Aside from providing information to consumers, codes also underpin supply chain logistics, and are increasingly becoming the link between physical products and the digital world of online information. However, in order for codes to function correctly, they need to be accurate, from the date and batch information on the individual product, to the information on the boxes, all the way to up to the data displayed on the pallet label. It’s this level of precision that ensures the product gets to the right place at the right time. This is the foundation of Coding Automation.
Domino believes strongly in helping our customers continue to elevate their production, and a large part of this is to help minimize errors and recalls. Quite often the coding technologies on the line are not integrated into the production automation and thus require a manual intervention of some form…resulting in the increase for potential errors. Domino, on a global scale, is investing heavily in not only the software and systems to support Coding Automation, but the experts to marry the technology with the software itself and the impact to the customer.
To start, Domino is pleased to show the latest video in their thought leadership series, featuring Adem Kulauzovic, Director of Coding Automation for Domino North America. Adem begins this brief video by simplifying what our understanding of IOT and Coding Automation actually means, followed then by the impact of NOT automation and some true to life examples of Coding Automation success stories.
“We worked with a major beverage company, and when they do a line change, the primary coders that would print on the cans would print the accurate date. But when they went into a case, it was a different date because they had the wrong product. They had an over $40,000 recall to get them properly coded. What we (Domino) offered was an automation solution that allowed them to press the ingredient product that they wanted, and that it would deploy the correct message, not only at their primary coders, but their secondary and tertiary. They have no human intervention, failures and efficiency is practically at 100%.”
We encourage you to visit Domino at Pack Expo Las Vegas where Mr Kulauzovic will be presenting on Coding Automation, as well as offering the chance to discuss your coding automation needs. Can you afford NOT to have your coding technology automated?
