Box/Case Labeling Program & Features

Compact & Mobile Manual Case Labeling System

How it works!

  • User identifies a product to be weighed by selecting it from a hot-key list, product list, or scanning a pre-applied label to get the product ID
  • The case/box is placed on a static scale
  • If the net weight for the case/box is within the bounds of the minimum and maximum for the product, the process continues
  • The embedded controller will accept the net weight, retrieve additional product data, format and send the label to the printer for label generation
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated working with you and the Vande Berg Scale Company. Your final custom design of the manual box scaling and labeling system for us has enhanced our packaging quality and efficiency quite a bit. We were able, within a small foot print, go from box erector and filling station, to scaling and labeling, and on to automatic box taping making a smooth system. Thank you again.
