NPACI needed a label printer that would assist them to comply with Global Harmonization System (GHS) requirements. They have almost 100 products, six container sizes, and need to print 80K–100K labels per year.
The Memjet-Powered Solution
They chose two Memjet-powered L801’s for their two plants because of their ease of use, and ease of maintenance.
Because of the large number of labels produced in short periods of time, they have reduced their label versions to one size. The L801 is digital, so it’s very easy to make changes in label designs. They are now GHS-compliant.
They replaced their thermal printers with the
L801 Colour Label Printer, which is up to 20 times faster.
Return on Investment
Savings of approximately 30%, when compared to the cost of maintaining all of their thermal printers. Their ROI justified a budgeted purchase of a third L801 in 2016.
Long waits for thermal printers to produce non-GHS-compliant labels.
Compliant labels are ready in just minutes.
Were not GHS compliant.
Are now GHS compliant.
Had multiple sizes of labels, which slowed production due to having to wait for label stock to be changed.
The 216mm width allowed them to standardize on one label size for all containers.
Had to pay for changing print heads plus preventative maintenance, however slight the change.
They can do all of their own preventative maintenance.
