Why Precision Is Critical for Print and Apply Labels and Conveyors

Precision is the key to success in all print and apply labeling systems, especially in high-volume e-commerce environments. We understand that accuracy in product position and conveyance speed are critical components of successful printing and labeling applications.

If your in-line labeling conveyor does not meet your precision and accuracy needs or integrate seamlessly with your printer and label equipment, you could face a number of costly challenges, including delayed shipments, incorrect labeling, and loss of productivity.

Delivery Delays & Reshipping Costs

When product labels aren’t accurate, delays in fulfillment and shipping are practically inevitable. Remedying these issues often entails costly reshipping fees.

If products or packages aren’t positioned correctly on a production line, you’ll end up with a large volume of mislabeled items, significantly slowing down your operations and increasing costs. 

Customer Confusion & Frustration

In addition to reshipping fees, incorrect labels can lead to frustrated customers and a loss of brand reputation. Customers who receive mislabeled products, as well as those who experience shipping delays firsthand, may be confused or frustrated by incorrect product labeling.

Prompt, accurate delivery of products is essential to customer satisfaction and loyalty, and failing to meet these standards could result in your customers taking their business elsewhere. 

Wasted Product, Time & Materials

The time and materials invested in mislabeled products are wasted resources. When labels are incorrectly applied or incorrect information is printed, your products will have to be reworked or disposed of, leading to additional material costs and further production delays.

Integrating Print and Apply Labeling with Precision Conveyors Conveyors

Labeling conveyor systems are versatile and can be used with a variety of products, across industries. For packaging and fulfillment operations, accurately applied printing and labeling solutions are top priorities for the following items:


Packaging goods accurately and efficiently is key for seamless order fulfillment. You can combine your label machine with conveyor belt packaging solutions to increase accuracy and efficiency. 

Whether you’re automating the process of packaging products for delivery and applying shipping labels or you’re bundling items together for distribution and adding barcodes or RFID tags, conveyors are essential parts of the process.


From printing specific information on boxes for product identification to externally labeling them for tracking, you’ll need conveyors with enough power and precision to keep up with the demands of your production line. 

Combined with box labeling machines, a high-speed, high-precision conveyor system helps you keep your labeling operations running quickly and accurately.

Envelopes or Sleeves

With a conveyor system designed for speed and precision, you can ensure that your automatic label applicators perform reliably, placing labels in the correct place with the right amount of pressure. This helps to improve both accuracy and efficiency, ultimately reducing errors and saving you time and money. 

Bottles, Jars, & Containers

When you need to label bottles or containers quickly and accurately, you’ll need a labeling system designed to handle your unique product while maintaining just the right speed and precision that can keep up with your production line. With label print and apply solutions integrated with precision conveyors, you can maintain the accuracy and speed necessary to securely apply labels to glass and plastic containers. 

Folding Cartons

For products that require folding cartons, such as food items or retail products, you’ll need a print and apply labeling system and conveyor belt solution that can meet the specific speed and accuracy requirements of your production line.

A reliable and efficient fold carton labeler machine combined with conveyors will ensure that your orders are assembled, labeled, and organized correctly. 

What to Look for When Selecting Conveyors for Your Automatic Labeling Machines

If you need to improve, upgrade, or replace your current print and label operations, finding a suitable conveyor system is essential. Depending on your production needs, you should look for specific features when selecting conveyors for your labeling operations, such as:

Compatibility with Labeling Machinery

It’s important to make sure that the conveyor you choose is compatible with your high-tech printing and labeling machines. You’ll need to ensure that the speed and accuracy of both your print and apply label machine and conveyor are aligned, as this will help you avoid any potential errors or mislabeled products. 

Weight Capacity

If you’re processing heavier items or large quantities of items at once, be sure to take into account the conveyor’s weight capacity. You want to be able to trust that the conveyor system you choose is powerful enough to reliably handle the products you’re labeling. 

Size and Length of the Conveyor

Smaller operations may require a shorter label machine conveyor, while larger ones can benefit from longer, heavier duty systems. The space you have available in your facility will also impact your options.

At Dorner, we understand that space is a premium, and we offer a number of space-efficient, compact, or flexible conveyors to suit your needs. 

Adaptability and Expansion Capabilities

Depending on your specific applications and growth initiatives, finding a conveyor that can easily adapt and expand as you grow is key. Our conveyor systems are designed to meet the changing needs of any industry, allowing you to add or remove modules without replacing your entire setup.

Having reliable, high-precision conveyors is essential for efficient operations, especially if you need to make adjustments to your print and apply label applicators. If your system handles products or packages of varying shapes and sizes, the ability to adapt to different items without detracting from the accuracy of label placement is critical for maximum efficiency. 

How Print and Label Conveyors can Enhance Your Warehouse Labeling System

Using a print and label conveyor system in your warehouse can help you ensure that all labels are accurately applied to each product. This helps reduce the risk of incorrect labeling while streamlining process flow, and providing increased efficiency and accuracy. 

Reliability and Safety

Conveyors are designed to ensure that products are moved safely and quickly without requiring as much strenuous manual labor. Combined with the need for meticulous shipping label placement, conveyors can provide repeatable results while keeping workers safe from potential hazards and reducing the risk of product damage or mislabeled items.

With an efficient conveyor working together with printing and labeling equipment, such as an automatic box label machine, you can rest assured that your labeling process will be error-free and reliable from start to finish.
