Snows Timber has recently installed two Timbermark high resolution printers at its Dudley and Mansfield sites. The printers apply the Snows logo and the length of individual pieces so the product can be easily identified when stored in racks. The equipment was supplied and installed by Timbermark as turnkey installations, including the software interface to the length and measurement device.
"Our customers appreciate the benefits of adding the length to individual pieces, which gives us the edge in the market," said Paul Trevelyan, Snows Timber division director.
"The high resolution print effect does justice to our logo and branding, and the sharp print means we can print clearly with a small font onto the end of the material".
Snows imports more than 200,000m3 annually and operates nine high-speed planing lines. Other companies which have invested in Timbermark printing technology include BSW Timber, Howie Forest Products and Rowlinson Packaging. Earlier this year Timbermark also completed a project to print photographs onto fence slats at the site of the former Kvaerner shipbuilding yard on the Clyde.
