Following a highly successful PPMA TOTAL show last year, leading barcode labelling automation manufacturer, Cobalt Systems is set to showcase its green solutions, as the company continues to bring to market automation technology that meets the needs of customers seeking a more sustainable supply chain.

“Last year, after becoming a Carbon Neutral Business, we used the PPMA TOTAL show as an opportunity to show our commitment to developing greener solutions for our customers and we had some very positive feedback on the automation technology we had on the stand,” comments the company’s founder and Managing Director, Tony Hunt. “This year is all about showing visitors that we’ve listened to them about the things that are important to them and we’re working towards increasing our status as a sustainable manufacturer and ensuring our innovations enable a greener supply chain for our customers.”

A core part of Cobalt’s offering is automated print and apply labelling technology, which can sit standalone or be integrated in a larger, more complex setup. Working across a range of businesses and industries, the pain points still remain the same for startups and SMEs as it is for big blue chip companies, as Hunt explains; “We know that automation supports and resolves vulnerabilities on the production line. Our solutions provide critical labelling automation, that not only solve the problem of labour shortages, but increase efficiencies, grow productivity and make things easier for our customers.”

“As the industry and our customers are showing no sign of stepping back from their commitment to sustainability, we are building on development of the Cobalt GREEN programme with electric tools for our NEXUS print and apply labelling technology and further developments with a linerless option to massively reduce material waste.”

As a UK manufacturer of print and apply labelling solutions, Cobalt Systems will be demonstrating a variety of eco-automation options at PPMA 2023, including verification and validation applications featuring technology from its long-standing partner, Zebra Technologies.

“As a growing company, visitors to PPMA can not only expect to see demonstrations in labelling automation, but also the latest future-proofed and robust barcode solutions, to help solve even the most challenging barcode problems,” concludes Hunt. “We welcome all visitors to the show to our stand B72 to explore how barcode labelling and automation can assist your business.”

You can see Cobalt Systems at PPMA Show 2023 on stand B72 from 26th – 28th September 2023, Hall 5 at the NEC, Birmingham.
