5 Ways Automatic Tyre Barcode Label Application Can Save Budget

Integrating automatic tyre label application into a new or existing workflow process can be beneficial in several ways. One of the most prominent effects is cost savings. We’ve seen this firsthand through assisting our partners in the tyre industry in introducing tyre barcode label automation into their processes.

Based on our experience, here are 5 ways automatic tyre barcode label application can save budget:


1. Eliminate rework and waste 

Some automated tyre barcode application processes scan and verify each barcode label 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 all labels are utilised and supply accurate information.

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

2. Boost throughput and productivity 

Integrating automatic tyre barcode application allows your company to do more, faster. The sheer amount of tyres which can be labelled in a shift is increased through the utilisation of automation. Most applicators are capable of precisely placing individual labels in under a second—that’s about twice as fast as the average employee and includes improved accuracy!

3. Save on labour and time 

With automation doing the work instead of humans, labour costs are reduced. As highlighted in our last point, most tyre barcode label applicator systems can apply labels at speeds at least double that of manual application! In addition, there is a reduced risk of liability for repetitive strain injuries when employees no longer have to peel and apply labels all day long.

Even more, 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 

Tyre label application automation allows you 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 labelling is just part of the normal process flow. With automated tyre barcode labelling equipment, you are able to handle a wide range of input—as many tyre barcode label applicators can be multi-purposed to assist with all your labelling needs.

5. Increase reliability

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

If you are considering integrating automated tyre label application to your process, consider the 5 benefits listed above. As society is shifting towards automation and Industry 4.0 continues to trend, the consideration of tyre label automation is a great way to future-proof your processes while increasing throughput and productivity in a single investment.
