Printing on snack bags

A long-time favorite of the snack sector, bags are ideal for individual packs, sharing packs and multipacks

When printing on snack bags, the high-volume, low-margin economics of traditional snack production requires a print solution that is always available and able to accommodate rapid changeover in production runs. Traditionally, old-style hot-stamp printing managed to fulfill the needs of snack food producers all over North America and the rest of the world.

With next-generation automation-capable Thermal Transfer Overprinting technology, snack food production factories will be capable of so much more in terms of date coding, bar coding, QR coding and more.

Before, with old style hot-stamp coding, production changeover could take valuable minutes away from your facility's production. That's time that your company and facility just can't afford with razor-thin profit margin per unit.

Centralize Your Production with Coding Automation

With Domino's V-Series TTO coupled with Coding Automation and Domino Automation, it's a one-click process to change codes with minimal downtime. Plus, any coding mistakes can be quickly found and corrected easily and without the need for major downtime.

For printing on snack bags, TTO is also more efficient, less expensive to operate and less likely to damage fragile packaging material (and foodstuffs), thanks to minimal-contact printing.

Thermal Transfer can print more text to add ingredient lists on generic packs, as well as logos, QR codes, promo codes, production codes and barcodes making it the ideal solution for snack bag coding. Since every design can be set up and stored in a database, there's less risk of error whenever there's a changeover, so the TTO reduces cost and waste at every stage compared to hot-stamp printers.

Our Automation and Integration Services help make the coding process safer and prevent errors from happening.

Domino Automation and Designer, our software tools for centralized label management and automated deployment, are designed to boost your production efficiency: streamline operations and minimize waste.

Using Domino Automation you can create messages centrally and automatically pass them down to all Domino printers on your production.

  • Design and manage labels at a single location: our intuitive label design system enables using a universal interface, keeping training needs at a minimum.
  • Easily manage users and their permissions: security features like Active Directory Integration enable using your existing IT network, and simplify user management.
  • Full audit trail for the management of production changes: version control provides the ability for approval and roll-back procedures.
