A large automotive component manufacturer needed to automate the labeling on two production lines for automotive seats as well as their transfer carts. The customer had previously purchased FOX IV automated print and apply systems for two of their other plant locations.
In this application, the customer needed to encode, print, and apply a thick closed-cell foam RFID tag to metal parts in order to track the parts through work-in-process. Both the application and the environment were challenges.
FOX IV created a complete labeling station to label two different sizes of feed blocks. One block required wrap around labeling and the other a single label on the top of the block.
Case story on a labeling system designed for a customer needing to print and apply labels to a large, tapered feed tub travelling on an automated line.
An international systems integrator contacted FOX IV about providing a made-to-order labeling system to print and apply labels to steel and aluminum elbow pipes. The FOX IV unit would be shipped overseas for integration into a larger tube packing system prior to being installed back in the United States.
