Polybags, commonly made from polyethylene and polypropylene have many uses. The versatile, flexible material is often used to package food, clothing and also small parts and components.
We have several solutions well-suited for coding or marking polybags.
On-line coding using thermal inkjet or thermal transfer
For printing small amounts of information, for example a best before date or batch number, a thermal inkjet (TIJ) printer is ideal. Our specially formulated ink offers great adhesion to the substrate, resulting in a clear, permanent print.
If there is a requirement to print a large amount of text, for example an ingredients’ declaration, a thermal transfer (TTO) printer can be used.
Printing polybags off-line
Achieving consistent codes onto filled polybags can be tricky, so the process is often taken away from the line (off-line). We have several feeders, which when fitted with a printer, coder or labeller of your choice, offer a complete standalone coding system – ideal for the feeding and printing/labelling of your polybags, maximising efficiency and offering flexibility where needed.
