PrintSafe can provide a range of coding solutions that can print directly onto food and food packaging with the quality, consistency and reliability you need.

Key Applications

Food Grade

  • High quality coding directly onto food such as ice cream, cheese and confectionary products using food grade ink
  • Range of ink colors ensures legibility and outstanding contrast
  • Approvals include FDA and EU food-grade applications
  • Odor free inks for printing onto products and permeable packaging such as cigarettes
  • Self-disinfecting inks

Eggs

  • Foodgrade inks that are fast drying and self disinfecting
  • Coding directly onto egg shells
  • Non-contact printing ensures high quality print onto curved surfaces
  • Application integrates seamlessly with all main egg grader machines

PET

  • Tuned lasers enable, high quality permanent laser coding without perforation
  • High speed continuous ink jet printing with fast drying inks ensures code is not smeared or rubbed off
  • Non-contact printers produce high quality code onto uneven and curved surfaces
  • Abrasion-resistant inks that will not rub off
  • Laser codes stay crisp and clear even after wash down

Flexible Packs/Flow Wrap

  • Superior adhesion on plastics, foils and laminate ensures ink remains legible when flexed
  • Non contact continuous and thermal ink jet and laser printing will not damage substrate
  • Tuned lasers enable high quality permanent laser coding without perforation
  • Highly efficient thermal transfer overprinting in high volume manufacturing environments

Glass

  • Superior adhesion on wet glass
  • White inks to print onto darker backgrounds for outstanding contrast
  • Removable inks for returnable bottles
  • Nude inks only visible under UV lights for internal traceability without visually marking finished product
  • Permanent laser coding

Cans

  • Excellent metal adhesion inks
  • Consistently clear coding
  • Thermochromic inks change color when cans have been steam sterilised
  • Code anywhere from cap to bottom of cans

Cartons

  • Excellent adhesion even on heavily laminated cartons
  • Tuned lasers offer letter-quality coding on the range of carton coatings
  • Continuous and thermal ink jet and laser coders keep pace with high speed lines

Corrugated Outer Cases

  • Minimize inventory variants and simplify stock planning using ink jet (high resolution larger character), valve-jet (large character) and print and apply labelers
  • Flexibility for ad-hoc printing runs and personalization of packaging at no extra cost
  • Eliminate the need for pre-printed cases
  • Print variable data, graphics and bar coding including GS1 compliant codes

Shrink Wrapped Trays/Pallets

  • Print and Apply labelers provide high resolution printing of bar codes, text and graphics
  • Ensure supply chain compliance with GS1 compliant codes
  • Accurate information and label placement with no compromise in line speeds
  • Modular systems for seamless integration
