    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. For more information on BIXOLON’s RFID labelling solutions, please contact your local BIXOLON sales representative.

    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.

    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. Premium Mobility Printing From BIXOLONBIXOLON’s range of mobile printing solutions offer receipt, ticket and label printing capabilities which can be adapted to the user’s requirements. The NEW XM7-40 4-inch (112mm) Premium Mobile Label Printer is a rugged mobility solution which can be adapted to any environment.

    Linerless Labelling Solutions for E-commerce Logistics

    December 8, 2020

    In today’s current economic climate, consumers are now turning to e-commerce not only due to convenience, but a way to access goods and services during the current pandemic situation. With heavy investment from businesses worldwide, the e-commerce business model is gaining momentum as a trading alternative within these uncertain times. E-commerce has created a logistics boom and the volumes of shipping labels which are now required are increasing rapidly. However with the uptake of labelling, there is a demand for the printing industry technology to evolve. Backing liner from traditional labels is often complicated and costly to dispose of. Some countries are already trying to tackle this issue by adding a tax on label backing liners as a packaging material. As an environmentally-friendly labelling alternative, businesses of all sizes are now turning to Linerless labelling, a labelling solution without backing liners. By significantly reducing paper thickness by removing the liner has added up to 40% more paper length per roll, which saves on costs and the environment. It improves work efficiency and reduces downtime required to load new paper rolls. Also removing unwanted liners which can sometimes end up on the ground. Linerless labelling is not a new solution, however the demand has grown in the numerous markets.With all technology, it doesn’t come without its challenges. There is often difficulty in ensuring reliability of the Auto Cutter and the handling of linerless media which can be overpriced and sometimes inconsistent in quality. Linerless labelling is a tricky material to handle as it may cause unexpected issues due to its high adhesiveness and absence of a liner. The key to being successful within this business is to procure the right media from the right channels. BIXOLON provides a range of linerless paper supplies called B-linerless™, supporting a wide range of media which will guarantee the reliable performance at a reasonable price. BIXOLON also offers a range of specialised printers, including the XL5-40, that guarantee industry’s No.1 reliability of the Auto Cutter.

    The Challenge: Reliable and Transparent e-Voting Solutions

    November 6, 2020

    A growing number of organizations in some democratic countries have introduced electronic voting systems with the aim of improving various aspects of the conventional voting process. E-Voting ensures faster vote count and tabulation alongside extremely accurate results, while reducing the chance for human error. Furthermore, it requires only the amount of ballot paper to be consumed for those who actually attend voting so the costs could be saved. On the other hand, security issues have always been conjunct with the e-Voting due to the lurking threats of fraud. The concerns over paperless elections have particularly intensified since it was revealed that the US voter registration database and public election sites had been targeted by hackers. Experts have laid great emphasis on a traceable e-Voting system combined with physically printed vote records that enables stringent audits. In which case, the voting machine prints a paper trail with protected voter’s identity after a voter selects a candidate by digital means. The collected paper trails remain as physical evidence to prove that electronic vote is correctly counted without manipulation. BIXOLON’s SRP-Q300 Series, 3-inch cube type receipt printers are suitable to be integrated into this type of voting machine due to its compact size and simple design. Fast printing speed up to 220 mm/sec shortens the voters’ queuing time and the high print resolution ensures the accuracy of the ballot count. The reliable Thermal Print Head makes for the perfect solution to handle large volumes of ballot printing all day long, and the Auto Cutter reduces chance to reprint crumpled ballots causing delays. The SRP-Q300 Series delivers Direct Thermal printing operation without the need to replace toner or ink cartridges to print ballots and, they can be easily connected to the host system through a variety of interfaces including USB, Serial, Dual-band WLAN (2.4GHz and 5GHz) and Bluetooth 5.0 (MFi certified). In some places where power supply is not stable, smaller stand-alone voting machines are used for e-Voting. The SRP-Q300B with a built-in battery ensures longer than 18 hours of standalone operations which is ideal for integration in this application. Paired with mobile devices, BIXOLON’s printing solutions could also offer support to the electronic pollbook to streamline the voter check-in process. The SRP-Q300B and SPP-R200ll (2-inch), SPP-R310 (3-inch) mobile receipt printers have widely been deployed for this use in North America. The e-pollbook is a portable all-in-one connected case combining a laptop or tablet, printer, and normal data capture devices such as a card reader or signature pad. It simplifies the voter check-in experience, as well as supports *Same Day Registration by offering a fast and smooth process for elections with a high turnout eliminating the need to scroll through hundreds of names in the traditional paper pollbook to mark voters’ signature near their name. The name is simply searched and eligibility is verified through the e-pollbook system, a ballot with appropriate style is automatically matched and printed from the printer on demand. This solution speeds up the whole process and saves voters’ waiting time while eliminating risks of marking a signature on the wrong line of name. BIXOLON provides an impressive line-up of Receipt, Mobile and Label printers with a wealth of customer support, which could improve security, reliability and efficiency of e-Voting. To learn more about the solutions, please visit www.BIXOLON.com or speak to your local representative. *Same Day Registration (SDR) have been enacted in a total of 21 states plus the District of Columbia in U.S. as of 2020 to allow any qualified resident of the state to register to vote and cast a ballot all in that day.

    Changing Times: The Advancements of Online Food and Beverage Ordering in a Covid Era

    October 5, 2020

    By the end of 2019, the food and beverage industry was valued at $5943.8 billion worldwide* however, due to the 2020 worldwide Covid-19 pandemic the industry has become one of the most hard-hit sectors. Plummeting sales due to forced closures followed by lack of customer confidence to return to their establishments since lockdown easing has forced restaurants, cafes, pubs and any business that serves in-house food and drink to evaluate their services and adapt to the demand for contactless ordering and home delivery. Technology has played a key role in the turnaround of hospitality operations with existing hardware and software being adapted for the integration of these new functions. Alternatively, new technologies are evolving to meet the growing change in customer requirements. Hospitality POS Systems of YesteryearConventionally, hospitality establishments used a centralised ordering system between the front of house and the kitchen to feed service orders to the kitchen typically connecting tablet devices, hand-held terminals or a stand-alone POS terminal to the kitchen via wired or cloud network. However, as businesses are now offering customers new mediums to order including third party delivery platforms. Businesses are looking at either costly updates to their current setups or face introducing additional ordering systems which can result in further screens and printers in a kitchen. As kitchen traffic increases from the front of house and external sources, it is more vital than ever for businesses to make sure prepared food is labelled and documented. From originally hand written notes or printed receipts, sticky labelling has provided the means for businesses to improve their service precision but still comes with its own limitations. Traditional label media comes in fixed label lengths, limiting the amount of content which can be added per label, often resulting in multiple labels to display information. Users are also limited by the number of labels per roll due to the silicon backing paper it is attached to. There has been great leaps within the labelling industry, with a real growth in popularity of linerless label printing, a cost-effective and flexible temporary or permanent sticky adhesive labelling solution. What is Linerless Labelling?Characterised as pressure-sensitive labelling, with a special release coating applied on the face of the label without the need for a silicon liner, linerless labels are available in a range of adhesive strengths depending on the required application. Linerless labels also provide up to 40% more labels per roll than traditional label media by removing the requirement of silicon backing paper. This enables linerless printing of variable label lengths, which is ideal for the precise documentation of customer contact details and order information, to then be placed onto the product packaging for delivery. Linerless Label Printing Solutions from BIXOLON:SRP-S300 – Receipt and linerless label desktop printing solutionAllows concise, accurate linerless printing over five different print widths for both re-stick and permanent linerless label mediaTaken Sensor™ a peel off sensor which allows a queuing system for labels so the next label will only be printed once the current label has been removed reducing labelling mistakesThe printer of choice for hospitality brands globally XL5-40 – The world’s first exclusive permenent adhesive linerless label solutionLinerless labels provide up to 40% more label length on a roll compared to traditional liner mediaEnables high volume, fast labelling at variable lengths with less roll changes Taken Sensor™ a peel off sensor which allows a queuing system for labels so the next label will only be printed once the current label has been removed reducing labelling mistakes B-linerless™ – Linerless label media from BIXOLONB-linerless™ Permanent – featuring a permanent adhesive across the whole media which is similar to traditional liner labelsB-linerless™ Re-stick – supporting removable and repositionable adhesive across the media while eliminating any adhesive residue left when removed.

    Flawless Mobile Specimen Collection at Drive-through COVID-19 Test Centres

    September 21, 2020

    As of September 2020, the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) continues to spread despite months of persistent effort, involving 184 countries with more than 29.7million confirmed cases. While people around the world have been finding it hard to adapt to the New Normal, large-scale testing for the virus is considered to be of critical importance to identify cases as early as possible and conduct prompt contact tracing. In order to maximise testing capacity, a number of healthcare organizations have seen the advantages of drive-through testing such as the prevention of cross-infection between patients in a waiting space, the speed of administering tests and reduced staffing requirements. The steps in specimen collection at the drive-through test centres consist of registration, examination, specimen collection, and instructions. The samples collected at the site are identified with handwritten or printed labels including patients’ information and the time of collection for accurate testing at a clinical lab. Some countries where pre-registration is available, labels for specimens are prepared in advance to reduce the distance staff need to walk back and forth. Whereas in countries visitors will be seen without a pre-registration, where time is required to access identification and printing sample labels from a stationary kiosk. Labelling specimens far away from the point of collection would also increase the risk for errors. Equipping front-line workers with rugged mobile printing solutions enables the smooth running of the test site. Clinical staff scan a patient's ID using a mobile computer at a distance, and sends the data to the national hospital system to create an account. A specimen label can be instantly printed using the data and a mobile label printer. BIXOLON’s mobile printers are optimised for this application to enable optimum DT centres to functionality. Staff can save time reducing idle walking time between the car and the station to print a label, enabling workflow to be streamlined and the testing process is expedited. This will facilitate more tests for symptomatic patients and significantly elevate capacity of each centre per day. Labels instantly printed by the car can also help prevent mis-identification. Featuring the SPP-L3000 a premium mobile label printer,Fully rugged form factor enduring multiple drops from 2.1 m / 7 ftIP54 rate sealed to withstand water, dust and extreme weather conditions Perfect compatibility with major operating systems including Android™, iOS™ and Windows®Fast data processing and print speed of up to 5 ips (127 mm/sec)Longest battery runtimes with 2600 mAh capacity Reliable wireless capability simultaneously connecting both Bluetooth and WLANEasy to use with LCD and ergonomic design Put BIXOLON’s industry leading mobile technology in the hands of front-line workers to increase productivity and create a safer working environment in DT centres.

    BIXOLON's Linerless Labelling Solutions for Healthcare

    August 12, 2020

    Hospitals are generally categorised as fast-paced environments requiring efficiency and speed to provide optimum patient care and maintain staff satisfaction. Staff are often demanded to carry out complex tasks working with sensitive information which requires precise reporting to reduce errors. Traditionally this type of information was hand written, however to improve the speed and accuracy there has been a rapid adoption of barcode labelling as a way to store, report and track important information within the Healthcare industry. Today, medical labelling is used for a variety of applications from documenting patient medical histories, diagnosis and treatment; to providing vital prescription information or documenting medical samples. Labels have become an important communicator for both medical facilities and pharmacies where accurate labelling of items can guarantee the right care is provided to the patient. However as the demand for medical assistance continues to rise, many institutions are looking for more cost and time-efficient labelling solutions. BIXOLON offers a linerless labelling solution which meets the market’s demand. Linerless media is a pressure-sensitive label with a special release coating applied on the face of the label without silicon liner. Linerless labelling solutions help to enhance time efficiency while reduce unnecessary slippery silicon-backed liner waste and even save operational costs.

    The Easiest Way to Install Windows Drivers for BIXOLON Network Printers

    July 15, 2020

    As network printers can be shared remotely by multiple users, requires less maintenance and training, they have been preferred by IT managers and most businesses have opted for them to produce receipts and labels. The only small drawback is that they are not as simple as plug-and-play devices to set up in the first stage. Connecting a network printer with manual settings could be a hassle which involves series of processes to input the IP address and create a port to install the drivers. Aligning with its ongoing efforts to develop a comprehensive hardware and software solutions that raise the bar of process efficiency and productivity, BIXOLON has newly come up with the Network Auto Installer. The program remarkably simplifies the bothersome setup procedure with a one-click-installation by automatically detecting and retrieving the IP information of active printers currently connected to the same network as the host device. The software is specifically designed for BIXOLON POS, label and mobile printers in Windows based environment; Drivers by Seagull™ are only supported for label (mobile label) printers. BIXOLON believes that the Network Auto Installer will add some primary benefits to today’s efficiency-oriented workplaces. All that users are now asked is to tick the box for the auto installation option, select the printer from the list. The tool will do the rest without the need to click through multiple stages of Driver Wizard nor go back to the previous page to modify incorrect IP address. Just one click and the drivers will be installed.

    XL5-40 Exclusive Linerless Label Printer, A Game Changer for Cost and Environmental Solutions

    June 24, 2020

    Productivity improvements, environmental regulation and TCO reduction are key points of all businesses. Manufacturing and T&L are more focused on improving operations like inventory management, shipping labelling, order releasing and packing. Linerless labelling solutions are a simple way to enhance the work process and reduce costs. Linerless media is a pressure-sensitive label with a special release coating applied on the face of the label without silicon liner. The absence of a silicon liner saves on the cost of extra labour, storage, transportation costs while reducing industrial waste and carbon emission. The Linerless media offers significant cost and environmental benefits compared to traditional gap media: The Lower Total Cost of Ownership More labels per roll: Liners take up physical space on label rolls; without silicon backing, Linerless media have approx. 40% more length in a roll. BIXOLON’s supply, B-linerless™ supports similar or more competitive price in comparison to general gap media.Greater productivity: By adopting linerless labelling solutions, there is no need to peel-and stick and dispose of silicon liner. Alongside, linerless media is capable to print multiple length labels on a roll plus requires less roll change frequency. This will help cutting downtime and increasing productivity and efficiency.Cutting storage and transportation expenses: Linerless media has no silicon backing liner allowing you to fit twice as many labels on a roll of the same weight and size; therefore, it will increase profit rate by decreasing transportation and storage costs. Greener & Safer Eco-friendly: Less waste disposal leads to less carbon footprint. Due to the release liner waste cannot be recycled or incinerated. Nearly 370,000 tons of silicon wastes were landfilled in the U.S. per year. Using linerless media will be beneficial to reduce disposal costs while saving energy costs. Improved safety: Slippery wastes on the floor can cause a safety hazard of manufacturing and warehousing operations. Removing the slippery release liners from the workplace can reduce potential slip-and-fall accidents. As noted, linerless media has outstanding benefits.
