TEKLYNX and Epson Partner on Turnkey GHS Compliant Chemical Labeling Solution

NEW YORK – Oct. 31, 2017 – Epson America, Inc. and TEKLYNX International, the world’s leading developer of barcode labeling software solutions, today announced a partnership to offer a turnkey solution for Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) compliant chemical labeling. Featured at the Chem Show 2017, Oct. 31-Nov. 2 at the Javits Center in New York City, the GHS-compliant chemical labeling solution leverages decades of experience from TEKLYNX and Epson to offer color chemical labeling for manufacturing environments of all sizes.

At the Chem Show 2017, Epson and TEKLYNX will demonstrate the seamless interaction of the TEKLYNX barcode label design software, CODESOFT, andEpson’s ColorWorks® C7500 inkjet on-demand color label printer, made possible with TEKLYNX embedded native printer drivers. 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 color labels. 

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

With the increase of industry standards and government regulations that specifically require the use of color, color label printing continues to grow in importance for manufacturers of all sizes from localized to global manufacturing environments. Color 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 color 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 pictograms, rendered in color, to help classify hazardous materials.

“The partnership between TEKLYNX and Epson offers our shared chemical manufacturing customers the industry’s best overall color labeling solution for GHS compliance, giving our customers peace of mind. We’re excited to partner with Epson to showcase our combined solutions in action at the upcoming Chem Show”, says Doug Niemeyer, general manager, TEKLYNX.

Epson and TEKLYNX color label solutions are on display at the Chem Show 2017 from Oct. 31 to Nov. 2 in booth #437, where live demonstrations of color labels designed with CODESOFT will be printing to Epson ColorWorks C7500, C3500 and C831 printers.
