
Primarily used in conveyor environments with technology requires two prices; the print engine and the applicator. Applicators are available in stock and custom configurations, while print engines generally are developed as an off-the-shelf item with varying speeds, dot densities and capabilities. If developed and spec'd properly it will eliminate manual intervention of label application and placement. Placement standards are within 1/16”. There are dozens of variables that must be considered when specifying a unit for particular application. Among them; label size, conveyor speed, print density and label application specifications. This product usually requires a site survey to assure all variables align with your goals and objectives.
Primarily for the food industry, there are a variety of scales that can weigh down to as little as 1 gram.
We not only can supply the scale but install and maintain it over the scale’s lifecycle.
Signs today can take many different forms based on the application. The trend in retail is to use digital signage (equivalent to HDTV) to promote various means of advertising. This can range from very large displays the size of a kiosk, to extremely small displays the size of a postage stamp. There are now even digital unit price labels that can changed remotely instead of printing labels. Although technology is out ahead of the sign business there are still plenty of companies using traditional signs, shelf talkers, and displays. The difference today is that these are produced on digital presses and color laser printers, so even very low quantities are cost effective. Whatever your need TSG as the solution.
Vehicle Mount Terminals
These units are designed to be mounted on forklifts, man-ups, or various pieces of mobile equipment. Being that picking and put away applications are primarily pallet driven when working with forklifts, most transactions can be processed and scanned while the user is sitting. This, in conjunction with long range scanning creates efficiencies throughout the entire process.
There are a variety of data collection technologies but there are few that are ideal for certain applications. Hand free picking and putaway with high velocity products is ideal for voice recognition technology. This technology can be resident to a unit on your belt, interfaced to a headset, or client based interfaced to a portable terminal. Either way, sophisticated recognition technology allows transaction processing which is 3 to 5X faster than traditional workflow operations.
Wearable Scanners and Terminals
These units cater to applications where piecework and hands-free applications create efficiencies. These units can be positioned on your forearms or the back of your wrist. Optics vary from short range to long range, and are typically positioned on your index finger. Touch screen with an integrated keyboard is common.
