Specialised traceability labels

The need for traceability has never been higher. Gone are the days when it was driven and executed by the largest companies. These days, traceability demands are driven by industries and are driven down the supply chain, meaning relatively small companies are requested to comply. Affordable, quality traceability systems will be part of the solution that creates automated real-time production visibility.

Fully automated
Identification specialist Brady offers a completely automated and affordable traceability solution. The solution includes fast label printers, flexible label feeders, accurate label applicators and durable traceability labels. Brady's traceability labels are developed specifically for traceability and include a brand of specialised labels to track & trace printed circuit boards: the UltraTemp™ Label Series.

Every label in the UltraTemp™ Label Series has been constructed with automatic application in mind. Using polyimide materials, Brady's R&D Department constructed purpose-built labels for auto-apply and labelling of printed circuit boards. Equipped with 'clean liner technology', UltraTemp Labels adhesive cannot run into the press cut at excess temperatures. This eliminates downtime due to labels not being placed, or due to a fractured liner. Clean liner technology ensures a smooth production cycle even at high temperatures.

Most printed circuit boards are sensitive to ESD so it is essential that the label being placed on the board does not harbour charge that could cause ESD damage. Brady's static dissipative labels have surface resistivity values in the recommended range for dissipative ESD packaging materials as defined by ANSI/ESD S541-2008 (surface resistivity ≥1x10^4 to < 1 x10^11 ohms). The surface resistivity of these labels is due to their unique and patented construction.

The performance properties polyimide-based labels provide are ideally suited to withstand the extreme demands of printed-circuit board assembly. On top of this, Brady's UltraTemp™ Labels also feature an industry-leading adhesive formulation designed to withstand reflow and aqueous cleaning. Labels were tested for heat, chemical, and abrasion resistance to ensure optimal performance in reflow, wave solder, and in harsh washing systems. Brady obtained compatibility reports from both Kyzen and Zestron, showing they can resist the newest cleaning chemicals used in printed circuit board production.

Excellent printability
In addition to outstanding adhesive properties Brady's polyimide label materials also exhibit excellent printability which ensures accurate scanning in a wide variety of production processes. These durable print characteristics enable the ability to track work-in-progress and finished-goods materials accurately.

Brady's UltraTemp™ Labels are in line with substance restrictions as imposed by the EU REACH and EU RoHS legislation. Updates of the regulations are being monitored closely to guarantee product compliance in the future. The labels are fabricated in ISO-9001 and ISO/TS-16949-certified processes, are UL-CSA-approved and available worldwide, in both standard sizes and custom formats.
