GS1 is a neutral, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the design and implementation of global standards and solutions to improve the efficiency and visibility of supply and demand chains globally and across sectors. The organization has more than 2 million members globally and member organizations in over 100 countries.
Trident had to undergo rigorous tests to demonstrate that its impulse inkjet technology can produce high quality symbols at high speeds and in-line with GS1 General Specifications. Trident's impulse ink jet printhead employs a piezoelectric crystal that changes shape when an electric field is applied across it. Reportedly, this technology allows Trident to produce high quality GS1 128 symbols encoded with variable information. The technology can help companies implement GS1 traceability solutions, reduce costs, and fulfill customer requirements more efficiently.
"Trident is very proud to have achieved this prestigious GS1 certification,” explained Des O´Neill, European Business Manager at Trident. “We are firmly committed to producing technologies capable of printing consistent, verifiable, readable, and cost-effective GS1 barcodes. This certification will enable our OEM partners to deliver complete printing systems, employing Trident printheads and ink, to the end-use market secure in the knowledge that these components have met strict GS1 criteria for superior bar code production.”
