What is a “Case Coder” and is it what you need?

A case coder is a printing device that adds product identification or other late stages variable information to the outside of a case of any type. Variable information printing can be of many different varieties ranging from a simple production date, batch number and expiration date, to a complex 2 dimensional high density code or other type of bar code. Variable information can be required on almost any product, in some form, ranging from cases of food products, to pharmaceutical goods, to a cases of pasta, to a case of cans of various types of drinks. The secret to successful case coding is that many applications require differing print technologies to meet the need to print on different materials and/or shapes. Our case coding products encompass different coding technologies that can address a wide range of applications.
