The Avery Dennison Monarch Freshmarx 9417+ Food Labeling System from its Printer and Fastener Solutions (PFS) Division, is designed to make food safety compliance labeling simple and reliable. Characterized as “the most flexible and robust food labeling printing system on the market,” it combines a single or dual-head printer with intuitive Freshmarx software and a touchscreen interface to provide “an all-in-one, compact solution designed for food service environments.” Supporting 15 languages and equipped with 21 standard label formats, the system creates barcode labels for inventory or point-of-sale scanning, ensuring labeling consistency across multiple locations.

“The Monarch Freshmarx 9417+ Solution is an easy-to-use, automated system that takes a majority of the guesswork out of food safety through precise, efficient and responsible technology,” said Erik Shafer, Global Vice President of Printer and Fastener Solutions at Avery Dennison. “We’re proud to launch the new industry benchmark, which allows us to protect customers across the globe while simultaneously providing advanced technology that improves operational efficiencies.”

The 9417+ provides accurate ingredient, nutrition and shelf-life labels. With the ability to access pre-stored data and integrate audible timers to track food preparation, the system provides maximum accuracy in shelf-life calculations. As a result, the printing system can provide patrons with precise freshness data, help eliminate health-code violations for illegible labels, and reduce imprecise food waste.

It includes a built-in wall mount for eye-level operation and workspace optimization, and is UL listed. In addition, it delivers automated updates via its dual-band Wi-Fi option, allowing remote updates from a central location, with no on-site employee intervention required. The printer protects data via a secure SFTP and support updates via Ethernet or USB, offering safe operation while decreasing management and inventory costs in the process. From batch printing in various print formats to staff training via its integrated video and document viewer, the solution “is an intuitive system for any food service company looking to improve operations,” said the company.
