Printing on Tobacco Pouches

Domino offers cost-effective coding and serialization solutions that are as flexible for flexible tobacco packaging

One of the most heavily regulated industries in the United States and Canada is the Tobacco industry. As a result, all tobacco packaging, including flexible pouches must be marked with accurate and durable codes.

These codes not only enable you to comply with legislation from the EU TPD WHO FCTC, and the FDA regulations. In addition, if there are any issues with a lot of your tobacco pouches, you will be able to isolate to specific runs thanks to traceability codes. Domino printers can help you to achieve this high-quality coding on flexible packaging materials – without increasing production time or cost.

How are our industrial printers able to code on tobacco pouches and control costs? Through our unrivaled mix of printer technology

What industrial printers are used for coding Tobacco Pouches?

The compact footprint of our lasers printers, coupled with their adjustable i-Tech scan head, allows for integration into a range of production environments. Domino can offer both CO2 and fiber lasers, maximizing the flexibility in pouch materials. Both laser options are proven and installed on multiple tobacco production lines globally.

Our range of thermal transfer and inkjet printers are equally adaptable – their scalable, modular design allowing them to grow with your production line. The V-Series range of thermal transfer overprinters (TTO) can print variable data, barcodes and images at 300dpi quality onto flexible packaging films. It’s the perfect solution for adding traceability data to packaging, giving consumers reassurance that the product is authentic.

These benefits, combined with versatility and simple installation, ensure our V-Series is a perfect choice whether you are a manufacturer or packaging machinery OEM.

Outstanding Coding - From Product to Pallet

We believe that achieving this level of flexibility shouldn’t come at the expense of performance. All of our printers are capable of producing consistent, accurate text, graphics and 2D codes such as DotCode or Data Matrix on flexible packaging materials. Our cost-effective laser printers minimize planned maintenance and consumables use – while still providing high-quality coding at fast production speeds. Our inkjet printers combine high-performance print heads with a range of fast-drying inks – each specially designed to match a variety of flexible packaging materials.

By integrating Domino technology throughout your production line, you can also ensure the same high-quality performance when printing and applying labels. Our Mx-Series printers feature a highly flexible applicator for outstanding coding at the end of the line. By combining our printing and labelling solutions, Domino can offer complete coding that covers you from product to pallet.
