Investment in container printing
07 April 2017
Goplasticpallets, the independent distributor of returnable plastic transit packaging (RPTP), has invested in a state-of-the-art, thermal transfer machine. The new purchase comes in response to growing customer demand for branded totes and trays - in particular, small quantities of boxes with printed identification markings.
Traditionally, printed containers have only been available in very large quantities and as a result, come with a long lead time. Thanks to the Coditherm H-PAD, Goplasticpallets can now offer customers even more flexibility, printing in batches as small as a few hundred units, within two or three working days.
Based at Goplasticpallets’ main warehouse in Eastbourne, home to the company’s vast stock inventory, operatives can now accurately print logos and identification markings such as part product numbers, barcodes, SKU and QR codes, onsite immediately from order processing.
The Coditherm H-PAD, a pneumatic printing machine, uses high-power, thermal transference to print onto recessed areas of structured plastic containers, including PE (Polyethelene) and PP (Polyproplene) and within very small margins.
