Auto ID labeling plays an important role across today’s manufacturing supply chain. Thermal transfer labels are used on the factory floor for tagging sourced components when they arrive at the plant, to parts areas where shelves, bin boxes and tool cribs must be labeled to ensure speedy pick operations or for tools and asset management.
During production, barcode label systems identify and track items as they move through a facility or assembly line. And in the warehouse, they are used to mark racks, shelves, bins and to identify finished goods for fast, accurate routing and traceability as they are packaged or shipped for delivery across the supply chain.
Beyond manufacturing and industrial applications, smart labeling solutions with excellent readability and versatility are in demand for omnichannel retail, transportation and warehouse applications, and across a growing variety of commercial and industrial markets.
According to Ravi Panjwani, vice president of marketing and product management, “Brother has been recognized as a global innovator in thermal transfer labeling since pioneering it’s on-demand thermal transfer print and laminating technology over 25 years ago – a technology that sets the standard still today. With the addition of the 4” thermal transfer desktop label printer to the popular TD, PT and P-touch EDGE series of high-performing printers, Brother has a solution that can handle nearly every labeling application needed in industrial environments.”
