Cable Traceability More Efficiency with Automated Cable Identification
Industries that work with large volumes of cables and are in need of cable traceability and identification can increase production efficiency with Brady Corporation's complete and automated cable identification solutions.
Cable sleeves and wraparound labels can be applied up to 10 seconds faster with Brady's automated cable identification solutions. The Wraptor A6500 can print and wrap a label around a cable in 5 seconds, saving time in cable production when traceability and identification requirements need to be met. If you identify cables with sleeves, the company can offer the BSP45 Automated Sleeve Applicator to remove sleeves from their liner and apply them on a cable by activating a foot pedal, states the company. Sleeves can be printed with great accuracy and precision using the Brady Printer i7100 or with the BBP72 Sleeve Printer to print both sleeve sides simultaneously.
Dedicated wraparound labels and sleeves are available for maximum reliability when using the firm’s automated identification solutions. The labels and sleeves themselves are of great quality and can resist challenging industrial environments. The B-472 self-laminating vinyl label offers abrasion, fuel, oil and outdoor resistance and comes in a wide range of colours, and the B-499 nylon cloth wraparound label adds dirt, heat, cold and chemical resistance. Both these labels work seamlessly with the Wraptor A6500. For the BSP45 Sleeve Applicator, the company recommends its B-342, B-7646 and B-7641 sleeves which include diesel resistant or low smoke zero halogen properties. All identification materials have been tested using standard ASTM test methods for optimal reliability. Technical data sheets are available from Brady's website.
