With a thermal inkjet printer, you can also print good quality bar codes, 2D codes and simple logos. We supply the betaJET verso TIJ from KBA-Metronic. We also supply the ICE Viper thermal inkjet printer,  fitted to our sleeve and carton feeders for coding flat-from cartons ahead of production.

Hot foil printers

Hot foil is a very low maintenance option if you are looking for a simple date code printer. It can be used for printing or debossing. Our hpdSYSTEM vario date code printer fits into most standard hot foil frames for easy integration into packaging or labelling machinery. It relies on contact with the substrate so will not be suitable for uneven substrates. It also needs factory air to operate.

Thermal Transfer Printers

Thermal transfer is another option for date code printing. With this technology, you can print extremely high quality date codes and bar codes as well as detailed ingredients information. Thermal transfer is typically used on flexible packaging – often mounted within a vertical form fill seal (VFFS) machine.
