Bottle Coders


Bottle coders provide a simple, cost effective way to identify individual bottles as part of a single production batch.

Bottles are a huge part of the packaging industry in America. Virtually every bottle in a supermarket or pharmacy requires an identifying batch number and an expiration date for customer safety and product control. What makes bottle coding different from other types of coding is that bottles are made of glass or some type of plastic both of which do not absorb ink in order to dry the print. As a result bottle coding is specifically dependent upon the inks available to work in any specific coder. Griffin-Rutgers offers compact, simple thermal ink jet coding systems that have quick drying, rub resistant inks available, in the color selection needed to print on clear and colored bottles. At Griffin-Rutgers we specialize in helping customers find the optimum type of bottle coder they need to do the job required by industry regulations, at an affordable cost point, and at a level of automation that fits their production situation and line speed.
