A world leader in the production of shot and grit needed a robust printing system for the application of general product information and manufacturing codes to bags and pallet hoods. 

Xact proposed the powerful MPERIA® platform operating a mix of VIAjet™ L and V-Series print heads, specially designed to perform in harsh production environments.  The L-Series completes the bag marking process, comprising of a production name date and batch code. The V-Series heads are used to print product name, description and codes to opposite sides of the cardboard pallet hood.
