Swiss Post Post Franks Using Zebra Printers and Flexible Self

Speed and flexibility
Customers need to be served quickly and simply at the post office counter, which is why Swiss Post already introduced the SCHAPO postal counter automation system some years ago. One of the central elements of the IT solution is a thermal printer that prints linerless, self-adhesive labels with barcodes and franking details, before cutting them to size using an integrated cutter. This linerless technology is extremely flexible because it allows labels of varying sizes to be printed without changing the paper. Using linerless paper avoids additional waste, in addition to which the post office employees are able to save time that they would otherwise need to peel off the adhesive labels. The advantages of this technology are plain to see, but place the highest of demands on the printer and consumables. "The old printers no longer met our requirements. They had exceeded their useful life: high failure rates, breakdowns, excessive maintenance and repair costs forced us to phase out the device, " reports Wendelin Kessler, Head of the Swiss Post's LogistikPoint in Lucerne.

The consumables used had a rubber-based adhesive coating that may have scored top points in terms of its high initial adhesiveness, but was so sticky that residues accumulated on the blades during cutting. The printer's rotating cutting mechanism became gummed up and had to be repaired at regular intervals. Since a service technician either had to drive out to the affected branch or the device had to be sent in for repairs, the printers, which were very expensive to buy in the first place, caused high maintenance costs. Within the scope of a Europe-wide WTO tender, Swiss Post went in search of a solution to the problem and evaluated the various different barcode printer manufacturers and their products.
