Operator is Warned if a
Label is Wrong
Eliminate Errors when using Pre-printed Labels
Do you batch-print labels for Finished Parts at a central location?
Do you distribute the pre-printed labels to one or more production lines, at one or more plant sites?
If so, you run the risk mis-labeling hundreds or thousands of Finished Parts should the wrong labels be delivered to a line and applied to containers before the error is detected.
With the SPEDE Line-side Label Validation solution, you can keep your current batch-printing process, but eliminate the risk of labeling errors.
Line-side Label Validation uses the Symbol MK500 wireless terminal, installed at the production line, to verify that a pre-printed label is correct before it is applied to a container of parts.

How Does Real-time Validation Work?
The MK500 is a small RF TouchScreen with a color display and integrated barcode scanner. It connects to your 802.11 network, and communicates with the PC Server-based SPEDE Label Validation Software.
When your host system prints a batch of Finished Part labels, the SPEDE software obtains the Part number / Serial Number data for the printed labels.
At line-side, before applying a pre-printed label to a container parts, the operator scans the label serial number. SPEDE verifies the Part Number and Serial number are correct for that production line, and then displays a message on the MK500 screen:
- Green "OK" message if the label is CORRECT
- Red "WRONG LABEL" message and a loud BEEP if the label is WRONG.
This one-scan step is all it takes to error-proof your process of labeling Finished Product - even if you're printing the labels in advance.
Get Real-time Production Data, too!
As a by-product of scanning Finished Parts labels, SPEDE Label Validation creates a database of your real-time
