Numina Group, a leading supplier of automated warehouse control systems, has been awarded “The Integrator of the Year Award for 2015”, by Panther Industries.” 

Numina Group’s automated labeling solutions use Panther’s line of print and apply label applicators to auto-apply packing sheets, shipping and retail compliance labels for automating parcel and LTL shipment to reduce labor, eliminate errors, and increase productivity in distribution order fulfillment.

“Numina Group has once again outpaced the industry by continuing their record as our number one sales leader of Panther Print and Apply Label Applicator Systems for 2015,” stated James Thompson, president of Panther Industries. 

Panther manufactures the highest performance, “best in class” print and apply label applicators, including the Panther P8e, an all-electric tamp application that achieves the industry’s fastest label print/tamp cycle performance and accurate label placement technology.

Numina Group’s software and labeling expertise reduces manual labor in manufacturing, warehouse and distribution order fulfillment, and shipping operations. 

Print and apply label applicators are essentially low-cost robots used to automate printing and application of labels. Distribution applications include inbound receiving, outbound compliance labeling, shipment labeling and manifesting of parcels for USPS, UPS, FedEx or LTL carriers.

Numina’s solutions combine in-motion barcode scanning, weighing, dimensioning and labeling with real-time software to automate pick, pack, and ship order fulfillment applications. 

Print-and-apply labeling automates pack and ship applications by combining shipping document print and insertion with auto applying the shipping label to streamline the entire order fulfillment operation.

“The performance and reliability of Panther’s print and apply line complements our automation solutions,” explains Dan Hanrahan, President of Numina Group. “We like suppliers with a passion for excellence in performance, reliability, and ease of maintenance. When customers invest in automation, they require highly reliable equipment. It is critical that the conveyor and automation equipment is rock solid, designed to operate 24/7,” he added.

Panther Industries shares Numina Group’s philosophy, and builds high quality applicators with a plug and play off the shelf industrial components. Their applicators use high performance Ethernet/IP and Modbus over Ethernet intelligent controls that easily integrate to Numina’s Real-time Distribution System, RDS-WCS labeling automation applications.

An excellent example of this is Panther’s P8e “All Electric” print and apply labeling system used in Numina’s One Step™ pack sheet and shipping label automation solutions.

One Step™ is a modular labeling automation solution to streamline packing, shipping, and manifesting. It typically reduces 5 or more operator workstations in B2B and e-comm manual packing and shipping distribution operations.

The retail fulfillment voice directed pick process is closely coupled to the WMS and works like this:

One Step™ automatically scans, weighs, dimensions, and prints and applies a combination 8.5” x 11” packing sheet and carrier shipping label in a single step, eliminating  manual labor by automating and validating that the correct documentation is applied to each shipment to eliminate sources of errors, boost productivity, and increase accuracy in E-commerce and B to B distribution operations.
