With Z-Tec's Flying Barcoder right now we're actually getting 100% barcode label application. I was really surprised on the accuracy of the machine... It was a pretty exciting time for the operation, we were putting in this Flying Barcoder machine and it was working. I think we have a very excellent working relationship with Z-Tec Automation Systems Inc... building a machine that has never been seen before... We were installed and in place in 24 hours.”
