Astrapak JJ Precision is the fifth Astrapak site to go live using TransLution. JJ Precision’s manufacturing operation produces moulds for the food and beverage, personal care, petrochemical and industrial/ automotive sectors.

At this site, TransLution is used to print Job labels and to scan items for job receipt purposes. All job receipts are posted to SYSPRO and once boxes have been receipted, they can be packed onto a pallet as part of a pallet building process. There are also scanning functions to post raw material issues to jobs.

In addition to the production scanning, there are also various warehouse inventory scanning transactions where items can be moved between bins in the same warehouse or they can be put into transit at the source warehouse and taken out of transit once they reach the destination warehouse. All of these transactions are posted directly to SYSPRO.

There are a range of printing and re-printing functions supported and TransLution is used to print Job labels, Pallet labels and Goods in Transit documents. TransLution is also used to post and print Dispatch notes as goods are dispatched against a sales order.

As with the other Astrapak sites, TransLution is also used to assist with stock-take process by allowing a scanner-based stock-take to be done and the results posted directly to SYSPRO.
