Fertilizer and mineral bagging producers have found significant cost savings by including the ITW Norwood NGT 8E large format in-line thermal transfer printer in their bagging operations. Why? The savings comes not having to print SKU specific packaging/film, as well as the elimination of custom printed labels or slip sheets that later have to be hand applied to the bags. Hamer has integrated the NGT 8E into its Model 2090 Form, Fill and Seal machine to allow for in-line customized thermal printing abilities.
The NGT 8E handles variable information from 2” to 8” in width, or up to an 8” x 6” area, onto product packaging. Its many programmable options include: bar codes, text, graphics, different fonts, real-time, date coding and serialization – all at a high resolution print quality of 300 dpi. An optional control unit display is also available.
So if you are looking for way to streamline your packaging operations, consider incorporating an in-line thermal printer on your Form, Fill and Seal machine. This combination of automated bagging and high speed, high quality thermal printing allows producers to reduce bag cost, bagging labor and line changeover time; thus improving production quality and increasing productivity.
