Puratos, a supplier of dry premixed ingredients to the bakery industry, has selected marking and coding specialist Allen Coding Systems to supply a 53XL80 thermal transfer printer in a bid to improve traceability of its products.
Phill Davenport, Maintenance Manager at Puratos comments: “Increasing customer demand for better traceability and 24-hour production prompted a need to upgrade our old Allen Coding printing system.”
“We’ve always been pleased with the company’s previous coder and overall service so were happy to go with their recommendation of a 53XL80, especially as it was a straight swap for our existing machine ensuring minimum downtime.”
Puratos is using the 53XL80 to print LOT numbers, weight, date packed and best before dates onto plastic sachets at speeds of up to 50 packs a minute.
