Okay, I heard direct heat, heat transfer, polybopp, kimdura, jewelry, kapton, sticky, removable, permanent, tire adhesive, clean room, 3 inch core, 1 inch core, no core and more.
Who will make a positive or negative decision from what they need and decide which barcode labels to use to do what!
It's a crazy world, and bar code labels do have an impact on tracking the world.
Whenever you buy something, look around the store.
There is always a bar code on it.
Enterprises are also using them to track inventory in closed-loop environments.
Heck, I even use them to track my office supplies so I don't run out of precious printer toner or copy paper.
This is a bit too much, so let's really understand the trade of bar code labels.
The most common bar code label, I bet, is the direct hot bar code label.
This is because it is a paper label that is used daily in most UPS shipments for temporary purposes only, so the consumption speed is very high.
Direct hot barcode labels fade over time.
Because the direct hot label will react to the heat, it will fade.
So use this tag only if the image is read for only a few weeks and is not in the element.
The heat transfer barcode label may be the next highest use label.
This is a label that can be a permanent adhesive or removable, printed with a ribbon.
This makes the image more persistent and is used to bar the various products within the distribution range.
Not only do companies use them to mark the products, but they also use these barcode labels to mark the location of the shelves in the warehouse.
One of the best uses we see is to print the barcode labels and put them on the magnetic strip.
The magnetic stripe is then placed on the shelf of the warehouse, so if the warehouse is reconfigured, don't mess up the label, just move the magnet.
Now either of these labels can be made from paper, polyester, polystyrene, Poly-bopp, kimdura and many other materials.
The material all depends on how much you want to spend and what the app will be.
If you need to indicate weather resistance in the barcode label, then any of the above synthetic materials can work.
They have different durable parts.
Polybopp or Kymdura may be the cheapest in synthetic materials.
What Kymdura needs to remember is that unlike polyester, it will tear apart.
There are still a lot of materials like Kapton (
Very popular app
Up to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit), Valeron (
For the automotive industry)and many more.
Adhesive is the next mysterious field of bar code labels.
Permanent adhesives are available for most applications.
There are exceptions in cases where removable adhesive is required.
Now we need to remember that no adhesive is completely removable if used for a long time on the product.
After years of application, the removable adhesive will become permanent.
There are also some ultra-removable adhesives with little residue.
My favorite is the tire adhesive.
This is a sticky thick adhesive for bar code labels on tires or rubber.
The warning here is that they may have some glue for your thermal transfer printer.
All of the above bar code label materials and adhesives can be used to make clean room bar code labels.
For clean room applications, bar code labels need loose fibers and contaminants that are not likely to infect clean rooms.
This is done in a controlled environment, and then the packaging is locked and sealed by air in order to be shipped to the clean room.
This is indeed a special application that shows the diversity of bar code labels on the market.
Finally, let's look at the relationship between the "core" and the code sign?
Well, some barcode printers need to have a 1 inch core in the center of the barcode label roll to work in the printer.
Other bar code printers need to have a cardboard core of 3 inch in the center of the label winding.
Other printers can actually not use cores or fans-
Fold bar code labels.
We even saw a 5 inch core app.
This is crazy!
In any case, the core is how the barcode label is done and used in the appropriate printer.
Most bar code labels in any form or material listed are blank for users to print on them using their device.
Most of the time, customers do not want to print their own barcode labels, nor do they want to print labels in advance.
If the bar code specification is very complex, pre-printed bar code labels are common.
Users rely on barcode labels experts to pre-print these barcode labels and send them as pre-printed barcode labels.
For any application, they can be packaged and manufactured with any of the above materials.
Well, this information is really helpful when you're trying to make the right barcode tag decision for your business.
So install the right material into the right app and your barcode label works just like a charm.
