Sun Chemical turns to Zetes for its proven track record in advanced traceability systems
Sun Chemical, the world’s foremost producer of printing ink and pigments recently implemented a full turnkey Print & Apply solution to optimise the traceability of its logistics operations. Zetes’ comprehensive automation solution is not only fast and reliable but is also flexible enough to handle a variety of product types – from cans to boxes – on the same packaging line.
One of the main advantages of the system for Sun Chemical’s Badalona production plant in Barcelona, Spain is its seamless integration with the company’s ERP system. Following the roll-out of the SAP platform throughout the company’s European division, Sun Chemical were looking for a partner experienced in the integration of traceability systems compatible with SAP. Zetes developed and implemented a state-of-the-art system complete with maintenance and supply contracts to ensure the continuity of the automation project.
A total of four Print&Apply systems were installed for the lateral labelling of boxes and cans along with two security label application systems for paint cans. As a result of the implementation, productivity has increased significantly while also improving the traceability of all stock the moment it leaves the factory floor.
