"Raising the labelling of EPAL pallets to a modern level" – this was the wish of Ingo Mönke (Chairman of the Board of Management at PALETTEN-SERVICE Hamburg AG, Germany).
For implementation, the outdated burn stamps should be replaced by industrial-grade inkjet printers. The current slow, old burn stamp system didn’t allow flexibility in providing variable marking. It also caused high energy cost due to the outdated technology as well as high insurance costs due to both the fire risk and health and safety concerns.
The success of our application team in three steps
Allen Coding installed a certified by the European Pallet Association e.V. (EPAL) for pallet marking, Diagraph IJ4000 large character printer on the line, which prints on several thousand EPAL pallets every day. The industrial printer and the associated ink are and have been printing more than 100.000 pallets a month at the Wismar plant since the beginning of this year.
The three steps of installation:
Installation of a printing system with two printheads on the line Setting the system for optimal print quality, positioning and repeatability Switching to stable continuous operation – since 2020, installation has resulted in a cost saving of more than 50% in labellig
