Flexibility In a Custom Labeling System Increases Productivity & ROI

In the turbulent world of manufacturing and labeling solutions, you never know what’s waiting on the other end of the line. But, if you’re set up for success and prepare accordingly with proper planning, your custom labeling system should never be a headache. 

Modularity is an excellent way to alleviate stress and increase flexibility with custom labeling needs and provides the ability to change a labeling system on the fly. 

If an ambidextrous design is engineered for a labeling system, a left-hand tamp can be converted to a right. The label nose assembly can be replaced with a more appropriate one. And, in the end, you save time and money because the entire assembly can be adapted at a whim.

Modular Labeling Solutions Increase Customization

Ambidextrous labeling lets manufacturers make spontaneous adaptations on the fly and can offer up the ability to take on new and different products whenever the phone rings.

For a packaging house servicing multiple contracts, modular design is pure gold. Contracts you’d otherwise lose to a competitor are all yours — money in the bank. 

It’s important that you have the ability to adjust your needs on the fly with labeling equipment that can work with a variety of print engines and align on either side of a conveyor. 

CTM: A Legacy Of Custom Labeling Systems

From the very beginning, CTM Labeling identified a need for spontaneous adaptability. In fact, we were the first to develop ambidextrous modularity in a single core unit.

Back in the early ‘90s, we started out under the name CTM Integration — building the material handling systems and mounting hardware components, like standard and custom mounting stands and conveyors, for our competitors. 

But, in the late 1990s, we had an opportunity to partner with a household brand plastics food container company and launch our own printer applicator. As we transformed CTM Integration into CTM Labeling Systems, we learned to modify our printer applicators and components to the various applicators in the industry, which ultimately paved the way for us to create custom labeling solutions for a variety of verticals and industries (like a wine bottle labeler for the wine industry).

Soon after, we saw the need to adapt our labeling systems on the fly to handle just about anything. At CTM, it’s not enough to provide a labeling system that simply works. We’re here to produce the best custom and modular high-quality labeling systems for every industry.

Custom Labeling Machines

With flexibility, you’re never backed into a corner. If a job evolves or you need to label something differently, your labeling system should be able to accommodate the change. That’s why we designed our 360A labeling system modules to be completely ambidextrous. They can adapt and take on new modules with minimal cost (as little as 20% the cost of a new labeler).

Leverage 360 degrees of possibility within a full circle of capability. When investing in a custom labeling system, know that the equipment purchased today will provide the flexibility needed to deliver any changes you need for years to come.
