H&D Mitre 10 has two SX32 Drop on Demand Inkjet coders; one sitting underneath the timber and the other over the top, to mark two sides simultaneously.
The mill uses them to code a logo with the Australian Standard, their identification number and what they’ve treated the timber with (a methyl bromide fumigant). For that one export client alone, H&D Mitre 10 does around 600 cubic metres annually — plus several hundred cubic metres for domestic clients.
Staff find the coders easy to use. They have improved the mill’s productivity, and given a more professional look, with a clearer mark.
H&D Mitre 10 also likes the fact they can program the coders for different things if they need to; for instance, they can print a customer’s name and phone number on the underside of the board, which customers like as identification and free advertising.
