England-based Ferns Coffee a specialist in blending and roasting coffee invests in the new 53XL80 thermal transfer coder from Allen Coding Systems, a supplier of high performance coding and marking equipment.
Allen Coding’s 53XL offers reduced maintenance and type changes, which results in lower running costs, said the company.
This thermal transfer coder represents an ideal choice for businesses looking to upgrade from hot foil technology, according to Allen Coding.
The company said it created a new frame to allow the coder to fit easily on to the section of the customer’s packaging machine which pre-forms laminated film pillow packs for coffee.
Ferns Coffee managing director Justin Slawson said they opted for the 53XL80 thermal transfer coder for many reasons like a bigger print area than other models, and also because it offered many of the advanced features with alternatives.
"I am very impressed with Allen Coding and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the company and its products to other businesses," Slawson said.
Other benefits of the 53XL range include excellent print quality at 300 dpi, cassette ribbon loading with 600-metre ribbon capacity, print speeds of up to 40 packs per minute and the ability to cope with a potential increase and extra capacity.
