Working in the most challenging environments, food manufacturers need to be able to code and mark a diverse range of packaging materials, safely and reliably.
Sleeves, Bags & Pouches
Sleeves, bags & pouches are the most popular forms of packaging for food, but they each come with their own set of coding challenges.
With sleeves, certain print areas may be hard to access, tall tubs or pots can prove difficult to feed down a line, and when placed around trays sleeves can move, making accurate code placement problematic.
Presenting flexible packaging such as bags or pouches to a printer can be challenging because bags can prove difficult to detect on a conveyor, filled bags create an uneven print surface and pouches, particularly quick-lock, present unique coding and marking challenges, especially when a large area print is required.
However, for all the above we can offer solutions to accommodate a wide range of size and materials, both online and offline.
Coding and marking solutions for food packaging
Over the years we have worked with numerous food producers and manufacturers, offering our knowledge and expertise to help provide them with the best solution to print variable information such as: use by/best before dates, batch numbers, barcodes, 2D codes and simple graphics as well as large areas of text such as: full ingredients declaration or nutritional information.
Although printing products online as part of the production process is generally favoured it is not always possible. We can offer both online and offline solutions to best suit the application in question.
