AWR 8 IN A SODA PLANT
A major drinks producer facing barcode reading problems with products leaving the packing line found a solution by selecting the inkanto AWR8 Wax ribbon.
At its 4 production sites in the USA, this premier manufacturer prints 10,000 labels daily to identify and trace the bottles of concentrated syrup used to produce soda.
During the logistics process the boxes of bottles bash into one another on the conveyor belts, exposing the printed labels to a stern test.
Faced with the lack of print resistance offered by another Thermal Transfer wax ribbon on the market, this producer selected the inkanto AWR®8, which offers greater print durability than the other ribbons within its category, plus the ability to print at high speed.
AWR®8 delivers high print quality across a wide range of printer settings and on all types of paper. So it was easy to deploy this new ribbon across the whole range of this producer's ZEBRA Pax printers while retaining the programmed print settings and the RAFLATAC label already in use.
DISTRIBUTION & LOGISTICS OF CERAMICS
This UK manufacturer sells its goods via a national distribution network and has selected inkanto Thermal Transfer Wax ribbons AWR®8 and AWR®470 to meet its requirements in terms of volume, competitiveness and print quality.
Barcode labels are applied to the ceramic products sold through their distribution network, and logistics labels are applied to their packing boxes. The labels are paper (UPM Rafflatac) with both permanent and removable adhesive, and are overprinted using ZEBRA 170 XiIII+ printers.
The selection criteria, that convinced this customer to replace the Direct Thermal technology with Thermal Transfer, include print speed and the quality/price ratio achieved with such large volumes, as well as extended print head life.
AWR 8 IN VEHICLE PASSENGER COMPARTMENTS
The company TPGTEX Label Solutions located in Texas sells its products to vehicle servicing centres, including a ready-to-use label printing solution which serves as a reminder for the next oil change.
The label is affixed to the interior surface of the windscreen, clearly visible to the driver. But such a location poses a hazard to the printed matter which is almost constantly exposed to UV; some inks fade away in this environment, with the information rapidly becoming illegible.
TPGTEX Label Solutions has chosen the inkanto AWR 8 Wax ribbon for its ease of use, print quality and UV resistance.
The AWR®8 is compatible with a wide range of labels made of rough or smooth paper with a mat or gloss finish.
On the blue scale, which measures the resistance of a pigment to the sun's rays on a scale of 1 to 8, the AWR®8 - like the other ARMOR black ribbons - obtains a rating of >7, guaranteeing excellent print durability.
