TEKLYNX and Epson partner for GHS compliant chemical labelling solution


Epson America and TEKLYNX International, a specialist developer of barcode labelling software solutions, announced a partnership to offer a turnkey solution for Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) compliant chemical labelling

Embedded native printer drivers offer many benefits to the users of Epson’s ColorWorks printers, including true WYSIWYG (“What You See Is What You Get”) printing technology, which results in less wasted label stock and high-quality colour labels.

“As GHS-compliant chemical labelling continues to be adopted, the demand for a one-step label printing solution that delivers fast, efficient and durable colour label printing has become increasingly important for companies looking to enhance their workflow and meet labelling concerns for on-demand packaging labels,” said Andrew Moore, Product Manager, Epson America.

“Our strategic partnership with TEKLYNX and its ongoing investment in the development of native printer drivers creates the opportunity for us to offer the most seamless, turnkey solution for on-demand colour labelling.”

With the increase of industry standards and government regulations that specifically require the use of colour, colour label printing continues to grow in importance for manufacturers of all sizes from localised to global manufacturing environments.

Colour provides additional levels of visual communication by enabling the inclusion of bold safety warnings that catch attention and draw the eye to critical information.

By creating native printer drivers for Epson colour label printers such as the ColorWorks C7500, the TEKLYNX solution helps chemical manufacturers comply with industry standards and government regulations, such as the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), which requires the inclusion of specific pictogrammes, rendered in colour, to help classify hazardous materials.

“The partnership between TEKLYNX and Epson offers our shared chemical manufacturing customers the industry’s best overall colour labelling solution for GHS compliance, giving our customers peace of mind,” said Doug Niemeyer, General Manager at TEKLYNX.
