Government regulations requiring manufacturers to place date and lot codes on consumer packaged goods for recall capability have focused much attention on the problem of missed codes. The co. announces that it has enhanced its SmartDate(R) 5 line of thermaltransfer coders with a patented feature designed to eliminate missed codes. The thermal-transfer coders are able to detect slowing and stoppage of film and eliminate codes that are missed or incomplete due to the continuous-motion thermal-transfer printing process if the packaging film stops halfway through the print. The solution is ideal for flexible packaging materials and applications within the snackfood, confectionary, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, baked food and frozen food industries, the co. states. The coders are widely used with vf/f/s machines, hf/f/s machines, flowrappers, label applicators and cartoning machines.
