2013-09-24_0936

According to industry research by the Freedonia Group, label demand in the U.S. will reach a projected $19.1 billion by 2017, representing an annual growth of 4.2 percent. With this increased label adoption, many manufacturers are looking for ways to combine operational flexibility with higher quality and output, while simultaneously reducing production costs and use of label materials. To help manufacturers produce vibrant, full color labels, Epson is introducing its new ColorWorks  C3500 Label Printer with Just In Time Color Labeling at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2013.

The ColorWorks C3500 system is designed to meet the needs of manufacturers producing labels for high mix, low volume applications that require multiple label variations. Within the U.S. label market, more than half of all jobs fall under orders of 50,000 or less. By leveraging the new printer’s on demand color labeling technology, 4-color ink capability, and increased print speed and image quality, manufacturers can reduce total labeling costs by up to 50 percent. These savings also come from the ability to eliminate inventory of pre-printed color labels and waste.

Labeling Solutions for Oil Change and Automotive Applications

Posted January 25, 2013

Industry Need

The simple step of applying oil change reminder labels carries real value for the automotive service establishment and the customer. These labels provide a subtle but persistent notice to the customer of the next service date, helping ensure the vehicle remains in optimal condition. They also remind a satisfied customer where they last received service, increasing the likelihood of return business.

While an enclosed automobile may seem like a relatively benign environment, these labels are subjected to significant environmental rigors. High exposure to ultraviolet radiation can attack labels and adhesive, causing adhesives to harden and leave residue, or causing the label to break apart and delaminate rather than removing in one piece. Temperatures inside a parked car in the summer can quickly reach 140°F, effectively baking the label facesheet and adhesive. During winter, windshields repeatedly cycle between freezing temperatures and heated defrost cycles.
