The systems allow cartons to be tracked through the final closing and sealing process and then identified automatically for transit with a full size shipping label on the top.
Six Logopak 515T print & apply labelling machines have been installed, two for each of three packing lines.
The first machine creates a small tracking label to identify each carton and its contents while it is automatically closed. The second creates the final shipping label.
Wilson Clark, Logopak's UK general manager explained: "Unlike systems in which cartons are identified, but then simply put in a registered queue for automatic closing and labelling, the use of a tracking label ensures there is no blind spot in the closing and labelling process. If a carton needs to be removed from the closing machine, perhaps to clear a jam, its identity remains intact, with no risk of mis-labelling."
