Primary product information is crucial because it allows a product to be easily
identified with the addition of variable data. This data can include date codes, lot codes, expiration dates, and further production information like plant location, shift code, and production line. Accurate product traceability is vital to compliance standards and also to ensure brand protection.

Secondary packaging has two major functions. The first is to protect the contents within and aid with secure and efficient transport. The second is to help promote branding and make the item more easily recognizable on store shelves. The most common forms of Secondary Packaging include corrugated and chipboard boxes.

Master packaging is the final box that the product (in bulk) will be shipped in. 
Master Packaging identification aids in identifying what products are inside the box
and other information such as quantities, weight, product number, date codes, and lot codes.  Master Packaging coding is typically achieved with either labels or inkjet printing directly onto the carton.

Thermal Transfer Printers

Thermal Transfer Printing utilizes heat generated by the printhead to create a mark on many flat substrates - typically a label. The mark can be any combination of alphanumeric text, barcodes, and logos. The most common substrate varieties are Thermal Transfer and Direct Thermal. Thermal Transfer utilizes a Ribbon, which is the carrier for the ink.  With Direct Thermal labels there is no ribbon utilized because the label has a special coating on it that reacts with heat.

 

Palletizing begins with a flat structure who’s purpose is to support and transport your goods. The products on the pallet are typically secured by stretch wrap, glued to each other, or are strapped down. Once secure, the pallet is often labeled, which depicts total pallet weight, a count of the products present, and any other appropriate information. Proper palletizing allows your product to be transported in a secure manner, and processed easily by the recipient.
