Brainboxes design, manufacture and ship 100,000 electronics products each year.
They have refined their electronics production line to enable a product to be manufactured in just 40 seconds using machinery.
However, they then rely on a series of disjointed, manual steps to apply labels to the products and cases.
With more than 100 different types of products and batch sizes of between 20 and 2,000, the task of labelling between one to eight labels for any given product is extremely labour-intensive and time consuming. There are also the additional challenges of designing, printing and storing millions of labels.
Brainboxes identified an opportunity to use automation to remove this significant bottleneck in its process, improving productivity to become more efficient and profitable.
Luke Walsh, Managing Director at Brainboxes, said: “Over the past 35 years our engineers have become experts at designing all the electronics for our devices, and we have continuously developed a lean manufacturing process. But the sticking point and the block to our flow was always labelling.
“We had a few ideas about how to solve this challenge but we needed the right sort of support and collaboration to make sure we adopted the right technology in the right way to avoid wasting unnecessary time and resources.”
