Videojet Launches New Ink To Enhance Adhesion On Flexible Plastics
As the topic of food labelling regulations continues to lead discussions within the food manufacturing and packaging industry, it has never been more important to ensure merchandise is coded accurately with readable use-by dates that last the entire intended lifecycle of a product.

In response to this ever increasing concern among food manufacturers, Videojet invests millions every year enabling their expert ink chemistry team to develop new, improved performance inks. The latest addition to Videojet’s successful 1000 Line ink range is the V418 enhanced adhesion ink.

V418 has been formulated specifically to improve adhesion and abrasion resistance on flexible film packaging commonly used in meat & poultry and fish & seafood manufacturing facilities. The environmental conditions of the packaging area and the product being packaged can present unique challenges for printing use-by dates. Heidi Wright, Business Unit Manager for Ink at Videojet explains “We listen carefully to our customers to understand the challenges they face so we can try to resolve them. Through this constant two-way conversation we discovered that certain facilities can experience poor or inconsistent ink adhesion on their products when conditions are wet or cold, or where the packaging may come into contact with oily residues or condensation.”

V418 has been carefully formulated to actively repel water and a variety of oils after drying. The ink solvents effectively penetrate through and displace oily residues on the surface and when dry, the codes can resist further oil exposure and water condensation for the intended life cycle of the product.

Wright concludes: “Extensive tests were performed on a number of standard industry flexible films to verify resistance to many types of oils and animal fats. We are very pleased that this new formula has unlocked new ways to help our customers produce better quality, longer lasting prints in harsh environments, especially on traditionally hard to print materials such as polyethylene.”

Videojet continues to invest in Ink Research and Development to expand their portfolio of industry standard and specialty fluids to meet and exceed manufacturers’ printing needs.

SATO Showcases Print And Label Solutions For Food Industry
SATO, a global leader in barcode printing, labelling, and RFID, will showcase its latest solutions for the food industry at the CFIA show (in Rennes, France, 10 -12 March.

Highlights will include SATO’s NX series universal thermal printers and high-performance S84-ex and S86-ex print engines for high speed print and apply applications. Visitors to the stand will be able to learn how they can make labelling, identifying and tracing food goods an easy and efficient process.

With the introduction of European Directive 1169/2011 on food labelling last December, ensuring labelling accuracy and traceability has never been so important for food businesses across Europe. With its fast-paced working environments, the food industry also demands high-speed print and apply solutions.

SATO’s new S-series print engines offer significant industry advancements in terms of quality imaging, exceptional throughput, and easy operation, setup and maintenance.

The S84-ex print engine has been integrated in a print and apply system to ensure high precision in applying labels on the side of each of a food parcel. Different label sizes are available -- from 30 x 50 mm (minimum) to 120 x 250 mm (maximum) - providing maximum flexibility to the user, while an applicator system with aspiring belt ensures high print and apply speed.

SATO’s universal CL4NX ‘plug and play’ printer is also ideal for demanding and fast-paced food and drink packaging. It is quick to install and set up and can be easily integrated in existing systems thanks to its auto-detect function. It can handle a wide range of media including different sized labels, and features a wide head opening for easy media installation, with no ribbon core needed. Additionally, it ensures ultimate print quality and exceptional processing and throughput speed and memory capacity.

“With our broad portfolio of barcode printers and labelling solutions, we can offer food manufacturers an easy way of producing labels that clearly indicate vital information about foods and beverages, enabling them to meet EU legal obligations and CFIA is a great opportunity to present our innovative tracking and tracing solutions to the European food market,” says Laurent Lassus, Managing Director, SATO France.

“We provide complete labelling and packaging solutions which help businesses increase efficiency, optimise internal and external logistics processes and most notably to cut costs.”

Shanghai Xinhualou Saves Time And Money With The 1000 Line
Shanghai XinHuaLou Food Co. was founded in 1851 and is one of China’s time-honored brands. They are famous for Western and Chinese pastries, steamed breads, cakes, Zongzi, cured meat and fish, and especially moon cakes. Besides the domestic market, XinHuaLou exports products to the USA, Australia and many other countries and regions.

For more than 10 years in a row, the XinHuaLou moon cake has led the domestic market in both output value and sales volume. Also, for several years in a row, the XinHuaLou moon cake has become the only moon cake brand of Shanghai to rank among the “Top 10 Moon Cakes of China,” becoming one of the few enterprises in China’s moon cake manufacturing industry that has won the highest award. The increased demand for their products has put pressure on XinHuaLou to increase their production output and created a need for higher productivity on their manufacturing lines.

“The 1000 Line inkjet printers helped us meet our growing production goals by keeping our lines running.” Ms. Zhang Ting, Equipment Supervisor of the Production Engineering Department

XinHuaLou decided to replace its older Continuous Ink Jet coding systems in order to find a solution to keep up with its production demands. XinHuaLou had never used Videojet equipment before but had heard of Videojet through their brochures. They decided to bring in a Videojet sales engineer to learn more about the new 1000 Line. Thoroughly impressed with its new features, XinHuaLou decided to purchase two of these printers to install on their production lines.

Ms. Zhang Ting, Equipment Supervisor of the Production Engineering Department, is very pleased with the operational improvement they have gotten with the 1000 Line. “As our production volume increases, it is critical that we improve our operational efficiency in order to meet our daily production targets. Our older printers were just not up to the challenge. They would go down two to three times per week and sometimes for a half day at a time. That was just unacceptable. We have seen a dramatic change with the 1000 Line. They hardly ever go down which allows us to keep our lines moving.”

The 1000 Line has been engineered to maximize the uptime of a production line. The CleanFlow™ printhead with an auto cleaning function and positive air delivery is the most advantaged printhead in the market today. By reducing ink and dust buildup that can cause traditional ink jet printers to shut down, this unique printhead requires less cleaning and enables longer runs without intervention. In addition, the 1000 Line allows XinHuaLou to run longer between preventative maintenance activities and schedule maintenance time appropriately based on their production schedule.

The reduction in downtime in their line has led to tremendous savings for XinHuaLou. Each time XinHuaLou shuts down the line to perform preventative maintenance on their printers, they are paying each of the employees that work on the line for idle time. Also, XinHuaLou is not able to produce additional products during this time, potentially costing the company additional revenue.

A thorough analysis by XinHuaLou has determined that they generate $25,000 of incremental revenue per month on each line with the 1000 Line printer. Another big benefit seen by XinHuaLou is how easy the printers are to use. The 1000 Line printers feature a highly intuitive interface to streamline daily functions. It displays all of the printer operation information and even displays exactly what you are printing on the screen. According to Ms. Ting, “Our codes consist of a production date, expiration date and occasionally food additives. This means that we typically change the code on each line multiple times per day. The printers are very user-friendly. Changing messages on the printer is very easy to do.”

“We are excited about working with Videojet to help us get there.”

XinHuaLou does not currently have any plans to buy new printers or expand their production facility. However, when they do, Videojet will certainly be part of their plans. “We are hoping for continued growth for our company but will need support from our partners,” says Ms. Ting. “We are excited about working with Videojet to help us get there.”
