Exporta launches new technology to boost offering to customers

It’s a busy time in the Exporta production centre this July. We’re excited to announce that we have just installed two new pieces of technology we think will be of huge benefit to our customer base. We’re constantly looking for new ways to be innovative and to make life easier for anyone who chooses to work with Exporta, and we think our latest additions will do just that.

Digital Printing Machine Something that is key to our customers is product branding. This can mean five Euro Containers with a logo on the side or thousands of pallets with a logo and sequential numbering.

We’ve offered this service for years now, but we’re delighted to have installed a new digital printing machine in-house, meaning we can provide product printing quicker, and to a higher standard. Head of technology and product development John Wilkin has been involved with this project from the start and is delighted to see his plans come to fruition. ‘We know how important branding can be, so to make it easier for customers to get this from Exporta has been an important goal. This investment is something that will immediately add value to our offering.’

The new machine, installed at the end of June, is up and running and ready to go. It’s designed to work on any plastic product with a large enough surface area to print on meaning it will work with the majority of products in the Exporta range. So, what’s the benefit of branding your goods?

Brand exposure, identification, and the prevention of lost or stolen goods. Sending out your goods within branded containers or pallets provides a strong opportunity for additional advertising and brand exposure. You can also add details like a phone number and a web address.

This also helps to ensure your goods aren’t lost or stolen as they are clearly marked. In terms of identification, you can use printing to add things like sequential numbering or colour coding to your products to aid in picking and general warehouse operations.

Pallet Load Testing How often have you been on the cusp of purchasing a new pallet for your system, but you’ve been unsure how the pallet will perform with your standard goods load? This no longer needs to be a concern, as at Exporta we’ve installed a load testing machine to test your load on a potential pallet for you.

This is a unique offering to the UK market and something that has taken months of planning, but now we’re delighted to be able to pass the benefits of our new technology on to our customers. The system allows us to measure the performance of a pallet on racking and on a forklift. The width of the racking can be tailored to match the racking the pallet will be used on.

We can test both racking pallets as well as testing nestable pallets for their dynamic load and we can then provide an approved report on the results to give you confidence when you’re purchasing a pallet for your warehouse or shipping system. So how does it work? We measure the deflection of the pallet with your load over a 24-hour period, and then measure the time it takes to return to its original form once the load has been removed.

We can then ensure that the pallet meets the regulation deflection tolerance as required by ISO8611. Working with Exporta We’re constantly looking for ways to make our customers lives easier, especially when it comes to staying compliant and efficient.

We believe our latest technology is another step towards doing this. When you choose to add Exporta to your team, we work with you to ensure you get the best out of the goods you buy from us as well as the system you’re operating. Get in touch with us to discuss how you can make use of our new technology and discover more about what other useful services and products we offer.

We are an ISO9001 and ISO14001 supplier and with sustainability at the core of our company, you can be sure you’re working with an environmentally focused partner. Exporta t: 0800 294 4394
