This year’s MODEX show in Atlanta, GA revealed the latest manufacturing and supply chain solutions that maximize operation efficiency while reducing costs.
Solution 1: Improving Production Environments
In order to improve production environment safety conditions and organization, new types of tape are being developed for use in a variety of industrial workplace applications. These strong, multipurpose tapes can mark:
- Supplies and equipment
They can also withstand adhesion and functionality even when exposed to the following workplace conditions:
- Constant UV rays
- Chemical spills
- Other workplace hazards
In addition to improving safety, these new tapes are also easy to install, minimizing downtime.
Solution 2: Bettering Shipping Conditions
A common problem companies face is that cargo often shifts around during shipping and can arrive damaged at its destination. New solutions have been developed in order to prevent freight damage when in transit. One solution in particular entails a one-way, disposable cargo restraint system. This system is:
- Cost effective
- Fast and easy to use
Additionally, this system uses high performance tape adhesives to increase its holding strength and durability. These adhesives also help keep the shipping weight low, improving fuel efficiency and further lowering costs.
Solution 3: Automating Parcel Fulfillment Tasks
Parcel fulfillment tasks are time-consuming and costly when done manually. These items include:
Solutions to address these issues include automating systems that have speeds of up to 5,000 parcels per hour, saving companies time and resources. Certain systems also feature direct thermal printing and linerless label application.
By using linerless labels, these systems also reduce cost, help the environment and increase productivity. For information on how linerless labels can help your company, check out our recent blog.
