COMPARING LABEL UNWINDERS
Whether you are buying new label unwinders or replacing older models, you need to take the time to compare them to products currently on the market. This is especially true if you are replacing an older model people tend to become stuck in their ways and want to simply upgrade from the model they have instead of looking at all of the models that are currently on the market.
Make sure you don't make a decision based solely upon price because you will not be making a justified decision. You must look at the features the speed (for power unwinders), and how it will improve the speed of your operation. You have to look at all angles and choose the product that can best meet your company's needs even if it isn't the cheapest one in the supply catalogue.
Many purchasing agents err greatly when choosing products for the areas they service. They will look at a requisition and rather than consider the purpose of the product, they will order the cheapest model for the product line without consulting with the supervisor of the area to determine whether that model will satisfy their needs. When you take that approach, it often means returning the product to the supplier for the one the area needs to perform their jobs efficiently.
Before choosing a label unwinder, take the time to consult with those who need to order it to determine their needs. Consult with the supplier to see what their recommendations are based upon the needs of your company. Conduct some Internet research to discover the different models and what they can do and how they can help your operation. Only after you have conducted the research should you choose the label unwinders for the needs of the users in your company.
