Candy and Coding

We understand the unique challenges candy and confectionery manufacturers face on their production lines. From managing many different package types, to coding on small moving targets in an environment with airborne sugar particles – product integrity, quality and speed are paramount. To help meet these needs, we have developed coding solutions to get the right code, on the right product, time after time.

Applications

Overview

Fluid based, non-contact printing of up to five lines of text, linear and 2D bar codes, or graphics, printed on a variety of packaging types including stationary packaging via traversing systems.

Prints and places labels of various sizes on multiple package types. 

Fluid based, non-contact printing of up to five lines of text, linear and 2D bar codes, or graphics, printed on a variety of packaging types including stationary packaging via traversing systems.

Ink-based, non-contact printing using heat and surface tension to move ink onto a package surface. Generally used to print 2D DataMatrix and other bar codes.

A beam of infrared light focused and steered with a series of carefully controlled small mirrors to create marks where the heat of the beam interacts with the packaging surface.

Ink-based, non-contact printing of multiple data types (alphanumeric, logos and bar codes) in large sizes primarily used for secondary packaging such as cases.

Line Integrations

Vertical form fill seal (VFFS)

Vertical form fill seal (VFFS)

Whether intermittent or continuous motion, Videojet has a range of printers to address the growing complexity of VFFS bags and pouches. Packaging features, like zippers and gussets, and the type of VFFS line require a thoughtful selection of the right coding technology.

Laser Marking Systems

Beam of infrared light that creates marks where the heat of the beam contacts with the package surface

Continuous inkjet (CIJ)

Ink-based printing of up to five lines of text and 2D bar codes on a variety of packaging types, including stationary packaging via traversing systems

Thermal inkjet (TIJ)

Ink-based non-contact printing that is generally used to print 2D DataMatrix and other bar codes

Continuous inkjet (CIJ)

Ink-based printing of up to five lines of text and 2D bar codes on a variety of packaging types, including stationary packaging via traversing systems

Large Character Marking (LCM)

Ink-based, non-contact printing of tall codes, including alphanumeric logos, and bar codes in large sizes primarily for cases

Continuous inkjet (CIJ)

Ink-based printing of up to five lines of text and 2D bar codes on a variety of packaging types, including stationary packaging via traversing systems
