    The acronym SOHO refers to a small office home office business. SOHO businesses are typically considered to only have one to ten employees and are based in small office spaces or homes. The term SOHO has helped to differentiate traditional work environments such as offices and stores from operations run out of people’s homes. The SOHO approach to business provides owners and entrepreneurs a variety of benefits however, it’s crucial not to sacrifice the quality of your printer because the office setting may be at home.

    BIXOLON Auto-ID Overview

    July 20, 2021

    Enhancing Data Capture with BIXOLON Auto-ID Labelling Solutions Automated Identification (or more commonly known as Auto-ID) is the expression used to describe automatic data capture using a number of different techniques. The capture of data is done through a number of technology methods which are automatically logged onto a computer system without human involvement. Barcodes, QR codes and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) are the most commonly used as a means of encoding and storing information which can be scanned and logged. These approaches have become essential in many work processes from warehouse inventory management, logistics tracking to healthcare patient support. Printed labels are the easiest way to quickly produce high quality encoding content. Direct thermal and thermal transfer are the most common printing methods with additional RFID coding technology quickly becoming the norm. With a library of media options available from traditional silicon linered labels to more eco-friendly linerless media labelling options, businesses now have the option to personalise their complete AUTO-ID printing and data capture process.

    BIXOLON’s Stand-Alone Labelling Solutions

    January 6, 2020

    We read in the press about the need for AI, IoT, Big Data, 5G and Blockchain, so are we overengineering solutions? Is there still the need for more traditional Auto-ID solutions? The answer is very much YES for solutions that are less complex and more cost-effective. A stand-alone operation releases your printer from the ties of an operating infrastructure, allowing for the format retrieval, data entry and media output to be located at the point of application or material production. This on-site solution reduces costs, needless user walk time and errors by ensuring that the correct information is created and applied at the point-of-manufacture or assembly. So, let’s explore some additional points. A stand-alone solution is safer.• Customer or item specific information with sensitive data is retained in the operator’s work area. It is not open to loss, mis-labelling or misuse.• Devices that are not tethered to a businesses’ infrastructure are not open to data breaches. A stand-alone solution is cheaper.• A host device; laptop, PC, handheld or tablet device, is not required.• No additional software, licenses or updates are required, which if not kept up-to-date can put you in breach of data protection legislation. A stand-alone solution is greener.• No requirement to power host devices; laptop, PC or tablet.• No need to manage host devices’ disposal or recycling at the end of use. A stand-alone solution is easier.• The application’s format with associated fonts and graphic data can be stored in the printer’s memory, or in an intelligent keypad such as those offered by our partners.• The printer’s USB host capabilities can handle additional peripheral devices such as scanners, scales, keypads or card readers to receive variable data to correctly retrieve the right label design and automatically apply the data to be printed.• The output of your libraries of formats and database of items can be simplified to the press of button or scan of a barcode.• Legacy systems with no previous barcoding can be easily implemented. BIXOLON’s multi-language printers can understand and process our own SLCS command code, plus leading printer languages, so migration from a tethered solution to a most effective and simpler BIXOLON stand-alone solution is possible.

    Energy Efficiency Labelling Regulations

    July 1, 2019

    The European Commission has recently adopted new formats of Energy Efficiency Labelling for several product groups. As part of the European Union’s energy saving objectives and to provide clearer, simpler information to consumers, the new formats will provide a QR code link that consumers can scan to obtain additional product information. This official, non-commercial information will be entered by manufacturers into the associated European Product Database for Energy Labelling (EPREL), which will become available for consumers to view through the latter months of 2019. As of January 2019, manufacturers, importers and authorised representatives of certain appliances need to register their goods and provide the additional consumer information before selling them on the European market. Some legacy goods will also need to have their energy labelling amended and additional information added to the EPREL database if placed on the market from the 1st August 2017 and the 31st December 2018. Now whilst the EPREL database is an EU managed initiative there are obvious implications for goods manufactured outside of the EU where the EU is the intended recipient region of sale. It is fortunate then that BIXOLON has a global sales and support team, plus a network of UNITE partners that can meet all your printing needs. For your label creation and generation needs, then BIXOLON offer a free of charge Label Artist™ application.BIXOLON’s broad range of energy saving Mobile, Desktop and Industrial printers support all industry types of barcode symbologies, including the QR code, plus UHF RFID print-encoding.The range of easy to use portable and fixed printers ensure quality output label after label on a choice of print resolutions - 203, 300 and 600 dpi.

    Development in Label Printing

    January 29, 2018

    Since the introduction just-in-time delivery, asset management and enterprise productivity label printing technology has played a key role in product identification to allow easy asset documentation and tracking. As there is increased pressure to improve the collection or data, many companies are moving away from traditional pen-and-paper processes and investing in technology to increase efficiency. While the demand continues to rise, the development for technology, particularly around areas of label printing continues to intensify. Used as one of the most basic forms of product tracking, product labelling has improved the efficiency throughout the complete supply chain. Using tracking data such as Picket Fence or Ladder barcodes to store simple numbers to innovations such as 2D or QR code labelling to hold part numbers and important product data. Standardising label printing Originally the production of labels today will come from a desktop label printer connected to a basic PC. Before use, labels will need to be designed using a dedicated label printing software. Newly designed template would be downloaded from the PC and stored on the memory of the printer. Memory size will dictate the ideal number of labels which can be stored on a printer. Customers needing to print more than one size of label will likely have to purchase multiple printers to save time and manpower continually reconfiguring the printer. Launch of mobile printing As the requirement of printing across all industries continues to advance, the arrival of new light-weight mobile printers connecting to smart devices are quickly replacing traditional desktop printers and PC set-ups. These new mobile devices are being developed to provide scan to print solutions, removing the need for pre-stored data and additional hardware. Providing flexibility and increased productivity, mobile printers can reduce printing costs across all market sectors. With Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity innovation at their core, handheld devices such as PDAs can easily be linked directly to a supply chain network. Communication between the network server and handheld device enables easy information download and storage, enabling easy warehouse product picking or logistics delivery. Progression in printing technology has paved the way for new technologies such as of Near Field Communication (NFC), making it even simpler to pair handheld devices with accompanying printing technology. But what about the media? As the use of labelling continues to diversify, there has been major leaps in the development of label media. While printers are becoming more adaptable, the requirement for dynamic print media for the changes in environment, usage and technology continues to grow. Resulting in a necessity for technology such as specialised linerless label printing. Delivering increased flexibility and an ecological alternative to traditional label media by eliminating the waste bi-product of silicon backing paper originally used in labelling. Linerless label rolls offer double the number of labels per roll. Linerless labelling also aids the possibility of providing clean cut variable label length. As the role of labelling continues to evolve and the importance of Auto-ID continues to rise in improving data entry, tracking and more. The requirement for accurate label referencing is becoming increasingly important across all industries.
