Contract Packaging industry is competitive with suppliers looking to meet short timescales and varying customer needs. To get a competitive edge, co-packers companies rely on industrial coding machines that provide flexibility, ease of use, and reliability. From handling a range of packing materials to operating to short timescales, Linx contract packaging coders can solve these challenges.

The existing Linx laser coders were coding medicines on already high-speed lines, but the huge demand for the vaccine saw a further significant rise in production volumes that necessitated an upgrade to the coders to cope with the higher throughput.

A laser mark can be used as an important security feature to avoid the counterfeiting of your products.

Counterfeiting can be defined as illegally making something that imitates an authentic product. The best coding and marking solutions provide excellent protection against the counterfeiters and the robust, permanent and complex codes they produce are increasingly the best form of defence.

2020 will go down in history as a challenging time for food producers. It is vital that food supplies to supermarkets and shops are uninterrupted and rigorous hygiene maintained – but we should not forget the importance of the printed information that is provided to the consumer when it is on the shelf. There are heavy fines for batch and date codes that do not meet the require ...

The change in consumer demand as a result of the lockdown conditions imposed by governments around the world has created new problems for producers. Some industries have seen a sharp decline in demand, for example automotive, but others have seen huge increases in demand in the scale typically seen in the run up to major holidays such as Christmas. Factories in the #food, #beverage and #personal care markets are very used to managing seasonal variations in demand for their products, but this takes planning.  The unexpected and sudden change has created problems throughout the supply chain from primary producer through to retailer.

Visible, real-time data helps to improve operations.  The benefits of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is that you’re able to track live data and use it to compare and project forward.

Production and engineering managers are up against a myriad of tasks and need to have the right tools to make effective decisions.  It is imperative that manufacturers take measures to reduce production problems (and the inherent costs that brings).  By implementing the best equipment and data management possible, they will be allowed the space to focus on important innovation and improving output, making a real difference to the bottom line.
