To move inventory to specific cells inside their plant, Korry uses card system with colors. Korry uses colors to signify which specific cell should get the replacement inventory.
According to Sarah Stout of Korry HMI, “the process was print, cut, tape, laminate, repeat” which seems to be an onerous and time-consuming process. Given the complexity of the process, Sarah contacted Denny Agen of DPE Systems (www.dpes.com/) about color label printers. Based on this discussion, Denny sold a TM-C3400 ColorWorks printer to Korry.
According to Sarah, “on the first production, I printed 50 cards; which took a fraction of the time over the previous process.”
By moving to on-demand printing, companies like Korry can improve many different manufacturing processes. Talk to you customers about how on-demand printing could help.
