Bags & Pouches

Printing onto flexible films, foil and paper based bags and pouches

Rotech provide a range of coding and marking solutions for pre-formed bags or pouches. Typical applications include printing onto food, medical and industrial products. Our solutions accommodate a wide range of size and materials for both online or offline use including feeding systems and printers available.

If only a small amount of information is to be printed on the product, such as a ‘use by’ or ‘best before’ date, an inkjet printer could be used. When a large amount of information needs to be printed, for example: a product description or ingredients’ declaration, a Thermal Transfer (TTO) printer is used.


Thermal inkjet is an ideal online printing solution as it’s easily integrated into machines that wrap a flexible packaging material (e.g. paper, aluminium, plastic film) around a product or group of products. Other common descriptions of this style of packaging are flow-wrapping, overwrapping and horizontal form fill seal.

Solvent ink used in thermal inkjet can print on a variety of flexible packaging films including: Polypropylene, Polyethylene, HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene) Nylon, EVOH (Ethylene Vinyl Alcohol) and all commonly used co-extrusion and laminated films. Speeds up to 240 m/minute and 50 prints per second are achievable, and with the free label creation software package is networkable to customers ERP via ethernet wireless or USB.
