Simple Way To Improve Overstock Slab Inventory Use

Posted on 21 November 2017 by cradmin

This short video, put out by Maxwell Counters, shared their method for helping to improve the use of “overstock” slab material that had previously just been taking up space.

While the concept is relatively simple, it seems to have made a major difference in the ease at which they can sell leftover slabs of granite, quartz or other countertop materials and is worth a look, if that is a problem you may be facing in your own operations.

Eurosoft Inc. Offers InStock Inventory Software

Posted on 23 July 2014 by cradmin

eurosoft instock remnant managment softwareEurosoft, Inc. offers InStock, an inventory and remnant management software that gives the user the ability to optimize, organize and track full-sized sheet goods and reusable scrap pieces in a materials database. The contents of the database can be pulled directly into optimization software such as ARDIS allowing optimizations to be run against the current material quantities and sizes on hand. This makes the software a suitable intermediary between storage and retrieval systems and engineering software or ERP systems. Remnants that are saved to the database can then be used later when an optimization is run and a correct-sized remnant exists. The operator is notified to retrieve the remnant from storage and confirms that the remnant has been used.

Label Printers for Fabricators

Posted on 09 August 2012 by CRadmin2

Label printers can be an important piece of hardware for manufacturers and large or commercial fabricators. Labeling prevents mishaps and mix-ups, and it makes it simple to sort and categorize both stock and finished product.

Labeling can be part of a countertop fabricators inventory process, to help identify brands, colors and lots of a particular piece of scrap or sheet/slab, and can also be valuable in identifying what pieces of fabricated material go to what job or even where at a particular jobsite. This can be of extreme value when handling large or commercial projects where there may be numerous similar pieces of material.

Labeling finished product can take the guesswork out of installers hands, and can help eliminate problems color-matching.

One of the top models of label printers is the Epson ColorWorks C3400-LT Color Label Terminal, which includes a fully functional computer. This makes all of the printer’s features available in one stand-alone unit, and there are no connectivity hassles or compatibility issues that may be experienced with accessory printers.

Compact and All-Inclusive Label Printing

The Epson C3400-LT comes complete with a high-speed processer and a 12.1-inch color LCD touchscreen monitor that includes XGA and TFT technologies. The touchscreen makes the printer simple to control, and it uses space efficiently because neither a mouse nor a keyboard is required.

It uses an onboard 1.0 GHz Intel Atom E640 computer processor, which works in conjunction with 1 GB of preinstalled RAM that can be upgraded to a maximum of 2 GB. In addition to the CPU and memory, this printer includes a 250 GB hard disk drive (HDD), six USB ports and a 10/100/1000 Ethernet port.

To bring all of the hardware together and make the printer simple to control, it includes the Windows POSReady 2009 operating system streamlined for use in business equipment that primarily serves in a limited capacity, such as printers and cash registers.

Fast, Efficient Printing

Coupled with the computing capability is a fast and efficient color inkjet label printer with Just in Time color printing technology. This technology virtually eliminates wasted labels and reduces the overall cost of label printing. Using this system, labels don’t have to be preprinted on full sheets, which can cause hundreds of labels to go unused. You are able to print only the labels you need at the moment they are needed.

The inkjets in this printer use MicroPiezo inkjet technology, which includes automatic nozzle checking and allows for high-speed color printing. It uses two ink cartridges: a composite black cartridge and a single CMY pigmented ink cartridge.
