Is caffeine-infused clothing a real possibility?
In 2003, the United Nations introduced the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals to ensure employers, workers and the public were able to identify dangerous chemicals and other harmful substances. The GHS guidelines provide a standardized system of labeling for health, physical and environmental hazards that might pose a safety risk to those who come in contact with them.
When it comes to printing GHS large format drum and chemical labels, having the right production infrastructure is crucial. Any container that holds potentially dangerous substances must clearly display information about its contents, along with the corresponding GHS-approved imagery. For large-scale manufacturers, these HazCom requirements can be difficult to keep up with, especially in fast-paced production environments. That’s where Epson’s ColorWorks GP-C831 can help.
The Epson GP-C831 drum label printer is specially designed for high-volume production environments, making it a great fit for industrial manufacturing companies and other enterprises that produce or handle hazardous substances. The ColorWorks GP-C831 is based on inkjet technology and is able to facilitate efficient, cost-effective printing of industrial-strength GHS labels with a high degree of detail.
Unlike standard product labels, GHS criteria requires companies to list a wide range of information that must be clear and easy to read, including product identifiers, pictograms, warning notices and supplier identifiers. The ColorWorks GP-C831’s eight-pin tractor feeder helps ensure the highest quality labels can be printed at high speeds and industrial volumes, earning it the distinction as the first inkjet printer to be BS5609 certified. Additionally, the printer’s precise label feeding technology can significantly reduce jamming, misalignment and smudging. The core features of the Epson ColorWorks GP-C831 include:
All GHS labels must be durable and fade resistant to fall into compliance with UN guidelines, as they will spend their entire lifespan in close proximity to corrosive substances. But thanks to Epson’s advanced DURABrite pigment inks, labels printed by the ColorWorks GP-C831 will have exceptional stability and resistance to water, chemicals, smudges and erosion. These powerful printing capabilities make the ColorWorks GP-C831 ideal for drum and large container applications, but it can also fit a variety of other production environments.
Epson’s ColorWorks GP-C831 label printer offers outstanding long-term performance, enhanced efficiency and cost-effective ink management. This model was designed to seamlessly operate for five years (or 600,000 prints) in high-volume production lines before needing any significant maintenance. The key benefits of deploying the ColorWorks GP-C831 include:
