Technologies for cardboard and paper coding

Do you know coding technologies so well?

Paper and cardboard are commonly used materials for packing products. This kind of packaging is continuing to grow in popularity because of its excellent environmental credentials and ability to emphasize brand values. We mainly see paper as primary packaging. Cardboard is used as both primary and secondary packaging. Although both paper and cardboard have their own particular properties, they also have a lot in common when it comes to applying coding to the material. With the right encoder, printing on paper/cardboard will be extremely cost-effective and qualitative.  It ensures that the packages have the appropriate traceability to comply with legal requirements and provide the consumer with the necessary information about the product. Able to print various types of information, such as barcodes, Datamatrix, validity, logos, date of manufacture, batch and ect., the coders deliver an excellent cost-benefit ratio for your line. Our company offers a wide range of industrial marking solutions for porous and non-porous paper and cardboard substrates. Both when placing the coding directly on the paper/cardboard and when placing a label on it.

Continuous Inkjet coding 

The Linx printers incorporate features that speed up day-to-day operation and maintenance, while ensuring continual performance and minimal downtime. They produce consistently accurate and legible codes, and also offer longer service intervals and low-cost maintenance. Continuous Ink Jet (CIJ) printers can print onto almost any substrate and are available with many different coloured inks. Thankfully, with their picture-based displays and smartphone-inspired screens, Linx coders are so intuitive to use that human mistakes are now far less common.

Laser coding

Lasers area fast and cost-effective way to mark permanent codes onto cardboard, glass, plastics, metal, making them ideal for a wide range of industries, from beverage, pharmaceutical and snack foods, through to industrial metals. With minimum ongoing maintenance and no consumables, it helps to reduce the total cost of ownership. Along with this as the laser does not use consumables, it makes it a more environmentally friendly product marking solution.
