Our quality

The quality of Arca labels and sleeves begins with the design phase: scope, requirements, revisions and validation. Everything is documented, in accordance with ISO9001 standards, in order to arrive at a product that guarantees and meets the user’s needs. Hence the choices: inspired by GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices), from state-of- the-art graphics/papermaking to carefully troubleshooting for non-compliances, with decades of experience.

At Arca, excellence is in our DNA, and perhaps this is why our labels have always had that something extra. The selection of materials, laboratory tests, and the best printing machines, automaticed control systems that verify 100% of the product, a check list that documents the passion and pride we take in our work. And lastly, the batch release, overseen by experts who are attentive to every detail.

The total cost of quality management is nil. And it generates profits, by cutting back on waste, avoiding returns and claims, and above all guaranteeing customer satisfaction. For customers who have chosen Arca.

A scrupulous quality control

Quality must be built up during every step of the production process, making the right choices right from the start, based on rigorous and documented processes that are executed by responsible operators following a meticulous check list.

Arca also makes available functions that are specifically dedicate to quality control for each and every production lot, before delivery to the client. The “batch release” phase is performed by a qualified staff using automated equipment; label samples produced are systematically compared to graphics files approved by the customer and subjected to specific tests depending on the type of label and the product target industry.

Troubleshooting occurs within our production cycle, to avoid any inconveniences for customers and ensure prompt intervention.

Arca’s “Quality Control” lab is perfectly well equipped with instruments that are periodically calibrated and validated, conducting all primary FINAT tests (International Federation of processors and producers of self-adhesive materials). The laboratory therefore supports incoming material control procedures, examinations of claims with technical causes, and above all, research and testing to find appropriate solutions to meet all customer requirements.

Our advantages
In-house pre-print services

All our printing plates are produced in-house, ensuring the best production process controls and absolute flexibility in planning operations. Arca makes available all conventional printing systems: flexography, lithography, screen printing, heat decorations and mixed media. The printing plates, i.e. polymer blocks, matrices, plane and rotary frames, are manufactured in Arca’s photolithography department, using the most advanced CTP (computer to plate) processes, which adopt solvent-free environmentally friendly washing systems. Eliminating the passage through photographic film (CTF, removes the risk of mechanical deterioration while enhancing definition and guaranteeing the utmost accuracy in the positioning of images on matrices.

Moreover, with digital printing, graphic files are transferred from the Desktop Publisher (which employs advanced specialized software) directly to the printing machine, thereby speeding up the process and doing away with the costs and risks of deteriorating printing plates. Thanks to Arca’s advanced “in house” pre-print services, flexibility is assured, with complete control over the quality of the graphic process … right from the start!

Traceability of materials

Both raw and auxiliary materials (inks, paints, laminates, etc.) used for each production lot are traced with accuracy. All self-adhesive primary materials are identified upon receipt by type of front pattern, adhesive and liner, supplier and destination order. At every step of the transformation process, automated optical systems ensure traceability (from the warehouses to the production departments), which is recorded in the order documentation, and specified in detail in the core of each roll of labels. This way, should any non-compliances arise, Arca can immediately trace back the production lots of materials used, to localize faults, isolate potentially defective batches, and deliberately intervene with facts at hand.

In terms of quality management, the traceability system for materials is totally integrated with the logistical management of inventories: when production starts, the precise quantities effectively consumed are recorded and automatically downloaded from the warehouses. Maximum efficiency, no waste, and no stock shortages.

Digital printing and just-in-time deliveries

Digital technology (toner and inkjet) allows us to provide unsurpassed service, in catering to small batches, including divided and in multiple variations. Arca’s customers are thus assured the very best off-set print quality at unbeatable prices, without having to sustain the cost of physical printing matrices.

Thanks to a modern computer system that’s integrated in all phases of the order process, pre-printing and production, orders can be processed quickly, minimizing errors and with maximum efficiency.

Medium / large print runs, which are even cheaper if produced using conventional printing techniques, can be stored in a special warehouse, maintained by and at Arca’s expense. Customers can call for periodic deliveries according to their needs, receiving just what they need and at the right time – while being able to count on immediate availability in case of an emergency.
