Continuous Inkjet Printers

Continuous Inkjet Coder Rental

We supply alphaJET continuous inkjet printers which are manufactured in Germany by Koenig & Bauer Coding GmbH.  Their simple menu system and colour touchscreen make them very easy to use. Continuous inkjets offer high-speed, non-contact printing for a whole range of different substrates.

If you are looking for a simple date code printer, the alphaJET mondo prints up to 5 lines in black ink. If you are need additional functionality, including the option for coloured or specialist inks, we would normally recommend the alphaJET into.

Sleeve & Carton Feeder for Date Code Printing on Sleeves, Cartons and Pouches

A sleeve and carton feeder (you can also feed pouches or other flat-form packs) gives you a way to print date codes quickly and accurately away from main production. Some of the biggest food manufacturing companies in the UK, use our carton feeding machines for accurate date-coding on cardboard sleeves for ready meal or other prepared food packs. Equally, carton feeders give you a way to automate date coding if you don’t yet have other automation in place.

Throughput depends on pack size but you can expect to be able to code around 150-200 packs per minute, with reliably accurate print placement.

udaFORMAXX sleeve and carton feeders are designed to accommodate more than one printer, printer and vision system or even a label applicator. Some manufacturers use the standalone machines for printing a date code and applying a label in one pass.
