Product marking by passion

Product marking

Products need labeling

In the automotive sector, labeling ensures that components to the smallest screw  are traceable. In logistics, labeling guarantees scheduled delivery. On electrical devices, typeplates refer to performance data and use. The pharmaceutical industry sees labeling prevent from errors relevant to health. In chemistry, labeling points out to risks associated with the handling of the products – multi-colored and without any barriers as regards  language. On food, labeling informs about ingredients and on textiles about its best possible care.
