Coding, labelling, inspection and integration solutions on show

Understanding accurately what’s happening on the production line is vital to driving continuous improvement and enhancing a business’s profits. Matthews Australasia will demonstrate a range of coding, labelling, inspection and integration solutions at foodpro 2017 — here are just five:

  1. Serialisation: Matthews’ serialisation solution makes it more difficult for counterfeiters to sell fake product, because it’s difficult to duplicate valid encrypted codes. Typically, serialisation codes are applied during manufacturing using specialised marking technologies.
  2. Labelling: Matthews will have a wide range of labelling technologies on display, including label printer applicators (LPA), label applicators (LA) and label printers.
  3. Inkjet: Continuous inkjet coders (CIJ) are suitable for marking irregularly shaped products and high-speed lines in food, beverages and groceries with graphics (such as logos) and text. They code variable information, including date codes, batch numbers, promotional codes, serialisation codes and product identification codes. Matthews will have the latest Linx inkjet coders on display at foodpro.
  4. TTO: Matthews will also demonstrate the Linx thermal transfer overprinters (TTOs), coding on to flexible packaging films and self-adhesive labels. TTOs are suitable for date/batch codes, logos, product descriptions, ingredients lists, nutritional panels and fully compliant high-density barcodes. TTOs print easily onto generic film packaging and so are a cost-effective printing solution, especially for snack foods, confectionery and fresh produce.
  5. Lasers: Matthews’ laser coding solutions can apply permanent barcodes and human-readable text on primary and secondary packaging, including glass, plastics (such as PET, polystyrene and polypropylene), metal and cardboard. With no consumables and easy implementation, the laser coders are fast and cost-effective, with high-quality results. See Matthews’ laser coders in action for anti-counterfeiting and brand protection, too.

This July, foodpro 2017 will celebrate 50 years supporting Australia’s food industry. The iconic event for the food and beverage manufacturing industry will showcase the latest technology and innovations in food processing, packaging, science and technology from 16–19 July at the ICC, Darling Harbour, Sydney.
