Printers at FoodPro

With traceability a hot topic in the food industry, accurate date and batch number marking on food packaging is vital. Visy Technology Systems, which develops solutions for product marking and coding applications, will showcase the Hitachi PXR-P (P), a new ink jet marking machine at FoodPro 2008.

This machine can handle white pigment inks for a high-contrast print onto dark packaging materials. In the past this has been a challenge for manufacturers as traditionally ink jet printer inks are mostly black.

Visy also will be demonstrating a unique ink jet printer and ink suitable for printing detailed graphics and words directly onto baked food items. The display will be a cooperative effort between Visy Technology Systems and Edible Advertising Pty Ltd. This technology can be use to apply custom-designed graphics for pie tops, breads and other specialty pastry items.

The new 3138-N model Label-Aire labeller, designed to print then apply a barcode label to adjoining panels of finished goods, will also be on show. Supply chain requirements recommend adjoining panel barcode label presentation and this DAT (Dual Action Tamp) machine can achieve this without the need for two label machines on the line.

See Visy’s new labelling solutions at stand 5010 at FoodPro 2008, which runs from Monday 21 July to Thursday 24 July, 2008, at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre.
