Canon consolidates Quality Control by adopting Barcode Management

Canon, which is widely recognized as one of the world leaders in cameras, laser printers, fax machines and scanners, imposes significant importance on its product quality and after-sale services. In their desire to create additional efficiency, Canon partnered with Postek to adopt a barcode management system. This allowed Canon to consolidate its quality control efforts so that workers can easily trace every unit and each single part labeled by unique barcodes. 

With the expansion of Canon Company and its desired requirements on its equipment, it was necessary to improve their internal management system. Postek, as a local brand in China, with its superior advantages and cutting-edge technology, was selected by Canon Zhuhai as a substitute supplier of barcode label printers. This partnership with Postek helped Canon resolve reoccurring issues that could not be solved by its former suppliers.

Postek carefully studied the issues and worked closely with the Canon team to resolve a cutter deficiency ensuring the fluency in the assembly line. Furthermore, the Postek G Series carries all the advantages of conventional industrial thermal printers, but with light weight structure making it easy to maneuver and relocate. 

Barcode information management facilitated by Canon:

1.Quality Tracking: a complete quality tracing database system enables the traceability of production date, assembly line information, serial number of each main part, as well as material information and other essential data whenever needed.  

2.Material Cost Control: every single item is unique with a barcode label to control material requisition.

3.Volume Statistics: the serial number on the ready units or barcode label on the main parts facilitates an accurate accounting of quantity.

4.Archive of Finished Products: upload the information collected from finished product serial numbers or main part barcodes to a computer establishing a complete archive for future reference.

After a year of Postek implementation, Canon Zhuhai is now at its desired outstanding quality control and has improved its image among Canon users.

Canon Zhuhai factory has benefited so well from its new quality assurance system that they boast more confidence in Postek G Series label printers. As a result, when faced with future requirements for expansion or upgrading, Postek G Series barcode and label printers would be Canon's top choice.
