Irwin’s Bakery achieves accurate and consistent coding with Domino’s TTO systems.
Irwin’s Bakery is Northern Ireland’s most well-known bakery, with over a hundred years of producing high quality breads, cakes and biscuits in Portadown, County Armagh. With older coding systems creating a bottleneck on a very busy production line, Irwin’s made the decision to incorporate Domino’s V-Series technology, installing over twenty V230i Thermal Transfer Overprinting (TTO) units across the plant.
Irish pharmaceutical contract packaging provider Millmount Healthcare has experienced increased cost savings and equipment effectiveness following the installation of Domino Printing Sciences’ V230i thermal transfer printer to its packaging hall as part of a
compliance upgrade. Read more >>
Confronting coding challenges in the bakery industry
Consistent year on year growth of the food industry means that packaged food requirements are steadily increasing across the world. Chief among these is ensuring that ‘best before’ dates, barcodes and traceability information are clearly and accurately printed onto all types of packaging.

Unique Device Identification for Medical Devices
Unique Device Identification (UDI) has been recognised as a key tool in improving patient outcomes. More efficient recall procedures, reduced medical errors, increased inventory visibility and supply chain security are all enabled through UDI.
Under the FDA rule, if manufacturers have not implemented UDI on a number of product categories by September 2014 they may no longer be able to supply product into the USA, with other markets expected to follow shortly with similar legislation. Fee payers and healthcare providers, such as the NHS, will not accept devices without UDI style identification. Read more >>
Unique Product Identification
Introduction – Until a few years ago, most consumers ignored why products carry human and machine-readable
codes. It is fair to assume their closest encounter with coding technology was usually checking ‘best
