NPA Coatings - Case Study
The Situation – GHS Labels
NPA Coatings needed a label printer that would assist them to comply with Global Harmonization System (GHS Labels) requirements. They have almost 100 products, six container sizes, and need to print 80K–100K labels per year. This volume of labels made it easy to cost-justify the investment.
The Afinia Label Solution
After having an in-house demonstration of a competitive printer, they discovered Afinia Label, and chose two Memjet-powered L801’s for their two plants because of their ease of use, and ease of maintenance. They also liked the way the L801’s grey and black case blended-in with the interior design of their office, as opposed to the competitive printer.
Because of the large number of GHS labels produced in short periods of time, they have reduced their label versions to one size. The L801 is digital, so it’s very easy to make changes in label designs. They are now GHS-compliant.
They replaced their thermal printers with the L801, which is up to 20 times faster.
Return on Investment
Savings of approximately 30%, when compared to the cost of maintaining all of their thermal printers. Their ROI justified a budgeted purchase of a third L801 in 2016.
