Coding, labelling and serialisation are essential at all levels of tobacco product packaging. This can however prove something of a challenge when working with multiple materials and fast production lines to produce high value packaging of various designs and materials – such as cigar tubes, tins, packs or boxes. Domino can help you to comply with relevant legislation such as the EU TPD & WHO FCTC, protecting the reputation of your product, and combating illicit trade Domino printers have helped many tobacco manufacturers meet these challenges. The highly accurate i-Tech scan head on our D-Series C02 and fibre lasers can produce high-quality, consistent text, graphics and 2D codes such as DotCode or DataMatrix, on a variety of materials.
