Food

Our coding and marking solutions help meet a number of challenges faced by the food industry.

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

Our wide range of specialist inks for CIJ printers include plastic adherent inks and low odour 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.

Our products are suitable for coding on a full range of packaging materials used by food manufacturers, including paper labels, cardboard and plastic packaging, bottles, and even directly onto food products themselves – such as eggs or cheese.

  • Continuous Ink Jet (CIJ) - non-contact, high speed coding with clean, reliable operation in challenging environments
  • Thermal Ink Jet (TIJ) - coding for product identification onto porous substrates such as shelf-ready packaging
  • Laser Coders – fast, non-contact solution for permanent food packaging applications
  • Large Character printers – for high resolution, large character coding onto secondary packaging.
