Printing on trays

The rise of convenience foods and on-the-go eating creates new formats and challenges

There's a meal in a tray for every meal of the day, and food processors are becoming more adept at delivering new recipes and ingredients in a ready-to-eat format. With the challenges of fresh ingredients and short shelf-lives, production schedules are demanding and every part of the process needs to run smoothly. With the new Ax-Series continuous inkjet printers, producers can be confident that their coding operation will keep pace with production.

Virtually maintenance-free, easy to set up and control, they're light enough to be carried by one operator if relocation is needed. Fast drying inks allow trays to be coded and packed without any delays, and meals can be processed and shipped in double-quick time. 

Our easy to use, flexible and scalable software and service products are easy to integrate with all coding and labelling technologies. From a fully featured, free of change Label Editor to a range of powerful automation modules.  


Stay fully compliant and in complete control of your package messaging, from product to pallet, right from the factory floor. Fully scalable to suit your production line, you can manage data simply with a touch screen PC interface and create accurate labels from our built-in product table.
