AXR 8 for frost food processing

Published 14/07/2016
No compromise for the identification of frozen products.

Dissatisfied with the print durability provided by another Resin ribbon on the market which nevertheless claims high levels of resistance, this Thai sausage producer finally decided to swap to the inkanto AXR8 Resin ribbon.

A demanding environment for inks
The printed labels on sausage bags are potentially subjected to significant attack associated with the fatty nature of the product, to the heat of the product when it is packaged and to the instant freezing process which follows.
In the absence of a robust ink, any of these constraints may compromise the legibility of the identification and traceability data.
For this Thai user, the main criteria are therefore the combination of excellent print quality on the synthetic medium currently used, resistance to scratching and extreme temperatures and the ability to function faultlessly with the Zebra printers already in situ.

The AXR®8 solution
The print performance of the AXR®8 in such an industrial environment and the commercial approach of the local ARMOR partner convinced the user to change to this product.
The AXR®8 is already widely used in the food processing sector and consequently enjoys certification in accordance with the European standard 1935/2004/EC for food contact applications, and also enables users to comply with the principles of US FDA standards.
