Can your printer keep up
with the speed of business?
Beijing Benz-Daimler Chrysler Automotive Co., Ltd
Founded in August 2005, Beijing Benz-Daimler Chrysler Automotive Co., Ltd (“BBDC”) is the first whole vehicle joint venture in China’s auto industry.
“The industrial barcode printers from Printronix Auto ID are easily adapted to our continuous assembly line and can be quickly connected to our systems, making it even more convenient. We are very satisfied with Printronix barcode printers.” – Mr. Niu, Director of Equipment Management Department
A complex process – BBDC uses PLUS production management system for its assembly line to automatically create a Code 128A barcode for each new car. The Code 128A barcode includes 16 numbers that constitute a specific ID number for a specific car, and includes information such as production date, model number and specifications. The real-time and accurate printing of the barcode has a direct effect on the speed of the assembly line. It is critical that there is a seamless connection from the printing device to the MIS system, which is the exact duplication of the one at the Benz head office.
Because Printronix Auto ID printers can be seamlessly connected to PLUS and SAP systems, BBDC chose to use Printronix exclusively. Currently, a Printronix thermal barcode printer is connected to the PLUS system on BBDC’s assembly line. The printer clearly and quickly prints the ID number of each new car on a 4 x 2-inch label in real-time. Immediately after printing, the label is applied by an operator to the front of the body frame.
Recognized for its high quality printers and excellent service of its agents, Printronix was selected as the printer provider for all of Beijing Benz-Daimler Chrysler Automotive’s needs. Printronix has provided printers for Beijing Jeep for years, and also offers regular service for Benz in Europe.
