Can your printer keep up
with the speed of business?
Food & Beverage
The food and beverage supply chain is a highly efficient process that requires products move quickly and accurately with full traceability. Whether you’re labeling produce fresh from the field or boxes from the manufacturer, it is important that each item be properly labeled. Unreadable barcodes can result in refused or lost shipments and ultimately lost revenue. The ODV-2D printer/validator is especially important for its ability to print, and validate barcodes plus generate archival reports.
Track & Trace
In response to a growing number of recall incidents, Track and Trace regulations have become a necessity in the food and beverage industry. Regulations may require both packaged and unpackaged products be labeled with either barcode or RFID labels. Barcoding is the most common and cost-effective method to implement traceability at both the item and case-level. RFID labels are more expensive but offer the ability to enable non-line of sight data capture. In addition to the durable construction and reliable operation you’ve come to expect from Printronix, the T6000 and T8000 offer a mix of RFID capabilities and our exclusive ODV-1D and ODV-2D technologies.
Barcode Data Validation
With compliance fines on the rise, companies are looking to verify their barcodes before shipping. Printronix uses its exclusive Online Data Validation (ODV) technology to validate barcodes. The new ODV-2D is the industry’s first affordable, fully integrated solution for printing and validating 1D and 2D barcodes. Built on the robust T8000 printer platform, ODV-2D includes a built-in printer and data validator that grades barcodes to ISO standards and stores a detailed report of each transaction. Our exclusive technology reads each barcode, overstrikes the entire label of a rejected barcode, and reprints a new label.
ROI of Good Barcodes
With the growing incidence of returned and condemned shipments plus an increase in fines, the cost of a new ODV printer can be recouped by avoiding even one single fine. And unlike other validation solutions, ODV printers operate without supervision, store a record of each label printed and can be used in conjunction with RFID technology.
Mobile Inspection Labels
Quality inspection labels are crucial for ensuring effective track & trace of products throughout the supply chain. Printronix offers enterprise grade mobile and stationary solutions designed to elevate confidence in business operations. The M4L2 is a rugged mobile printer with dual antennas and long battery life that will keep your operation running smoothly. The optional IP54 case allows it to thrive in dusty and dirty environments.
24/7 Industrial Operation
Downtime is not an option on a busy floor. Food processing and bottling require the highest quality and dependability in printers. Our enterprise-grade label printers and ODV solutions ensure that even the largest manufactures stay up and running while delivering best in class results. The T6000 is an industrial mid-range printer that is well suited for most applications but if your operation is working 24/7 we recommend the T8000, our most durable and versatile printer.
Direct Store Delivery
Issuing a receipt on site when delivering food or beverages eliminates errors and saves time. Customers sign and receive a printed receipt immediately instead waiting for an invoice to arrive in the mail. The M4L2 has a dual antenna for better connectivity and a battery that will last all day in the field.
The Right Label Material
Choosing the right printer is only part of the success of your application. Are your labels going to be stored outside? Do they need to be water resistant or do you need an RIFD tag? GENUINE PRINTRONIX SUPPLIES will work with you to identify the right labeling materials for your needs and make sure you’re getting it at the most cost effective price available.
