53XLThermal Transfer Coder, Diagraph* TJ Thermal Inkjets and Platinum E Series All Electric Labelling System on show for first time

Allen Coding Systems is showing a wide range of high performance laser, thermal transfer, hot foil and inkjet carton coding and marking equipment.  The company is launching its cost effective 53XL thermal transfer coder at the show. This latest addition to the popular, affordable 53 series features a larger print area up to 53mm x 80mm. Also on display for the first time are the recently launched Diagraph* TJ1000 and TJ500 series of thermal inkjet printers and Platinum E Series all electric labelling system, which uses 50% less energy than other pneumatic models.

Allen Coding Systems’ Diagraph’s Platinum E Series All Electric Labelling System uses 50% less energy than other pneumatic models.

The exhibit also features a low cost ICON laser coder, popular entry-level 53LTi (intermittent) and 53LTc (continuous) thermal transfer printers, TP4100 multilane printer, and a Super Compact hot foil coder. In addition, a BDS off line carton coder will be featured.

As well as using less power than a hair dryer, Allen Coding’s Platinum E-Series all electric labelling system does not use compressed air and is easy to move from one production line to another without the problem of air hoses getting in the way. Other benefits of the Platinum E-Series include its reliability.  With a typical MTBF (mean time between failures) of 25 million cycles, there is significantly less maintenance and downtime than with alternative label applicator systems of a similar design.

With fewer controls than comparable pneumatic equipment, the Platinum E-Series is also very easy to use, plus it is extremely flexible and is capable of various orientations to accommodate label application to the side, top, bottom or corner-wrap of substrate panels.

Allen Coding’s TJ1000 and TJ500 systems are reliable, low-cost, thermal inkjet printheads capable of printing up to 10 and five lines of data respectively.  This includes printing alphanumerics, logos and bar codes on to porous and non-porous surfaces.  The new machines offer highly reliable thermal inkjet technology, high-resolution printing, easy-to-change ink cartridges, and a wealth of industrial-grade performance features, resulting in the best value for many marking and coding applications.

Developed as an ideal first introduction to laser technology, the ICON laser system is easy to use, fast and priced competitively with ink jet printers. Specially designed for small character coding, ICON features an integrated colour touch screen and intuitive interface with context sensitive menus for ease of navigation. ICON uses high performance optics, powerful hardware and advanced, low overhead software to enable its core laser to meet the high speeds of most production lines. Meanwhile, its compact design means it can be installed in locations where space is limited.

Allen Coding’s entry-level 53LTi (intermittent) and 53LTc (continuous) thermal transfer coders are priced competitively with most hot foil systems and offer increased flexibility with reduced maintenance. This allows customers to affordably upgrade to the more versatile thermal transfer unit for the efficient and accurate printing of vital fixed and variable text and graphics.

The 53LT range provides many of the advanced features of more expensive thermal transfer units, but at a fraction of the cost. These include 300 dpi print resolution; cassette ribbon loading; 600-metre ribbon capacity; 53mm (width) x 50mm (length) print area with print speeds up to 400mm per second; and a best of breed thermal print head. In addition, the ability to print two-dimensional data matrix codes makes the 53LT models ideal for pharmaceutical applications.

The TP4100 multilane thermal transfer printer has been specially designed for snack food and pharmaceutical packaging applications where multiple lanes of identical code and print might be required.  Capable of operating at speeds up to 600 units per minute, the single modular unit can feature up to 14 printheads, and be integrated on to all types of intermittent-motion packaging equipment, including horizontal form-fill-seal, over-wrapping, bagging, thermoforming and blister pack lines, and boasts quick message changes, easy set-up and minimal maintenance.

Allen Coding’s BDS offline carton coder is capable of handling cartons, sleeves, blister cards, leaflets and cut labels. Suitable for use with both thermal transfer and hot foil technology, the versatile BDS can also utilise multiple print heads. Substrate is transported from the hopper to the print head by a belt drive or vacuum drive ensuring excellent print registration. Rapid product changes can be accomplished quickly and easily using adjustable feeder and position indicators.

Allen Coding Systems’ low cost Diagraph TJ1000 and TJ500 Thermal Inkjet Systems are aimed at multilane packaging applications

The Super Compact hot foil coder features digital technology and offers unrivalled accuracy for a consistently high print quality.  Capable of speeds up to 800 prints per minute, this reliable system offers unrivalled hot foil

coding performance and is available with many advanced features as standard including foil run out warning for reduced downtime, variable temperature control and self check diagnostic software.

The company supplies machine spares and a wide range of high quality consumable products such as printheads, thermal inkjet print cartridges for porous and non porous substrates, hot foil tape and type, thermal foil, and type holders.
