MPERIA™…the complete marking solution for OSB/Engineered Wood

A market leading manufacturer of sustainable timber construction panels needed a coding solution for marking various types of engineered wood at three different areas within the plant.  This included coated OSB boards, uncoated OSB boards and unitised stacks of OSB boards

The marking processes required small and large character printing capabilities for the application of variable product information, specifications and traceability codes, as well as industry and company logos & graphics.

Following a consultation with our experts we proposed the MPERIA TM V-Series printing system.

Key to the decision-making process was the unrivalled flexibility our MPERIA TM system provided the business including the facility to standardise on printing equipment and ink across the plant irrespective of the product or marking process.

Amongst other factors influencing the decision-making process were;

  • The MPERIA TM V-series is proven to be the most industrial printing technology on the market so the challenging production conditions (dust, vibration and variable operating temperatures) were no issue to long-term performance and reliability. Our years of expertise within the industrial sector, in-particular our knowledge of coding & marking construction products also provided added confidence to the customer.
  • The flexibility to integrate with their existing database and control systems simplifies the management and selection of product files, helping to eliminate operator error.
  • The scalable design and ease in which the MPERIA TM system can be expanded to facilitate additional print heads (including a mix of technologies) to meet future marking requirements meant their investment was secure.
