Before making an investing in hardware for your company, you should be quite sure you are really buying the tools you need for your processes. In this article we are going to try to provide you with some advice to accomplish this task. First of all, you need to know the basic functionality of label dispensers and why they are so useful in some circumstances. These pieces of hardware work with rolls of labels and provide individual labels to people or other machines, placing them ready to be printed or placed onto products directly. This would depend on the kind of use you need your label dispensers for. Barcode printing companies, for example, will use dispenser to build printing lines in this way: first, the label dispensers will provide the rolls of labels to the printers and will avoid breakouts, after that the barcode printers are going to do the main job which is to print the barcodes in the labels, and finally, the label rewinders will obtain the rolls of labels from the barcode printers and will un-roll them again to be ready to sell or storage. A simple printing line composed of three machines. Of course this is the reality of a barcode printing company. If your company has nothing to do with the printing industry then you should evaluate if you need other hardware apart from the barcode printers. You can have an idea of this by measuring the printing volume and thinking if that volume is large enough to invest in more hardware to handle it. If the printing in your company is done just sporadically, then our advice is to buy only manual label dispensers or maybe don’t buy them at all. There are cases when efficiencies cannot be further improved no matter how much hardware you buy. Label dispensers can greatly help your operations if you evaluate them appropriately.
