Why Are Quality Control/Calibration and Inspection Labels Needed?

Calibration and inspection labels are vital components for businesses that utilize machinery or equipment in their operations. Their primary purpose is to ensure the accuracy and efficiency of your equipment. If equipment is inaccurate or faulty, it can lead to errors or poor-quality results, negatively impacting productivity and tarnishing your business’s reputation. In addition, many industries have regulatory standards that mandate regular calibration and inspection of equipment. These labels serve as a visible record of these activities, helping your business maintain compliance and steer clear of potential legal issues or penalties. 

Quality control stickers and labels can be used in a variety of ways. As discussed above, manufacturers, healthcare companies, distribution companies, and utility companies often use these labels to ensure specifications are met for products, materials, and equipment. Most commonly, QC labels are used for:

  • Machine Calibration and Inspection
  • Service and Maintenance Completion for Equipment
  • Product Pass/Fail During Quality Inspections
  • Relaying Shelf Life Information

Regular inspections, indicated by these labels, can help identify potential problems before they escalate, contributing to a safer working environment. These labels also provide plenty of cost savings by keeping track of maintenance schedules, thereby preventing unexpected equipment breakdowns and repairs. 

How Do I Choose the Best QC Label for My Needs?

When you’re looking into investing in quality control stickers, you will need to consider a few factors, including:

  • The label’s adhesive properties: Since control labels are frequently replaced as the process progresses or is repeated, you need stickers that feature a temporary adhesive that stays in place for as long as you need but can also be easily peeled off at the appropriate time.
  • The label’s size: Make sure you choose QC stickers that are large enough to display any necessary information and catch technicians’ eyes at a glance.
  • The label’s ability to withstand heat: If your labels have not been designed for use with warm equipment, the label could fade, losing all of your crucial information. You will also want to make sure the sticker’s adhesive can withstand the temperature of the equipment and will not lose its stickiness.
  • The label’s security features: If it’s crucial that your quality control labels remain in place, you will want to choose tamper-proof stickers so that you know immediately if someone tried to mess with them.
