A window and door manufacturer was looking for a way to track its vinyl windows throughout the entire manufacturing process. Though the manufacturer had some identification in place, there was no window tracking from process to process. Specifically, the manufacturer needed to track the windows moving in and out of the secondary operations, which included a powder/liquid paint application and high temperature cure of up to 375 degrees F.
“We were looking for cradle to grave tracking of products after our secondary coating applications,” a materials manager for the company said.
The tracking method had to withstand the chemicals and high temperatures that the windows came in contact with during the secondary coating process. A search for durable bar code solutions led the window manufacturer to Camcode and the Polyester Paint Mask Bar Code Label. This label comes with a special paint mask film, which is designed to remove cleanly after the painting process, leaving the bar code label ready to be scanned and tracked.
“The labels are work well and allow us to track each window through our processes,” the materials manager said. “We are able to streamline our manufacturing and inventory practices thanks to the bar code labels.”
