Labels for Next
25 January 2013
Logopak has completed its largest single UK order for its new 400 Series labellers, with 12 machines installed at the Yorkshire distribution centre of clothing retailer Next. The machines join 18 Logopak 515 Series ha
The machines join 18 Logopak 515 Series hanging garment and tote labellers, and replace a manual operation. Now, tote bins used in assembling each order are first identified with barcodes produced centrally with each picking list. As each bin moves to the packing area, the barcode is scanned and, via the warehouse computer, label data sent to the Logopak 410 machines.
Howard Jagger, UK sales manager, says: "Generating labels automatically from pre-validated data avoids risk of human error and saves time. The 410 machines were chosen for their small footprint and for the speed of the new PowerLeap 3 control system."
