Labeling of small load carriers (slc)

The small load carriers (slc) often serve the intralogistics in middle and big companies and will be mostly moved by half- and fully automated transportation systems. The labeling of small load carriers takes place temporarily or permanently depending on the application.

A temporary labeling can be made with help of the so-called Kanban-cards, which will be interchangeably inserted at the side of the small load carriers. These cards don’t have any adhesives and can be delivered as rolled goods with perforations for the flexible subsequent inscription with thermal transfer printing at the site.

A further temporary solution is a kind of landing spot system. Here a label with a special surface grafting will be adhered permanently and enduring on the landing spot of the small load carrier. The temporary labeling happens with labels, which will be adhered to the landing spot label and due to the surface character of the label beneath can be removed without any problems.

A permanent labeling happens by a special slc label, which is equipped with a very strong adhesive and withstands even rough requirements as well as washing cycles in industrial slc cleaning facilities. The small load carriers are standardized in their size and will be mostly applied in the logistics of manufacturing technological branches. They provide information about the content and serve e.g. the identification in corporate equipping warehouses by encodings.

All products are available with data matrix codes, QR codes, barcodes, consecutive numeration, and perforations. The slc labels will be manufactured from robust materials and the imprint is resistant against abrasion, dirt and weather conditions.

The main features of slc labels

  • Suitable thickness of material so that stability and an easy insertion are warranted
  • Landing spot systems fitting for all common slc formats available
  • Very high adhesive power of the permanent slc labels also on difficult substrates
  • Variable data also in very big and very small realization possible
  • Different materials depending on the application are at choice
  • Rolled goods can be equipped with different perforations
  • Optimization of the processes due to the automation of material- and goods flow
  • Plain labels in individual formats and special forms
  • High resistance during industrial washing cycles and in the area of chemicals and solvents
  • High abrasion resistance with suitable thermal transfer ribbons for the thermal transfer printing

Functions and advantages – precisely tailored to your requirements for the labeling

The small load carriers are containers of the industrial exchange systems and they are reusable. Thus the slc labels shall not be permanently adhered, but inserted in the specially designated holders, which are located on the outside. If a recurring intern procedures shall be controlled, a permanent slc labeling can be considered. An alternative solution are the so-called landing spot systems, which on their part consist of two parts. A permanently adhered basic label and a slc label which lands on it, which can be peeled off without residue.

Our options for the labeling of small load carriers offer the best possible flexibility and will be adjusted individually to the customer’s requirements. This happens by using suitable special materials of leading manufacturers, individual die-cutting forms and premium adhesives.

The labels can be inscribed directly as required in variable amounts with current data at the site, by that the storage and the management of numerous labels may be reduced or dropped.

Our upscale and accurate processing with most modern die-cutting technologies guarantees the highest precision and reliability for the label application.
