Strategic Supplier to the Forest Product Industries
Friday, September 23, 2016
Samuel, a leading metals and industrial products manufacturer, processor and distributor, is pleased to demonstrate their SLP-25 compression strapping machine and their next generation ink jet printing and labeling solutions for the lumber and forest product industries at the bi-annual Timber Processing & Energy Expo (TP&EE), September 28 to 30, 2016, in Portland, OR.
Samuel Packaging Systems Group (Samuel PSG) continues to demonstrate its commitment to the forestry industry with two large booths at this event. A bi-annual event focused on the forest products industry, TP&EE takes place at the Portland Exposition Center and features over 200 exhibitors.
In booth 359, Samuel PSG packaging experts are setting up a new SLP-25 compression strapping machine – and after the show, it will be delivered to a customer on the Pacific coast– a ‘win-win’ opportunity to provide cost-effective assembly and on-site technical support to a customer who made a timely investment in this new solution.
In Booth 409, Samuel PSG will have their industry-proven Model 600 lumber barcode system on display; it is capable of printing and applying unique bar code labels in excess of 200 boards per minute. Lumber customers will also be interested to see Samuel PSG’s high-definition grade mark printing system now featuring premium print head stalls.
Samuel PSG’s robust GEN2 print heads have become the new standard for the demanding APA grade mark printing on panels. The print heads are now fully integrated into Samuel PSG’s newest automatic package stencil system for eye-popping, high contrast stencils.
With positive news over the past few years related to US housing starts, it is anticipated that wood products producers will be investing in new machinery and systems that deliver operational and packaging efficiencies. After years of cost-cutting and delayed capital budgets to help businesses survive the downturn in the economy, the industry is increasing production volumes and the future is looking brighter. Samuel PSG is pleased to be providing innovative packaging, unitizing, ink jet printing and labeling solutions as part of their commitment as a strategic supplier to the industry.
