LEM manufactures customized labels and tags for Original Equipment Manufacturers to their specifications and application needs. We work directly with equipment manufacturers to fulfill their identification needs for part identification labels and nameplates, control panel faceplates, instructional labels, control mechanism identification markers, calibration labels, regulatory labels, pressure-sensitive numbers and letters and all-weather decals.
The products LEM manufactures for OEM’s are used by a large variety of equipment manufacturers for products as diverse as ladders, wind turbines, military tanks and airplanes, container ships and pleasure boats, cranes and hoists and electrical transformers. The sizes and shapes of these products are designed to exact dimensions for a perfect fit with the manufacturer’s parts. Proofs and samples are made to ensure the proper fit which is critical to the OEM.
Label kitting is an easy idea that saves time and hassle and is a best practice for LEAN manufacturing. All the labels that must be adhered to a piece of equipment or machinery are printed on a single sheet or assembled in a kit that is so easy to use that training workers takes minutes.
The lack of a single label can bring an entire assembly line to a halt!. If that label is a mandated safety warning and it’s out of stock, production must stop until a fresh supply arrives. Manufacturers who use a label kitting system don’t have this problem because the required labels are arranged on a sheet in the order they are to be applied or assembled in a kit. As the label kits travel down the assembly line the labels are applied in order eliminating any confusion about the order of application. When the item is completely assembled, the label kitting sheet or kit will be empty.
If your business is not yet using label kitting, now is a good time to consider incorporating it into your assembly line. Label kitting can boost efficiency, trim costs and minimize the potential for liability claims.
Our customer service and sales support team will work with you to determine the best kitting option to make your assembly line operation even better.
