For companies who want to monitor their goods in transit, damage deterrent specialists Lamerholm have their TiltWatch smart labels now available for under a pound each. TiltWatch is an innovative system that helps to ensure sensitive products are kept in an upright position while being shipped. With a simple one-step application, the device is automatically armed when the adhesive backing is removed and once applied to the package cannot be reset. The indicator on the label will activate and change to red if shipments are tilted over 80°.
By using the Tiltwatch labels many companies have seen the amount of
product damage greatly reduced. Not only does TiltWatch enable companies to follow the products throughout the handling process but they also act as a deterrent as handlers are aware they are being monitored and more care is taken.
"Compared to the prices of the products that are being shipped and the resulting cost of any damage, the TiltWatch labels are certainly value for money." says Gemma Howarth, Sales Engineer for the ShockWatch range of damage deterrent labels.
Lamerholm Electronics Ltd, part of the IMC Group, has its headquarters in Letchworth, Hertfordshire. The company designs, manufactures and markets a wide range of damage prevention and
industrial safety products. Worldwide distribution is carried out through a national sales force and a network of strategic partners and resellers.
