This includes supporting the automotive industry with high-performance labeling machines that can be used in a variety of applications. No matter what your requirements are, we can make sure you are equipped with the right labeling machinery to support your business.
Pressure-sensitive labels are so versatile and effective that they represent around 80% of the total label market. One of the main advantages is that they can easily be applied to practically any type of packaging. There is no need to deal with heat or solvents to achieve reliable and long-lasting adhesion. With the right layers of materials and pressure, flexible and durable labels can be applied to metal, plastic, paper, and any other materials
An automotive or industrial pressure sensitive material consists of four layers: release liner, adhesive, facestock, and top coat. Each of the layers can be totally customized to provide the right color, gloss, texture, strength, and adhesion. You can even choose whether your label is designed to be permanent or temporary.
Depending on the materials and application environments, silicon, rubber, or acrylic adhesives may be used to create a strong bond. We will also look at whether your automotive product will be exposed to extreme temperatures, moisture, or other conditions that would affect adhesion. With that information, you can find the right products and equipment that will provide you with a professional-looking final product.
The automotive sector is competitive and it can be difficult to stand out. A well-designed and eye-catching label can help make sure that you are making a great first impression. Providing a compelling visual story that highlights your brand and provides essential product information will allow you to convert sales. Customers will recognize your appealing label and be drawn to your product.
Whether you are a small business or an enterprise-level company that ships all over the world, a labeling machine is an essential part of daily operations. Time is a precious commodity for any business and an automotive labeling machine can provide an automated or semi-automated solution that reduces costs and labor. You can achieve a polished and professional look for your products in less time.
Another benefit of labeling machines for the automotive sector is that they are capable of handling any product container. Automotive products often include fluids that are stored in rounded containers that make storage and pouring easier. This type of convex surface can present some challenges, but not for labeling machines. From tubes and cylinders to rectangles, automatic labeling machines are capable of handling any size or shape product. You can feel confident that there is a solution to help with your labeling needs.
The automotive industry also requires a variety of safety and warning labels. These need to meet certain compliance standards that regulate everything from the size and shape of the label to the text height. Safety labels convey vital information which also requires clear images along with concise language. Your label maker should be able to consistently create and print labels that are specific to product application, surface type and label environment.
There are also other logistical considerations to take into account. When you outsource your label making, you introduce the potential for supply chain issues to affect your business. You also lose out on the opportunity for on-demand label making and printing. Think about the volume of printing you require and how those needs may change over time. This will help you find a cost-effective and adaptable automotive label maker.
Automotive label printers allow you to easily input essential information and produce a customized label. This is perfect for automotive environments where different barcodes and other identifying information needs to be supplied for each component or vehicle. Label printers tend to be more compact and mobile for a dynamic and demanding work environment.
