Xact receive prestigious award from Matthews Marking

Xact were delighted to be awarded the top accolade for Sales Development.

The Latest High Resolution Printers in Industrial Inkjet Technology

Xact were approached by PCS to provide a system capable of marking their products with industry and company logos, as well as product specifications.  PCS are a manufacturer of Thermal Construction Boards and Profiles including complex geometrical profiles.
Xact recommended the Mperia Viajet T100s system.  We have installed one system in 2014 and due to its success and reliability a second system is on order.  This suited the need for High Resolution Printing in dusty conditions and variable operating temperatures 24/7.
The superior print quality and performance of the Mperia T-Series System has increased the company branding and raised their brand awareness within the industry.  The system also met  the requirements of their customer base requiring their own high quality company logos combined with the customised mounting assembly to meet the installation requirements of the line (and PCS expectations).  The overall turnkey solution offered from Xact sets us apart from the competition.

Robust Large Character Coding

The V-Series is versatile and ideal for applying a variety of product information and traceability codes, as well as logos, graphics and barcodes onto both porous and non-porous materials.

Together with its durable design, this makes the V-Series ideal to meet the demands of extreme environments. Typical applications include the coding and marking of Construction products, Chemicals & Fertilisers, Industrial Packaging, Automotive Products, Foams, Plastics & Films, Paper & Pulp.  The capability to operate in these sectors means that basic applications such as case coding are also suited to the V-Series.

Coding Solution In Harsh Environment

Leading insulation provider, Xtratherm approached Xact with their coding & marking challenge.  Xtratherm, who supply the construction industry with a range of insulation products, needed a solution for their foil backed insulation panels.  They needed to apply ‘precise’ location marks on their insulation panels necessary for the installation process.

Working with the Xtratherm team and building on our experience and success within the insulation industry,  Xact were able to offer a solution that delivered unrivalled flexibility using the power of the Mperia system to operate all 9 heads from a single controller.  The Mperia ViaJet V-Series system incorporating 9 print heads from the one Mperia 12” controller suited Xtratherm’s needs and effectively solved the problem, along with the flexibility to include additional heads at a later date for the application of product information and logos on this and other production lines. 

This flexibility reduced the amount of hardware at the line, in turn lowering investment costs on the initial purchase as well as expanding the system to meet other product marking applications at the plant.  Their investment was secure.   The ink consumption and general operating costs were also massively reduced in comparison to other systems.  Due to the success of the system Xtratherm has already rolled the system out to other plants in Europe. 

The outcome is reliable and consistent printing, despite the high operating temperatures and dusty environment.

The Next Generation In Thermal Inkjet Coding Technology.

Ideally suited for printing on porous and non-porous materials, the L-Series printheads perform in a range of challenging packaging and industrial environments, such as the coding of outer cases, cartons, coated and uncoated media, bags, timber, plastics, films and construction products.

Date Coding Solution

Xact were approached by ‘Watergull Orchards’ a family business producing high quality English Apple juice.  The customer was looking for a date coding solution that could be applied directly to the bottles of apple juice.  They were using an out dated mechanical stamp which was giving poor print quality as shown in the image below.

The bottle date code needed to be clear, concise, fast and meet strict standards.  After a site visit, our technical team worked with the customer to recommend the Mperia L12 system with a 7” Mperia controller.  The Xact solution provided a cost effective and flexible option and Watergull Orchards were impressed with the high print quality and service provided from Xact.

The L-Series is a system that truly grows with your business.  It’s a cost effective and flexible system which will improve productivity.
