The Snack and Confectionery industry is characterised by high throughout and production volumes with production downtime causing significant and costly problems. High-speed VFFS machines place great demands on the printing facility which EASYPRINT can withstand. EASYPRINT thermal transfer printers provide clear and distinct coding with good visibility of the sell-by date.
Solutions by industry
The Snack and Confectionery industry is characterised by an extremely high production output and downtime a very critical factor. The machines are typically high-speed VFFS machines, which place great demands on the printing facility. It is important that the quality of the printing is optimal as there must be a high degree of traceability and of course, the visibility of the sell-by-date to the end user.
Typically, Bakery manufacturers pack products with both VFFS and HFFS machines. Printing occurs in a challenging environment where flour and ingredients may be airborne but where uptime and printing quality are critical.
Fresh food processing environments require regular wash down and EASYPRINT printers are ideal for such environments with features such as automatic printhead alignment and quick release brackets making the process simple and quick. EASYPRINT printers can be connected together which means multilane applications can be satisfied easily.
Due to limited lifespan and the need for freshness, dairies must have precisely planned production schedules. EASYPRINT thermal transfer printers are highly reliable and their ability to print Real Time Data has resulted in installations at large Dairy production facilities globally.
Cold conditions in frozen food packaging means that it is essential that printhead temperature remains constant. All EASYPRINT printers have a printhead heater as standard so maximising the quality of print in this challenging environment
The inherent flexibility of EASYPRINT printers allow contract packers to deliver the coding their customers demand at production speeds. Whether text, graphics or barcodes EASYPRINT maximises profit for the contract packer.
The Pharmaceutical industry is characterised by capital intensive production lines with any corresponding downtime creating a significant financial burden for production. EASYPRINT keeps downtime to a minimum and provides the ability to track and trace through the full production cycle.
