New from Rotech, a low-cost coding system for printing date and batch codes onto pouches and resealable bags. The RF Lite – Pouch Edition – has been designed to reliably print small amounts of variable information onto flat form pouches at an impressive throughput rate of 30-50 products per minute.
Assisting with coding automation since 2016
The ever-popular RF Lite has been helping companies to automate their date coding process since 2016. The compact coding system, first launched at Foodex is still unrivalled in the industry in terms of performance and cost, and is still as relevant in the industry today, with many manufacturers still struggling with labour intensive, manual coding processes.
The original system, which uses friction rollers to guide the flat packaging under the printer, is perfect for feeding food sleeves and uniform cartons but has it’s limitations when it comes to running cartons below a certain size. This lead to the development of the RF Lite – Shuttle Edition – in 2020. The shuttle variant uses a reciprocating plate to feed each carton with no limit on size in the direction of feed. This allows for easy handling of the small carton packs, commonly used in the vape and cosmetic industries.
