A UK wholesaler of quarry products (sand and gravel) approached Xact looking for a system to ID code their plastic bags containing aggregate.
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 which was indeed an option within the Xact range. However, Xact proposed the latest V-series printing system which, in comparison to CIJ technology not only increases the legibility of the codes but also significantly reduced initial investment and operating costs moving forward.
The V-series is also the most robust industrial printing technology on the market so the tough operating conditions of the plant were no issue to long-term performance and reliability
Key to the decision making process and placing their business with Xact was the unrivaled flexibility our MPERIA™ system provided the business, such as the ability to manage the marking process across both packing lines from a single interface. Our years of expertise within the industrial sector and in particular our knowledge of coding & marking construction products, gave our client added confidence to move forward with Xact.
