Printing of “best by” dates and lot numbers has increased as food safety becomes a growing concern among consumers. Expiration dates and lot number tracking is critically important in the event of a product recall. Images must remain legible for tracking information. In addition, other applications such as barcodes, part numbers and item numbers require durability.
Printing barcodes on flexible package is normally an integrated part of the assembly line process. The inline printer prints directly onto the substrate, typically a bag or some other type of container and Hot Stamp Ribbons are commonly used for this application.
In the case of food packaging using inline direct packaging printing on polypropylene or other food and beverage bags, Hot Stamp Ribbons are formulated for compatibility with the substrate, as well as printing at low temperatures and high speeds.
