DATALASE has announced that corrugated packaging producer Cepac has become the first organisation to be accredited to its certification scheme.

Launched last year and aimed at packaging producers, printers and converters, the scheme is described as helping to deliver benefits including high-quality coding, quality control processes, minimised supply chain waste, optimised productivity and reduced costs when using DataLase technology.

To achieve certification, Cepac personnel underwent a three-day training package delivered by DataLase, consisting of multiple coating and technical trials. The certification process includes laser safety and user operation training and a survey of ancillary press equipment to understand the requirements for printing DataLase coatings.

Steve Moss, Cepac’s group sales & marketing director said, “DataLase is leading the way with technology to generate high quality coding including barcodes directly upon packaging, without interruption on packing and filling lines. The quality and the speed of this technology has to be seen to be believed and we have already had excellent experience of the product in practical, volume application.

“Typically, our customers have removed a process whilst realising proven benefits, including improved finished pack appearance, lower costs, higher productivity and the elimination of environmental waste, emphasising the sustainability of the DataLase process. We are delighted to be the first accredited partner with DataLase in their crusade to introduce this superior and exciting technology.”

As an accredited partner, Cepac will be audited annually to maintain certification. The firm will also be able to use the certification logo in marketing activity.

Michael Toner, DataLase coding and marking sales director added, “Being accredited will provide Cepac’s customers with high levels of assurance that they are receiving the very best laser coding solutions in terms of quality, overall equipment effectiveness and supply chain performance.”
