Geary’s labor-intensive manual stamping of date codes on beer cases slowed production and diverted labor
resources from more productive tasks. With a proliferation of additional brands and beer formulas, more and
more custom-printed cartons were required, along with expensive plate charges, excess and obsolete carton
SKUs, and increased space requirements.
Lindenmeyr Munroe installed MSSC Smart Jet Lite
printers on opposite sides of Geary’s outfeed conveyor to
print date codes, product names, bar codes on cases,
and twelve product packs. This workhorse affordable
printer prints on porous, semi-porous, and non-porous
surfaces and can print barcodes and logos. The
Smart-Jet® Lite is widely recognized as the market’s most
reliable, economical, and compact thermal ink jet coder.
The customer experienced reduced labor costs, printing
plate charges, and carton storage costs. They realized
increasedeconomies of scale in purchasing generic
cartons and better overall productivity because of a highly
reliable yet affordable thermal inkjet printer that could
meet most of their variable marking and coding needs.
