Optimum carton coding may be achieved off-line using a carton coding system or on-line, using clean, maintenance-free thermal inkjet (TIJ) technology. If a particularly large print is needed, the Integra PP Razr 34 may be used – the innovative Piezo printer can create high-quality, seamless prints on varnished and unvarnished cartons on areas up to 34mm high.
Coding cartons on-line
Thermal inkjet (TIJ) printers are compact, reliable and easy to integrate, making them ideal for integration with existing equipment, including cartoners.
The clean, maintenance-free technology produces high-resolution prints, including serial numbers and GS1 code, at high speeds, making it a popular choice for pharmaceutical companies. Similarly, manufacturers of cosmetic products benefit from the small 1mm text that can be clearly and discreetly printed onto their cartons.
