An ongoing strike by the Paperworkers Union in Finland is straining supply of self-adhesive labels for packaging across Europe. Label industry association, FINAT, has reported that lead times for paper-based label materials are now three months or more, causing concern for consumer goods suppliers. But there is an alternative.
UV-resistant, pigment-based, solvent-resistant, food grade, invisible – edding’s ink innovations are enabling customers to do things with ink they didn’t think were possible.
Whether you run a multinational company or a small start-up, for food producers traceability is becoming critical to both building customer engagement and fulfilling a duty of care to protect consumer health.
How do you maximise cost effectiveness, resource efficiency, speed and sustainability? The industrial environment is continually evolving, driven by advances in technology. To survive and thrive manufacturers must adopt a chameleon-like ability to adapt to each emerging trend.
What does connectivity mean to you? Opportunities to engage with other people? The connection between people and devices? Or, the ability of one machine to communicate with another?
Pricing or sticker guns are the staple of many small and mid-sized manufacturing companies. But the ongoing consumable cost of a sticker gun versus an edding Thermal Inkjet (TIJ) printer can be significantly higher.
Are you a small to medium-sized organisation producing less than 10 million products per annum and want to reduce your annual costs? Are you a large company producing more than 10 million products per annum and want a more efficient, simple coding process?
In a detailed breakdown in 4 scenarios, we analyse precisely which technology costs how much, including all cost, Opex and Capex.
For years Continuous Inkjet (CIJ) technology has been manufacturing’s preferred solution for industrial marking and coding. But with recent advances in Thermal Inkjet (TIJ) technology, could that all be about to change?
