If you’re running a small or medium-sized business, ensuring 100% label inspection may seem overwhelming. However, it doesn’t always need to involve changing your entire label design and print operations.
This video shows you the necessary steps using the LVS-7510 Thermal Printer Label Inspection System from Microscan. The LVS-7510 provides both print quality inspection and barcode verification, integrated into popular industrial thermal transfer printers, such as Zebra xi4 and Printronix T8000 series printers.
Step 1: Design your label
Step 2: Use a handheld barcode verifier to check barcode quality and data structure to relevant application standards.
Step 3: Scan representative labels to import the label design into the LVS-7510.
Step 4: Establish the label inspection criteria in the LVS-7510 software.
Step 5: Push the label inspection template into production.
Step 6: Run a batch of labels and determine inspection results.
Step 7: Make adjustments to the label design, printing system or inspection criteria.
To recap, the benefits of implementing a barcode and print quality verification system in your operations :
- Avoid becoming the news because of product recalls or claims
- Ensure label and barcode legibility
- Ensure compliance to industry standards
- Deny any non-compliant labels entry to the supply chain
