Food & Drink

Print crucial information on food packaging and invest in a reliable, efficient solution that produces quality codes without disrupting production.

On-line 

Our versatile thermal inkjet (TIJ) printers are perfect for printing variable information, such as a Batch Code, Use By or Best Before date codes onto almost all types of food & drink packaging, cleanly and cost-effectively. Compact and extremely easy to integrate into existing lines, TIJ printers are the ideal solution for coding your cartons, sleeves, flexible films, lids and more. 

Off-line 

We have a comprehensive range of feeding and handling systems for almost any type of food packaging. The product being printed onto and the information required will determine which system is right for you. 

Secondary packaging

For secondary packaging, our large area printers offer a cost-effective, low-maintenance alternative to labelling. These systems are able to print verifiable barcodes, text and graphics on areas up to 500mm wide.

These printers can be fitted to an existing conveyor or supplied with a Rotech conveyor.

We felt they had more expertise than the other coding companies we saw and that made us confident that they would adjust the coder to suit our sleeves rather than simply selling us a standard machine.
