With Z-Tec's Flying Barcoder right now we're actually getting 100% barcode label application. I was really surprised on the accuracy of the machine... It was a pretty exciting time for the operation, we were putting in this Flying Barcoder machine and it was working. I think we have a very excellent working relationship with Z-Tec Automation Systems Inc... building a machine that has never been seen before... We were installed and in place in 24 hours.”Bud Wasylyshen - Planer Coordinator - Canfor`s Isle Pierre Planer Mill
I would recommend the WinJet system, and there are a few aspects: one, the print quality is exceptional, and two, it's very easy for the employees down there to manage it. It doesn't take a lot of expertise, it's a very simple system, it's very quick – so it's very quick to learn.”Franco Antoniazzi - Plant Production Superintendent - Canfor Polar
The Z-Tec team is top notch. They have the technology that best suits our process and work with us to deliver systems which meet all of our requirements. Post-sale service has been excellent – they are proactive in ensuring that we are happy with their product and go the extra mile to keep the system performing to our expectations.”Trevor Brander - Tolko Industries Ltd.
Because of the harsh environment inside a planer mill or on a production line, boards tend to flip up or move around, and aren't always where they need to be. A few times where a board flew up and smashed the head of the CIJ printer clean off, it broke it in two. A used machine is about $10,000 to replace or to fix. If that same thing were to happen to the HP system, all we have to do is plug in a new cartridge and we're on the go again, suffering no downtime at all.”Bud Wasylyshen - Planer Coordinator - Canfor Isle Pierre
