Xact – Cementing Relationships With The Construction Industry

A company producing bagged aggregate products needed an inline printing system for applying the product ID comprising of a product name and traceability codes to their plastic packaging.

The customer stipulated it was essential the proposed system could provide a large high quality print format (to aid visibility of the codes when bags are palletised) as well as meeting the tough operating environments of the plant (dust, vibration and variable operating temperatures).

Our competitors were offering CIJ (continuous ink jet) printing technology. This was also an option available within the range from Xact.

Instead, Xact proposed the latest V-series printing system which, in comparison to CIJ technology, not only increased the legibility of the codes but also significantly reduced initial investment and operating costs moving forward.

The V-series is also the most industrial printing technology on the market so the tough operating conditions of the plant were no issue to long-term performance and reliability

Xact’s years of expertise within the industrial sector and in-particular our knowledge of coding & marking construction products, provided added confidence to move forward with Xact.
