Case Coding Solutions

The DataLase Case Coding Solution is an innovative, highly efficient and sustainable way to apply variable shipping information onto corrugated boxes.

A viable alternative to print & apply labels, high resolution inkjet and waxjet solutions, DataLase Case Coding helps eliminate waste and single use plastics from the supply chain.

A typical print and apply label produces label backing waste with silicone release coating and thermal transfer ribbon waste which consists of plastics, waxes and resins. All of which are multi-material and non-recyclable.

For every 1m typical shipping labels (100x150mm or 4″x6″) 300 Km of backing waste is produced. If we apply this to a production environment, where operations are scaled up accordingly, this equates to thousands of Km of backing and thermal ribbon waste being sent straight to an incinerator.

This supports circular economy initiatives such as:

  • The UK Plastics Pact
  • Ellen MacArthur Foundation – The New Plastics Economy Initiative
  • The Single Use Plastics Directive

It also brings additional advantages to production environments:

  • Eliminate inks and solvents from production lines
  • Realises the operational efficiencies of laser marking systems on end-of-line applications
  • Minimal preventative maintenance and servicing
  • Laser reliability reduces unscheduled downtime
  • Higher throughput rates due to faster coding
  • No waste disposal considerations – no label backing waste or ink
  • Late stage customisation of packaging – reduced SKUs and inventory

DataLase Case Coding is ideal for Shelf-Ready Packaging (SRP) that requires a tear-off perforation. Where a shipping label gets in the way, damaging the pack and having a negative impact on shelf appearance, the DataLase solution allows accessibility whilst maintaining shelf appeal.

Additionally, the laser system delivers high contrast, high quality, durable codes that do not smudge or rub off, meaning less product recall and rework when it gets delivered to the retail store.
