We have seen that barcodes are now used extensively throughout most industry and retail environments and depending on the application that you need the barcode for, will depend which symbology is used. There are seven commonly used symbologies and we will be more than happy to discuss with you the one that is right for your particular requirements. The most common of these are code 128, EAN 8 and 13, and the latest which is QR code.
In the modern world of business and particularly now it is important for companies to value their assets and to curb expenditure, with the use of asset tags. Using asset tags is a simple procedure, and they are also a cost-effective method of identifying, tracking and preserving an organisation’s property.
We are quite used to seeing the familiar bar codes on products which are parallel, adjacent bars and are found on many products. The ones with which we are most familiar with are on the products found in the retail environment, particularly supermarkets.
Barcodes have been used for many decades now and initially were used in transport and warehousing, as well as manufacturing. Today with the rise in technology and computing, barcoding has become an indispensable tool for business operations, used for many purposes including provide immediate and accurate data collection.
The answer would probably be, it all depends upon what the barcode is to be used on and the purpose of the barcode. If it is simply to price a product, then paper labels will usually satisfy most environments, but if it is for asset tagging or for industrial applications, something more robust may be required.
Here at Data Label we readily understand that choosing the label material can play a big role in helping draw customers to your product and for many reasons it is important that the correct label material is used.
Companies have assets, these assets need to be protected and also they have to be tracked to ensure that they are safe, secure and doing the job for which they are intended. A very efficient way to keep your assets intact, secure and prevented from being tampered with is to use tamper evident asset tags.
The pricing and selling of goods has been made much simpler since the introduction of barcode labels just a few decades ago. Generally the barcode is printed onto the product at the time when this is in its final stages and a label is attached, but there are also barcode labels available which can be affixed to any product at any point in the product’s life-cycle.
We understand the importance of running an efficient warehousing operation, and we can put at your disposal our experience of producing and printing warehouse labels. Here at Data Label we can find a solution to any warehouse labelling requirement that you want. We apply stringent quality checks on all our products and we realise the importance of having a warehouse label that will withstand all the rigours of products being moved around on pallets.
The labelling of food items has changed over a number of years now and there are some regulations which are mandatory. In 2011 the EU drew up a set of new requirements which has been designed to bring food and nutritional labelling the same for all member countries.
Health and Safety regulations require that electrical appliances are safe and maintained to prevent harm to workers. This is normally required to be done on a yearly basis to ensure that the item continues to be safe to use.
