Geiger deploys DASCOM dot matrix printers in tunnel excavation works

The customer

The Geiger group of companies, based in Oberstdorf in the Allgäu region, undertakes delivery, building, renovation and waste disposal works for its clients in the infrastructure, real estate and environmental sectors. This medium-sized family business, currently managed by the third generation, is active far beyond the boundaries of the Allgäu. The group of companies employs around 2,500 people across more than 50 sites, not only in Germany but also in Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg, France, Italy, Hungary and Romania.

The Tally T2150s prints for tunnel excavation works

The period up to the end of 2019 sees the construction of the Boßlertunnel, for the new intercity express railway line to Ulm. The Geiger group of companies was awarded the contract to transport away and dispose of the excavated material. 10,000 tonnes of stone are weighed and loaded every day. And this is where the powerful Tally T2150S dot matrix printer with integrated cutter comes in. In special weighing containers, it prints weighing slips and the acceptance documents required for transporting and disposal of the material excavated from the tunnel. At peak times, up to 500 forms a day need to be printed, without affecting the loading process. The entire weighing process, including printing, takes no more than one minute.

Tough use in a tough environment

The construction industry is a tough environment. So you also need a tough dot matrix printer. The Tally T2150S is totally resistant to external environmental influences. Temperature fluctuations or dust present it with no problems. The Tally T2150S just remains cool and unswervingly carries on printing and printing. And it is so user-friendly that it immediately cuts the continuous form and transfers it via a chute system directly to the lorry driver at the weighing station.

The perfect construction site printer

The people at Wilhelm Geiger GmbH & Co. KG are delighted with their extremely versatile power printer. In conjunction with the TallyCom III Ethernet Box, the printer can not only be used by multiple users simultaneously but is also easy to manage. All settings for the printer and interface can be configured from a central location using an internet browser. So it’s no wonder that the Geiger group of companies also want to use the proven Tally T2150S dot matrix printer at other construction sites too.

WIPOTEC announces Russia compliance solution to meet serialisation requirements with cryptographic protection

The Russian Federal Law No. 488-FZ, effective on January 1, 2019, regulates implementation of the serialisation code with cryptographic protection. WIPOTEC has closely followed the developments in Russia, and developed an upgrade kit for TQS solutions that offers advanced printer and camera technology to meet the needs of the Russian market. This upgrade kit is now available for all new and existing TQS systems. The upgrade kit allows a pharmaceutical manufacturer to meet the requirements of the Russian legislation, even when using particularly small and sophisticated packaging formats. WIPOTEC also offers the option of printing the data matrix code in its usual size of 12.7×12.7 mm and smaller. High-resolution cameras inspect the serialisation codes with cryptographic protection in accordance with the ISO 15415:2011 standard. In addition, there is the possibility to enlarge the code up to 25.4×25.4 mm in order to achieve a higher process reliability by maintaining the common module size.

RUSSIAN CODE STRUCTURE

Russian serialisation code will consist of two parts: The first part of the code is the, "identification part" and is comprised of a sequence of characters representing the unique number of the item. The second part is for control and verification and represents a sequence of characters formed as a result of a cryptographic transformation of an identification code. These cryptographic characters are intended to expose counterfeit codes during their verification. Due to the cryptographic transformation, the data set to be coded more than doubles compared to the GS1 DataMatrix used in the European Union.

INFRASTRUCTURE AND CRYPTO-SYSTEM PROVIDER

The system provider is responsible for successful introduction of serialisation and clarification of any details as well as administration and evaluation of the resulting data. Until November 2018, the system was operated by the Ministry of Taxation of the Russian Federation. Since then, the new operator has been the Center for Advanced Technology Development (CRPT). CRPT provides for allocation of crypto characters and transfer of the required data, as well as installation of Issue Recorders at the respective production sites. These devices will be connected to the national cloud. The pharma producer transmits serial numbers together with the GTIN to the cloud and in return receives the corresponding cryptographic key for the code to be printed and verified. The model provides for a fee to be charged for each cryptographic key; in addition, annual maintenance costs for the Issue Recorder are under discussion.

AGGREGATION PROCESS REMAINS UNCHANGED

The process of aggregation of serialised products, which includes aggregation into cartons and further into pallets, will be the same as in other countries. For this purpose SSCC codes with GS1-128 data structure will be utilized. No changes from the Russian side are to be expected here so far.

TWELVE PRODUCT GROUPS TO BE SERIALISED

In the course of the coming year, various product groups are to be serialised for traceability purposes. The new law requires implementation of serialisation activities in a uniform national system. At present, this system provides for 12 different product groups which will require serialisation. In addition to pharmaceutical products, the system also covers shoes, clothing, tobacco, and alcohol. In the long term, the system will cover all products.

SGK Launches Shockwave with $20 Million Deployment of Hybrid Software’s Packaging Workflow

Matthews International’s subsidiary SGK, the leading global brand development, activation, and deployment company, has chosen its partner for the future. HYBRID Software and its CLOUDFLOW workflow solution will be used by SGK facilities worldwide. Earlier this year, SGK installed more than 400 seats of HYBRID’s PACKZ PDF editor in their production facilities while performing an extensive pilot program, code-named “Shockwave”, which tested PROOFSCOPE and CLOUDFLOW for live automated production in selected facilities in North America, Europe, and Asia. After more than 12 months of dedicated effort by SGK and HYBRID, the pilot program was a huge success and PROOFSCOPE and CLOUDFLOW have now been deployed for live production worldwide.

According to Joe Bartolacci, CEO of Matthews International, SGK’s search for a new workflow partner began two years ago at Drupa 2016. “Major brands and CPGs have been asking for faster turnaround, greater accuracy and global real-time visibility utilizing native PDF formats to help them manage their brands around the world. We knew that only SGK had the global scale to deliver this solution. Cloud-based infrastructure for workflow and file management systems was essential to our solution but not available off-the-shelf from any other industry partners. We began searching for a software company that would become a long-term partner with SGK, able to tightly integrate with the power of our new SAP system and our new end-to-end Service Delivery Platform, which will accelerate speed to market and improve efficiency at all levels of the packaging supply chain. We found this partner in HYBRID Software. We are now able to seamlessly manage our clients’ packaging workflow from our desktops to any printer in the world, giving our clients complete reliability and improved speed to market.”

Says Guido Van der Schueren, Chairman of HYBRID Software, “This project was the largest that HYBRID has ever undertaken. It required a tremendous commitment of resources from both SGK and HYBRID as well as a shared vision. SGK set a high bar for speed and quality that CLOUDFLOW was able to achieve because our development team received valuable insights from SGK throughout the process. This was not simply about replacing old software with new software. We needed the product to deliver a greater level of manufacturing automation and productivity across all SGK facilities. Together, we’re ready to lead the next wave of automated packaging production.”

Dressler Group at formnext 2017: Exhibition of the plastic and 3D printing expertise of new HP Inc. ‚preferred partner‘

Additive manufacturing/3D printing has revolutionised the manufacture of more complex or rarely needed components and even enables decentral manufacture on demand. The Dressler Group is making a major contribution here: with its almost 40 years of expertise in the finishing and precise optimisation of plastic powders, it gets the raw material for 3D printing to the machines in the first place.

Trade fair highlights for the Dressler Group at a glance:

#1: Optimisation of plastic powders, designed specifically for customer requirements
#2: The Dressler Group is a preferred partner of HP Inc. (previously Hewlett Packard) for developing and manufacturing powder for HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printers
#3: In-house development Spherical Powder Technology (SPT) enables previously unachievable degrees of fineness e.g. in PEEK plastics and opens up brand new areas of application
#4: Innovation Day @ Dressler Group: Information platform by experts for experts first-hand // becoming acquainted with the ‘future in real time’ principle on site in the Innovation Lab and technical centre

The Dressler Group from Meckenheim near Bonn will be attending the formnext trade fair in Frankfurt am Main from 14 to 17 November. More than 470 exhibitors from Germany and abroad are expected at the event focusing on additive manufacturing/3D printing.

EXPERTISE IN PLASTIC POWDER

The Dressler Group specialises in grinding and finishing plastic powders. With the Innovation Lab and technical centre, it has its own research facilities that create an optimum link between theory and practice. Production takes place on systems that the company largely plans and builds itself. All techniques, such as warm and cold grinding, spraying, extruding and mixing, are offered.

LATEST PROCESS DEVELOPMENT

When it comes to manufacturing/3D printing, the Dressler Group has already experienced a hugely positive response at numerous trade fairs and conferences with its latest innovation Spherical Powder Technology (SPT). The special feature: for instance, SPT enables degrees of fineness of less than 80y for PEEK plastics, which had been impossible until now. What’s more, the process can optionally be undertaken completely without additives, it works at comparatively low temperatures, even enables filled powders, and significantly improves free-flowing properties. Overall, SPT powders open up brand new application options, such as highly complex, more resilient structures in 3D printing.

"In many cases, SPT gets the raw material to the machine in the first place," says Jan Dressler, managing partner and CEO at the Dressler Group. "It maximises the reliability and productivity of the printers because the SPT powder is extremely free-flowing thanks to a level of roundness that has not been achievable in this dimension until now. At the same time, processing steps are cut out – thus increasing cost-effectiveness and environmental efficiency." In its soon-to-be 40-year history, the Dressler Group has become established as a kind of extended research department and workbench for its customers.

PREFERRED HP PARTNER (ecosystem network) This original expertise has now impressed America’s HP Inc. (previously Hewlett Packard). The PC and printer manufacturer announced on 9 November 2017 that it has selected the Dressler Group to be what it calls a preferred partner, which takes care of developing and manufacturing of powders for the HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printer for HP. http://www8.hp.com/… 4210.html

INNOVATION ON OFFER

Besides its attendance at the formnext trade fair, the Dressler Group is offering a further opportunity to get to know the company in detail: anyone interested can apply their individual ideas to the optimisation of their own plastic powder in the Innovation Lab and the connected technical centre in Meckenheim and take home the finished specifications – wish fulfilment on demand, so to speak. With minimum cost risk and maximum success.Reprint free of charge. We would be delighted to receive a specimen copy in any form.
