Custom Bag Manufacturing Tuesday 25 July 2017 @ 08:30

Harcor has manufactured a broad range of customised bags since 1969. Some of the bag styles being manufactured include emergency, mail, pizza and security bags. The bag manufacture methodology for getting a new bag design ready for production includes: project kickoff, design and approval.

Project kickoff

Upon receipt of a bag design brief, the project team will review the brief in terms of intended use, volume required, size and material to be used. At this point the production, delivery time frames and any special requests the client has are established.

Bag Manufacturer -Custom Designs

Design & Approval

A draft design will be submitted to the client for review and approval. The design will be shaped by the client’s input and will factor the bags dimensions, material, position of zips, if required, and other features such as insulation for example. For complex bags Harcor will always provide a prototype for approval by the client before production commences.

Complying with ISO’s 17712 High Security Seal Standards Tuesday 20 June 2017 @ 09:16

The ISO developed a voluntary international standard including specifications and requirements for a security seals to be classified as “High Security”.

ISO 17712 Security Seals

Harcor is able to demonstrate that the “High Security” seals that have been classified as ISO 17712 compliant meet the international standard. This is confirmed by certification from an accredited independent laboratory. The laboratory conducts testing to ensure that the security seal has the required built-in tamper evidence features needed to meet the standard’s specifications. The laboratory conducting the testing should be accredited according to ISO procedures, such as ISO 17025.

The type of seals that are eligible for “High Security Seal” classification must be made from metal and therefore Bolt Security Seals and Cable Security Seal models are eligible for ISO 17712 classification.

Including an “H” mark on the locking body and bolt is one of the requirements for a Bolt Security Seal to comply with ISO 17712:2013. This is an easy element to inspect. Other requirements include strength characteristics, durability against weather, chemicals and tampering.

C-TPAT is a government program run by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Bureau that states “…a high security seal must be affixed to all loaded containers bound for the U.S. and all seals must meet or exceed the current ISO 17712 standards for high security seals.”

Harcor stock a range of High Security Seals that fully comply with C-TPAT as they have been ISO 17712:2013 high security seal certified. Please see the C-TPAT security seals webpage or contact us if you require information on any cargo security matters.

Exact Software has published an in-depth article profiling Harcor this month. Thursday 20 April 2017 @ 08:30

The article features Harcor’s success relating to the deployment of custom ordering portals and the use of a unique security seal serial number tracking module.

When security seals are removed, the serial number is normally checked against the manifest or security log. The integrity and accuracy of the serial numbers being processed are vital in supply chain operations. Errors such as number duplication can lead to product recall and theft. Harcor fully understand the significant importance of serial number management, tracking millions of new serial numbers every year. The Exact & Track serial number tracking module was developed by Exact Software in conjunction with Harcor to securely store serial number data, protect against serial number duplication, enable fast serial numbering and tracking of security seals.

The ordering portal technology utilised by Harcor allows specific customers to have a unique individual ordering system with real-time stock information. As a result the customer places the order fully aware of the availability of supply. Customers can also re-order past orders, review them or save “favourite” orders, which can easily be repeated. Running numerous Synergy ECP ordering portals, tailored for use by some of Australia’s largest security and retail business, Harcor were sought out by Exact Software to comment on its appeal.

Have you ever wondered why black is not a popular Security Seal colour? Monday 20 February 2017 @ 09:24

Polypropylene being a thermoplastic polymer is the preferred material to use when manufacturing plastic seals. This is due to the material warping and burning easily when heated compared to other plastics such as Nylon. If an effort is made to tamper with the polypropylene security seal and reattach two parts via a heating technique the tampering would be clearly noticeable. The example photographed below shows the blue S Grip Security Seal revealing tampering. The material's colour changes to black when heated. The colour change would have not been noticeable had the seal colour been black.

Security Seal Example

Security Seal Recommendations

Harcor plastic security seals are serial numbered. These serial numbers serve as a unique identifier. Harcor recommends having a procedure in place to record the numbers prior to use and removal. Security seals should be stored in a secure location. All security seals should be inspected for tampering before removal. A comparison should always be made against a known genuine seal. You can view the range of Harcor’s Security Seals here or contact us now to discuss how we can assist you.
