Empire Screen Printing, a leading manufacturer of screen-printed products, enables its customers to practice lean manufacturing with decal sheets, where multiple labels are printed on a single sheet instead of being produced as individual decals. These multi-label sheets are ideal for equipment needing multiple decals. Decal sheets improve productivity, reduce the chance of error, and help facilitate novel production processes that advance lean manufacturing practices.
Lean manufacturing aims to maximize productivity and minimize waste, reducing lead times and operating costs while improving the quality of the product. For manufacturers, decal sheets streamline the process and keep like components together.
Running decal sheets can reduce lead times by allowing separate decals to be produced simultaneously. It also builds quality by allowing manufacturers to know what decals are needed for each product, reducing the chance that manufacturers will forget to apply a decal during the assembly stage. Decal sheets deliver value to the customer by putting all the necessary decals for a particular product in one location.
By reducing lead times for customers while delivering value, decal sheets play an important part in Empire’s greater commitment to solution-based customer service. Empire helps customers achieve the quantity, quality, impact, and cost desired for each project and product, whether the aim is to build a brand or streamline production processes to advance lean manufacturing.
