Barcoding

scanner.jpgYour businesses products, documents and even people can benefit from being identified. It could be at the Point of Sale, product and component traceability, work in progress tracking, or perhaps access control. Bar codes are the easiest and cheapest way to achieve such identification, but only if they are fit for purpose.

It is necessary to have the correct coding structure; if the code needs to be unique then it needs to be registered with GS1, the world wide standards organisation for such codes. It has to be printed on the right media, e.g. paper, laminated, plastic coated, for appropriate protection during use. Finally it needs to use the correct adhesive to stay permanently attached. Torchwood are registered with GS1 with full "Solution Partner Status", and are therefore highly qualified to advise on the use of, and the provision of bar codes.

We have the expertise and manufacturing capability for all bar code labels, from the simplest paper tags to the most sophisticated domed plastic tags and adhesives that will withstand the toughest of environments.
Please see below examples of the barcode types we provide – Note all barcodes are digitally printed with outdoor UV inks that are stable for 5 years+ without lamination.
