Customers are guaranteed even more assurance of exceptionally high quality products thanks to the latest investment made by glass packaging manufacturer, Beatson Clark.

Through a continued plan of investment and improvements, the company is now extending use of Ultra Violet Inkjet Coding equipment to all production lines. 

Phillip Lamb, Head of Quality Beatson Clark commented: “Through our business strategy of continual improvements, this is the next phase to make certain our quality assurance is second to none. The new equipment will ensure every container has the date and time placed on it which will mean we have 100 percent traceability back to each and every container manufactured.

“The key benefit of using the Markem Imaje Inkjet coder is that it uses Ultra Violet ink which is not seen by the naked eye. Therefore this coding will not interfere with a customers own coding and can be placed anywhere on the container from the shoulder to the foot, even where the label is to be applied.”

UK based Markem Imaje will complete installation of this new state-of-the-art equipment by the end of July 2011.

This latest investment forms part of an ongoing investment programme at Beatson Clark to strengthen its position as a leading glass packaging manufacturer. The next stage of this programme includes the roll-out of a 2 to 3 year phased installation of new automatic inspection equipment which has been on trial for the last six months.
