Print and Apply Systems for Manufacturing, Shipping and Warehousing

Reduce Labor, Errors, and Eliminate Bottlenecks

Print and Apply Labeling is an excellent way to reduce labor, errors, and eliminate bottlenecks; the printer doesn‘t get sick or take breaks. The labeler can be inserted where you need it: managing inventory, shipping, warehousing, or even to track work-in-process.

The system can be used for both barcode applications as well as RFID. In some applications, the next label in queue provides serial identification as well as simple item identification. In other applications, more detailed information can be pulled from a database using a PC and written to the tags. Once applied, that information is married to the item and can be retrieved for item identification or process status checks throughout the facility. Employees can use handheld readers or the items can be tracked and identified automatically with the strategic placement of stationary antennas.

Northern Apex, as a complete system integrator, can supply the off-the-shelf or design and build the custom hardware and software needed for your specific application: handheld readers, stationary or mobile antennas, tags, software and more.
