- Product marking by passion
In the automotive sector, labeling ensures that components to the smallest screw are traceable. In logistics, labeling guarantees scheduled delivery. On electrical devices, typeplates refer to performance data and use.
The pharmaceutical industry sees labeling prevent from errors relevant to health. In chemistry, labeling points out to risks associated with the handling of the products – multi-colored and without any barriers as regards language. On food, labeling informs about ingredients and on textiles about its best possible care.

All mechanical and plastic components used in the devices are manufactured at the Sömmerda site near Erfurt. The machinery as well as the assembly lines are always using the latest technology. Substantial production methods provide the precondition to manufacture even complex marking systems economically.
When it comes to using cab devices, the customers expect a long service life and 100 per cent availability. The printing and labeling processes have to be precise and reliable. Intuitive operation is a key criterion especially with alternating staff.
On this basis, cab continuously develops ideas and assigns new technologies to real applications. cab does not only sell products for individual demands, but offers also comprehensive consulting and scalable system solutions. All competencies for the whole process chain of electronic, mechanic and software engineering are provided within cab.
A quarter of a million cab devices are in continuous operation all over the world. cab printers and systems are operated by global players as well as by small and medium-sized companies. The figures are clear: 88 per cent of all cab customers steadily rely on solutions made by the family company set in Karlsruhe – many of them for 20 years or more.

cab has been a pioneer in stand-alone printing. The Hermes C system for printing and applying two-color labels in one operation has been honored with the German Packaging Award.
Long before Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things became evident, cab devices did far more than just printing on a label.
The products’ architecture has always been designed according to intuitive usability, integration in automated production lines as well as reliability.
The interfaces and protocols of cab’s current printer generation offer the basis to bi-directionally interact with master networks, production planning or PLC.
Product marking calls for new techniques and procedures to support work processes in general and industrial manufacturing in particular.
Labeling components, products and packaging is no longer, and has not been for a long time just a possibility of identifying objects to end users. Labeling is needed to create, in the first place, a possibility of assigning production or customer specific data.
As for the future, cab still has great things waiting in the pipeline.
