Print high-quality text and codes onto polybags

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 solutions for coding polybags

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.

When a large amount of information needs to be printed, for example a product description or ingredients’ declaration, the Integra PP Razr 34 may be used – the innovative Piezo printer can create high-quality, seamless prints on porous & non porous substrates on areas up to 34mm high.

Thermal transfer (TTO) printers are also capable of producing excellent-quality, large prints onto polybags. A print is made by placing thermal transfer ribbon between a heated printhead and the product. The heat passes through the ribbon, releasing the ink, which adheres to the substrate, cooling rapidly, resulting in a permanent print.

Off-line solutions for coding polybags

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.
