Markem Imaje SmartDate Thermal Transfer Printer
Thermal Transfer Overprinting is a contact coding process which transfers ink from a ribbon to the material, using a thermal printhead. Thermal transfer technology combines a thermal printhead and a polyester ribbon coated with ink on one side. Ink is transferred from a ribbon to the packaging material using a thermal printhead. This is made up of a row of independent tiny heating elements, mounted on a ceramic support. The different heating elements are activated based on the characters to be printed, melting the ink on the ribbon and transferring the selected characters to the packaging film.
Designed with the high-volume industrial user in mind, the new FlexPackPRO XT Series Thermal Transfer Overprinter models provide many outstanding benefits. These include having an extra-large ribbon capacity, rugged stainless-steel controllers, increased print areas, and enhanced color interface.
PouchMark®FLOW 2000 Series Continuous Friction-Feeder Printing System
The FLOW 2000TM prints a 7-inch-tall stack of flat pouches (or cards) at a blazing-fast speed of up to 120 packs per minute. And not just simple text or date codes – 1D, 2D and GS1 barcodes; logos and icons; incremental and database-fed variable codes... all at crisp and clear 300dpi resolution.
PouchMark®FLOW 3000 Series Continuous Pneumatic-Feeder Printing System
The FLOW 3000TM is the perfect solution for printing variable codes directly onto pre-made zippered and gusseted pouches. Print everything from nutrition panels, compliance data, logos, virtually any type of barcode and more, eliminating the need for pre-printed, hand- or machine-applied labels.
Custom-printing directly onto pre-formed bags has never been easier! Just choose a template from the touchscreen controller and press the integrated foot pedal for hands-free, perfect custom printing every time. Logos, ingredients, barcodes, and more can all be built into one template and printed at once.
In addition, VERSA’s modular design allows the user to raise the printer and rubber print pad above the base, in order to open and slide more difficult multi-layered zippered or gusseted bags over the pad for best print quality.
