On 7 May, Laetus opens an online showroom with numerous stations and informative videos along the process chain. Regardless, the postponed trade fair Interpack, visitors gain exciting insights into the latest solutions from the world’s leading track & trace specialist, the company said in a press statement. One of the highlights is the fully automatic serialization system Modular X.

Laetus presents current solutions for the entire supply chain on the Internet, from inline quality control to the end customers’ engagement. Alongside the Modular X series, many further innovations are presented in the areas of vision inspection, device management, aggregation and track & trace. At each virtual station, a short film can be watched, explaining the respective system.

Fully automatic serialization

The Modular X series is the first fully modular serialization system on the market. It convinces with its unique flexibility regarding the packaging sizes to be processed. The Modular X 1000-MV forms the basis, marking and verifying up to 400 folding boxes per minute with barcodes or plain text, depending on product size and quality. At belt speeds of up to 60 meters in a minute, a mechanically forced guidance ensures that the secondary packaging with a maximum size of 120 x 100 x 200 mm is precisely processed. The compact GMP design allows for easy operation, cleaning and maintenance.

Flexibility for changing market requirements

Format changes are fully automated and, therefore, reproducible, and they can be carried out in less than 60 seconds. This reduces refitting times and hazards of operator errors to a minimum, and it enables companies to react quickly to changing market requirements at any time while operating at a constantly high production output. The optionally available Tamper Evident module Modular X 1000-TL furthermore applies up to 400 Tamper Evident labels in a minute on two sides. The labels are applied at four possible positions (front or rear opening, top or bottom respectively) with an accuracy of 1 mm, which is also checked automatically. The electronically controlled high-speed ejection makes sure that incorrectly marked products are discharged.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
