How to choose a label adhesive

Selecting an adhesive for labels seems like it should be as easy as just picking a label, but there are actually a number of factors that should be considered to ensure the correct adhesive for the long term.

So what points should be decided before choosing an adhesive?

  1. Should the labels be permanent or removable?
  2. If permanent, how long are the labels going to need to stay on?
  3. What is the label being adhered to?
  4. Is the label going to be exposed to different physical environments or temperatures?

Tevo chooses TransLution for a scanner-based checking process

Tevo, a South African company specialising in the sourcing, development, marketing and distribution of innovative, high-quality products, has installed TransLution™ Software to assist with a scanner based checking process.

Sales Order Checking is a standard TransLution™ Warehouse Management feature, but Tevo’s requirements were slightly different to the industry norm: the checking needed to be done against customer invoices before goods were shipped. The TransLution setup involves each customer invoice number being entered and scanning the barcode on each item. If the item is not on the invoice, the user is alerted. If the user scans more items than are on the invoice he is also warned. Once the invoice is fully checked, the system automatically prints a barcode label to be attached to the shipment. Items are generally packed into boxes and in order to determine the quantities being checked, TrasnLution uses the SYSPRO pack size rather than having users scan individual items. This also saves the user from having to specify the number of items per box.
