The company demonstrated the SmartTouch™ operator interface networked with the SmartDate® 3 Plus thermal-transfer coder and SmartLase™ 1 Plus laser coder at interpack in Germany.

All 3 products support the PackML “state model” a term used to describe whether a packaging machine is running down on standby etc. The state model which is intended to simplify packaging machine networking and integration was recently released by the OMAC (Open Modular Architecture Controls) Packaging Workgroup.
