Properly and accurately marking critical parts and components so they can be traced later to the original supplier is mandatory for most manufacturers of transportation-related products. In fact, permanent etching on critical parts and components is often required – especially in the military equipment, aircraft and many transit manufacturing sectors. However, there are also many applications that simply require an extremely durable label that can withstand harsh conditions that include very cold and very hot temperatures, UV and direct sunlight, abrasion from sand and dirt, water and moisture, and even harsh chemicals.
While preprinted labels durable enough to meet these harsh conditions can be purchased from a handful of commercial print shops or label converters, transportation manufacturers typically produce relatively small volumes of highly specialized equipment – which may not meet even minimum order levels to get to an attractive cost per label. And as can happen with preprinted labels, there’s always the possibility of ordering too many or too few, leading to potential waste and manufacturing delays.
Brother™ offers a range of on-demand marking and labeling solutions for transportation manufacturers that include stencil tape that can be used to permanently mark parts. It also offers extremely durable laminated barcode labels that verify to a grade C or better and remain affixed and scannable even after the label has been subjected to prolonged exposure to harsh conditions.
The PT-9700PC and PT-9800PCN can produce the stencil tape as well as durable laminated labels with serial numbers, barcodes, text, graphics and logos whenever you need them – one, a few, or hundreds at a time The laminated labels feature a unique composition, where your text, barcodes and graphics are printed under the clear protective laminate, so they’ll withstand moisture, abrasion from sand and dirt and rough handling, boiling, freezing, microwaving, harsh UV, industrial cleaners and solvents. Because of this unique laminated construction, your content will still remain clearly readable for years under some of the harshest conditions.
Full-featured label-design software is included to help you create those custom stencils and laminated labels on demand with company logos, serialization, barcodes, time/date stamping and more right from PCs or Macs, and to use data from common database and spreadsheet applications to populate those labels.
Because these systems allow you to quickly make the high-quality, durable labels you need on-demand, and to change label sizes and colors as easily as swapping one interchangeable tape cassette for another, they can be a better alternative to ordering and maintaining costly preprinted labels for your transportation manufacturing operations.
The industrial-grade Brother™ P-touch® PT-9700PC and network-ready PT-9800PCN barcode and laminated label desktop printers include everything you need to get started – printer, label stock and full-featured software – to start producing the high-quality, durable labels you need right away.
Print serial number labels on demand
Apply Brother™ laminated barcode labels for tracking at the start of production. Brother™ labels are made to withstand even harsh conditions from extreme temperatures, UV light, minor abrasion and harsh chemicals.
Save money with short-run rating and nameplates on demand
Metal plates can be very expensive, difficult to manage as inventory and are wasted if anything changes, so consider substituting premier quality laminated labels you produce on demand with the Brother™ PT-9700PC and PT-9800PCN high-resolution laminated label printers. You’ll control exactly what you want on the label, exactly how it will look, and get the flexibility to make as many or as few as you need, whenever you need them.
Machine print calibration labels
Handwriting on small labels is difficult and increases the risk of human errors. Brother™ laminated labels can be printed on-demand directly from many calibration management software applications, using data already recorded in the database.
Print laminated component and part marking barcode labels as small as 6mm wide
For printing the small labels needed for marking many components and parts, the PT-9700PC and PT-9800PCN feature 360dpi print resolution, print fully formed characters down to 3pt type, and produce precise linear and 2D barcodes on a laminated label as small as 6mm wide.
Mark cables and wiring harnesses with labels that stay affixed and clearly readable
Abrasion from motion and vibration, extreme temperatures, and chemicals can make it difficult to reliably mark cables and wiring harnesses with a part number and/or description. The laminated labels from Brother™ not only withstand these challenges, but also have a special adhesive specifically designed to wrap around or flag cables and wiring harnesses and stay adhered under harsh conditions.
Get an easier solution for handling varying terminal strip lengths and numbering connections
With these Brother™ labeling solutions, you can position and print a terminal strip label by just measuring the center to center distance and typing in the ID’s for each terminal location, plus link to a database and automatically trim the length of the label based on the number of columns populated in a particular record.
Produce safety labels that stay on and clearly readable for years
Brother™ labels are not only laminated to protect the “message” from solvents and common industrial cleaners, they are also available in a variety of adhesive types, colors and sizes to meet your needs.
Seal calibrated systems and mark products with tamper-evident labels
An affordable and effective way to seal calibrated systems and mark products to help improve security is to use tamper-evident laminated labels from Brother™. These labels are made with a special face stock which breaks apart and provides a clear visual indicator that the label has been disturbed or removed.
