Epson To Unveil GHS Compliant Labelling Printing Technology At Pack Expo
Epson has announced that it will unveil its ColourWorks C831 Wide Label Printer at this year's Pack Expo international event in Chicago.
The system eliminates the need for colour pre-prints and enables businesses to develop Globally Harmonized System compliant labels at a cheaper price than thermal transfer or colour laser labels.
The news comes after the ink cartridge specialist announced that it is hoping to boost its profits in Romania to €9 million (£7.1 million) by the end of this year through sales of projectors and other products.
Andy Scherz, senior product manager at Epson, said: "Producing colour labels on demand with the ColorWorks C831 can make the move towards compliance much easier and efficient.
"Chemical companies can reduce inventory management costs, errors and waste and increase productivity by moving the labelling process closer to manufacturing and shipping."
Mr Scherz noted that although countries are introducing GHS standards at different rates, chemical manufacturers in America must "stay ahead of the curve" with regard to adhering to the rules.
