Cannabis Labels

Array ( [post_title] => Cannabis Labels [post_content] =>

 

In 1996 California became the first state to legalize medical cannabis. This sparked a trend that spread throughout most of the United States since. As more states are legalize the medical cannabis market has grown more then 310% globally within the past 4-5 years.

In 2012, Colorado and Washington became the first states to legalize cannabis for recreational use. Since then, other states have joined them, including Whitlam Groups home state of Michigan.

In 2019 the cannabis packaging market in the US was valued at $101.48 billion. By 2025 this market is expected to reach $297.51 billion. This is a 22.59% growth rate within a 6-year period.

As the medical and recreational cannabis markets grow rapidly it is necessary to have suitable packaging for your cannabis products. Due to various government regulations across the globe, the packaging of cannabis is of the upmost importance. Let’s look at some of the design and packaging trends within the cannabis market.

Green Packaging

One trend that we have noticed to be popular within the cannabis market is green packaging. Green packaging uses materials that are recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable.

Cannabis is promoted as on all-natural solutions so making sure the packaging is eco-friendly is important to promote an image of environmental consciousness. Some eco-friendly solutions include

Compliance Needs              

Making sure your packaging has shelf-appeal while complying with packaging laws is important when designing the right packaging solutions. While creative design is important for image appeal, complying with regulations and requirements are important for brand-trust.

Before designing your packaging product, it is important to check with your state regulations and other requirements for cannabis. It is important that before starting packaging production you share the regulations and requirements with your packaging manufacture.

Labeling requirements for cannabis products vary in each state, but there are general labeling requirements for all cannabis products. Products with more THC have a more pronounced testing and labeling requirements than products that are more marijuana-based.

One requirement for cannabis labels is that it must include the potency of marijuana and concentrates. This information can be displayed in two ways on a label. One way is to have the font be no smaller than 10-point font, bold, framed, and in a font that is at least two sizes bigger than the other label text. The second way is to have the font be no smaller than 10-point font, bold, framed, and highlighted with a bright noticeable color.

When displaying the percentage levels for cannabinoids on labels it should be shown by range and appear from lowest to highest concentration. All marijuana-infused products must also have a potency statement.

 Creative Design

 When designing cannabis packaging it is important to first know who your audience will be. The cannabis market is not a one-size-fits-all proposition though. Different demographics find different benefits from THC and CBD. Each consumer group is also split between using for health and wellness or for recreational purposes.

There is also a growing market for dog’s as well. Reports indicate that cannabis products for pets could reach a $1 billion industry by 2022.

It is important to create a design that will appeal to the demographic you want to target. If so you are targeting different demographics it is important to keep your design appealing to all. In order to keep your design sophisticated and appealing here are a few design characteristics to keep in mind:

Users should be able to distinguish between recreational and medicinal cannabis products. It is important to ensure that your design is appealing to consumers as well as having them be able to tell the difference between medicinal and recreational products by the design of the packaging.

Here are some design options that are associated with different demographic groups.

Luxury

A luxury design can be used for an upscale look. This can attract a more mature, discerning demographic. Some design aspects that we see with a luxury look include foil accents, subdued color palettes, simplified shapes, clean lines, and elegant typography.

Natural

This design trends show cases the natural aspect of cannabis products. This design can be used when targeting the more health-conscious demographic. Some ways you can create a natural design in your packaging and labels is by using earthly colors like greens and browns, and also using words/language that have a more natural feel such as “whole”, “raw”, and “organic.” For more information on other natural solutions read above on green packaging.

Minimalist

A minimalist design can give your brand a stylish, contemporary look that is subtle but still communicates the quality of your product. A Minimalist design can be portrayed as boring or plane but there are a few techniques that you can be creative with this type of design that can be very appealing. Making sure to only use 2 or 3 colors and using clean geometric shapes are known to be appealing and eye catching. This design can attract younger and new customers.

Health

Medical cannabis is legal in more states than recreational cannabis is which means there are more opportunity to tap into the medical cannabis market. Taking advantage of the medical aspect of your product by using medical or pharmaceutical symbols and colors can add legitimacy to your business and appeal to medical users. Highlighting the health benefits by adding statements like “pain relief,” or “anti-inflammatory” can also be appealing.

Cannabis Labels

 

In 1996 California became the first state to legalize medical cannabis. This sparked a trend that spread throughout most of the United States since. As more states are legalize the medical cannabis market has grown more then 310% globally within the past 4-5 years.

In 2012, Colorado and Washington became the first states to legalize cannabis for recreational use. Since then, other states have joined them, including Whitlam Groups home state of Michigan.

In 2019 the cannabis packaging market in the US was valued at $101.48 billion. By 2025 this market is expected to reach $297.51 billion. This is a 22.59% growth rate within a 6-year period.

As the medical and recreational cannabis markets grow rapidly it is necessary to have suitable packaging for your cannabis products. Due to various government regulations across the globe, the packaging of cannabis is of the upmost importance. Let’s look at some of the design and packaging trends within the cannabis market.

Green Packaging

One trend that we have noticed to be popular within the cannabis market is green packaging. Green packaging uses materials that are recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable.

Cannabis is promoted as on all-natural solutions so making sure the packaging is eco-friendly is important to promote an image of environmental consciousness. Some eco-friendly solutions include

Compliance Needs              

Making sure your packaging has shelf-appeal while complying with packaging laws is important when designing the right packaging solutions. While creative design is important for image appeal, complying with regulations and requirements are important for brand-trust.

Before designing your packaging product, it is important to check with your state regulations and other requirements for cannabis. It is important that before starting packaging production you share the regulations and requirements with your packaging manufacture.

Labeling requirements for cannabis products vary in each state, but there are general labeling requirements for all cannabis products. Products with more THC have a more pronounced testing and labeling requirements than products that are more marijuana-based.

One requirement for cannabis labels is that it must include the potency of marijuana and concentrates. This information can be displayed in two ways on a label. One way is to have the font be no smaller than 10-point font, bold, framed, and in a font that is at least two sizes bigger than the other label text. The second way is to have the font be no smaller than 10-point font, bold, framed, and highlighted with a bright noticeable color.

When displaying the percentage levels for cannabinoids on labels it should be shown by range and appear from lowest to highest concentration. All marijuana-infused products must also have a potency statement.

 Creative Design

 When designing cannabis packaging it is important to first know who your audience will be. The cannabis market is not a one-size-fits-all proposition though. Different demographics find different benefits from THC and CBD. Each consumer group is also split between using for health and wellness or for recreational purposes.

There is also a growing market for dog’s as well. Reports indicate that cannabis products for pets could reach a $1 billion industry by 2022.

It is important to create a design that will appeal to the demographic you want to target. If so you are targeting different demographics it is important to keep your design appealing to all. In order to keep your design sophisticated and appealing here are a few design characteristics to keep in mind:

Users should be able to distinguish between recreational and medicinal cannabis products. It is important to ensure that your design is appealing to consumers as well as having them be able to tell the difference between medicinal and recreational products by the design of the packaging.

Here are some design options that are associated with different demographic groups.

Luxury

A luxury design can be used for an upscale look. This can attract a more mature, discerning demographic. Some design aspects that we see with a luxury look include foil accents, subdued color palettes, simplified shapes, clean lines, and elegant typography.

Natural

This design trends show cases the natural aspect of cannabis products. This design can be used when targeting the more health-conscious demographic. Some ways you can create a natural design in your packaging and labels is by using earthly colors like greens and browns, and also using words/language that have a more natural feel such as “whole”, “raw”, and “organic.” For more information on other natural solutions read above on green packaging.

Minimalist

A minimalist design can give your brand a stylish, contemporary look that is subtle but still communicates the quality of your product. A Minimalist design can be portrayed as boring or plane but there are a few techniques that you can be creative with this type of design that can be very appealing. Making sure to only use 2 or 3 colors and using clean geometric shapes are known to be appealing and eye catching. This design can attract younger and new customers.

Health

Medical cannabis is legal in more states than recreational cannabis is which means there are more opportunity to tap into the medical cannabis market. Taking advantage of the medical aspect of your product by using medical or pharmaceutical symbols and colors can add legitimacy to your business and appeal to medical users. Highlighting the health benefits by adding statements like “pain relief,” or “anti-inflammatory” can also be appealing.

Weatherability

Array ( [post_title] => Weatherability [post_content] =>

Weatherability is the ability of a label to withstand the effects of outdoor weathering, sunlight, heat, cold, humidity, rain, snow, and time.

Some of the components, along with the weather, that effect the life of a label include the type of ink used, the base material and the top coating of the label, and what substate the material will adhere to.

Why Weatherability Matters

The weather can cause a label to peel off easy or by itself, lose color, become illegible, scratch, or fade completely. The problem is that these labels may have important information on them that is essential or important so therefore these labels need to last as long as the products they are on.

It is important for labels to remain legible for product information such as lot numbers, barcodes, instructions, safety warnings, and warranties.

Solutions

There is no one-fits all answer when it comes to weatherability because each situation and weather type is different for every label.

It is important to understand the different types of weather environments your label will be in and make sure to test your label and review the results before choosing the best solutions.

Different types of common weathering tests that are done are:

The final results will give you an evaluation on adhesion, legibility, color retention abrasion resistance and other properties. 

Why Whitlam

Whitlam has over 50 years of experience in the Automotive Industry we understand regulations and requirements of labels. With our In-House Lab we have the capabilities to test labels against some of these types of weather conditions. We have solutions that will help your label withstand the effects of outdoor weathering, sunlight, heat, cold, humidity, rain, and time.

Whitlam can offer solutions that are tougher, better and longer lasting. For more information contact Whitlam today!

Whitlam Core Values 

Array ( [post_title] => Whitlam Core Values  [post_content] =>

Whitlam was founded in 1957. Since that time Whitlam has gone by a fundamental principle that we call our Core Values. Our Core Values define who we are and what we stand for.

One of Whitlam’s core values is to be kind and respectful. To us this means celebrating our similarities AND our differences. We show kindness by exhibit friendliness to everyone who walks through our door or who we meet. We have respect for each other, suppliers, customers and business partners. When someone has a difference of opinion, we listen to them and are open to what they have to say. Whitlam exhibits patience and a kind attitude. We show empathy by putting ourselves in other peoples shows.

Secondly, Whitlam exhibits honesty and integrity by taking pride in our work. Here at Whitlam we aren’t afraid of failure because we learn from our mistakes. At Whitlam we do what we say we will do, and we follow through. If someone asks us a question that we don’t know we aren’t afraid to do research or ask someone else for help until we know the answer.

Thirdly we try our best to go above and beyond. This includes:

Teamwork is our fourth core value. We encourage teamwork and demonstrate a willingness to help others. We lift each other up and work together to find the best solutions.  We make sure to communicate often and clearly. We are helpful to everyone, especially for those that are new. Often, we celebrate one another and our achievements.

As many of us like to say:

“It takes a Village”

All these core values show through in our last core value which is customer focus. Customer focus is one of our most important values because our customers are very important to us and we put our customers first. Whitlam display’s a true commitment to excellence. We create strong partnership with our customers and strive to be a good active listener that are open to new ideas and changes. With our open-mindedness we make sure we understand the needs of others. Our customers can see our core values shine through because not only do we treat each other with kindness, respect, honesty and integrity but we make sure we follow through and treat our customers the same. Whitlam is a family and our customers are part of our family.

With Whitlam’s core values we make sure that we add value wherever we go, and with whomever we meet. Using our technical knowledge and experience we make the tough stuff easy. If you would like more information about Whitlam please contact us today!

Solutions for Galvanic Corrosion

Array ( [post_title] => Solutions for Galvanic Corrosion [post_content] =>

When two dissimilar metals are brought into electrical contact, Galvanic Corrosion occurs. The electrical contact of these two metals changes their individual corrosion rates. One of the dissimilar metals corrodes faster than it normally would by itself, while the other dissimilar metal corrodes slower than it would by itself. 

There are different weathering environments that can cause galvanic corrosion such as water, heat, humidity and more.

Other factures besides weathering environments can also play into the effects that cause galvanic corrosion such as the way they are assembled, what metals are involved, and more.

A great example of Galvanic Corrosion is the Statue of Liberty. In the 1980s during a regular maintenance check revealed that corrosion had accrued between the copper outer skin and the wrought iron support structure.

Galvanic Corrosion can also occur with dissimilar metals on a vehicle. When you have a spare tire that is located under a vehicle, the spare tire is mounted in a heat resistant shield. That shield is then mounted to the frame under a vehicle. The heat resistant shield and frame of the vehicle are two different metals. The mount where these two are mounted together can develop galvanic corrosion. There are solutions to prevent galvanic corrosion from occurring.

Whitlam engineering team has developed various solutions to help eliminate galvanic corrosion. With our In-House lab and R&D team we can test products and come up with the best solution for your products need. At Whitlam our goal is to make the tough stuff easy.

Let us help you, contact us today for more information.

Print and Apply – Finally as Simple as it Sounds. 

Many of our customers are faced with the same demands when it comes to labeling their secondary packaging:

Traditionally, labels would be applied to the side of a shipping case or tray, using a pneumatic or servo driven tamp arrangement. This method has provided excellent service over the years and it is still the most common process in use today.

Using a tamp applicator, while being simple and reliable, does have some drawbacks, though.

The label can only be printed while the tamp pad is in its home position. This means that there are parts of the application cycle where the printer is forced to be idle – reducing the maximum output of the labeler.

These systems usually need plant compressed air to operate them. With many of our customers looking to reduce their overall plant air usage, this is not ideal.

There can also be safety considerations with reciprocating parts operating at high speeds – it is difficult to ensure there are no pinch points.

PowerMerge™

To address some of these issues, ID Technology introduced PowerMerge.

Rather than using a tamp system to deliver the label to the product, as the label leaves the print engine, it travels on a driven belt where it is controlled by a flow of air (from a fan, not plant air) to the product.

PowerMerge provides some great advantages:

Once a label is printed and on the belt, the next label can start its own print process. This virtually eliminates and seat time in the print-apply, increasing output considerably.

Gaining time in the sequence also means that the printer can run at lower print speeds, even while maintaining high outputs. This provides better print quality and longer life of printer components.

However, while PowerMerge is often a big step forward compared to tamp applicators, it does have a couple of drawbacks.

Introducing CrossMerge™

CrossMerge brings our PowerMerge concept to another level.

Labels feed from the printer ib the most efficient orientation and then change direction to allow them to be wiped onto the product.

For our customers, there are some huge advantages of CrossMerge.

One of the (many) cool things about CrossMerge is that it can be installed on most existing ID Technology 252 or 255 labeling systems – make the most of your current investment.

The Art of Barcode Shaving

Array ( [post_title] => The Art of Barcode Shaving [post_content] =>

Okay, I’m not suggesting that your barcodes are looking a little scraggly and in need of getting their chins cleaned up. Barcode shaving (also often referred to as pixel shaving) is a way of tweaking your barcodes to get the best, verified print quality.

In this article I want to dig a little into this process and how it relates to printing two-dimensional barcodes when using inkjet printers.

When producing 2D barcodes such as DataMatrix or QR code to GS1 standards, it is obviously important that the data is correct, the structure of the encoded data is correct and the quality of the printed code meets the quality standard.

Typical GS1 DataMatrix Code

Getting the data correct is really the job of the organization that’s printing the barcode, after all, it is their data.

The structure of a GS1 barcode is defined in the GS1 general specification. It’s relatively easy to check that the structure of the data is correct in some cases using a simple smartphone application – I’ve discussed this several times elsewhere.

In the GS1 system, quality for 2D barcodes, such as data matrix and QR codes, is defined in the ISO/IEC 15416 standard.

To verify the quality of a barcode against the standard, a number of measurements are taken using a calibrated verifier. All of these measurements each produce an individual grade which is then combined into one single overall score.

One of these parameters is called print growth. This measures the size of the elements in the barcode and ensures they haven’t crept above the size they should be.

With a 2D DataMatrix barcode, as an example, each of the little squares that makes up the symbol should be exactly the same size, both the dark and light squares.

Look at these two examples:

One of them looks to be printed nice and darkly you – would think that it will be easy for a scanner to read and that its verification score will be good.

In the other example, the barcode looks somewhat lighter. Intuition tells us, that this one would be more difficult to read in the dark version and possibly would score less high in the verification

As it happens, both barcodes are easy to read with most barcode scanners – I can read them just fine with the Barcode Check app on my phone.

However, if you look more closely at the darker example, you’ll see that the darker squares are somewhat larger than the white ones – this is print growth.

What is Print Growth?

When printing with an inkjet printer, the image is produced of a number of very small individual drops of ink. The examples I’ve used were printed on our ClearMark Thermal Inkjet printer, set at 300 dots per inch in both the horizontal and vertical axis. Since the barcode is 0.5″ square, each size is 150 drops or pixels and the individual small squares that make up the barcode are 7 x 7 pixels.

As the drops of ink are sprayed onto the product, they dry quickly (assuming the ink is compatible with the substrate), but not instantly. There is often some time for the drops to spread a little before they set permanently, causing the elements on the image to be slightly larger than intended.

This is why when inspecting a DataMatrix or QR Code that has been printed using inkjet, the small squares that are printed are often too large as the ink spreads.

This is print growth – you can see in the darker example, that the black squares are infringing on the white ones – causing the white squares to be smaller, or even rectangular, rather than squares.

Print growth will downgrade the ISO score of your barcode – possibly to the extent that it fails verification.

So What’s The Solution?

In these situations, Barcode (or Pixel) Shaving is your friend.

With each of the small squares in my example barcode, our ID Technology and Code Tech TIJ printers (and our Greydon Genesis inkjet printers), allow pixels to be removed (shaved) from around each square. So I could make the elements of my barcode 6 x 6 pixels (instead of 7 x 7), but still centered in the same location. This allows the ink to spread a little in each barcode element, but still stay within its assigned overall area.

Using barcode shaving on our printers allows them to be fine-tuned to ensure the best verification scores for both DataMatrix and QR Codes. This is huge for customers who need to comply with GS1 standards, such as those in the medical of pharma industries.

 

Is it easy to set up?

Yes, this is easy to use on both our Code Tech and ClearMark printers.

Here is the setting screen on ClearMark. You simply set the amount of shaving as a percentage. There is a little trial and error involved, but the setting is saved with the message to remember for next time.

 

So Shaving is Good?

Yes – this feature can be the difference between passing or failing barcode verification. It is often well worth the time to spend a few minutes fine-tuning your barcode settings, to avoid potential problems in the future.

Okay, I’m not suggesting that your barcodes are looking a little scraggly and in need of getting their chins cleaned up. Barcode shaving (also often referred to as pixel shaving) is a way of tweaking your barcodes to get the best, verified print quality.

In this article I want to dig a little into this process and how it relates to printing two-dimensional barcodes when using inkjet printers.

When producing 2D barcodes such as DataMatrix or QR code to GS1 standards, it is obviously important that the data is correct, the structure of the encoded data is correct and the quality of the printed code meets the quality standard.

Typical GS1 DataMatrix Code

Getting the data correct is really the job of the organization that’s printing the barcode, after all, it is their data.

The structure of a GS1 barcode is defined in the GS1 general specification. It’s relatively easy to check that the structure of the data is correct in some cases using a simple smartphone application – I’ve discussed this several times elsewhere.

In the GS1 system, quality for 2D barcodes, such as data matrix and QR codes, is defined in the ISO/IEC 15416 standard.

To verify the quality of a barcode against the standard, a number of measurements are taken using a calibrated verifier. All of these measurements each produce an individual grade which is then combined into one single overall score.

One of these parameters is called print growth. This measures the size of the elements in the barcode and ensures they haven’t crept above the size they should be.

With a 2D DataMatrix barcode, as an example, each of the little squares that makes up the symbol should be exactly the same size, both the dark and light squares.

Look at these two examples:

One of them looks to be printed nice and darkly you – would think that it will be easy for a scanner to read and that its verification score will be good.

In the other example, the barcode looks somewhat lighter. Intuition tells us, that this one would be more difficult to read in the dark version and possibly would score less high in the verification

As it happens, both barcodes are easy to read with most barcode scanners – I can read them just fine with the Barcode Check app on my phone.

However, if you look more closely at the darker example, you’ll see that the darker squares are somewhat larger than the white ones – this is print growth.

Manage Your New Nutrition Labels

Array ( [post_title] => Manage Your New Nutrition Labels [post_content] =>

The new style, FDA approved, nutritional facts labels take effect next month.

The agency has stated that due to many companies int the food industry not being ready, enforcement will be delayed for six months, but this is still a good time to ensure you have a plan to be in compliance.

One of the reasons stated for the delay is that many food producers have a large number of existing printed labels in stock that need to be used up, and many have not finished the process of procuring labels to the new design.

One way to help with this problem (and to make managing many SKUs of nutrition labels much easier) is to invest in ID Technology’s labeling system, with optional print/apply head to print the nutrition information right on the label applicator at the time of use.

The 262 print/apply labeling head can be used as the bottom head on a top/bottom labeler or as a bottom only labeler in order to produce the completed printed nutrition label.

On a top/bottom set-up, this allows for the existing nicely printed digital or flexo label to be applied to the top of the package and the complete bottom label with allergen, ingredients and nutritional information be printed on the bottom label.

We recommend using NiceLabel label management to provide full control of the label designs and ensure that only the correct, approved label is printed every time.

Using this system can eliminate the need to source and manage multiple pre-printed label SKUs and prevent being left with inventories of obsolete labels when the copy on the label changes.

In addition, the 262 labeling head can also apply conventional printed labels, allowing our customers to use pre-printed labels for large volume products and the print/apply feature for smaller runs.

Our labeling systems are built in the USA and are designed to be easy to set-up, use and maintain.

Product Coding for Protein Producers

Array ( [post_title] => Product Coding for Protein Producers [post_content] =>

Regardless of package type, companies that produce meat or poultry products need to add variable information to the package. This includes date and lot codes, establishment codes, regulatory agency logos, and increasingly barcodes.

In many industries, this is quite straightforward, but for protein companies, there is the added complication of the environment in which coding and packaging equipment has to operate. Cold and wet conditions are the norm and any equipment brought into the plants needs to be able to handle this as well as washdown situations.

Traditionally continuous inkjet (CIJ) printers have been used for printing variable information onto meat and poultry packaging. These printers can usually handle the harsh conditions found on the packaging lines and also produce the print quality that is good enough for the applications. Thermal inkjet (TIJ) printers have not been used in the past due to the inks being unsuitable for use on the films used for the packaging.

inkjet printing for protein companies

Over the last few years, however, there have been great advances in the chemistry of inks for TIJ printing and today, this technology is proving to be very successful at printing onto the non-porous substrates used for protein packaging.

The ink cartridges used in thermal inkjet printers ensure that there is no need to have to deal with the MEK and other solvents used in other print technologies, such as CIJ. There is no need to deal with disposing of partially used ink or additive bottles.

With no cleaning cycle needed at startup or shutdown, a thermal inkjet printer is always ready to work.

The thermal inkjet coders provided by ProMach brands, Code Tech & ID Technology, are designed to be able to get the job done in these areas. They bring all the advantages of the thermal inkjet system but include models that are available in IP65 versions, perfect for producing excellent code quality every time, regardless of the environment.

 

Reduce Maintenance & Downtime

A thermal impact printer uses familiar HP type ink cartridges. This means that every time you change the cartridge, you effectively get a new printer.

As a bonus, should you need to change the color of your print, this is accomplished by simply replacing the ink cartridge with one of the required color.

Our TIJ printers come in versions that are built to IP65 environmental protection. This means that regardless of how dirty or wet the packaging environment, the printers will operate happily.

Exceptional Print Quality

With print resolutions of up to 600×600 DPI, thermal inkjet produces perfect prints every time, even when printing very small fonts or high-density barcodes.

Inks are available that are fast drying and durable to suit just about every packaging material.

Quick and Simple Installation and Integration

Thermal inkjet printers from ID Technology and Code Tech have a small footprint, making them easy to install in your parent packaging machine, even when multiple heads are needed.

Combined with the web handling and printer traversing expertise of the Greydon brand, printers from ProMach Labeling & Coding can be integrated with every type of flexible packaging machine.

Is TIJ Always the Best Technology to Use?

No, not always.

Thermal inkjet brings some important advantages, but there are times where an alternative technology such as CIJ printing, thermal transfer, laser or ink stamping might make sense. We happen to sell a complete range of coding technologies so we can work with you to help decide which is best for your unique needs.

Replacing images : inkjet printing for protein companies - inkjet printing for protein companies ON

Regardless of package type, companies that produce meat or poultry products need to add variable information to the package. This includes date and lot codes, establishment codes, regulatory agency logos, and increasingly barcodes.

In many industries, this is quite straightforward, but for protein companies, there is the added complication of the environment in which coding and packaging equipment has to operate. Cold and wet conditions are the norm and any equipment brought into the plants needs to be able to handle this as well as washdown situations.

Traditionally continuous inkjet (CIJ) printers have been used for printing variable information onto meat and poultry packaging. These printers can usually handle the harsh conditions found on the packaging lines and also produce the print quality that is good enough for the applications. Thermal inkjet (TIJ) printers have not been used in the past due to the inks being unsuitable for use on the films used for the packaging.

inkjet printing for protein companies

Over the last few years, however, there have been great advances in the chemistry of inks for TIJ printing and today, this technology is proving to be very successful at printing onto the non-porous substrates used for protein packaging.

The ink cartridges used in thermal inkjet printers ensure that there is no need to have to deal with the MEK and other solvents used in other print technologies, such as CIJ. There is no need to deal with disposing of partially used ink or additive bottles.

With no cleaning cycle needed at startup or shutdown, a thermal inkjet printer is always ready to work.

The thermal inkjet coders provided by ProMach brands, Code Tech & ID Technology, are designed to be able to get the job done in these areas. They bring all the advantages of the thermal inkjet system but include models that are available in IP65 versions, perfect for producing excellent code quality every time, regardless of the environment.

 

Reduce Maintenance & Downtime

A thermal impact printer uses familiar HP type ink cartridges. This means that every time you change the cartridge, you effectively get a new printer.

As a bonus, should you need to change the color of your print, this is accomplished by simply replacing the ink cartridge with one of the required color.

Our TIJ printers come in versions that are built to IP65 environmental protection. This means that regardless of how dirty or wet the packaging environment, the printers will operate happily.

Exceptional Print Quality

With print resolutions of up to 600×600 DPI, thermal inkjet produces perfect prints every time, even when printing very small fonts or high-density barcodes.

Inks are available that are fast drying and durable to suit just about every packaging material.

Quick and Simple Installation and Integration

Thermal inkjet printers from ID Technology and Code Tech have a small footprint, making them easy to install in your parent packaging machine, even when multiple heads are needed.

Combined with the web handling and printer traversing expertise of the Greydon brand, printers from ProMach Labeling & Coding can be integrated with every type of flexible packaging machine.

Is TIJ Always the Best Technology to Use?

No, not always.

Thermal inkjet brings some important advantages, but there are times where an alternative technology such as CIJ printing, thermal transfer, laser or ink stamping might make sense. We happen to sell a complete range of coding technologies so we can work with you to help decide which is best for your unique needs.

Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link

Array ( [post_title] => Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link [post_content] =>

Using barcodes on packages for customer engagement? This idea is certainly not new – here is a link to a Packaging World article on this very topic from 2011.

The article specifically mentioned that QR codes would provide the ability to download coupons, enter contests, play games, and other fun activities – all powered by those little barcodes.

This all seemed quite exciting, but QR codes got old quickly and the concept seemed to fade away.

Fast forward to today and there is renewed interest in using packaging to actively engage with customers.

Listen to our GS1 Digital Link Podcast

Traditional ways to communicate to customers such as TV and print advertising are not performing as well as In the past.  These are also a one-way form of communication, yelling a message at consumers – no wonder they don’t work as well as in the past. In addition, engagement on a brand’s social media pages is in decline as well. What is a marketer to do?

As a result of all this, brand owners have a renewed interest trying to set up a direct connection to their customers based on the product packaging – the package is potentially the ultimate marketing tool.
Enter smart packaging – a means to allow brands to connect directly with their customers. Generally, a smart package will allow the customer to scan a barcode (yes, usually a QR Code) and be connected to an interactive website.

So QR codes are back – a lot of brands are using them – some quite creatively

Currently, there isn’t a standard to use QR codes  (or any type of barcode) for customer engagement so brands are tending to encode them in different ways – often just a URL, sometimes other data.
Of course, the package’s UPC  barcode still needs to be there so most items would have to have multiple barcodes – rather messy and takes up more space on the package.
The product UPC codes scanned at the point of sale haven’t really changed in the 45 years since the concept was introduced.

Wouldn’t it be great if, rather than have multiple barcodes on a package, a single one could contain the UPC data, weblink for customer engagement? Maybe we can!

Last year GS1 our favorite standards organization came out with a new concept: GS1 Digital Link.

While the name might not be too exciting, Digital Link has the potential to revolutionize how barcoding is used, to add true customer engagement and to (yes really) provide item-level serialization and traceability.
For primary packaging (what we would buy in a store), GS1’s barcoding is built around the concept of the Global Trade Item Number – GTIN. This is what is encoded in the common UPC barcode that is scanned at the checkout.
The GTIN in the item barcode basically consists of a company prefix and an SKU or stock keeping unit number. The GTIN identifies a type of product – a 12oz can of Pepsi Cola or an 8 oz bag of salt n vinegar Lay’s chips for example. Every item sold at retail and many other products that use the GS1 system (such as pharmaceutical or medical products) has a GTIN.
It is important to note that a GTIN doesn’t identify an individual item – every 12oz can of Pepsi will have the same GTIN.
Also, no additional data can be encoded in the product barcode – only the 12 digit UPC in the US or 13 digit EAN code internationally. This is why additional barcodes must currently be added to a package in the event a brand owner wants to encode more data.
Traditionally, barcodes in the GS1 system have been used in the supply chain from manufacturer to point of sale. They lose their usefulness once the product has been sold. GS1 Digital Link promises to extend the reach of the GS1 system all the way from the manufacturer to consumer and to provide a means of interaction between the brand owner and the consumer.

So how does it work?

For the first time, GS1 is allowing a 2D QR barcode to be used as the barcode for point of sale.
Encoded within the barcode is a URI (unique resource identifier – an example of which is the familiar website URLs we use every day) and a number of other possible data fields that include:
GTIN
Lot number
Serial number
The expiration date and many more
Some examples:
Note, the examples use the domain id.gs1.org, but brand owners can use their own domains.
An interesting addition to the new specification is that the data fields can be identified by either using the familiar GS1 Application Identifiers (AI) or by text identifiers. Note that this is only a quick intro, so check out the GS1 Digital Link specification to get complete information.
  The ability to include all this data in one barcode means that only one barcode needs to be printed on the package and it can be used for point of sale, traceability, anti-counterfeit and for customer engagement by sending a consumer who scans the code to an interactive website.
GS1 Digital Link could prove to be the biggest revolution in barcoding since the first code was scanned in a store 45 years ago.

When will this start?

It is going to take a while and we can expect to see both traditional UPC codes and the new QR codes used side by side until the infrastructure is in place to handle the new 2D barcodes.
 A survey carried out by the food marketing institute found that in the US nearly 40% of POS scanners are capable of reading 2D codes today and that will increase to about 55% by 2022.
The POS systems to handle the data are running somewhat behind, with an estimated 20% of systems being able to handle this data.
There is clearly a ways to go.
In the same survey, stakeholders saw the advantages of switching to data-rich solutions such as follows:
60% stated better inventory accuracy
40% stated better customer engagement
36% stated anti-counterfeit
35% stated improved recall control
33% stated expiration date control
* Yes, people could choose more than one.
Finally, 85% of stakeholders see 3-5 years to get a higher data density solution to the current UPC established.
So there is certainly a lot of interest in GS1 Digital Link. While I’ve discussed the use of QR codes in this podcast, other data carriers that could be used (and be very interesting) are NFC RFID tags and the Digimarc system that turns the complete package into the barcode. Digimarc will be the topic of a future podcast.
Should be interesting days ahead.

When will this start?

It is going to take a while and we can expect to see both traditional UPC codes and the new QR codes used side by side until the infrastructure is in place to handle the new 2D barcodes.
 A survey carried out by the food marketing institute found that in the US nearly 40% of POS scanners are capable of reading 2D codes today and that will increase to about 55% by 2022.
The POS systems to handle the data are running somewhat behind, with an estimated 20% of systems being able to handle this data.
There is clearly a ways to go.
In the same survey, stakeholders saw the advantages of switching to data-rich solutions such as follows:
60% stated better inventory accuracy
40% stated better customer engagement
36% stated anti-counterfeit
35% stated improved recall control
33% stated expiration date control
* Yes, people could choose more than one.
Finally, 85% of stakeholders see 3-5 years to get a higher data density solution to the current UPC established.
So there is certainly a lot of interest in GS1 Digital Link. While I’ve discussed the use of QR codes in this podcast, other data carriers that could be used (and be very interesting) are NFC RFID tags and the Digimarc system that turns the complete package into the barcode. Digimarc will be the topic of a future podcast.
Should be interesting days ahead.

Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link

Using barcodes on packages for customer engagement? This idea is certainly not new – here is a link to a Packaging World article on this very topic from 2011.

The article specifically mentioned that QR codes would provide the ability to download coupons, enter contests, play games, and other fun activities – all powered by those little barcodes.

This all seemed quite exciting, but QR codes got old quickly and the concept seemed to fade away.

Fast forward to today and there is renewed interest in using packaging to actively engage with customers.

Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link

Listen to our GS1 Digital Link Podcast

Traditional ways to communicate to customers such as TV and print advertising are not performing as well as In the past.  These are also a one-way form of communication, yelling a message at consumers – no wonder they don’t work as well as in the past. In addition, engagement on a brand’s social media pages is in decline as well. What is a marketer to do?

As a result of all this, brand owners have a renewed interest trying to set up a direct connection to their customers based on the product packaging – the package is potentially the ultimate marketing tool.
Enter smart packaging – a means to allow brands to connect directly with their customers. Generally, a smart package will allow the customer to scan a barcode (yes, usually a QR Code) and be connected to an interactive website.

So QR codes are back – a lot of brands are using them – some quite creatively

Currently, there isn’t a standard to use QR codes  (or any type of barcode) for customer engagement so brands are tending to encode them in different ways – often just a URL, sometimes other data.
Of course, the package’s UPC  barcode still needs to be there so most items would have to have multiple barcodes – rather messy and takes up more space on the package.
The product UPC codes scanned at the point of sale haven’t really changed in the 45 years since the concept was introduced.

Wouldn’t it be great if, rather than have multiple barcodes on a package, a single one could contain the UPC data, weblink for customer engagement? Maybe we can!

Last year GS1 our favorite standards organization came out with a new concept: GS1 Digital Link.

While the name might not be too exciting, Digital Link has the potential to revolutionize how barcoding is used, to add true customer engagement and to (yes really) provide item-level serialization and traceability.
For primary packaging (what we would buy in a store), GS1’s barcoding is built around the concept of the Global Trade Item Number – GTIN. This is what is encoded in the common UPC barcode that is scanned at the checkout.
The GTIN in the item barcode basically consists of a company prefix and an SKU or stock keeping unit number. The GTIN identifies a type of product – a 12oz can of Pepsi Cola or an 8 oz bag of salt n vinegar Lay’s chips for example. Every item sold at retail and many other products that use the GS1 system (such as pharmaceutical or medical products) has a GTIN.
It is important to note that a GTIN doesn’t identify an individual item – every 12oz can of Pepsi will have the same GTIN.
Also, no additional data can be encoded in the product barcode – only the 12 digit UPC in the US or 13 digit EAN code internationally. This is why additional barcodes must currently be added to a package in the event a brand owner wants to encode more data.
Traditionally, barcodes in the GS1 system have been used in the supply chain from manufacturer to point of sale. They lose their usefulness once the product has been sold. GS1 Digital Link promises to extend the reach of the GS1 system all the way from the manufacturer to consumer and to provide a means of interaction between the brand owner and the consumer.

So how does it work?

For the first time, GS1 is allowing a 2D QR barcode to be used as the barcode for point of sale.
Encoded within the barcode is a URI (unique resource identifier – an example of which is the familiar website URLs we use every day) and a number of other possible data fields that include:
GTIN
Lot number
Serial number
The expiration date and many more
Some examples:
Note, the examples use the domain id.gs1.org, but brand owners can use their own domains.
An interesting addition to the new specification is that the data fields can be identified by either using the familiar GS1 Application Identifiers (AI) or by text identifiers. Note that this is only a quick intro, so check out the GS1 Digital Link specification to get complete information.
  The ability to include all this data in one barcode means that only one barcode needs to be printed on the package and it can be used for point of sale, traceability, anti-counterfeit and for customer engagement by sending a consumer who scans the code to an interactive website.
GS1 Digital Link could prove to be the biggest revolution in barcoding since the first code was scanned in a store 45 years ago.

End of Parts & Service – SATO Printers

Array ( [post_title] => End of Parts & Service – SATO Printers [post_content] =>

As companies improve their products and introduce new models, earlier generations are discontinued and eventually can no longer be supported.

I recently received a reminder from SATO that some of their legacy models have reached the end of their service/support period.

Included are the following models:

SATO EOS

 

You can see the original SATO end of service notice here: SATO EOS Doc

Most users of these printers have already upgraded to current models, but if you happen to still be using any of these models, please note that by the end of August, service will end and spare parts will be limited until the end of the year, after which they can’t be ordered.

What Should You Do?

If you do use any of these discontinued printers, it is best to upgrade to a new  SATO CLNX printer. The new model has a lot of advantages and is designed to be a simple replacement for older printers. SATO also has a special trade-in program for the legacy printers that you can take advantage of. ID Technology can help you with every step of this process.

As companies improve their products and introduce new models, earlier generations are discontinued and eventually can no longer be supported.

I recently received a reminder from SATO that some of their legacy models have reached the end of their service/support period.

Included are the following models:

SATO EOS

 

You can see the original SATO end of service notice here: SATO EOS Doc

Most users of these printers have already upgraded to current models, but if you happen to still be using any of these models, please note that by the end of August, service will end and spare parts will be limited until the end of the year, after which they can’t be ordered.

What Should You Do?

If you do use any of these discontinued printers, it is best to upgrade to a new  SATO CLNX printer. The new model has a lot of advantages and is designed to be a simple replacement for older printers. SATO also has a special trade-in program for the legacy printers that you can take advantage of. ID Technology can help you with every step of this process.

Podcast – Lasers and Sustainability

Array ( [post_title] => Podcast – Lasers and Sustainability [post_content] =>

The Labeling News PodcastOur most recent podcast covered two topics:

The Loop waste-free packaging concept and how laser coding can help brands meet their sustainability targets.

In this episode I take advantage of a visit to Macsa ID in Barcelona, to chat with Macsa’s CEO Jordi Pinot on the topic of sustainability in packaging and how laser coding can help companies meet their sustainability goals.

Before this, there is a quick update on the Loop circular packaging system. Kroger is now a Loop partner here in the US as well as Walgreens. I’m still somewhat skeptical about this, but it does seem to be making progress.

Loop Waste Free Packaging Concept

On the topic of lasers for coding and marking products, Macsa has a very complete line up of laser systems for just about every application – see more info here: https://www.idtechnology.com/products/coding-solutions/laser-coders/

Laser Coding Can Help Meet Sustainability Targets

In the podcast, we discuss how laser coding allows for permanent prints to be added to all kinds of products. Lasers use no inks or solvents, making them an environmentally friendly way to add date and traceability codes as well as barcodes to many types of packaging materials.

Product Handling Considerations for Barcoding on Shipping Cases

Array ( [post_title] => Product Handling Considerations for Barcoding on Shipping Cases [post_content] =>

Using inkjet printers to add variable information to shipping cases, is increasing in popularity. Using this technique can dramatically reduce the number of pre-printed items that need to be managed and fit into company efforts to increase digitalization and move to a lean workflow.

Here at ID Technology, we have a lot of experience when it comes to installing inkjet systems for printing barcodes, text and graphics onto corrugated cases. We are a founding distributor of the FoxJet ProSeries system and have won the prestigious Regency Award for top FoxJet distributor for 14 consecutive years.

If there is one thing we’ve learned over this time, it’s that having good product handling is as important as having good printing equipment for getting the high-quality, compliant GS1 barcodes that customers demand. If the boxes are not presented consistently and accurately to the printheads, this will show in poor print quality and in particular will not allow high-quality barcodes to be printed.

To help educate users on best practices for product handling, our friends at FoxJet recently produced a detailed whitepaper on this topic that goes over many of the issues that are important to ensure great quality printing every time.

FoxJet ProSeries Printers

The whitepaper the transition from the case taper or sealer to the conveyor where the barcode printers are installed as being an area of crucial importance. Because space is often limited on packaging lines, the printheads often have to be installed very close to the exit of the case sealer. Some important factors are:

Carton Control – Proximity to the Printhead

It is important that after leaving the case sealer, the boxes are correctly presented the correct distance from the printheads. The drops of ink that are fired from the printheads can only travel a short distance while maintaining accuracy. If the box is too far away, print quality will decline and if so close it hits the printhead, damage might occur.

Be sure to control the boxes gently so that the boxes are undamaged as they pass through your packaging processes.

It’s best to use guide rails to accurately control the position of the box and even better use in conjunction with FoxJet’s retracting printhead brackets. This bracket uses a roller allow the printhead to be the correct distance from the box every time.

Product/Conveyor Speed

Ensure that boxes leaving your case sealer are traveling at a speed that is within the limits of your inkjet printer. Our FoxJet ProSeries printheads are able to print high-quality text, barcodes and images at up to 300ft per minute, which is enough for all but the fastest production lines.

Angel Hair

No, we are not talking pasta here! Some case sealing machines use hot melt adhesive to hold the flaps on the boxes closed. At times the adhesive applicators can leave a stringy residue behind that can get stuck to the printheads and block the tiny nozzles. Dust from the corrugated boxes can be bad too – be sure to regularly clean your packaging equipment and the printheads.

Vibrations

Good quality printing depends on the boxes being transferred smoothly past the printheads. Make sure your conveyor belt runs smoothly and that you are not dropping boxes onto the conveyor where the printheads are mounted. We’ve seen this happen and the results are not always pretty!

Best Practice of All

The best way to get the best labeling or coding for your shipping cases is to connect with your local ID Technology representative. With many years of experience, combined with the case packing, sealing and product handling of ProMach, we are able to help you determine the best solution for all your case coding or labeling needs.

Product Handling Considerations for Barcoding on Shipping CasesUsing inkjet printers to add variable information to shipping cases, is increasing in popularity. Using this technique can dramatically reduce the number of pre-printed items that need to be managed and fit into company efforts to increase digitalization and move to a lean workflow.

Here at ID Technology, we have a lot of experience when it comes to installing inkjet systems for printing barcodes, text and graphics onto corrugated cases. We are a founding distributor of the Product Handling Considerations for Barcoding on Shipping CasesFoxJet ProSeries system and have won the prestigious Regency Award for top FoxJet distributor for 14 consecutive years.

If there is one thing we’ve learned over this time, it’s that having good product handling is as important as having good printing equipment for getting the high-quality, compliant GS1 barcodes that customers demand. If the boxes are not presented consistently and accurately to the printheads, this will show in poor print quality and in particular will not allow high-quality barcodes to be printed.

To help educate users on best practices for product handling, our friends at FoxJet recently produced a detailed whitepaper on this topic that goes over many of the issues that are important to ensure great quality printing every time.

FoxJet ProSeries Printers

The whitepaper the transition from the case taper or sealer to the conveyor where the barcode printers are installed as being an area of crucial importance. Because space is often limited on packaging lines, the printheads often have to be installed very close to the exit of the case sealer. Some important factors are:

Carton Control – Proximity to the Printhead

It is important that after leaving the case sealer, the boxes are correctly presented the correct distance from the printheads. The drops of ink that are fired from the printheads can only travel a short distance while maintaining accuracy. If the box is too far away, print quality will decline and if so close it hits the printhead, damage might occur.

Be sure to control the boxes gently so that the boxes are undamaged as they pass through your packaging processes.

It’s best to use guide rails to accurately control the position of the box and even better use in conjunction with FoxJet’s retracting printhead brackets. This bracket uses a roller allow the printhead to be the correct distance from the box every time.

Product/Conveyor Speed

Ensure that boxes leaving your case sealer are traveling at a speed that is within the limits of your inkjet printer. Our FoxJet ProSeries printheads are able to print high-quality text, barcodes and images at up to 300ft per minute, which is enough for all but the fastest production lines.

Angel Hair

No, we are not talking pasta here! Some case sealing machines use hot melt adhesive to hold the flaps on the boxes closed. At times the adhesive applicators can leave a stringy residue behind that can get stuck to the printheads and block the tiny nozzles. Dust from the corrugated boxes can be bad too – be sure to regularly clean your packaging equipment and the printheads.

Vibrations

Good quality printing depends on the boxes being transferred smoothly past the printheads. Make sure your conveyor belt runs smoothly and that you are not dropping boxes onto the conveyor where the printheads are mounted. We’ve seen this happen and the results are not always pretty!
