Ashland, Virginia (PRWEB) July 23, 2014-- Up to now, measuring the quality parameters of very different alcoholic beverages required a number of measuring instruments to cover each range. There was no single instrument which could measure beers, wines and spirits. To meet this need, Anton Paar provides the Alcolyzer ME measuring module, which makes it possible to measure the alcohol content of all alcoholic beverages with a single alcohol meter, just by selecting the appropriate method. This greatly simplifies work for contract bottlers and multi-product beverage manufacturers, governmental test labs, customs and tax laboratories and companies involved in the development of new beverages.

July, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta, Canada – iSys Label and iSys–The Imaging Systems Group Inc., the Canadian developers and manufacturers of short- to mid-run digital label printers, announced that the EDGE 850 digital label printer is officially Section 3 Certified to print GHS-compliant drum and chemical labels* according to BS5609 standards. In order to print fully-compliant drum and chemical labels; the facestock, adhesive and printed graphic all need to meet the requirements for sections 1, 2 and 3 of BS5609 standards and be independently tested and certified by PIRA (the Print Industry Research Association). The printed labels are exposed to artificial weathering, tape removal and abrasion resistance tests to ensure they are capable of withstanding the harshest environments and prove their durability. During this process, iSys Label partnered with MACtac to find two suitable solutions for substrates; a PET, and a BOPP – both of which passed certification and can be purchased in rolls from iSys-appointed converters in the United States. In addition to the certification, GHS also requires users to conform to labeling standards that use the black and red pictogram system in conjunction with precautionary text warning of the dangers and risks of the material. The EDGE 850 “GHS Solution” is a roll to roll digital label printer and comes complete with the printer, feeder, rewinder and EDGE2Print software. With easy-to-use drag and drop software and print speeds of 4.33 m/min and 9.13 m/min., iSys Label makes simple work of printing full-color chemical labels on demand. Users will eliminate the need for ordering pre-printed labels, reduce inventories and wait times by being able to customize their labels with variable information and full color - all in a single pass. Mark Hopkins, president of iSys, says “iSys is very excited to be fully certified and in compliance. The combination of the materials, toner and printing process have proven their durability and is sure to add value to supply chains, large and small, around the world.” iSys Label will be showing the EDGE 850 GHS label printer in booth #6413 at Labelexpo Americas, taking place September 9-11th in Chicago, IL.
