Product Labeling for Traceability of Products

The capacity to follow a product from its conception through production to its final consumer is known as product traceability. In an ideal system, you can track a product in a customer's hands back through the delivery, shipment, manufacturing, and raw material purchasing processes to identify the sources of the original raw material. Product traceability labels are employed to enhance quality and pinpoint the cause of a problem during a recall or other incident. Product identification labels, which often include an identifying number or barcode, are necessary for product traceability. You can identify batches or specific objects using identification labels. Several labeling technologies are available for this purpose.

Laser marking identification can permanently mark parts and components with part numbers, serialization, bar codes, lot codes, or other distinctive markings pertinent to the sector. Several alternative techniques are used to apply Identification Marks to parts. Since the process is quick and permanent, laser marking typically offers several advantages. It also has a cheaper total cost of ownership, doesn't require any additional steps to ensure the marking is durable, and doesn't use consumables, which reduces waste. In addition, since laser marking is a non-contact procedure, there is no chance of mechanically stressing delicate materials or assemblies during the marking process. Other marking procedures leave a surface mark on an object by applying consumable inks, chemicals that must be wiped off, or mechanical stress. Laser marking allows you to work with various materials. Various materials and surface treatments are possible by adjusting the laser system's speed and power. An annual or color change may be used to provide a permanent finish that prevents material surface degradation. This is useful for the food or health industries because laws indicate that there shouldn't be any raised or exposed areas where germs can develop. Engraving is a preferable surface finish option if a surface mark is required quickly. To communicate information, such as a serial number or batch number, engraving will foam or remove the top layer of the material.

Laser-Marked Product Identification Plate

When security is not a key concern, vinyl or polyester labels are frequently used for product identification and are great for tracking products. An industrial label printer is used to create a variety of labels for many different applications.

Watermark Using UV

It is possible to create unique product identification labels with a watermark that can only be seen under UV light, making them difficult to replicate.

Variable Information Labels

Fluctuating information products are identified on labels, which also provide extra data like lot numbers, use-by dates, batch ID codes, manufacture dates, and manufacturing locations. This data can be represented by a combination of text, numbers, and barcodes.

When securely adding handwritten information to a label is required. Embossable Poly Tape is the solution to ensuring that handwritten information is embossed and cannot be modified or erased.

All the label material alternatives mentioned above are frequently used for labeling that requires variable information. Variable information labels can also be traceability labels or brand reputation labels.

Labeling Durable Goods

Product identification labels on durable items, sometimes known as "nameplates," need to be resilient and survive occasionally challenging circumstances. Therefore, product identification labels on durable items are applied using all the above labeling options. Other commonly used alternatives include the following:

Name Plate

Metalized poly tapes are occasionally used for product identification labels because they are simple to create and provide the appearance of brushed metal.

Metalized PolyTapes

Ultra-aggressive Adhesive is the product to use when extra strength is required. The glue on vinyl is absurdly powerful. It adheres to leather, cloth, and other intricate surfaces.

A chemical-resistant tape can be utilized when product identification labels must endure harsh chemical environments, such as equipment susceptible to wash-downs. It is necessary to routinely clean the machinery and equipment used in the food sector and many other industrial applications. Wash-downs may involve abrasion and the application of harsh chemicals.

Electronics and electrical component product identification call for special labeling materials. Circuit board polyimide tape enables supply with high dielectric strength at temperatures ranging from -40°F to 356°F. In addition, because of its capacity to absorb heat, polyimide tape is a perfect choice for electrical component labeling in high-tech production because it offers the endurance needed to withstand thermal and electrical insulation applications.
