Plastic case manufacturer W.AG extends the in-mould labelling by the Digimarc function

 

With in-mould labelling, W.AG possibly has the latest innovative decoration process for optical customisation of plastic cases. But to give their customers the opportunity to equip their cases with even more intelligence and information, the company is now linking the decoration process with the Digimarc barcode. With the integration of this digital watermark, users of W.AG’s design cases have access to a wealth of new functions for marketing, sales, service and process optimisation.

Geisa, October 2018. – The digital watermark, Digimarc, is the technical pioneer of a new, barely visible type of barcode, which upgrades the function of products and packaging with additional interactive information. “The Digimarc function corresponds perfectly with our objective of offering the users of our design cases ever more options for value-oriented customisation. In combination with the in-mould labelling that we are already using, this allows for a lot more functions for the intelligent [Read more…]

More and more series with high quality photo printing

At FachPack 2018, W.AG will focus on in-mould labelling of its plastic cases

Using the example of its successful HEAVY and JAZZ plastic case series, the manufacturer W.AG will focus on the customer-specific and product-specific customization of its design cases using In-Mould-Labelling at this year’s FachPack. In this innovative multicolour printing process, the outer visible surfaces of the case housings receive a brilliant, colour-intensive and scratch-resistant imprint directly in the injection moulding machine. 

Geisa, September 2018. – In the meantime, W.AG can visually refine almost all design case series of its large portfolio with the in-mould labelling (IML) photo printing process. Among other things, the renowned manufacturer made this possible through regular investments in modern injection moulding systems, which have special handling systems with which in-mould labelling can be carried out in a process-integrated manner. “Just a few days ago, we once again expanded our in-house expertise in this area by commissioning a new IML-capable injection moulding machine with a clamping force of 300 tons. This will certainly not be our last investment in in-mould labelling, “assures [Read more…]

Improvement and optimisation of delivery and dispatch conditions

At the beginning of June, W.AG started further expansion and optimisation at Geisa.

The construction and integration of another loading dock allows more flexibility during deliveries and dispatch of goods. “With the second loading dock, we prevent congestion at pick up and dispatch”, says Tobias Becker, Head of Logistics at W.AG. “This expansion also benefits freight forwarding companies, as we can process the dispatch and delivery of goods faster.”

In addition to the new loading bay and dock, the entire delivery area will be paved and the surrounding area of the new loading dock expanded. “The previous layout of the area is not adequate for the new loading dock. That’s why we have expanded the delivery area, to allow the truck drivers to easily reverse up to the loading dock”, Mr. Becker comments and seems very satisfied with the optimisation measures.

New know-how for inlay drawings

In April 2017, the prototyping department spent several days on a training course on foam inlays.

The emphasis of this training for the W.AG inlay designers was the creation of complex milled inlays. Because in practice, the use of hard foam for milled foam inlays often makes for easier implementation of complex inlay designs requested by the customer and offers optimal results.

In spite of compartments with different depths and geometrical arrangement, milled foam inlays offer high solidity and steadiness. Especially for heavy inlay content, often there are structural advantages which ensure long life and professional use of inlays in daily use.
