Dell - Print and Apply Solution
The Challenge Faced
As the worlds leading manufacturer of computer and IT related hardware the requirement was substantial as there were quality issues that took priority. State of the art scanning, printing and vision equipment needed to be supplied that would adhere to a 24/7 manufacturing environment 365 days a year. The equipment must be tough enough to cope with these demands yet have a realistic ROI to satisfy dedicated production budgets.
“Key to this manufacturer’s requirement was a dedicated Print and Apply system that would incorporate state of the art technology and would adhere to the gruelling work schedule of a busy production facility.”Download Casestudy PDF
As with any world class manufacturing facility the requirements covered many areas that are typical of a multinational manufacturer production facility, however the requirement for a Print and Apply system was a request that many suppliers could not fulfill. VisionID were a perfect fit for this manufacturer through its partnership with MECTEC, the worlds leading supplier of Print and Apply applicator.
The need for world class products to ensure consistent flow within a busy manufacturing facility was paramount and key to the end users requirements. Knowing that VisionID had good working relationships with the worlds leading manufacturers of print and apply solutions as well as having a dedicated Service and Support department it was easy for this multi national manufacturer to choose VisionID as it’s supplier of bespoke Print and Apply solutions.
It was an added bonus for this manufacturer to know that VisionID had introduced a dedicated Consumables Account Manager to oversee the label and ribbon consumables requirements of a busy high end manufacturing facility. Once put into operation, further value is added by providing maintenance services and an optimised combination of supplies.

Return On Investment
Having initially tendered to become an authorised vendor to this manufacturing facility and winning of same, VisionID were quick to grasp the requirements of this manufacturer and the quality issues relating.
A mutual respect of each others expertise was forged and VisionID became the first port-of-call when it came to seeking advice on issues relating to new technologies such as Print and Apply solutions as well as RFID, Direct Part Marking (DPM) and Vision Systems, all of which VisionID has considerable expertise in. The relationship has grown to new heights with the awarding of a contract to install similar AutoID solutions to the manufacturer’s new sister plant which has recently been constructed in Eastern Europe. This award is seen by VisionID as a mark of approval by a manufacturing customer whom we would consider to be a partner as preferred to being an end user.
