Secondary packaging provides additional key pieces of information, from simple date codes for marking to GS1 compliant barcodes for traceability. Case coding printer solutions are suitable for a wide range of secondary packaging, including boxes, trays, bags and shrink-wrapped material. Printing on cases can be a great low-cost option for manufacturing companies.
Using industrial case coding printers can allow traceability of packaged and shipped cases and provide unique branding and information that is variable printed for different products and SKUs. Case coders are a good option for printing directly on secondary packaging for shipping of manufactured goods.
