Printing on net and tag

Domino has coding solutions for tags made of hardened plastic as well as softer, flexible materials

How can Domino's TTO help scale your Food Packaging Operation?

For artisanal-style products packaged in net bags, production codes need to be applied to a tag affixed to the net instead of the bag material itself. Our V-Series range of thermal transfer overprint (TTO) coders can print everything from variable data, barcodes and images at 300dpi quality on flexible packaging films and labels for a wide range of applications.

For artisanal products, it’s the perfect solution for adding source, best-before and traceability data to flow wrap packaging, giving consumers the reassurance that produce and cheese is being grown and produced on the finest farms.

If you're packaging fruits or vegetables in similar packaging, don't worry, we have you covered there as well. 

Are there alternative coding technologies to TTO?

For packaging cheese in artisanal mesh bags, Thermal Transfer is far from your only option. If you're looking for additional coding flexibility, our Ax350i continuous inkjet printer is ideal for adding codes to card, plastic and even metal.

Using food-grade inks to avoid risk of contaminating the exposed product, the code is easy to apply and quick to dry. It's also secure, meaning it won't be smudged when consumers lift the product by the tag. The Ax350i is also IP66-rated, so it's easy to clean along with the rest of the production line. 

In addition to our Ax-Series, our Gx-TIJ could also be considered for food lines that utilize mesh packaging.
