CODING SYSTEM SELECTION GUIDE
We offer coding systems for both bottles and containers as well as secondary case packaging. Depending on what needs to be coded, the speed of the line, the amount of information and how dynamic that information is, we specify and integrate hot stamp, inkjet, laser, ink on demand and print and apply technologies into our turnkey filling lines.
Non-contact printer for small character coding of containers and bottles. Prints up to 3 lines of text, bar codes and logos from 2 to 10mm high at speeds up to 800 fpm. Capable of multinational character printing, serial codes, current/expiration time, date coding and shift coding in red or black ink. System permits infrequent cleaning of the print head (for up to 30 days) and is ideal for intermittent operation that is typical of slower speed lines or contract packaging jobs.
Hot stamp coders allow for production, expiration dates and other information to be printed on labels as they are applied to the container. The hot stamp coder uses a heated imprint plate and brass typeset characters to immediately transfer and dry ink onto the labels. This simple device uses no liquid inks or solvents and is extremely reliable.
Laser coders deliver affordable, steered-beam laser coding to a wide variety of applications where ink and solvents are not permitted in the production environment. This is particularly true in pharmaceutical and some food packaging operations. This laser printer offers clean, permanent, superior quality codes on a variety of materials.
