Coding, Labelling, Inspection in the Dairy Industry

Dairy
 

With Matthews, it’s never been easier to meet the challenges of coding, labelling and inspection in the Dairy industry. With our advanced systems blended with years of experience working with the Dairy industry, Matthews provides everything you need to transform your unique processing environment to enable flow of product to customer – efficiently and seamlessly.

The Australian dairy industry is facing new challenges, including emerging consumer trends, rising global competition, and stricter industry and retailer regulations, to name but a few. At the same time, there are challenges inside the factory doors:

  • Environment challenges: e.g. coding in humid or cold environments, on wet and wash-down surfaces, and at super high-line speeds
  • Variety of packaging materials: e.g. liquid paperboard, HDPE, rigid and flexible plastics
  • Inherent short product shelf-life: Demanding better efficiencies throughout the productions line.

It’s never been more important for dairy processers to have the right coding and marking equipment to deliver accurate, durable codes at high speeds and on a variety of packaging formats, with the right inspection technology to guarantee high quality goods.

 

Date Coding and Product Labelling

Smudged or incorrect date codes result in wasted product. So it’s critical to invest in technology you can count on to ensure codes are always clean, crisp and correct, and do not rub off, even with moisture on the packaging. Matthews provides a range of small character continuous inkjet printers and Label Applicators that can print codes or apply labels onto a variety of packaging materials used for milk, yoghurt and desserts – even at high line speeds.

Serialisation in the dairy industry

Serialisation is an important application with the potential to unlock huge benefits around traceability and transparency in the supply chain – especially with the export market opening up for dairy. Matthews provides the right Laser Coding technology to apply the code in your unique production line and ensure it is permanent.

Carton Coding & Pallet Labelling

Dairy processers need technology solutions capable of applying codes to the various substrates used for primary and secondary packaging. At the same time, you need to ensure your codes will be applied reliably in wet or humid environments. Matthews offers flexible and cost-effective Thermal Inkjet Printers and Label Print and Apply Systems for both outer cases and primary packaging.

Quality control

Vision inspection systems and checkweighing systems will automate quality control of your packaging quality, so you can reduce the potential for human error and enable greater transparency throughout the process. Matthews can help you implement vision inspection and checkweighing systems to save costs, improve efficiencies and ultimately increase retailer and consumer trust of your brand.
