Matthews Intelligent Identification will launch the Avery ALX 735 Wipe On Label Printer Applicator (LPA) at AUSPACK PLUS 2011. The LPA system has been designed for highly demanding production lines, offering efficiency, reliability and an improved total cost of ownership with no air required.
Matthews’ locally developed iDSnet suite integrates all coding and labelling equipment to deliver a product-traceability solution throughout manufacturing businesses, creating more streamlined operations. The company will be launching iDSnet Manager Version 2 at AUSPACK PLUS 2011.
Designed to code onto flow wrap, labels and gloss card, the IP65-rated version of the Linx TT5 washdown thermal transfer printer is suitable for food, confectionery and pharmaceutical applications where hygiene is paramount. The specially designed washdown cassette protects the TT5 washdown printer against water and dust ingress.
Linx Printing Technologies has released Linx opaque blue ink 1043. The high opacity ink is a distinctive sky blue colour, developed for industrial and commercial continuous ink jet applications.
Linx Printing Technologies has launched an IP65-rated version of its thermal transfer overprinter. The Linx TT5 washdown printer uses a specially designed washdown cassette during washdown routines, to ensure that the equipment is protected against water and dust ingress.
The Linx 7300 is suited to a wide range of industries as the technology in the continuous ink jet (CIJ) printer focuses on pared-back running costs and service intervals tailored to the printer’s operating environment to reduce servicing - both achieved without compromising quality.
The Linx 4900BC bottle coding solution has been specifically designed for wet and humid conditions. It uses inks that stick and it prints exactly where needed.
With a narrow font that reduces code length, smaller drop size and a large array of printing formats, the Linx 6800 Swift offers high-speed, continuous inkjet coding for product identification in confined or awkward places, such as bottle tops and necks or cabling.
Matthews Intelligent Identification has launched iDSnet, its product traceability solution, in the US. Developed in house, the software integrates coding and labelling equipment on a production line/s through a server or central PC.
This paper examines the uses of SSCC labelling, its benefits, the issues with incorrect pallet labelling and the solution in detail.
Counterfeit food and beverage products are on the rise. Australian goods are increasingly taken advantage of due to their reputation as superior, high-quality produce. It is now critical for the industry to apply serialisation for better traceability and authenticity.
Coding and labelling technology has moved way beyond simple product identification. Now you can convey a treasure-trove of information, improve business efficiency, defeat counterfeiters, maximise productivity and more. But information is power — make sure you understand what is available and what you should expect from your investment.
To remain competitive, Australian manufacturers need to guarantee excellent quality whilst protecting their profit margins. To achieve these standards, human inspection is no longer enough. Automated product inspection ticks all the boxes whilst reducing operational expenses and optimising plant efficiency.
Between 2003 and 2012, Food Standards Australia (FSANZ) coordinated 658 food recalls. 34% resulted from incorrect labelling, including undeclared allergens. Understand the type and cost of recalls in Australia and how they can be avoided.
Accurate and compliant Pallet labelling is a key step in achieving product traceability and ensuring smooth flow of goods through the supply chain. This whitepaper covers the key causes of incorrect pallet labelling as reported by major retail chains and the solution for error free compliant pallet labelling.
This Application Paper looks at what a packaging code management solution is, the need for a packaging code management solution (PCM) and the business benefits of the same.
