Available now are eight, on-demand webinars in English, French and German with tips to improve product, case and pallet coding. In October to December there are six more, addressing segments such as small to medium enterprises (SMEs), Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and beverage, as well as continuous inkjet (CIJ) and thermal transfer (TTO) coding. Options to combat counterfeiting and safeguard compliance, best practices for end-of-line coding, and the role connected services play in boosting uptime will also be discussed. These webinars will be in English, Spanish, French and Chinese.
With most of 2020’s global trade show calendar cancelled and 2021 uncertain, prospects for knowledge exchange are limited. To help manufacturers still learn about the latest innovations to help cost-effectively maximize uptime, performance and quality in their package coding operations, Markem-Imaje held a virtual expo with three weeks of webinars in May covering eight topics. They were so popular, a new batch of six are being offered on Innovation Days between 19 October to 18 December 2020.
“In these unprecedented times, it’s vital to help companies stay connected and informed. Following interpack’s postponement, we virtualized our trade show and, in a safe and time efficient way, reached many people normally unable to attend such events,” says Viktor Hermansson, Global Marketing and Communications Manager, Markem-Imaje. “Our expo gave them practical insights to improve their coding solutions, and in the case of OEE, their lines more generally. Feedback was so positive we’ve launched an Innovation Day program to cover new ground.”
Autumn Innovation Days
Thirty-one educational sessions, 45 minutes each with at least 15 minutes for questions, will be delivered. Most will be done in English, Chinese, Spanish and French. The six topics are:
• Continuous inkjet or laser: Choosing the right technology for beverage applications
• Hassle-free inkjet coding: Setting SMEs up for success as they grow and diversify
•Form, fill and seal lines: Achieving easier, more seamless coding integration for OEMs
• End-of-line coding: Ensuring the best results for your specific application needs
• Connected services: Boosting uptime and production efficiency
• Packaging Intelligence: Optimizing packaging operations while ensuring compliance and brand protection
