5 Ways Automatic Tire Label Application Can Save Budget

Integrating automatic tire label application into a new or existing workflow process can be beneficial in several ways. One of the most prominent effects is cost savings; here are 5 ways that automatic tire label application can save budget:

1. Eliminate rework and waste 

With automated tire barcode application processes, each barcode label is scanned and verified prior to application, accounting for every label at the end of a job or process. As a result, waste and rework are virtually eliminated, guaranteeing that all labels are utilized and supply accurate information.

Automatic tire label application also eliminates waste through increased placement precision. With tight label placement tolerance, guaranteed reliable barcode placement, and ease of automatic scanning, tire label applicators allow for virtually uninterrupted workflow processes.

2. Boost throughput and productivity 

Integrating automatic tire label application allows your company to do more, faster. The sheer amount of assets that can be labeled in a shift is increased through the utilization of automation. In addition, implementing tire label automation is a future proofed strategy as it can run around the clock—even when nobody is there—so productivity is always consistent.

3. Saves on labor and time 

With automation doing the work instead of humans, labor costs are reduced. Most tire label applicator systems can apply labels at speeds at least double that of manual application. Also, there is reduced risk of liability for repetitive strain injuries when humans don’t have to peel and apply labels all day long.

In addition, productivity is boosted as bottlenecks are reduced and labels or components are precisely placed quickly and efficiently every time. Delivery dates are more likely to be on time, and mishaps are far less likely.

4. Gain the complete solution with one investment 

Tire label applicator automation gives you the option to gain a complete solution with one investment. It can be integrated into existing workflows and communicate with infrastructure to create a closed loop system in which labeling is just part of the normal process flow. With automated tire labeling equipment, you are able to handle a wide range of input, as many tire label applicators can be multi-purposed to assist with all your labeling needs.

5. Increased reliability

With automation comes increased uptime as human labor does not guarantee consistency. In addition, label application will also be more consistent as the tire label applicators place with precision.

If you are considering integrating automated tire label application to your process, consider the 5 benefits listed above. As society is moving more towards automation and the shift to Industry 4.0 continues to trend, the consideration of tire label automation is a great way to future-proof your processes while increasing throughput and productivity with just one investment.
