Things you really need to consider in Coding and Marking in Packaging
With ever changing regulations in many industries and the driving force of cost reduction, the need to understand coding and marking systems becomes more essential in helping with your risk management and supply chain effectiveness. Coding and marking tends to be at the end of the manufacturing process and consequently often provokes little interest or understanding of its importance and benefits.
This webinar will introduce the HP Thermal Inkjet technology (HP TIJ) and will also cover other major print technologies – Piezo, CIJ and Thermal Transfer – presenting their strengths and weaknesses, how they work in the packaging environment and the total cost of ownership (TCO) for each.
To illustrate the points, real life examples will be shown together with the business rationale behind the end users decision, for printing directly on the product's primary packaging. New regulations that have wide ranging impacts will also be discussed, including UDI (Medical Devices), PTI (Food) and Track and Trace (Pharmaceutical).
Purchasing decisions for coding equipment and machinery used in the packaging industry are swayed more and more by indirect costs and regulations. Many professionals in the industry are now realizing that a little knowledge in this field goes a long way in helping to reduce costs and increase opportunities and efficiencies.
Join this webinar to learn about the value and benefits of utilising HP TIJ coding and marking systems to the overall packaging needs of your business. Real life examples will be discussed and critiqued with the goal of improving your supply chain effectiveness.
