On the Road at Pack Expo Chicago

On the road to PEC

It’s been 4 years since the last Pack Expo show in Chicago, and event organizers expect record levels of attendance at this year’s show in downtown Chicago  The world has changed alot since 2018, and AT INFO has responded by innovating new coding technology like never before. We don’t just print codes…. we provide solutions to pain points experienced by most packaging operations:

Labor shortfalls – Labor issues have been accentuated over the past few years since COVID.  Companies struggle to retain good employees, which puts pressure on packaging operations to perform.  AT INFO offers integrated coding solutions that reduce the overall labor requirements in a packaging environment.

Production downtime – Many print technologies require regular maintenance to keep the coders operational.  Maintenance contracts can cost more than the acquisition of new coding equipment, and increased downtime is ensured unless the packaging company invests in multiple back-up systems.

Throughput challenges – How can packaging companies process more pieces per hour with the same or similar costs?  AT INFO offers several turnkey solutions that boost production and offer a payback period less than 1 year.  One example is our Integrated Feeder Solutions, where we incorporate Markoprint to code flat boxes and pouches at speeds not previously possible.

Equipment obsolescence – Markoprint coding solutions are available in several print technologies, with printheads from 12.5 mm to 108 mm tall.  We offer products that are commonly integrated on conveyors, bag sealers, labelers, friction feeders, form fill seal, flowpack machines and more.

Take a SNEAK PEAK of our newest 34 mm tall printhead, the Integra PP RAZR.  It’s a compact, industrial coder featuring two rows of nozzles and a print speed up to 492 feet / min at 300 dpi.  The ink comes in a 250 ml cartridge and resides in a separate ink tank.  This allows you to run for extended periods of time without changing out the consumables.  The existing inks print hi-resolution codes on both porous and non-porous packaging substrates.

Visit the AT INFO booth # S-3300 at Pack Expo in Chicago this October 23-26 to discuss your packaging inefficiencies and how to overcome them.  We plan to showcase a wide variety of Markoprint coding technologies that can help solve your packaging pain points.  To schedule a discussion, please call us at (201) 529-0202 or send a message here.
