FastKetch Tags

Claude Lalonde | July 3, 2012

At Ketchum Manufacturing Inc. we manufacture a number of different identification products for many different sectors from seafood to livestock and poultry and we have been doing this for 100 years.

One of the seafood tags we produce is called Fastketch tags. Ketchum's Fastketch Seafood Plastic Tags are made from .020 PVC plastic and measure 1" x 1-1/8" in size. These tags can be printed in a variety of different colours on one or two sides of the tag. Each food grade approved plastic tag has a 1 inch by 1 inch printable surface and an arrow shaped tab that secures the tag in a gill plate.

Fastketch tags are a great way to display your company logo, or simply inform customers which type of fish they are buying or whether the product is organic, you can also include your website address so customer can search for more of your products or simply get more information on the product purchased. Our fastketch tags can also be consecutively or lot numbered.

Ketchum's Fastketch tagging system is designed to tag fish at up to 200 fish per minute. Tags are sold heat sealed into bundles of 150 tags for quick and easy loading of the tagging unit. Our tagging system can be used on whole fish, head on gill gutted fish, head off fish, or fillets and steaks.

Ketchum Manufacturing also offers tagging applicators which provide for a fast and easy method to attached the tags to the fish, these gun applicators are compressed air driven. The model 200F has an apparatus designed to bend the tag at an angle parallel to the fish which is ideal for packaging. The model 2830-210 has identical performance but leaves the tags standing up for eye catching presentation on fillets and steaks at the seafood counter. The complete tag applicator kit which can be purchased includes applicator, extension hose, suspension pulley and regulators.

The tagging system is usually sold with a suspension pulley system allowing it to be suspended from a ceiling.

Note: Not designed to tag products after they are frozen.
