Supplier: insignia
08 October, 2008

Firmly established as the market leader in total printed label solutions, insignia is pleased to advise it has recently installed the state of the art Axicon Online Verification System. This makes insignia the first and only label manufacturer in Australia with this advanced technology.

Axicon is a globally accredited solution provider with GS1 and has specialised in bar code quality systems for over twenty five years .  The installation of the Axicon system by insignia further enhances the status insignia has achieved of Strategic Alliance Partner with GS1 Australia.

The Axicon Online Verification system was installed at insignia after research lead insignia to conclude the Axicon system was the best technology available worldwide. insignia’s Production Manager, Howard Gill, a major champion of insignia’s focus on quality, was a key driver to bring the system to insignia for its customers.  Mr Gill states that “we can offer a 100% guarantee on print quality by utilising this technology which in turn offers assurance for insignia’s customers as they apply our labels to many high cost items”.

The Axicon Online Verification System has been positioned on insignia’s Datamax 400 DPI premier production printer. Previously, the barcode verification on printed labels would be checked randomly. Now with the Axicon Online Verification System, insignia’s capabilities are enhanced to provide 100% verification for every barcode on every label printed at insignia. The Axicon Online Verification System ensures quality barcodes, every time.

The new system delivers insignia with a pro-active notification system that advises when deterioration in print quality may have occurred.  This allows for action to be taken to increase print quality before it falls below the required standard resulting in increased efficiency and reducing production down time.

Independent testing carried out by the UCC rates “the Axicon system the most consistent and reliable on the market” . After a relatively straight forward commissioning of the Axicon system, Mr Gill reports that “insignia’s experienced operators are delighted with the results obtained”.

The recent investment in this state of the art verification system ensures insignia remains as the quality label manufacturer investing in leading edge technology and will continue to deliver consistent, compliant and quality labels for its customers in full and on time.
