USES OF HAND LABELLERS


Do you know how much time and money you can save by using hand labellers? These are very practical machines that allow us to easily put different types of labels to different objects. Their most popular use is to put prices to different objects in a retail store so that people know how much they cost and the cashier will know how much to charge you if you want to buy them, but those are not the only uses. You can use hand labellers to put the expiration date of medicines or consumable products that need to be consumed in a period of time since the date they were produced.

Hand labellers can also be used in manufacturing factories where you need to identify production lots. This is useful in case you need to reject a product because some of the ingredients don’t have the quality required. This way you can correctly identify the lot that used the poor ingredient and not reject all your production.

There is a large variety of hand labellers, from different sizes and colours. Different models can also print different number of lines. Most of them can print alphanumeric characters. Other models are designed for heavy duties while others are small and light, used when mobility is needed. Some can print small labels suitable for small items and others can print bigger labels with more information for the customer, and some can even have different fonts.

Hand labellers were invented in the sixties by Yo Sato in Japan. He saw that a supermarket required labelling each item with a price. He developed the world first machine using a thermal transfer label printer. He had his own company that manufactured packing machinery, so he started manufacturing in his company his new invention.
