A leading UK supplier of bulk and bagged cement needed a robust printing system for the application of batch and date codes to bags of cement.  We provided our robust MPERIA® V-Series printing system which included the 16v 8000+ MIDI print head.

Additional Info

Our years of expertise within the industrial sector was key to the decision-making process and therefore placing their business with Xact, in-particular our knowledge and proven success coding & marking in the harshest operating environments of the construction industry.

Other factors influencing the decision-making process were;

  • The capability to apply a large print format at high production speeds to ensure clear visibility of the codes when the bags are palletised and stored in the warehouse.
  • References received from within the industry highlighted the proven long-term performance of our systems within the toughest operating environments where they are subjected to dust, vibration and variable operating temperatures
  • Our competitors were offering CIJ (continuous ink jet) printing technology. This was also an option available within the range from Xact. However, we proposed our latest V-Series printing system which, in comparison to CIJ technology, not only increased the legibility of the codes but also significantly reduced initial investment and operating costs moving forward, not to mention increased reliability in the harsh operating environment.
  • The V -Series offers superior throw-distance to other systems, ensuring a quality code is applied despite inconsistent presentation of the bag.
