coding on wood - J-Pak

Printing and coding on wood in the manufacturing industry, what is the best solution?

Most products need barcodes to be eligible for sale in retail stores. This is true even for engineered wood products. Wood products like Oriented Strand Board (OSB), Plywood, and Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) need relevant barcodes. High-resolution thermal inkjet printers powered by the MPERIA® platform are the perfect solution to phase out labels and print on your engineered wood products!


What are the problems involved with labels and wood?

Major fines can be given to engineered wood products that are not labelled or are labelled incorrectly with unreadable codes.

A big reason why labels and wood do not work is because labels don’t adhere well to the wooden material. The dusty boards and environment make it hard for labels to stick adequately.

The costs involved with the labelling process include the actual preprinted labels, the label applicator equipment maintenance (machines need to be kept running for production) and the storage of labels. This all adds up and creates more costs that you don’t need to have. There is also production line downtime when operators have to swap label stock. This slows down the manufacturing process, which needn’t happen if you had the right coding equipment.


What is the solution for printing codes on wood?

Basically, labels and wood just don’t meld together seamlessly. That is why we suggest your manufacturing business use thermal inkjet printers that print directly on the substance.

Directly coding onto wood products can eradicate the risk of unlabelled products on retailers’ shelves. With these marking and coding solutions, you will get clear and clean-looking barcodes with relevant information. This solution eliminates the need for labels and has a positive impact on the downtime created by using labels.
