Thermal transfer coder for French customer.


Allen Coding Systems is continuing to experience high demand for its 53LTi thermal transfer coder, announcing French cheese manufacturer, Capribeur, as its latest overseas customer for the popular entry-level machine.

Five of the cost-effective thermal transfer coding machines were sold to Capribeur via OEM, Alpma, with whom Allen Coding has worked for around 17 years.

Technical Manager at Allen France, Daniel Gonon, explained: "Capribeur has been using our traditional hot foil coders since 1995 and has been very happy with them. When the time came to look at upgrading their coders, it was a natural choice to consider Allen's thermal range."

The advantage of the 53LTi, which was originally developed with the food industry and users of hot foil coders in mind, is that it provides many of the advanced features of more expensive thermal transfer units. These include 300 dpi print resolution; cassette ribbon loading; 600m ribbon capacity; 53mm x 30mm print area with print speeds up to 250mm per second; and a best of breed thermal print head.

The cost-effectiveness of the Allen coder was another benefit for Capribeur, who needed the machines to print the date, day of the month, a letter indicating the shift, plus the time, onto cheese packaging.

The five machines have been integrated on to a packaging line incorporating a SAN 80 CIP cheese packaging machine, which operates at up to 60 packs per minute.

Robustly engineered, able to print vital fixed and variable text and graphics easily, as well as being reliable--a trademark of the manufacturer's industry leading products--it also provides the French company with the peace of mind of being backed by Allen Coding System's round-the-clock customer service and support scheme.

Other features of the innovative, space-saving coder is its suitability for marking labels and other packaging substrate with RSS barcodes; data matrix codes; linear and composite barcodes; real time; sell-by dates; batch numbers; company logos; prices and source codes.

The 53LTi is supplied as standard with an operator keypad and Windows-based full-featured label design software.
