Photonic printing solutions company DataLase is partnering with Australia's Result Group to bring its coding systems to the region. The move is set to expand DataLase’s global reach.

DataLase describes its coding offerings as "highly efficient and advanced method[s] of applying variable information onto a variety of types of packaging", including GS1, 2D and 1D barcodes, batch/date codes, check-weigh and sequential batch numbers.

The company says it combines novel laser technology with unique colour change pigments to create high resolution, high contrast print, delivering an inkless printing revolution to drive efficiency.

As a viable alternative to print and apply labels, high-resolution inkjet and waxjet solutions, not only does the DataLase solution eliminate unnecessary waste and single-use plastics from the supply chain, the company says it also delivers high contrast, high quality, durable codes that do not smudge or rub off.Traceability is improved through increased accuracy, while efficiency and productivity both benefit through a significant reduction in product recall and rework required.

“In recent years, Result has turned its focus to sustainable packaging design and we are excited to partner with a like-minded organisation which has a keen understanding of the needs and challenges facing the packaging industry today,” Result Group general manager Michael Dossor said.

“Combining our laser systems with unique colour change pigments to create high resolution, high contrast print, DataLase coding solutions deliver an inkless printing revolution that aligns with circular economy initiatives and brings a host of environmental advantages. It also helps us to work towards our 2025 sustainability targets.”

“Result Group is ideally placed to support the growth of DataLase applications in Australia,” Paul Dustain, CMSO at DataLase, said. “We are delighted to have them on board as a distributor and are looking forward to our collective future successes.”

“A new technology introduction is of high priority for those brands who are exporting,” Dossor said, noting that DataLase technology enables a tamperproof code to be placed on the product or even between packaging lasers, making export traceability codes reliably permanent.

“The Result team looks forward to working with customers to provide them with the best solution for their requirements, in conjunction with the unparalleled service and lifetime applications support that have led to Result Group being the recognised market leader in the packaging space,” Dossor said.
