    The Importance of Zero Waste Store Weigh Labelling Solutions

    October 26, 2021

    “The world generates 2.01 billion tonnes of municipal solid waste annually with at least 33% of that not managed in an environmentally safe manner. Global waste is expected to grow to 3.40 billion tonnes by 2050, more than double the population growth over the same period” – The World Bank. As the world is being forced to review the sustainability and the environmental impact of its current actions, global warming is becoming a hot topic for conversation with new policies and strategies evolving into our everyday lives. World leaders and individuals alike are looking for ways to reduce global and personal waste to live more sustainably. With country and personal initiatives now filtering down to local shopping malls and high streets there has been a visible growth in consumer popularity for zero waste stores. What is a Zero Waste Store?The concept of zero-waste stores first originated in Europe, but is quickly becoming a global trend with major supermarket chains trialling sustainable packaging and self-service produce. As the world is becoming more socially aware of the sustainability and the requirement to reduce waste, many are turning to alternative lifestyles changing the ways they shop. Typically a zero waste stores sells items without plastic packaging, offering a range of goods from dried food such as grains, nuts and pulses, to fresh produce, coffee and chocolate plus, laundry products, homewares and cosmetics. Many shops also have an exclusive range of fresh organic and ethically locally sourced items which can only be found in season. The importance of shop technologyCharacteristically zero-waste stores are small holdings offering a limited range of goods. Customers are encouraged to self-serve measuring the goods they want to take home by filling reusable containers or paper bags. Making it paramount for an efficient POS system with a weighing scale and a labelling system for the smooth running of the business. There are many labelling options on the market to choose from, from traditional labelling using pre-cut, liner backed labels to new liner-free, linerless labelling solutions. As an environmentally-friendly labelling alternative, linerless labelling is a simple way to enhance work processes and reduce costs. The media’s technology significantly reduces paper thickness by removing the liner which adds up to 40% more paper length per roll. This variable length solution is capable to printing multiple length labels on a roll which requires less roll changes which in turn reduces emissions and the volume of carbon waste. Linerless labelling also comes with a range of adhesive strengths from semi-to permanent depending on the activity required. BIXOLON offers a range of linerless labelling printing solutions to which can be easily integrated into new and existing POS setups. Offering a range solutions at competitive price points, BIXOLON’s linerless range are ideal for any retail environment.

    RFID Labelling for Libraries

    August 24, 2021

    Used in libraries for decades, electromagnetic (EM) technology and radio frequency (RF) have provided libraries theft detection. As the library industry evolves to meet user trends and a post pandemic world, radio frequency identification (RFID) technology provides libraries with an innovative solution for improving traditional library practices and processes. Why use RFID labels in libraries? RFID solutions can prevent human error and increase efficiency. RFID labels are applied to library materials and programmed with identification and security information. Compared to a barcode, the labels can be read remotely (such as a circulation desk or staff station) to identify items or to detect the status on materials. With the use of RFID readers, library staff can read multiple items at the same time, whether it’s through a cover or at staff stations speeding up the amount of time to find, process, and inventory items throughout the library. Ultimately increasing the productivity of staff, RFID labels improve several of the day-to-day functions in libraries including: · Identification Identification of book details; stack number, accession number, book number, author information, etc. · Check-in Desk Management of borrowing and returning · Check-in Kiosk Fast scanning the books information · Book Drop Station Return books any time 24 x 7 · Shelf Management Stock Verification: Easy and quick verify the more the 100,000 books per day Searching a book: Location of books to facilitate the search and placement · Security Gate Prevention and detection for the unauthorized removal of library assets BIXOLON’s RFID Printers BIXOLON's RFID printers provide fast and reliable performance when ​printing and ​encoding RFID labels. Ideal for environments such as libraries, BIXOLON’s XT5-40NR and XD5-40tR support UHF RFID printing and encoding capabilities. The built-in LCD with user-friendly functions enhances visibility and tracking performance.

    BIXOLON Auto-ID Overview

    July 20, 2021

    Enhancing Data Capture with BIXOLON Auto-ID Labelling Solutions Automated Identification (or more commonly known as Auto-ID) is the expression used to describe automatic data capture using a number of different techniques. The capture of data is done through a number of technology methods which are automatically logged onto a computer system without human involvement. Barcodes, QR codes and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) are the most commonly used as a means of encoding and storing information which can be scanned and logged. These approaches have become essential in many work processes from warehouse inventory management, logistics tracking to healthcare patient support. Printed labels are the easiest way to quickly produce high quality encoding content. Direct thermal and thermal transfer are the most common printing methods with additional RFID coding technology quickly becoming the norm. With a library of media options available from traditional silicon linered labels to more eco-friendly linerless media labelling options, businesses now have the option to personalise their complete AUTO-ID printing and data capture process.

    The Importance of Shipping Labels for an Efficient Postal Network

    July 6, 2021

    It is estimated that the global parcel industry was valued at $500 billion in 2020, up from just $450 billion in 2018* with an estimated 284.4 billion letters being sent globally in 2019**. Identified as a key global industry, maintaining efficiency within the worldwide postal network is crucial to ensure the free-flow of letters and parcel deliveries. With many touchpoints throughout the delivery process, it is vital for correct shipping labelling to enable letters and parcels reach their final destinations. Clear and concise shipping labelling serves as key information for both logistics service providers and customs staff. Providing information on the sender and recipient, content descriptions, weights and quantities, alongside relevant tracking information normally in the form of barcodes or even RFID tagging to enable the easy tracing of the letters and parcels throughout their journeys. The importance of good quality labelling materialsIn recent times thermal label printing has become the norm for effective label creation. Achieved by a thermal printer heating up a special chemical coating on the thermal paper backed with adhesive, it enables the efficient creation of clear, concise creation of text, graphics, barcodes and QR labels which can be attached directly to a parcel or letter. Traditionally thermal labels are pre-cut and set onto a roll of backing paper. Due to the pre-determined size this can sometimes be quite limiting, so items being sent can often have multiple affixed labels which require additional printing time and can lead to confusion.BIXOLON has recently launched a new patented, high quality labelling solution allowing printed labels media of variable lengths which works in conjunction with a selection of BIXOLON printers with built-in firmware to cut labels on the label’s black mark. B-POST Label™A one-stop solution which generates a range of label lengths for a variety of applications from invoicing to shipping labels, electronic stamps for post office counter automation and franking machines.

    RFID Labelling Solutions for Pharmaceutical and Healthcare

    May 4, 2021

    Many countries are paying attention to improving the track-and-trace of drug prescription and labelling. The drive for RFID-based solutions by governments continue​s to emerge in the pharmaceutical and healthcare market​s. RFID technology is expected to play a significant role for identifying counterfeit drugs while improving patient safety. Improved traceability lowers operating costs by reducing the number of lost or stolen items. Recently, the challenge for medical authorities and governments is to follow mandatory storage guideline for COVID-19 vaccines once they reach the facility. Providers should deploy RFID tags with a sensor to ensure vaccines are kept at the required temperature to avoide any waste. Three key ways the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries can take advantage of RFID-enabled labelling solutions to better manage their operations are: Improve Patient Safety - To facilitate retrieval of patient’s medication and meal scheduling, prescribed medicines and the patient’s medical history. - Medical supplies that are ordered, sorted and tracked via RFID label ensure the correct most appropriate care. Inventory Control - Tracking the supply of medical equipment to avoid any shortage. - Monitoring imports and exports of pharmaceutical raw materials and finished product. - Monitoring the consistent temperature for refrigerated vaccines from manufacture through delivery to health care facilities. Quality Assurance - The right medication must be administered in correct dosage. RFID helps to ensure this through RFID labels that provide medical personnel with the information they need to make correct decisions. BIXOLON offers comprehensive RFID label printers to address the needs of the pharmaceutical industry as well as the challenges faced by the healthcare industry. Recently introduced XT5-40NR and XD5-40tR supports UHF RFID printing and encoding capabilities and built-in LCD enhances visibility and tracking performance. By closely spacing RFID inlay (minimum pitch of 0.6 inches / 16mm) it reduces media waste and decreases the media replacement cycle. ​BIXOLON's RFID printers provide fast and reliable performance when ​printing and ​encoding RFID tags in harsh environments like temperature-controlled supply chains.

    Recent Developments in Food Allergen Management Labelling

    April 6, 2021

    As food allergy management continues to be a global hot topic, government food standards agencies across the world are putting pressure on hospitality companies to update their labelling of their pre-packaged for direct sale (also known as PPDS) foods to protect consumers health when purchasing food products. The updated labelling requirements include documenting the product’s name, a full list of ingredients and highlighting allergens. These regulations are aimed at businesses who prepare prepacked for direct sale (PPDS) foods for direct sale to the consumer on their premises, this could be pre-prepared sandwiches, salads, confectionary and more. These types of foods are packaged before they are purchased by the consumer and are typically found in display units, behind counters or sold in mobile/temporary outlets. These simple information updates provide essential information to people who suffer food allergies or intolerances, helping them to make PPDS food choices at self-service points where there is often very little or no staff interaction. What labelling options are out there?These updated labelling requirements effect businesses of any size from small cafés or bistros to larger hospitality chains bringing in new technological printing requirements. Batch buying pre-printed labels or handwriting sticky labels can be very time and cost consuming. They are also problematic to update if recipes are revised to include new ingredients which by law will need to be updated on the packaging immediately.An alternative solution would be to look into self-label printing. There are many options on the market today, from traditional silicon linered pre-cut, re-stick labels to linerless labels which provides flexibility allowing variable label length depending on the content required.Why go linerless?Characterised as pressure-sensitive labelling with a special release coating applied on the face of the label, linerless labels provide up to 40% more labels per roll than traditional label media by simply removing the requirement of silicon backing paper. Available in a range of adhesive strengths from re-stick to permanent depending on the application requirement. Providing flexibility and a range of environmental benefits, BIXOLON delivers a portfolio of linerless labelling options from traditional desktop printers to compact mobile label printers.

    Correct Labelling – the Backbone to Effeciency Within the Global Postal Industry

    March 9, 2021

    The value of the global post industry topped an estimated $409.8BN in 2018*. With global parcel volumes reaching 87 billion that same year, the increase in demand is on track to reach an estimated 200 billion parcels sent globally a year by 2025**. As the backbone of the world’s ecomony, the postal industry delivers vital packages from food and water to medical supplies and personal goods. With the Covid global pandemic, the postal industry has been leaned on further due to the shift in consumer trends towards home delivery. Technology has ensured the safe and fast parcel delivery, but packages require shipping information support for their successful delivery.But what is the key factor that ensures the efficient shipment of a product or asset? Documenting key information on labelling a parcel or pallet when shipping is crucial for its successful delivery. Typically labels contains the name and address of both the sender and the recipient, the type of shipping service chosen, the content description, a tracking number and barcode/QR code that ensures the correct handling of the shipment by the logistics company. The barcode/QR code on the label is scanned at various hub points throughout its to track the parcel’s progress. High quality, consistent printing of labels is essential for the smooth running of this process, so scanners can read the barcode/QR codes and delivery details can be easily identified. With many high quality label printing solutions on the market today consideration needs to be taken into the application for which the printer will be used and the label media required. Traditionally label media comes as fixed label lengths which limits the amount of content which can be added per label often resulting in multiple labels to display information. It is also limited by the number of labels per roll due to the silicon backing paper. However, in recent years there has been a surge in popularity for linerless label printing. A cost effective, flexible labelling solution available offers a range of adhesive strengths depending on the required application. They provide up to 40% more labels per roll at variable lengths than traditional media by removing the requirement of silicon backing paper. BIXOLON offers a range of specialised traditional label and linerless printers to suit many requirements and budgets.

    Streamlining Retail Price Management Printing

    February 9, 2021

    Whether it’s a small Convenience Store or a nationwide Retail Chain, maintaining pricing compliance across your entire product stock is a challenge by making sure the tags on sometimes thousands of items replicates its ideal pricing direction. Depending on the types of goods on sale, whether it be long life items or perishable goods, Retailers feel under pressure to execute online style timed price adjustments to remain competitive and maintain customer satisfaction. The physical act of adjusting a price tag or shelf edge labelling can be an arduous task, depending on the type of technology used it can also cost retailers in time and man hours. Traditionally price tags and shelf edge labels are printed in large quantities to produce a stack in the back office where products are either tagged in store rooms, warehouses or brought out to update on the shop floor. However printing stacks of price tags and shelf labels often comes with a number of issues. Printing in high volumes a number of different price information can often prove to be time consuming in the printing and then identifying the relevant tag to update a product. Waste is also an issue if a product pricing has been produced at high volume in error. As pricing printing updates are typically done through a back-of-office ERP system, staff can often be missing from the shop floor or additional staff are required to make the relevant pricing adjustments. To alleviate these issues many retailers are now turning to mobile printing solutions which can be integrated into their current ERP systems. Pairing a mobile printer with a handheld terminal, retail staff now have access to a range of product information available while on-the-go. Product price tags and shelf edge labelling can be updated in seconds while still remaining present on the shop floor. By using portable handheld devices to print high quality barcode and pricing information as required, it improves employee efficiency while providing important product information and the ability to printer a product label in the palm of their hand.

An easy to replace Auto Cutter is included. “As the economic and environmental benefits of the original SRP-S300 has been well received within the market, we are optimistic for the SRP-S320 with a larger media roll diameter capacity,” says John Kim, BIXOLON Marketing Director. “The new linerless printer will support potential growth across industries while broadening its range of applications.” Availability The SRP-S320 is available now for order for the BIXOLON Head Office sales region. The product will then be available to purchase from BIXOLON America and BIXOLON Europe’s sales regions from April 2021.

    Track and Trace of Fast-Moving Consumer Goods

    January 20, 2021

    There has been exponential growth in the demand of fast-moving consumer goods (FMCGs) or consumer packaged goods (CPG) which are often inelastic products which often touch every part of consumer life; including durable essential household items, perishable and packaged foods, beverages, toiletries, cosmetics, over-the-counter drugs and more. These types of products are typically characterised as frequent purchase goods, offered at low prices, with a short shelf life and have rapid consumption. They are classically sold at high volume and are delivered through an extensive and often complex distribution network. The logistics supply chain is crucial in the success of FMCG distribution. Transportation of FMCG products are in high demand where the timed delivery of often perishable goods to customers is crucial. Managing and maintaining complex schedules and delivery routes can often be challenging as the distribution network for high paced products is so widespread, which means tracking products between the merchant and the recipient is often very difficult. So the requirement for a Proof of Delivery note has become an essential piece of certification to prove the shipment has reached its final destination. What is the importance of Proof of Delivery?The Proof of Delivery (POD) function acts as a receipt to prove that a delivery has been completed. The POD provides accountability that the products have left the merchant’s premises and has reached its recipient. Typically finalised by a signature on the receipt, a POD normally includes important information such as the recipient’s name, time and date of delivery, address, contents of delivery and other related information.Originally produced as a 2 copy hand written document to be signed and kept by the recipient and the merchant, ways to speed up the accuracy and tacking of this service has evolved. Technology has been introduced where drivers now typically use handheld PDA devices connected to either a portable printer to provide a printed form of receipt once signed onscreen by the recipient or producing an electronic receipt which can be sent directly to the customer upon signature signoff. Printed receipts provide improved accuracy, immediate confirmation of the transaction and can be tailored depending on the recipient’s requirements.
