On-line coding using thermal inkjet or thermal transfer
For printing small amounts of information, for example a use by or best before date code, an inkjet printer can be used. When a large amount of information needs to be printed, for example a product description or ingredients’ declaration, a Thermal Transfer (TTO) printer is used.
Printing bags or pouches off-line
When using pre-made pouches or trying to code onto filled packs, coding on-line becomes problematic. For these applications, an off-line coding system is ideal to maximise efficiency and ensure consistent, quality printed codes, as pouches can be printed offline before they are filled, and brought to the production line ready printed.
Both our RF Auto and RF Pouch feeding systems are designed to handle pouches with ease.
