SunMed Growers, Maryland’s largest medical cannabis grower, keeps a keen eye on futureproof technologies that can holistically enrich its products, employees’ work lives and business. With an eye on the future, they were looking to eliminate some of the manual tasks associated with packaging and automate operations to cut back on wasted time and materials. It needed a state-of-the-art packaging operation to mirror the technology implemented in its other departments, such as its world-class cultivation facility.
To do that, the SunMed Growers team worked closely with the label printing experts at Integrated Productivity Systems (IPSi) to implement a custom print-and-apply labeling system featuring the Epson ColorWorks industrial, on-demand color label printer and the Epson VT6L 6-Axis robot. The Epson system is a truly automated, flexible robotic print-and-apply solution for printing high-quality color labels next-label out.
