TEKLYNX and Epson Partner on GHS Chemical Compliant Solution

Epson and TEKLYNX Integrated Chemical Labelling Solution to be Featured at Chem Show 2017

Epson America and TEKLYNX International, a leading developer of barcode labelling software solutions, today announced a partnership to offer a turnkey solution for Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) compliant chemical labelling. Featured at the Chem Show 2017, 31 October to 2 November at the Javits Center in New York City, the GHS-compliant chemical labelling solution leverages decades of experience from TEKLYNX and Epson to offer colour chemical labelling for manufacturing environments of all sizes.

At the Chem Show 2017, Epson and TEKLYNX will demonstrate the seamless interaction of the TEKLYNX barcode label design software, CODESOFT, and Epson’s ColorWorks C7500 inkjet on-demand colour label printer, made possible with TEKLYNX embedded native printer drivers. Embedded native printer drivers offer many benefits to the users of Epson’s ColorWorks printers, including true WYSIWYG (“What You See Is What You Get”) printing technology, which results in less wasted label stock and high-quality colour labels.

“As GHS-compliant chemical labelling continues to be adopted, the demand for a one-step label printing solution that delivers fast, efficient and durable colour label printing has become increasingly important for companies looking to enhance their workflow and meet labelling concerns for on-demand packaging labels. Our strategic partnership with TEKLYNX and its ongoing investment in the development of native printer drivers creates the opportunity for us to offer the most seamless, turnkey solution for on-demand colour labelling,” said Andrew Moore, product manager, Epson America, Inc.

With the increase of industry standards and government regulations that specifically require the use of colour, colour label printing continues to grow in importance for manufacturers of all sizes from localised to global manufacturing environments. Colour provides additional levels of visual communication by enabling the inclusion of bold safety warnings that catch attention and draw the eye to critical information. By creating native printer drivers for Epson colour label printers such as the ColorWorks C7500, the TEKLYNX solution helps chemical manufacturers comply with industry standards and government regulations, such as the GHS, which requires the inclusion of specific pictograms, rendered in colour, to help classify hazardous materials.

“The partnership between TEKLYNX and Epson offers our shared chemical manufacturing customers the industry’s best overall colour labeling solution for GHS compliance, giving our customers peace of mind. We’re excited to partner with Epson to showcase our combined solutions in action at the upcoming Chem Show”, said Doug Niemeyer, General Manager, TEKLYNX.
