Xact launches new website

The website brings together information on both packing and coding ranges and is divided into 6 sections reflecting the main areas of the business: Checkweighers, Labelling, Thermal Transfer, Inkjet Coding & Marking, Strapping and Prepack.  Each area follows a ‘step-by-step’ format.

Large coloured tabs, clearer headings, shorter routes to product pages and industry specific information all contribute to a more user-friendly experience.

Further enhancements include easy access to video footage, downloadable files and quick links to solutions which are most relevant to the browser’s industries.

This development coincides with Xact’s growth of their coding and marking range into new markets, such as FMCG and food.  Xact equipment, consumables and services has always been of premium quality and the new site reflects this.

New, easy to use thermal transfer printer for flexible packaging

Its modern, compact design includes 7" touch screen which allows fields to be easily added or removed from each message.

Messages are simply created on a PC and loaded via USB.

Some key benefits:

  • Very little maintenance – patented long life mechanical design and free ribbon feeding system ensure ribbon flows smoothly even in high volume operations
  • Extremely clear impression every time – 300dpi print head for barcodes, logos and text
  • Flexible ribbon economy mode – for intermittent or continuous use

New checkweigher now available!

The highly customisable modular design allows the checkweigher to be integrated with a metal detection system, 2 ejectors or 2 labellers. Adjustments can also be made to types of guides, length of tapes and width of transport.

The key benefits of the system are the speed and simplicity, with the ability to process 270 units/minute combined with its touch screen equipped with wireless and bluetooth connections.

It also comes with an integrated printer which allows easy analysis of statistics at the end of each run (e.g. number of rejects).

It is most suitable for food (fresh produce, ready meals, dairy) and pharmaceutical production lines, as it can handle huge volumes and it extremely easy to clean.

Modern Counter Partnership

Moving away from the old painted steel to a more modern Stainless steel construction means that this is easy to clean and more hygienic. Having stainless steel rather than rather than painted steel means that the financial value will not be lost. With Painted steel, once the paint is removed to be replaced it loses its value.

Xact launches new HP inkjet printers

Capable of printing up to 600×600 dpi, using window fonts, typical applications would include scanable 1D and 2D barcodes, graphics and high resolution, small character, real time information. Multiple cartridges can be mounted together to give a print height of 50mm or 100mm plus.

One of the main benefits over traditional coding technologies is the completely mess free cartridge replacement process which does not require a service technician as it works in a similar way to a standard desktop printer. This also means minimal maintenance is required and it is environmentally safe as there is no ink leakage.

The controllers themselves are extremely easy to use with icon-based software, touch screen control and message creation via USB or Ethernet, meaning little training is required. They also integrate well on any production line due to their compact size and versatile mounting of print heads.

Furthermore these TIJ printers can print at up to 300m/min and up to 4” print height while retaining a high quality print.
