Tracking your inventory improves your productivity and ensures you stay on top of your business. Case coding is the practice of labeling a box with relevant information about the product. Case coding can be either a label, a printed stamp or a combination of the two.
Neway Packaging carries a range of printers to help you label your inventory with ease. We have automatic and handheld case coding equipment to suit every unique operation. Learn more about how case coding can enhance your business and which printer from Neway Packaging is right for you.
How Are Printers Used in Packaging
Case coding is necessary for various reasons. First, it gives the consumer information about their product, such as the expiration date, QR codes and brand labels. Coding provides the supplier with production details, such as where the product was made, when it was made, how many items were in the batch and more.
The primary function of a printer or coding machine is to organize individual products in mass production. Printers and case coders are one of the last production steps. Printers make high-quality, durable labels that stick to the packaging during shipping. Coding equipment prints the ink directly onto the cardboard or other materials.
Types of Printers
Many types of printers on the market work with countless unique manufacturing operations. Consider a few main differences when selecting a printer for your business, including:
- Ink: There are several different ink types, colors and opacities.
- Size: You might need a smaller printing option, depending on your products' size.
- Automation: If you have a conveyor system, an attachable printer would automatically label and sort your products without operator assistance.
