Recently, we have been trying to improve your printing system’s speed and quality. By making our printing solutions much more reliant on automated systems, we have been able to make a real difference to all of our products. In the past, we have spent many hours cutting and finishing labels for our customers, which has left some room for human error.

It remains an essential part of our high-quality service, but we are still on the lookout as to how we can improve our speed and the quality of our finished product. Our increased focus on automation has been essential when it comes to getting our products to our customers as soon as possible. Our self-adhesive labels, as some of our most popular products, have been leading the way to ensure that we deliver the highest quality.

Our Self-Adhesive Labels Laser-Cutter

As we have previously mentioned, we’ve started to use a digital self-adhesive laser-cutter from GM. Within the space of a few months, we increased the speed and capacity of the machine by upgrading the laser from 100W to 250W. Thanks to our modifications, the laser can now run up to 30 metres a minute, without the need for any kind of tooling from our team.

Let The Work Flow, With The Vectoriser!

With the help of both Xeikon and GM, we have spent a great deal of time analysing our workflow. We have been looking for a streamlined and efficient way of managing our system and reducing the risk of any kind of human error.

As a part of this dedication to automating our systems, we began using a program on our X800 (the operating system for Xeikon) called the VECTORISER. This software has enabled us to extract cutter lines from the artwork we receive, and ensure that they arrive directly at the GM laser machine.

For every ‘cutter repeat’ the Xeikon preprints, a QR barcode is printed into the waste area. This is then scanned by the GM laser cutter, which tells the laser what shape needs to be cut out. Thanks to this technology, we can quickly print and cut a full range of self-adhesive labels including irregular shapes and sorts on a single roll of material.

Automated Self-Adhesive Labels Printing And Cutting

At the minute, this technology is still in its infancy. However, by working with the tech specialists at both GM and Xeikon, we are already able to take advantage of great improvements throughout our system. We are able to enjoy the benefits of improved efficiency and speed, and we are dedicated to continuing this improvement.

So, if you’re looking for high-quality, self-adhesive labels which are not only an extremely high-quality, but are also available within an extremely tight time frame, then you need to get in touch with CS Labels today.
