CILS Durable Labels Help Safeguard Their Customers' Hose Tracking Programme
Read how we delivered a simple durable labelling solution to one of Europe's best known fluid transfer solutions specialists
Our customer provides fluid transfer solutions, products and services to a wide range of industries across the UK and Europe. They operate a Total Hose Management programme to take the worry out of hose maintenance.
They were experiencing problems with the hydraulic hose labels they were using and needed a more durable solution that wouldn’t fade when exposed to the various environments where their labels are used.
The following challenges applied:
The red print on the labels which is a colour code indicating year of manufacture was fading to an orange colour after a period of time
The fading labels was impacting the effectiveness of their hose management programme
Additionally, their supplier had configured some newly purchased thermal transfer printers to only work on their limited range of labels, so it was crucial that the new labels would successfully print on these printers as well.
Having provided similar durable hose label solutions for hundreds of clients in the Automotive, Plant Hire, Defence, Marine and Offshore and Mining and Quarrying industries we were very familiar with their range of thermal transfer printers. We were very confident that our hose labels would meet the durability needs of their industrial hose identification processes and that they would print on their existing range of printers.
CILS Hose Labels were tested and approved and a simple factory reset on the thermal transfer printers meant that they could print successfully without any printing issues.
