Food Marking & Coding

Our marking and coding solutions help meet a number of challenges faced by the food industry. Automated coding methods enable fast, consistent and error free product marking, whilst freeing up your operatives to focus on more valuable tasks.

High quality, legible codes which stay in place throughout the product's lifetime to help meet the required food grade printing and marking standards, and also protect your brand. Large color touch screens with graphical interfaces make code setup and selection quick and error-free, meaning fewer operator errors and product recalls.

Benefit from high speed coding capabilities plus versatile coders with carton coding features for both primary and secondary printing with one printer. While a range of IP ratings for continual, reliable operation in a food coding environment, self-service models requiring no service engineer visits can increase productivity by reducing downtime and maximizing line efficiencies. Intelligent date coding capabilities avoid the need for manual changes to printer settings.

Our wide range of specialist inks for CIJ printers include plastic adherent inks and low odor non MEK inks. Linx Black PE Ink 1130 offers excellent adhesion to polyethylene (PE) and most polypropylene (PP) applications, and is suitable for non-contact food packaging in line with Swiss Ordinance 817.023.021, the European reference for food packaging inks.
