Across the globe, governments are increasingly implementing food regulations and coding requirements to ensure complete traceability throughout the food supply chain, which can be particularly useful in the event of contaminated batches. Consumers also want to know where their food came from, who is providing it and when it was produced.
Printing & marking legible and accurate information on products is an important requirement for any food manufacturer, as traceability becomes more common (and more often required) in the industry. When it comes to food safety, especially with eggs, clear codes for traceability and easy to read use-by date markings are critically important. When coding on eggs, this task is particularly difficult due to the delicate, uneven nature of the shells. Inkjet printers are ideal for this requirement, as they spray food-safe ink from a small distance, without even touching the surface of the egg. This prevents some damage from unevenly sized or oriented eggs, but with rigid print heads, there still comes a loss of product due to shell breakage.
RNJet’s EP-6H+ Egg Printer solves this problem with its specially designed compensators on each print head which gently glide over unevenly sized or oriented eggshells, reducing loss of product to 0. With our USDA approved, food-grade ink, both customer and producer can rest easy knowing their product is fresh, local and safe.
Print and apply labelers mark and apply labels, containing text, barcodes, variable/dynamic data, and graphics onto products or packaging. Thermal Inkjet (TIJ) printers offer the same capabilities but at a fraction of the cost and with much less hassle. The choice of selecting a thermal inkjet printing over a labeling solution eliminates the need for… Continue reading Thermal Inkjet Printers vs. Print and Apply Label Machines
