As the market-leading label management system, NiceLabel is used on production lines around the world – and Leibinger is proud to be the first continuous inkjet printer with its own NiceLabel-supported printer driver.
This means that all the business benefits of an integrated label management system ‒ such as NiceLabel software ‒ can be combined with the reliability and precision of Leibinger printers to print information, such as barcodes, best before dates or lot numbers, directly or on the label onto products and packaging.
Producers use NiceLabel, self-sufficient or as an integration in their ERP system, and thus so they have a user interface for the entire labeling, coding and marking chain. This means simple management from the label to the CIJ imprint.
What is NiceLabel Software
NiceLabel is a label design and management system that helps companies to improve the quality, speed and efficiency of their labeling processes, while reducing cost. It includes a barcode label designer function and designer software to manage label printing onto label templates and barcode labels. With the help of NiceLabel, organizations are able to digitally transform their entire labeling process, from design to printing to label management. With the easy-to-use designer software, a designer can create labels easily and efficiently, printing them at the touch of a button.
What is label management?
Leibinger customers typically produce a wide variety of products for many different customers. Managing the production, manufacture, storage and delivery of millions of products requires a sophisticated labeling process to ensure that all batches are accurately marked and managed throughout the entire process, from manufacture to delivery. Label management software, such as NiceLabel, sits at the heart of such operations. It integrates with enterprise systems such as SAP and Oracles and controls a variety of printers that print the labels, either onto an adhesive label, barcode label or – as with Leibinger CIJ printers – directly onto the product or packaging.
Which Leibinger printers are supported by NiceLabel?
NiceLabel has developed a printer driver for printing with all JET2neo and JET3up series models.
The models of the Basic and Universal Line can be used with the standard NiceLabel software or the more advanced NiceLabel Pro.
This creates a combined, best-of-breed system to meet the labeling and printing requirements of most organizations, including a label design function that allows a barcode label to be created and applied directly using CIJ technology.
How can Leibinger CIJ printers be used with NiceLabel and NiceLabel Pro?
With a printer driver specifically designed for Leibinger printers, NiceLabel has made it possible to include Leibinger coding and marking machines within its label management system for a better user experience. Leibinger CIJ printers are a small but essential part of the production line, printing all kinds of variable data – including barcodes, QR codes, best-before-dates, text or logos – onto any surface or label. Typically label printing is performed by a standard label printer, which is then attached to the product or packaging – with Leibinger printers, barcode labels can be replaced by direct marking.
