Printing protection
No matter how many preventive systems
are in place in a food processing facility,
sometimes recalls occur. When this happens,
it's crucial for the processor to have systems
in place to respond as quickly, efficiently and
effectively as possible to lessen the potential
damage and to get production operations
running again. Quality printing systems can
assist processors in achieving this goal.
Printing is used on packaging for a variety
of purposes. It's used to provide required
consumer information such as " best before " or
" best by " dates to help consumers determine
how long the product will remain fresh. Lot
codes are also printed on packages for quality
control and to identify when and where the
product was manufactured.

" Sometimes lot codes are used for internal
quality control. If you have a pallet of
packages that didn't seal properly, you can
go back from a maintenance perspective
and take a look at what happened during
that time period that could have impacted
the performance of the equipment, " Mekler
says. " Once those packages leave the plant
and go out into the supply chain to the
distribution center and to the retailers, that
traceability code is critical to being able to
effectively manage a recall. Those codes are
crucial to manage getting product out of
the supply chain, off the retail shelf, which
ultimately will minimize the impact on the
business. "

it comes to printing systems. The company

Metal detectors are a crucial part of any

" There's a growing trend in the meat industry
right now to use thermal inkjet printing
technologies and in 2021 MULTIVAC released
the TIJ 10, which is our brand of thermal inkjet
printer. What's unique about the TIJ 10 over
other thermal inkjets in the industry is that it is

Mekler explains. " With our thermal inkjet,
because it's built in, everything is managed
from one screen, the packaging machine HMI.
