Timbermark has recently completed a project for HLC Wood Products to equip their Viking 2-way pallet lines with inkjet marking. The project was justified on the need to reduce the fire risk associated with hot branding. The additional benefits were faster changeovers, and the inclusion of variable data such as production date for better traceability.
With the inkjet system we get quicker changeovers, precise traceability and better quality logos for our customers. It's more efficient all round, according to HLC. The HLC investment was approved after proving the system at 3 other Scott Group sites.
