POP500 and POP1000

POP500 and POP1000 Coding Machine

These coding machines can stamp date codes, price marking and are ideal for printing other variable information such as weight, grade, type, quantity, ingredients and barcodes in line with the packaging process. Designed for easy installation on to most types of intermittent motion packaging machines. Autoprint coders can also be mounted on to continuous motion machines with the aid of a web arrester.

The arrester is easily synchronised to cycle with the coder and contains a simple registration device for placing the print in the required position. This is a dry, clean and smudge free printing process, does not use inks. A clear and durable imprint giving information is instantly applied from an accurately indexed stamping foil which is available in a variety of colours.

Practically all flexible materials including plain and coated papers, polythene, polypropylene laminates and coated aluminium can be printed with this method.

The Autoprint POP500 and POP1000 are designed for ease of loading a new roll of foil.
Roll changes may be minimised by loading rolls of 500m (1600ft) capacity. 

The units can be mounted in any orientation and their versatility enables them to be located in the most awkward positions.
The unit operates at speeds up to 150 prints per minute.
Sensing devices signalling the need to reload the foil and or stop the parent machine can be fitted.

The electronics and motor are rated for long term reliable operation with the stop/start action of the foil drive motor. Temperature control and dwell are electronically controlled. In the event of controller or motor failure the equipment is designed for rapid change of parts.

Autoprint coders are built for quality marking under the most arduous conditions.

Their action is smooth, efficient pneumatic buffers are built to eliminate impact action thus prolonging the span of all moving parts.
