Xact recently installed an MPERIA™ system for a company producing firelighting products (solids and fluids). The client wanted a combined system for the coding of primary and secondary packaging. Our solution offered exceptional print quality in a challenging industrial environment for the printing of production dates, batch codes and outercase coding comprising of company logos, barcodes, product description and specification.
The MPERIA™ VIAJet T and L Series printers are the latest industrial ink-jet technology available. The T-Series is the high resolution inkjet (piezo) and the L-Series is the high resolution thermal inkjet (TIJ). The entire systems provide exceptional versatility and print quality for applications to porous and non-porous materials in challenging packaging and industrial environments, such as this example.
The system is controlled by MPERIA™, which is a production line coding management system able to manage multiple print technologies across multiple production lines. In this case MPERIA™ was set up to control the L and T series print heads. The L-series completes the cap coding process on the bottles, comprising of a production date and batch code. The T-series heads are used for the outer case coding process on three production lines with the application comprising of product description, specification, date and times codes, company logos and barcodes.
