The ability to track and correctly identify inventory is key to molders, and new bar code printing software looks to eliminate the potential for human error from this vital step. The software provides automatic or on-demand labels to identify final products and produce exact inventory counts. As labels are printed, the encoded data are electronically transmitted to inventory control systems to instantaneously update records. The software allows a bar code label to be produced every time a user-specified number of parts is produced. The labels can be of any size and decorated with any logo. Important data like job standard, date of manufacture, machine molded on, quantity, material, and other variables
can also be specified on the label.
Part-specific traceability in staging and packing areas is made possible by the labels, which offer real-time part, box, tote, or skid counts. Automation levels can be customized per customer and part requirements. All information is automatically entered into a centralized database where it can be accessed by anyone on the company network. This is beneficial to individuals working in customer service, inventory, or materials management.
