JW Products have improved their in-house printing capability with the introduction of new machinery that will provide customers with improved lead times for custom printed plastic seals.
JW Products are one of the largest UK manufacturer and suppliers of Security Seals and associated products including Tamper Evident Seals, Security Tapes and Labels and Cable Ties. The company has been servicing the security industry for over 20 years with consistent R&D development to ensure customers receive the best service, products and prices on the market.
The newly developed print machine is based around a multi-station indexing rotary table, each holding 20 seals per mould. The print head operates an ultra-long transfer roller with 300dpi print resolution, giving a high print quality with every print transfer. The new machine was installed at JW Products factory in January and internal training was provided to key production staff for machine and software operation. The integrated software generates formatted print designs from artwork files and then incorporates it alongside the set sequential numbering ranges for printing.
“The development of our new machinery will provide a whole new level of customisation potential for our customers. The demand for improved lead time has motivated us to invest in cutting edge print capability that will allow us to bespoke print on a range of security seal types.
This new system will enable us to produce around 10,000 printed security seals per hour, with the option to increase this capacity to 15,000 per hour if required. This increases our total in-house print capacity by 50% and dispatch custom printed seals within 1-2 weeks. This will be ideal for customers who require plastic security seals quickly to replace stock or fulfil unexpected and unforeseen demand.”
Tom Beresford, General Manager
“The new machine gives us the ability to be quick with custom printed security seals with barcodes and QR codes, images, text and serial numbering. The machine is robust, modern and requires minimal alterations for each print type – allowing for a streamlined production process and consistent print on our seals every time.”
John Walker, Production Manager
