Printing onto Flow Wrap and Flexible Packaging

Printing traceability codes onto films, flow wrap and other flexible packaging can often be difficult unless the right ink or printer installation is used. Codetronix can offer the options of either Easyprint thermal transfer printers or Citronix Continuous ink jet printers.

Easyprint thermal transfer printers can print very high resolution date codes and batch codes onto flexible film before the packet or bag is formed. By installing onto flow wrappers (HFFS) or bagging (VFFS) machines, they are compact and efficient printers that use ribbons to produce high quality codes including barcodes and graphics. Easyprint thermal transfer printers can replace existing hot stamp machines to give real time coding as well as being an easy swap-out for existing thermal transfer printers.

Citronix continuous ink jet printers are the perfect printers for bakery and biscuit coding, and excellent for printing simple codes onto the final product, where a potentially non-uniform surface is presented or different materials are used across multiple production lines. A wide range of inks ensure that difficult to print surfaces are handled with ease.

Labelling Loaves

Labelling of delicate or fragile products like bread or cakes is best achieved by a non-contact blow applicator. This leaves the product untouched but with accurate label placement. Very high labelling speeds can be achieved as there is no cycle time for an applicator. Our M230i labellers with blow on applicators are ideal for this type of product.

Labelling Packs and Thermoformed Clamshell Trays

Packs and ‘clamshell’ containers can be labelled with a tamper evident seal or over the edge label using our Intrex label applicators. By adding a coding machine such as an ink jet or thermal transfer printer to the labeller it is possible to printer variable information such as date or batch codes onto the label before it is applied.

Printing and Labelling Boxes, Cases and Trays

If you need to apply a label onto cases, boxes or tray our print and apply labellers are ideal. With top, side, corner wrap or front apply labellers we can cope with almost any requirement or speed. For higher speeds we can supply tandem or alternative pack labelling systems. 4” and 6” labellers are available in thermal transfer or direct thermal (ribbonless) versions. 600m ribbon rolls and tool-less printhead mean downtime is kept to a minimum helping to improve overall line efficiencies.

Our labellers can be provided with label creation software or can be interfaced with existing software packages such as Bartender, Nicelabel or Easylabel.

Pallet Labelling

Pallet labelling needs to be precise, reliable and consistent. Our pallet labellers are compact with short labelling cycles to apply one, two or three A5 labels to the front and sides of pallets typically with only one stop of the pallet. This means that shorter pallet conveyor lengths are needed. The aluminium cabinet construction means this is a cost-effective solution; for beverage or dairy applications where large amounts of water may be present, stainless steel cabinets with sealed doors and pneumatic sliding doors for the applicator help protect the important components.

Software is provided with the pallet labellers for label creation and to interface into your own systems. Part pallets can also be accommodated.
