The new Innova Labeling system is a powerful label design and printing system specially designed for the food production industry. The system is fully integrated with other Innova modules and the Innova database making it very easy to create and manage label designs.
The system consists of three main components:
The Innova label printing system continues to seamlessly support all pre-existing labeling functionality (Stream layouts, NiceLabel, Bartender, Report print service and Comformats).
The Label management and design system allows the user to easily manage and design labels. The system has eight main screens:
The Label layout editor allows the user to design and preview label layouts. The user can arrange data fields, texts, barcodes, graphics (lines, etc.) and images on a design surface. All properties of the layout components can be set in the designer (font, size, etc.).
In the Label layout editor you can view and design label layouts. The Label layout editor has a Designer mode where you can arrange the various elements on the layout and a Preview mode where you can see what the label will look like when it's printed. Multiple layouts can be displayed at the same time. You can associate a data record (such as a pack) with the layout so that information from the database is displayed on the label as you design it or you can supply sample values for individual fields.
The printer management system allows the user to install new printers and to configure and monitor installed printers. Print jobs can be seen going to the printers in real time along with images of the printed labels. The operational status of the printer is also displayed (head lifted, out of paper, etc.).
A new Marine Grader solution has been created that is especially designed for whole-fish grading and freezing systems out at sea. Fish is graded into batches which are subsequently assigned to freezers. After the product is frozen the freezers are emptied, the product is labeled and then queued up to leave the freezing area. The solution provides an easy way for the freezer operator to manage the contents of the freezers and to maintain lot traceability through the whole process. The operator can choose which batches are assigned to which freezers and remove the product once it is frozen so that it can be labeled and stored.
