Increased reliability, throughput and reduced downtime are just a couple of the benefits that Whitby Seafoods, the UK’s largest buyer and processor of scampi gained when switching to Clearmark Solutions fully networked (ICE) coders and print and apply labellers.

By replacing its legacy equipment, Whitby Seafoods were searching for highly automated low maintenance coders and labellers to help them to grow their business and keep up with increasingly varied high volume production demands.

The solution was found by switching two factory lines to fully networked Zodiac primary packaging Thermal Transfer Overprinters and Vulcan secondary packaging Print and Apply labellers.

Whitby quickly discovered that the small footprint of the machines allowed for greater integration and synchronicity with larger industrial packaging machines, helping to increase print precision, reducing line disruption and waste.

Whitby now benefit from coders that are flexible enough to print dates in any format or size, and in any Windows true type font.

“The Zodiac’s are easy to use and work well with the rest of the packaging line. Ribbon changeover can also be done quickly with minimal disruption to the production run.
“The Vulcan labellers have [also] allowed us to significantly reduce label printing errors. Being able to check a job file from the office and on the coder touchscreen also provides added peace of mind.” Comments John Tate, Asset Operations Manager at Whitby Seafoods
As a result of the proven performance and reliability of existing Clearmark (ICE) equipment, Whitby has recently purchased a third Vulcan labeller with an accumulation system, delivering a full end of line solution. Once installed, there will be a Vulcan Print and Apply labeller on all three packaging lines at Whitby.
