Coding & marking solutions for pet supplies


Mess and odour-free, our high-resolution thermal inkjet (TIJ) printers are ideal for printing batch numbers and date codes directly onto pouches, sleeves, lids, flow wraps and bags.

Where there is a requirement to print a large amount of text, for example an ingredients declaration, a thermal transfer (TTO) printer can be supplied.


Our innovative range of feeding and handling systems are ideal for pet supplies packaging. We have several solutions for pouches – an increasingly popular choice for pet food packaging.

These systems can be easily fitted with the coding and/or labelling technology of your choice. Thermal transfer (TTO) is ideal for printing large amounts of information, whereas for a simple date or batch code, thermal inkjet (TIJ) is the favourable choice.

Secondary packaging

For outer cases, our high-resolution large area printers offer a low-maintenance, high-speed alternative to labelling. The innovative systems are capable of printing verifiable barcodes, text, and graphics on areas up to 500mm wide.

  • You can have the best machine in the world but if staff don’t buy into it, you won’t get good results. All our operators found the RF Lite to be easy to use; they had no trouble switching between different sleeves and calling up the correct expiry dates for each customer.

  • Our new sleeve feeder has saved us so much time, allowing us to carry out other tasks. We no longer have to hand-stamp each pack. The service we recieved has been excellent too. The engineer was very helpful and showed us how to set up the printer and we've even added our logo.


  • The print quality is awesome. It is clean and precise - you can read it even at a font size of 0.4. The bar codes are also very clear, which is important to the fishing shops we supply, as they don’t want to have to deal with illegible bar codes.
