Large machine manufacturers need to provide reliable traceability for supply chains on the parts they manufacture and
assemble in machines. In addition, instructions and safety precautions are needed on external machine components to inform
customers. A wide range of quality identification solutions is required to properly label engines, internal parts and customer
Challenge: Efficiently print a wide range of labels
An agricultural machine manufacturer was using different printing systems to label engine and internal machine parts, wires,
cables and external, customer facing components. Each system required its own training, consumables, suppliers and
maintenance. The company needed a single, swift and versatile multi-role printing system to produce both industrial grade cable
and component labels, and esthetical customer facing safety and instructional labels.
Solution: One, easy-to-use label printing system
Brady Corporation offers the versatile, easy-to-use BradyPrinter i5300 Industrial Label Printer that can print very precisely on a
large selection of reliable labels that have been tested at customers worldwide. Intuitive label design apps that include optional
automated printing features further complete Brady’s response to the needs of machine manufacturers.
The BradyPrinter i5300 Industrial Label Printer can print on 1400 stock parts,including 80 different label materials. The system can print at 300 and 600 dpi to
produce both large and small internal part labels, rating plates, cable sleeves, cable
labels, instructional labels and machine safety signs. Swapping label materials is
easy, and can be done in less than 20 seconds thanks to an error-free ‘drop-lockprint’
product design and automatic printer set-up, initiated by a smart chip in the
label supplies. On top of that, the BradyPrinter i5300 gets it right from the first label,
and does not create any waste.
Labels that can be printed with the BradyPrinter i5300 include industrial-grade
materials that can resist heat, cold, fuels, oils, abrasion, dirt, moisture, UV-radiation
and weathering. Brady offers a technical data sheet for each label material and
can provide samples for testing in specific production environments. Applications
include product and component labelling, cable labelling, panel labelling, rating
plates, inventory control and asset tracking.
With Brady Workstation apps, all labels become easy to design and print with
the BradyPrinter i5300. Label templates can be designed and protected in just a
few steps, and they can optionally source variable data from company systems.
Bi-directional communication between the apps, the printer and the loaded
consumable enables error-free label design to minimise waste, save time and gain
