Flexible packaging is most preferred by business houses around the world for a variety of reasons. 

To begin with, they are cost-effective and offer great durability and product protection. It is also an essential requirement in the supply chain of many industries including fast selling consumer and sporting goods to electronic, medical and cosmetic supplies. 

Flexible packaging combines the best qualities of plastics and films while needing minimal material, production and cost. Flexible packaging is preferred for its versatile and functional solution. As easy it is to incorporate flexible packaging in the production line, the difficulty is often faced in finding marking and coding solutions for it. 

Control Print offers a wide range of coding and marking solutions to suit the manufacturer’s requirements. The Thermal Transfer Overprint is a recommended printing option for high-quality codes specifically for flexible packaging and labels. The Thermal Inkjet Coder can be easily integrated across a wide spectrum of vertical and horizontal form fill seal packaging and labelling lines. 

Thermal Transfer Overprinter utilizes a thermal printhead consisting of many individual ceramic resistors that are heated to transfer the desired image from the ribbon directly to the substrate. This coding technology utilizes a food-safe, the non-hazardous ribbon that contains no liquid, therefore, minimizes the mess. The technology also offers low maintenance solutions for intermittent as well as continuous application.
