Leading Dairy uses Xact for product coding

A new world class state-of-the-art dairy plant needed a coding solution for their dairy and powdered milk products, including infant milk.  The dairy needed a system that would code production dates, BBE dates and batch and time codes.

They were looking for a flexible and high speed solution capable of dealing with the high demands in a dairy environment such as washdown, cleanliness, condensation and temperature variations.

The I-Mark SX32e V-Series printer from Xact provides a powerful and flexible solution for standard dot matrix and high resolution inkjet printing.  The system is well suited to challenging environments where varying temperatures, vibration and dust can affect the performance of other technologies.

The facility to operate two print heads from a single I-Mark SX32e controller proved to be a cost effective solution for the plant where product information is applied to opposite sides of the bag. The printer currently operates as a ‘stand-alone’ system but will form part of a new network solution early in 2016. Due to the success of the first printer, a second system is in the process of being installed, along with a proposal to incorporate our latest MPERIA operating system sometime in the near future.

Xact, with long-term manufacturing partners, Matthews Marking Systems, supply a complete range of non-contact marking technologies to suit all applications.
