As well as supplying new Weighing and Labelling equipment we are also able to provide Continuous Ink Jet (CIJ) printing technology for your production line.
CIJ works by expelling electrically-charged ink droplets from a printhead nozzle and passing them through an electric field. Each ink droplet is tiny - just half the diameter of a human hair - and up to 120,000 of them are expelled every second. Because it's a non-contact printing method, CIJ is versatile.
It can print on most materials, regardless of porosity, size, shape or texture. What's more, its solvent-based ink dries instantly, so it's perfect for printing onto products as they move along the production lines. CIJ is used mainly to print variable information on individual products - such as dates, times, specific text, batch codes, product names and logos. This is particularly useful for providing traceability data and for complying with increasingly strict industry legislation.

Laser coders use a concentrated beam of light, deflected by mirrors through a lens to form characters. Codes are permanent and the integrity of the packaging is maintained. Material or coating is either removed from the substrate - such as the top microns of ink from paper packaging to reveal bare card beneath - or the chemical nature of the packaging is changed to leave a mark or colour change. Ideal for high speed, high volume applications.

"SureService provided us with a solution that enabled QK meats to continue supplying our major customer without having to make whole machine line changes. We have been operating with the Gemini Lightning equipment for many years now and it has been a solid performer for our needs. The whole process was delivered as planned and to timescale and budget. Following the refurbishment and upgrades machine performance and reliability has improved dramatically".Paul Harris, Operations Manager - QK Meats Pty South Africa
"When we decided it was time to order a new labeller we were introduced to the LP400 range of VWS equipment by our local engineer. Having looked after the labelling machines on our site for many years we were able to fully trust his recommendations. The new labeller was delivered on time and installed efficiently. We were trained on the machine by the engineer following installation and he also attended to install our required product formats and templates."Ben Gibbon, Factory Manager - D. Gibbon & Son
"When looking for a quick solution to an impending project we were offered the choice of 2nd user and new equipment and ultimately were able to order a combination of both. The 2nd User Gemini was delivered first and was installed before the scheduled requirement date. It looked immaculate considering it wasn't a brand new machine. Installation was fast and efficient. The new Octopus Automatic was delivered three weeks later and Sureservice Ltd arranged all special transport, etc. to ensure we had the machine when we needed it"Alistair King, Engineer and Projects Manager - Tulip Boston
