In an increasingly on-demand world, label converters are finding new ways to make short length label rolls quickly and efficiently. Traditional manufacturing technology has not proven to be cost-effective for this product due to slow cycle speeds and manual labor intervention. Noting increased customer interest in short length label rolls for mobile printers and retail applications, DLS has invested in this growing trend. Their acquisition of six auto-loading, quick cycle turret rewinders will contribute significantly in their effort to provide businesses with short length label rolls at a reasonable cost and with fast turnaround times.
“The use of technology to continuously improve our productivity is a key differentiator for DLS in the market,” stated Jim Kersten, Diversified’s CEO. “We have invested heavily in equipment to increase the speed, quality and consistency of our products without the need for additional personnel which, after materials, represents our second largest cost of manufacturing. This savings enables our distributors to provide lower cost options to their end-user customers,” continued Kersten. “Our new, highly automated turrets are proving to fit this model perfectly.”
