Label Coding

Label Coding Is A Complete Solution for Imprinting Variable Information On A Wide Variety Of Label Materials.

Griffin Rutgers can help you select the right label coding solution for your application for marking lot numbers, expiration dates, lineal or 2D barcodes onto labels.  We offer a range of different label coding solutions that are suitable for printing industry required variable information on labels no matter what the label material or line speed. We specialize in helping customers find the type of label coding solution needed to do the job at a print speed that keeps the production line running at 100%.  Look at our affordable Label Coding products below:

  • Thermal transfer coders for coding on labels or flexible films. Some models of these coders are able to print areas large enough to add ingredients tables to generic labels.
  • Small size thermal inkjet coders that can print high resolution text, bar codes and images at high speeds across varying label materials.
  • A laser coder that can create a permanently etched mark that absolutely cannot be removed.
  • All of these technologies can be configured for off-line use as standalone systems not integrated to the packaging line. A representative sample of such off-line systems is shown below.

What is “Label Coding” and is it what you need?

Label Coding devices add variable information onto a label usually just before it is applied to the product. As a result, Label Coding is most commonly integrated with an automated label application system of some sort. This variable information printing can be required in many different formats ranging from a simple Batch Number and Expiration Date to a complex 2 dimensional high density code or other type of bar code employed in automated product tracking. Variable information can be required on almost any product but is virtually universal on food and pharmaceutical products that require “Best If Used By….” advice. The secret to high or low speed label coding is that the print technology and its capabilities must match the label material optimally in order to achieve the most consistent result without slowing production.

Our Label Coding products encompass three different coding technologies (thermal inkjet, thermal transfer and laser) that can address virtually all label coding needs and production line speeds. But not all label coding efforts take place as part of a fully automated packaging line. Some such coding is accomplished “off-line” prior to packaging. Griffin-Rutgers offers both in-line and off-line systems.
