Major UK Chemical Manufacturer chooses Intec LP215 + label printer

Wednesday, February 10, 2016

Press release from the issuing company

United Kingdom – Internationally acclaimed Coventry Chemicals upgrades its short run production labeling kit to the Intec LP215 Plus.

After extensive research and testing, Coventry Chemicals has chosen to partner with Intec Printing Solutions, to replace its Memjet inkjet system.

With their sizeable UK workforce producing a typical weekly output of 500,000 bottled products, a portfolio of global clients and five decades in business - it’s safe to say that Coventry Chemicals know a thing or two about product labeling! 

“Having initially caught the eye at the 2014 Packaging Show - NEC Birmingham, Intec’s LP215 saw-off stiff opposition to win the day.” said Peter Swann, Intec UK sales manager.  “Their previous inkjet printer did not offer the superior vivid quality, sharpness and 100% colour-fastness required, to keep Coventry Chemicals at the industry’s forefront". 

Coventry Chemicals use the LP215 for short-run labels produced for bespoke products as a niche part of the business in addition to this, they use the LP215 to supplement shortfalls in label forecasts.  Demands from their customer base can fluctuate, so the instant production capability of the LP215 is used to expedite orders which would otherwise take in excess of two weeks to fulfill from their normal litho or digital sources.

The LP215 also helps reduce stock holdings and minimizes wastage that can easily happen when production forecasts change.

“The quality of the Intec LP215 output, over our previous inkjet model, was a key consideration in our purchasing decision – along with label durability to light exposure and liquids” commented Andy Robilliard, Coventry Chemicals’ Supply Chain Manager.

Given Intec’s depth of experience and relationships with key players such as UPM Raflatac, we’ve also been able to advise upon and source ideal media types for their given product applications, the strict chemical labeling guide lines and environments.

Capable of printing up to 2,000 labels per hour, onto a vast array of die-cut, matrix removed and retained media, as well as continuous roll substrates the LP215 has the versatility to take even the most demanding label jobs in its stride. Despite the wide range of options when it comes to media, Coventry Chemicals, use ‘PRE-CUT’ labels, for chemicals, and cleaning products, detergents or even trigger sprays. The labels are pre-cut to their desired shape by PPR Label media, and the matrix is ‘retained’, enabling Coventry Chemicals to bleed/print their label designs over the very edges of the label.    

Following the installation of the LP215 at Coventry Chemicals,  Peter Swann and James Williamson - Intec technical manager, visited to provide a session of on-site training for system calibration and to catch up with the team and address any questions they had.
