Thermal Inkjet printer print on flow wrapper and film

Flow Wrap & Film

Integrate high quality coding and marking technology onto existing flow wrappers and production line equipment

Flow-wrapping (or horizontal wrapping) is a popular and cost-effective method of packaging products in protective plastic films or foils consisting of clear or printed polypropylene films. Flow wrap is a great choice for packaging many items – from food products to electric components and more.


Our maintenance-free thermal inkjet printers can be easily integrated with flow wrap machinery, applying fixed or variable data, without slowing down or causing disruption to the line.

These printers are used to reliably print date and batch codes, barcodes and even small graphics onto multiple substrates used in flow wrapping, such as aluminium, BOPP, multi-layer laminate and paper. The result is a clear, high-quality print… time and time again.
