Achieving Traceability Through Product Labeling

What is Traceability?

Traceability is the ability to capture and chronologically interrelate uniquely identifiable entities. Traceability allows manufacturers, end users, and other supply chain members to tell from the part itself when and where the component was produced and who manufactured it.

In recent years traceability has become a buzzword among electronic manufacturers seeking to eliminate the presence of counterfeit components in the supply chain. In addition to combating counterfeit goods, traceability also goes a long way in preventing defects, recalls, and product returns.

Traceability Through Labeling

One of the most common ways to provide traceability is through accurate and thorough labeling. In fact, case studies have shown an 85% drop in customer returns simply by using labeling to fix traceability issues.

However, for many electronic components like PCBs, using labels for traceability can be difficult. For example, some labels may cause extreme heat reflow or high pressure in PCBs. Furthermore labels may not withstand industrial-strength wash processes. Since losing traceability is so costly, manufacturers need to be sure that they are using the right label for the job.

Brady UltraTemp Polyimide labels are specifically designed to minimize heat reflow, withstand wash processes, and reduce electrostatic dissipation (ESD). Additionally, the UltraTemp Polyimide labels feature high smear and chemical resistance.
