Labels, tags for traceability of marble, granite and other natural stones

Print

 

Under the brand IDStone¬ģ we offer a unique range of high-performance labels and tags designed for every kind of material (labels and tags for blocks, labels and tags for slabs, labels and tags for tiles‚Ķ ), in order to achieve data capture automation and the desirable traceability in the industry of the natural stone. From bar code labels made with special and high performance materials up to radiofrequency tags (RFID labels), we have the most desirable solution that your company needs.

 

Barcode labels

Our R & D has developed a range of high performance labels, industrial processes resistant to industrial processes in the quarry or in the manufacturing plant and with excellent resistance to weathering for long periods of time. Our labels and tags provide concrete and effective solutions for the natural stone industry. Some features of our exclusive labels and tags:


-  Specifically designed for the natural stone industry.
-  High adherence on different materials.
-  Perfectly suited to irregular surfaces, like slabs edges.
-  Excellent resistance to weathering for long periods of time.
-  Excellent resistance to industrial processes in the manufacturing plants.
-  Both labels and bar code prints are resistant to resins and industrial ovens.
-  Excellent barcode readability, both indoors and outdoors even in bright sunlight.
-  Contrasted durability by the experience of years in our customers.

 

RFID tags

The advantages provided by radio tags (RFID, Radio Frequency Identification or RFID) in other sectors of industry and commerce are well known. If you really think that RFID can meet your needs to identify blocks, slabs or tiles, take hold of our experience in the industry to start your project identification by RFID. RFID is not our core business, but it¬īs a technology that can help to meet your needs. We have tested this technology with some of our customers and we can help you to demystify it. We believe that it is a complementary technology to the barcode identification and we know when to use it and how.

 

Labels for marble blocks, granite or other natural stones

The identification of natural stone blocks, coupled with the mobility and ease of transmitting information that provides IDStone Mobile, provides the following advantages and benefits:

- Reduced time spent on marking blocks

- Reduced time spent on block inventory tasks.

- Reduced the time of the of information capture processes.

- Elimination of errors in the interpretation of handwritten information.

- Elimination of errors due to manual entry of data into the system.

 

Considering that the blocks are the essential raw material to start the process of the production in the plant or factory, we understand the importance of having reliable information about the stock of the blocks at any time, anywhere and regardless of whether the block is in our warehouse, in a quarry in another country, or being transported by sea.

We offer two different approaches to identify blocks:


- Labels for natural stone blocks placed by physical anchor.
- Labels with high strength adhesive for marble or granite blocks.


Either of the two systems has proven useful to our customers and in both cases the time of placement of the label is less than the time spent with the traditional method of marking with spray paint.


We will study your case and indicate the most suitable identification system for your needs.


 

Labels for marble slabs, granite or other natural stones

For an optimum traceability block ‚Äď slab, identifying each of the slabs obtained by sawing in the gangsaw is an essential process. Whether you want slabs identification by package or to identify slab by slab, we have the solution.


The benefits of identification are obvious:

- Traceability block - slab.
- Information on the yield of the block or set of blocks.
- Reduced time spent on slabs inventory processes.
- Reliable information about slabs stock.


We offer three different systems for identifying tables:

- Adhesive labels for marble or granite slabs to apply on the edge.
- Adhesive RFID labels for marble or granite slabs to apply on the edge.
- Adhesive labels for natural stone slabs to apply on the surface.




The labels applied on the edge of the marble or granite slabs represent a significant advance in the natural stone industry. Developed and patented by our R & D, the labels are applied just after the block has been cut in the gangsaw and they perfectly fit to the irregular surface of the slab edge that is still wet. The labels have been designed to withstand all the production plan processes: the resin of the operations of reinforcement, the temperature of the flue curing ovens or the process of polishing, for example. IDStone labels provide the following advantages over other labeling system for slabs of marble, granite or other natural stone:

- Identification of each slab from each block.
- Identification of the slab at the beginning of the process.
- Identification of the slabs packages purchased without needing to separate table to table.
- Real stock of slabs just from sawing process.
- Permanent inventory.
- Monitoring of productive state of the slab.
- Elimination of errors in the logistics processes of the slabs.
- Facilitates monitoring of customer complaints.

IDStone¬ģ labels to apply on the edge of the slabs can also be supplied with radio frequency tags (RFID) embedded.

Labels for marble tiles, granite or other natural stones

Our range of labels for the natural stone industry also allows you to identify other smaller formats such as tiles, etc. Generally IDStone¬ģ labels are also valid for labeling these small materials regardless of the packaging system to be used: drawers, strapping pallets, shrink pallets, and so on.

- Adhesive labels for sets of tiles or other materials.
- Adhesive labels stapled or nailed to the pallets of tiles or other materials.
