THERMAL-TRANSFER PRINTING

Array ( [post_title] => THERMAL-TRANSFER PRINTING [post_content] =>

When on demand printing is required, thermal-transfer printing is a great option.

Thermal-transfer printing is a digital printing method. In this process the coating of a material called “ribbon” is melted onto another material such as paper.

Markets

Thermal-transfer printing can be used in many markets such as Healthcare, Transportation, Retail, Manufacturing, Food/Beverage, Automotive, Chemical, Industrial, Durable Goods, Electronics, and more.

Some different types of labels used in these markets include:

Two Factors

Print darkness and speed are the two factors that determine how a thermal-transfer label is printed. The print darkness tells the print head how much heat to use when burning the dots of the ribbon onto the material. The speed determines how fast the print head must heat up to burn the dots onto the material. Durability and quality are effect by print darkness and speed.

Three Components

Three components in thermal-transfer printing are: a non-movable print head, a ribbon (the ink), and material to be printed on. These three components sandwich the ribbon in the middle. When the print head heats up to a desired temperature, the print head melts the ribbon, in the form of dots, on to the material. Once the dot is transferred from the ribbon to the material it immediately cools down and by the time the material comes out of the printer the ink is dry.

Printers and Ribbons

There are different types of thermal-transfer printers that vary in durability, performance, and design capabilities. The ribbon used in these printers can be either wax, resin, or a combination of both. Ribbons can come in many different colors. Your choice of ribbon determines what material you can use. Different ribbons are used for different types of application and have different benefits. Durability and quality change based on the type of ribbon and printer used.

Labels printed on a thermal-transfer printer can be pre-printed with company logo or static information. Once a label is needed, the variable information can be printed on demand. Paper or synthetic materials can be used for the thermal-transfer printing process.

Some recommended paper materials include:

Some recommended synthetic materials include:

The print head along with the properties of the ribbon essentially produce a high-quality printed image. When durability and quality matter, thermal-transfer printing is a great solution. For more information contact Whitlam Group today!

When on demand printing is required, thermal-transfer printing is a great option.

Thermal-transfer printing is a digital printing method. In this process the coating of a material called “ribbon” is melted onto another material such as paper.

Markets

Thermal-transfer printing can be used in many markets such as Healthcare, Transportation, Retail, Manufacturing, Food/Beverage, Automotive, Chemical, Industrial, Durable Goods, Electronics, and more.

Some different types of labels used in these markets include:

Two Factors

Print darkness and speed are the two factors that determine how a thermal-transfer label is printed. The print darkness tells the print head how much heat to use when burning the dots of the ribbon onto the material. The speed determines how fast the print head must heat up to burn the dots onto the material. Durability and quality are effect by print darkness and speed.

Three Components

Three components in thermal-transfer printing are: a non-movable print head, a ribbon (the ink), and material to be printed on. These three components sandwich the ribbon in the middle. When the print head heats up to a desired temperature, the print head melts the ribbon, in the form of dots, on to the material. Once the dot is transferred from the ribbon to the material it immediately cools down and by the time the material comes out of the printer the ink is dry.

Printers and Ribbons

There are different types of thermal-transfer printers that vary in durability, performance, and design capabilities. The ribbon used in these printers can be either wax, resin, or a combination of both. Ribbons can come in many different colors. Your choice of ribbon determines what material you can use. Different ribbons are used for different types of application and have different benefits. Durability and quality change based on the type of ribbon and printer used.

Labels printed on a thermal-transfer printer can be pre-printed with company logo or static information. Once a label is needed, the variable information can be printed on demand. Paper or synthetic materials can be used for the thermal-transfer printing process.

Some recommended paper materials include:

Some recommended synthetic materials include:

The print head along with the properties of the ribbon essentially produce a high-quality printed image. When durability and quality matter, thermal-transfer printing is a great solution. For more information contact Whitlam Group today!

COLD FOIL VS HOT FOIL

Array ( [post_title] => COLD FOIL VS HOT FOIL [post_content] =>

Integrating foil on your labels can draw consumers eyes to your product and take your brand to a more luxurious level. Cold foil transfer and hot stamping are two ways you can integrate foil onto your label design. 

The two main differences between cold foil and hot foil are the way they are applied and the materials which they can be applied to. Even though the appearance of hot foil and cold foil is slightly different, the difference is almost unrecognizable.

Cold Foil

Cold foil is applied by printing a UV-curable adhesive in the desired areas that you want the foil. Then foil is applied to the adhesive immediately, completely covering it. The foil is stripped away but remains only in the areas where the adhesive was applied. Lastly, the labels are run under a UV light to completely cure the adhesive. The process of removing the access foil from the label makes this method less suitable for designs with fine details.

Hot Foil

Hot foil requires a metal die or stamp. This metal die is made in reverse image of where the foil will be in the design. The metal die is mounted above the label on press and heated. The foil material runs between the mounted metal die and the label. The metal die stamps or presses down on the foil using the heat to apply the foil to the label. Hot foil can be used with other printing techniques like embossing and is a better technique to use with fine details.

Economics

Cold foil is more affordable and less costly as hot foil. The main price difference that make cold foil more affordable is the price of the metal die used for hot foil. Cold foil also can be done in a shorter timeline because metal dies can take about two weeks to receive. Another options that may be more affordable is printing your label on a metallic material instead of applying foil to a label. Even though the appearance of printing on metallic materials is different than applying a foil it can give the same appeal.

Make your products packaging stand out on store shelves by adding metallic paper or films, inks, or hot stamping/cold foiling to your label design. Contact Whitlam Group today and we can help engineer your label and find the best solution with your design.

Scratch Off

Array ( [post_title] => Scratch Off [post_content] =>

Everyone is familiar with scratch off cards and how they work. The fun begins when you purchase a scratch off card, and you know that there is a possibility that you may win an awesome prize. We all hope to be the winner, but the excitement involved in whether you will be the lucky winner is what makes scratch offs so much fun.

In today’s online society it is hard for businesses to keep customers visiting their stores. One marketing strategy that will help keep customer engaged, and make you memorable is promotional scratch off cards. Fun promotional items, like scratch off cards, can bring customer to your business. They allow shoppers to have fun while shopping.

How to get Started

Scratch offs don’t have to be in a card form. They can be in a label or tag form as well. They can include anything under the surface of the scratch off, including text, codes, images or barcodes. You can be as creative as your mind will allow. Here are some things to consider when designing your scratch off label.

  1. What kind of different promotions do you want to do and how many of each? (discounts, giveaways, etc.)
  2. When will your promotion run?
  3. How long will they have to redeem their prize?
  4. Will everyone be a winner?
  5. How will you hand out the scratch off labels?
  6. Do you want them to be labels, tags or cards?
  7. How many do you want to hand out and where?
  8. What other information do you want on your label besides the scratch off?
  9. What do you want the message of your label to say under and around the scratch off area?
  10. What kind of label specifications do you have? (size, substrate, color, etc.)

Scratch off messages can be as simple as “Winner” or “Try Again” and as complex as various longer messages or images. Here are some ideas for promotional scratch off labels:

  1. Size or quantity upgrade
  2. Money/percent off on product/service
  3. Free product/service
  4. Buy one, get one offers
  5. Complimentary service upgrade
  6. Free estimation on service

Scratch off cards can even be used internally to help build up employee moral or at company events. Here are some ideas for internal company use:

  1. Cash bonus
  2. Extra PTO time
  3. Giveaway prizes
  4. Lunch on the company
  5. Boss for a day

New Nutrition Facts Regulations 2020

Array ( [post_title] => New Nutrition Facts Regulations 2020 [post_content] =>

What You Need to Know

In May 2016 the FDA published new rules for the Nutrition Facts label for packaged foods. The new rules reflect new scientific information that links consumers diet to chronic diseases. The new rules will change the information on the Nutrition Facts label allowing consumers to make better informed food choices.

Even though the new rules and changes were published in 2016, the FDA gave manufactures dates of when theses changes need to be completed by. As 2020 approaches some of those dates are getting closer and manufactures need to be aware that by these indicated dates the new Nutrition Facts label needs to be updated on their products.

What are the Changes

The overall look of the Nutrition Facts label is remaining the same but there are some important updates to be aware of. These changes include:

  1. Increase type size for “Calories,” “serving per container,” and “Serving size” declaration.
  2. Bolding the number of calories and the “Serving size” declaration.
  3. Declaring the actual amount, in addition to percent Daily Value of Vitamin D, calcium, iron and potassium.
  4. The footnote is changing and should now read: “*The % Daily Value tells you how much a nutrient in a serving of food contributes to a daily diet. 2,000 calories a day is used for general nutrition advice.”
  5. “Added sugars” should now include the amount in grams and in percent daily value.
  6. The list of nutrients is changing to Vitamin D, potassium, calcium and iron.
  7. Vitamin A and C are no longer required but if manufactures wish to list more nutrients, they can include more then just the four required.
  8. “Total fat,” “Saturated Fat,” and “Trans Fat” are still required but the “Calories from Fat” is being removed.
  9. Daily values of nutrients like sodium, dietary fiber and Vitamin D are being updated based on new scientific evidence.
  10. Serving sizes are being updated because they have changed since the last serving size requirements were published.
  11. Packaging that is between one and two servings will be required to be labeled as one serving.
  12. Certain products that are require a “dual column” if they are larger than one serving but could be consumed in one serving or multiple servings The “dual column” will indicated the amount of calories and nutrients on both a “per serving” and “per package”/”per unit” basis.

Why the Change

The current Nutrition Facts label is more then 20 years old. The last requirements were published in 1993. Based on updated scientific research, new nutrition and public health research, more recent dietary recommendations from expert groups and input from the public, the FDA has updated the requirements. The updates will give consumers access to more recent and accurate nutritional information about the foods they are eating.

Dates to know

The Following dates were set by the FDA. Manufactures have until theses dates to comply.

How to Get Your Product Tested to Ensure Proper Changes are Made

If you would like more information on the new Nutrition Facts label rules, visit the FDA website. Make sure that you have the right information on your products Nutrition Facts label by getting a sample of your product tested at an FDA certified laboratory. The names and locations of appropriate laboratories can be found in publications such as, Association of Official Analytical Chemists (AOAC), the American Association of Cereal Chemists (AACC), the American Oil Chemists Society (AOCS), and the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), and other numerous trade journals and similar publications.

New Nutrition Facts Regulations 2020What You Need to Know

In May 2016 the FDA published new rules for the Nutrition Facts label for packaged foods. The new rules reflect new scientific information that links consumers diet to chronic diseases. The new rules will change the information on the Nutrition Facts label allowing consumers to make better informed food choices.

Even though the new rules and changes were published in 2016, the FDA gave manufactures dates of when theses changes need to be completed by. As 2020 approaches some of those dates are getting closer and manufactures need to be aware that by these indicated dates the new Nutrition Facts label needs to be updated on their products.

What are the Changes

The overall look of the Nutrition Facts label is remaining the same but there are some important updates to be aware of. These changes include:

  1. Increase type size for “Calories,” “serving per container,” and “Serving size” declaration.
  2. Bolding the number of calories and the “Serving size” declaration.
  3. Declaring the actual amount, in addition to percent Daily Value of Vitamin D, calcium, iron and potassium.
  4. The footnote is changing and should now read: “*The % Daily Value tells you how much a nutrient in a serving of food contributes to a daily diet. 2,000 calories a day is used for general nutrition advice.”
  5. “Added sugars” should now include the amount in grams and in percent daily value.
  6. The list of nutrients is changing to Vitamin D, potassium, calcium and iron.
  7. Vitamin A and C are no longer required but if manufactures wish to list more nutrients, they can include more then just the four required.
  8. “Total fat,” “Saturated Fat,” and “Trans Fat” are still required but the “Calories from Fat” is being removed.
  9. Daily values of nutrients like sodium, dietary fiber and Vitamin D are being updated based on new scientific evidence.
  10. Serving sizes are being updated because they have changed since the last serving size requirements were published.
  11. Packaging that is between one and two servings will be required to be labeled as one serving.
  12. Certain products that are require a “dual column” if they are larger than one serving but could be consumed in one serving or multiple servings The “dual column” will indicated the amount of calories and nutrients on both a “per serving” and “per package”/”per unit” basis.

Why the Change

The current Nutrition Facts label is more then 20 years old. The last requirements were published in 1993. Based on updated scientific research, new nutrition and public health research, more recent dietary recommendations from expert groups and input from the public, the FDA has updated the requirements. The updates will give consumers access to more recent and accurate nutritional information about the foods they are eating.

Dates to know

The Following dates were set by the FDA. Manufactures have until theses dates to comply.

How to Get Your Product Tested to Ensure Proper Changes are Made

If you would like more information on the new Nutrition Facts label rules, visit the FDA website. Make sure that you have the right information on your products Nutrition Facts label by getting a sample of your product tested at an FDA certified laboratory. The names and locations of appropriate laboratories can be found in publications such as, Association of Official Analytical Chemists (AOAC), the American Association of Cereal Chemists (AACC), the American Oil Chemists Society (AOCS), and the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), and other numerous trade journals and similar publications. Michigan State University has laboratories with the capability of testing food to get the information needed for Nutrition Facts labels.

Reduce Bubbling for Durable Labels

Array ( [post_title] => Reduce Bubbling for Durable Labels [post_content] =>

What are Egress Labels?

Wrinkles in bubbles in labels can affect a products appearance. Bubbling issues can occur with injection-molded plastics products. These products are commonly used in the durable goods industry.

Air Egress labels allow air to flow freely between a product and a label. This allows air from outgassing and entrapment to escape quickly. This process is created in the substrate using a micro-embossed texture to create an even finish. This complex texture that is created in the adhesive allows any trapped air to escape when the label is applied to a products surface. 

Stray bubbles no longer have a chance to ruin the smooth application your label requires. Heat causes outgassing and bubbling of labels, but micro-embossed materials allow those bubbles to escape and keep the surface of the label smooth throughout the entire label’s lifetime. Labels on injection-molded plastics are more prone to bubbles or wrinkles but with Air Egress labels this is no longer a concern. Air Egress materials are durable and long lasting. They allow outgasses to escape even after environmental aging over time.

Features and Benefits

 

Uses

Air Egress labels can be used on a variety of durable labeling applications. Automotive labels, under hood applications, water heaters, lawn equipment, recreational vehicles and chemical drums for outdoor applications are just some of the products that Air Egress labels can be used on. Some examples of labels include, product identification labels, barcodes and rating labels, work in progress labels, property identification and asset tags, and durable goods labeling.

Whitlam works with different substrate suppliers to ensure that we meet your label requirements. We understand the importance of branding and why it is important to make sure that your label meets your brand standards. Whitlam cares about your products appearance. Contact us today if you would like more information about how we can help you have good quality labels on your products.

Brand Security

Array ( [post_title] => Brand Security [post_content] =>

At Whitlam we understand that it is important to protect your brand. Over a billion dollars is spent annually by US Fortune 500 companies to fight counterfeiting, protect brand names and trademarks. Every year automotive and aircraft part manufacturers lose billions of dollars in revenue to counterfeit parts. Since internet shopping has become so popular, counterfeit products are at its highest. Companies like International Trademark Association is estimating that the total global economic value of counterfeiting could reach $2.3 trillion by 2022. Most counterfeit items are sold online and bought by consumers and wholesalers. Counterfeiters are the most significant competitors in most markets.

Whitlam Group is determined to work with brand owners to come up with a solution that protects their brand, works best for them, and is cost-effective. Whitlam will combine low and high security elements together to enhance protection for brand owners and use different types of technology to maximize their protection. Spending extra for a label that will help protect your brand can be well worth the money if it stops counterfeiters from selling your product and stealing your money.

The Problem

It is important to understand why brand owners need to protect themselves from counterfeiting because not only is it illegal it can also be very dangerous. Counterfeit products are not made to the same standards which can result in devastating accidents, mechanical malfunctions, health and safety risks, and a loss of positive reputation. Consumers, wholesalers, and manufactures are all at risk. 

When consumers purchase counterfeit products, they may be at a loss when it comes to money, if the product doesn’t work. However, the main concern for consumers isn’t the loss of money but rather the health and safety risks that they may encounter when using counterfeit products. Some goods that consumers can purchase that may be counterfeit include automotive parts, power tools, electrical products, games, pharmaceuticals and other over-the-counter medications, baby formula, toys, clothes, shoes, accessories, cosmetics, outdoor equipment and much more. If a consumer uses any of these counterfeit items then they can be at risk for medical issues, mechanical malfunctions or even fatal consequences. 

Manufactures and Wholesalers face the risk of lawsuits and liability costs. Even if they are unaware that they are selling a counterfeited product they are still held accountable. Counterfeit products can also lead to wholesalers issuing a recall which can cost them millions of dollars as well. Manufactures and Wholesalers can both lose their positive brand reputation if consumers are unaware, they bought a counterfeit product. If a brands reputation is ruined by counterfeit products it can be very difficult to repair the damage and regain a positive brand reputation.

Solutions

There are hundreds of different security features that can be added to your brand, labels and packaging to help protect your products. The best time to place a security featured label on products is before the products leaves the manufacturing facility. Tamper evident, authentication and trace security labels are just a few options that brand owners have, to help secure their products. Multiple solutions can be combined to achieve maximum protection.

Tamper evident labels are printed on destructible substrates which can change appearance or are destroyed when tampering such as removing or transferring the label occurs. If a product was tampered with and the label was removed or transferred, a tamper evident label with show proof that the product was tampered. One way the label will do this is by ripping into pieces and leaving evidence behind on the product showing that it was tampered with. Sometimes this can be strips of the label itself or it can be the word “void” repeated over the area that the label was adhered to.

Authentication labels incorporate combinations of security features that can be visually seen or identified and easy to verify. These security features can be checked by anyone within the supply chain. Visual authentication includes barcodes, special inks, holograms, watermarks, embossing and more. Authentication labels can also contain hidden security features. Some hidden features include invisible images or text, hidden barcodes, digital authentication, markers, retro reflective technology, optical variable devices and more. Hidden features can be verified by special lighting, magnification, technology and software. Authentication labels are nearly impossible to copy or imitate.

A third option for brand security is track and trace labels. These labels are unique product identification solutions. Track and trace features can be visual or hidden and can be added to products, pallets or shipping containers. This unique marker can be monitored through the whole process of the supply chain. This feature requires special management data technology and software. Track and Trace solutions allows products to be traced from production all the way down the supply chain till the product reaches the consumers hands which allows the consumer to verify where the product came from and where it traveled from the time it left the manufacturing facility. With this information the consumer will be able to identify if the product was tampered with and if the product is authentic.

How to get Started

Protecting your brand by using brand security labels and packaging is important. It helps with verifying that products being sold to consumers are authentic and builds customer confidence and brand loyalty. Brand security assists with detecting counterfeit products high in the supply chain before the products reach the consumer.

Whitlam is here to help you find a solution. We specialize in brand security options such as tamper evident labels, authentication labels, and track and trace labels. These options can include but are not limited to part marking codes, holograms, specialty inks, RFID, QR codes, micro text, UV indicator, invisible text or images, special die-cuts, destructible substrates and more.

Some goods that consumers can purchase that may be counterfeit include automotive parts, power tools, electrical products, games, pharmaceuticals and other over-the-counter medications, baby formula, toys, clothes, shoes, accessories, cosmetics, outdoor equipment and much more. If a consumer uses any of these counterfeit items then they can be at risk for medical issues, mechanical malfunctions or even fatal consequences. 

Manufactures and Wholesalers face the risk of lawsuits and liability costs. Even if they are unaware that they are selling a counterfeited product they are still held accountable. Counterfeit products can also lead to wholesalers issuing a recall which can cost them millions of dollars as well. Manufactures and Wholesalers can both lose their positive brand reputation if consumers are unaware, they bought a counterfeit product. If a brands reputation is ruined by counterfeit products it can be very difficult to repair the damage and regain a positive brand reputation.

Solutions

There are hundreds of different security features that can be added to your brand, labels and packaging to help protect your products. The best time to place a security featured label on products is before the products leaves the manufacturing facility. Tamper evident, authentication and trace security labels are just a few options that brand owners have, to help secure their products. Multiple solutions can be combined to achieve maximum protection.

Tamper evident labels are printed on destructible substrates which can change appearance or are destroyed when tampering such as removing or transferring the label occurs. If a product was tampered with and the label was removed or transferred, a tamper evident label with show proof that the product was tampered. One way the label will do this is by ripping into pieces and leaving evidence behind on the product showing that it was tampered with. Sometimes this can be strips of the label itself or it can be the word “void” repeated over the area that the label was adhered to.

Authentication labels incorporate combinations of security features that can be visually seen or identified and easy to verify. These security features can be checked by anyone within the supply chain. Visual authentication includes barcodes, special inks, holograms, watermarks, embossing and more. Authentication labels can also contain hidden security features. Some hidden features include invisible images or text, hidden barcodes, digital authentication, markers, retro reflective technology, optical variable devices and more. Hidden features can be verified by special lighting, magnification, technology and software. Authentication labels are nearly impossible to copy or imitate.

A third option for brand security is track and trace labels. These labels are unique product identification solutions. Track and trace features can be visual or hidden and can be added to products, pallets or shipping containers. This unique marker can be monitored through the whole process of the supply chain. This feature requires special management data technology and software. Track and Trace solutions allows products to be traced from production all the way down the supply chain till the product reaches the consumers hands which allows the consumer to verify where the product came from and where it traveled from the time it left the manufacturing facility. With this information the consumer will be able to identify if the product was tampered with and if the product is authentic.

How to get Started

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.

How can ID Technology help you meet your objectives for your labeling operations? Contact us today at 888-438-3242 Option#3. You can also email me at dholliday@idtechnology.com. We’ll be sure to get you in touch with an expert, right in your area!

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.

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.

Product Coding for Protein Producers

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.

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.

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.

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.

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:

End of Parts & Service – SATO Printers

 

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.

Product Handling Considerations for Barcoding on Shipping Cases

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.

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!
