When supplier of dry premixed ingredients to the bakery industry, Puratos, needed to further improve traceability of its products, it turned to marking and coding specialist, Allen Coding Systems for advice and the subsequent supply of a 53XL80 thermal transfer printer for the job.

Phill Davenport, Maintenance Manager at Puratos commented: “Increasing customer demand for better traceability and 24-hour production prompted a need to upgrade our old Allen Coding printing system. We’ve always been pleased with the company’s previous coder and overall service so were happy to go with their recommendation of a 53XL80, especially as it was a straight swap for our existing machine ensuring minimum downtime.”

Compact, simple, reliable and very easy to install and use, the 53XL80 requires minimal maintenance. It is being used by Puratos to print LOT numbers, weight, date-packed and best-before date on to plastic sachets at speeds up to 50 packs per minute.

“So far, the coder has proved reliable with little maintenance. We would not hesitate in recommending Allen Coding and its equipment,” Phill concludes.

The 53XL80 thermal transfer printer offers many advanced features usually found on more expensive alternatives, such as state-of-the-art, high resolution printhead technology, the flexibility to print fixed and variable text, data and graphics, plus 600-metre ribbon capacity.
