CASE STUDY: Automated Stenciling


A major customer approached Z-Tec to design a prototype Automated Stenciling System to stencil a large 60" x 30" image on the side of a lumber package.

Z-Tec's Solution

Automated Stenciling

Z-Tec designed and demonstrated a prototype Automated Stenciling System capable of stenciling the entire 60" x 30" area in less than 45 seconds. The system was capable of stenciling not only graphic images, but variable information, such as date/time, shift number and operator initials.

The prototype was built on time and on budget, with speed and image quality exceeding the customer's expectation. The system was also easy to service and operate with a user friendly touch screen interface.
