Cable harness manufacturers invest hours of skilled manual labour to provide compact cable harnesses customers can
assemble in larger machines, vehicles and electronics. Labour, resources and time are managed very carefully to remain
competitive. The cable harness labelling process is no exception.
Challenge: An efficient, flexible cable harness labelling solution
A cable harness manufacturer faced inefficiencies and frustration linked to their labelling process. Labels and sleeves were not
always printed right, printing was slow, and changing label materials was avoided as much as possible to prevent additional
waste and time loss. The company clearly needed a more efficient and flexible label and sleeve printing solution to identify
terminals, connector housings, cables and wires in a range of thicknesses, in-line with varying specifications from customers in
