Highlights: high temperature labelling and RFID
S+P Samson GmbH at Aluminium 2008
This year's great innovation on the stand are high temperature labels: a new type of plastic material which enables the identification of hot coils or bundles up to 580 °C. The labels can be printed easily using conventional thermal transfer printers - with a direct connection to databases in ERP systems.
S+P GRAPHIPLAST® tags and self-adhesive labels enable the secure and reliable identification of all types of products in the metal industry - from raw materials to finished products. Even in tough everyday conditions, S+P labels enable efficient order tracking, correct picking and movements of goods as well simple and reliable stock control and stock takes.
Modern identification solutions such as RFID also provide benefits for the metal industry. Radio identification has proven to be an ideal solution for areas where automatic capture of material movements is required. The ability to capture several data carriers on one data carrier has the potential to simplify data capture. S+P specialise in applications in metallic environments and will be showing RFID-based applications for warehouse and material flow management.
GRAPHIPLAST® data carriers can be processed on all common printing systems, such as thermal transfer, laser or dot-matrix printers. In addition, S+P Samson GmbH will be showing complete solutions on the basis of existing applications. This includes the ability to print S+P labels directly from SAP/ERP systems which is used successfully by leading companies in the industry such as Alcoa, Trimet Aluminium and Hydro Aluminium.
