As the world ushers in a new age of automation, is your business ready to do the same?
Whether your business is partially or fully automated, or just beginning to explore automated possibilities, just know you are part of a bigger movement that embraces the idea using technology to do things better, faster and more efficiently than ever before.
Since identifying and tracking everything from inventory, wires, lab samples, and everything in between, is key to improving both quality and efficiency, it’s no surprise automated labeling is a must-have. In particular, automated labeling has the potential to:
Manage volume fluctuations
Reduce labor-intensive processes
Improve quality and compliance capabilities
It’s probably not a question of if you’ll ever automate your labeling process, but when. And when you’re ready, Brady can help. As an industry leader in high-performance identification products, featuring in-house R&D to work directly with end-users, it should come as no surprise that Brady also specializes in labeling solutions to automate traceability and reduce error. Whether looking for an automated solution in your manufacturing facility, data center or laboratory, Brady has the solution for you.

Free up your flagging time with the BradyPrinter A5500 Flag Printer Applicator
Just because wire diameters are decreasing, that doesn’t mean the data needed to identify them decreases too. Adding a flag gives you the room for the data you need, but can also increase your identification time.
Consistent application – labels are applied evenly without wrinkles, skew or edge mismatch to reduce rework
Connectivity options – get your data to your machine in a variety of ways, including Wi-Fi
Reduce waste – print and apply serialized labels as you go without having to go back and reprint a full batch if an error occurs
Learn how the BradyPrinter A5500 can reduce errors and increase overall efficiency in your current process with a virtual demo.
