Pilot program leads to more opportunity for youths to exercise skills

Kendrick Castillo spends four hours a day, four days a week in a large warehouse, where he maneuvers tiny wires, assembles metal and plastic parts and does programming on a computer. Young for an intern, the 16-year-old is learning all facets of a professional manufacturing job.

“This has a lot more technology than the eye can see,” said Castillo, referring to a line of large, black label-printing machines. Read more...

Invata Intralogistics Utilizes Panther Industries' Products

 

Invata Intralogistics is a company that focuses on designing and implementing automated systems to create the most efficient distribution center they can. Panther Industries' print and apply systems are an integral piece of their automated systems. The first label printed and applied within an Invata warehouse is a license plate number label (LPN). This label is what allows for the rest of the system to be automated as it will be scanned at different checkpoints. The next use for one of our print and apply machine is the shipping label. Both the LPN and shipping label are then scanned to ensure that the correct labels are on the appropriate package. The LPNs placed on the products by the Panther Industries Inc. machines are the first piece of a well thought out assembly line.

Panther Hires STEM School and Academy Interns as Part of New Partnership

Panther Industries just hired three new interns for Summer 2017! The STEM School and Academy students will hold a position in the Engineering Department, Marketing Department, and the Service Department. The goal of the 8 week internship program is to give the students relevant and rigorous learning opportunities in the STEM fields of manufacturing and the Global Supply Chain. It is our hope that this set of interns are the first of many to come with Panther's partnership with the STEM School and Academy.

Panther Partners with the STEM School and Academy

Panther Industries is proud to sponsor and partner with our local STEM School and Academy to help their students learn more about engineering, manufacturing and the Global Supply Chain. Through our partnership Panther has had the opportunity to donate real-world engineering, and electronic technology to the school in order for the students to work with the types of materials used in the real world. Sponsoring these students will go a long way in helping them to understand what we do from day to day and see it firsthand.

With a who's who of national retailers on its client list, the labeling machine manufacturer is growing rapidly and expanding its catalog with an eye on natural foods and craft beer.

After ImTech acquired Arvada-based Stadia Label, Panther founder Jim Thompson struck out on his own and started his own label-focused manufacturer.

"We've always made industrial labeling equipment," says VP Christian Dow. As much as things stay the same, he adds, Panther's market has changed: The company has grown with e-commerce and is now a supplier to some of the biggest stores on the Web. "Our biggest customers are the large retailers: Target, Walmart, Amazon, Dell."

That means cutting-edge automated labelers that automatically detect the height of the package coming down the conveyor at massive fulfillment and distribution centers.

Dow says Panther is helping customers modernize operations with a keen eye on the tenets of Industry 4.0, a.k.a. the fourth industrial revolution. It follows that the company's products are designed to integrate with a customer's existing processes and systems.

The company's Panther 2000 and Panther P8 labelers include a built-in operator display that relays real-time information on job status, feedback, and errors.

"We're not a low-cost leader," says Dow. "We're selling a more full-featured product."

Project Scope?
We use our Panther print and apply to affix identifying labels to mail trays that we sort to postal zip codes. 10 years ago we purchased our first and as business expanded we now own a total of 4. At a rate of 2000 packages per hour these machines easily handle the pace. Our first machine is still in use today.

How did we help?
Initially we ran bundles of strapped magazines. We soon discovered the standard tamp head would catch in the strap and lift the bundles creating havoc for consistent production output. After contacting Panther engineering and explaining our issues they came up with a new design that proved to be very reliable. When we went to the present mail tray product a similar situation presented itself as the trays would more often than not get crushed and result was a concave surface that interfered with easy application. In this case they sent us a couple prototypes. In the end we actually combined a couple of their ideas with our own as we could easily experiment in real time. After a month trial we sent a model to them to create a nicely machined and professional performing tamp head. This thing will place a label on any deviation in surface of the product to be labeled.

How did we perform?
Not once have I ever felt that I was not being treated in a professional manner. I have always been shown a true interest in suggestions I had based on real time experience with these machines.

Have you been back?
On a as need basis. I say this as the machines are that reliable you don't need to call back

Why others should use Panther:
Excellent service. Very reliable well built machine. Still in use after 10 years.
