OKI label printer helps Ruwag nail its packaging process
Ruwag prints labels for its range of 4,000 products in-house. Each product requires customised labels with product specific part numbers and information. The company began searching for a flexible label printing solution that could reliably deliver on its requirements. After seeing a demonstration of OKI’s Pro1050 at a trade show, Ruwag engaged with OKI partner NSI Label to supply and install the device as well as provide training to its team.
Since the installation of the OKI printer, label production has significantly improved. It is quicker with fewer rejections, less wastage and a lot less maintenance. Now Ruwag can print everything it needs on five different label formats, requiring less label stock than previously. Ruwag had initially forecasted that it would produce 1.5 million labels per year, but the OKI device has allowed the company to scale this up to 3 million.
