UV Laser Coders are designed as a direct replacement for thermal transfer overprinters (TTO). This eliminates the need for ink ribbons required to transfer ink to the surface of the film with conventional thermal printers. The result is highly visible, damage-free marking without the need for special films.
Light-based marking with a UV laser coder eliminates the downtime required to replace ink ribbons and clean heads with conventional thermal printers. With no downtime, production can also be increased, helping improve production line operating rates.
Because marking with a UV laser coder is based on light, regular replacement of parts is not necessary and consumable costs can be eliminated.
