“We are extremely satisfied with the performance and reliability of the Printronix printers, with regard to their capacity to print complex bar codes perfectly.” - H. Winkler , Systems Administrator
At the completion of each production cycle, pastries and semi-finished products are packed in boxes, which vary by producer, and labeled with relevant product information including sell-by date, origin and use. Pauly Biskuit was using a labeling solution that involved storing label information for each individual product and producer on font cards, and then manually entering that information into the printer in correspondence with production cycles. With three to four million labels being processed each year, this manually driven process had become increasingly time consuming, especially with printers breaking down frequently.
With faulty printers interrupting production, the company went in search of a new printing and labeling solution with the purpose of reducing cost of doing business by further automating their complex labeling process. Pauly Biskuit initially installed 12 Printronix T5204r wireless LAN printers. The Printronix printing system is easy to use, is compatible with the company’s existing hardware and software, and can quickly print out all common bar code standards, and numerous other codes including EAN 13, EAN 128, EAN 8 and ITF.
Using Printronix PrintNet Enterprise printer management software, the company eliminated the need to manually staff each printer, and can now reliably control all print processes through its internal wireless network, which has significantly reduced wait time and system downtime, all with easy integration.
