Barcode and Variable Data 

 

     Overview / Features       
  • Multiple barcode types

  • Sequential numbering
  • RFID encoding
  • Low - Medium quantities
  • Print onto various substrates
  • Rolls or sheets
  • No printing plate required


We have a dedicated bureau department for producing labels with barcodes and variable information and also encoding RFID inlays. We host a range of industrial thermal transfer printers including:
 
x 2 TSC UT-6300 - 300 d.p.i
x 1 Zebra Z6M Plus - 200 d.p.i
x 1 CAB a4+ - 300 d.p.i with sheeting unit
x 1 SATO CL4NX 300 d.p.i + RFID encoding 
x 1 TSC TX600 - 600 d.p.i 

Software
All of our printers run BarTender software allowing for accurate and flexible design.  We can produce a wide variety of barcode types including code 39, code 128, QR codes, data matrix and many more.  Our team have extensive experience in producing barcode labels including the most complex designs requiring check digits, randomized numbering and links to Microsoft Excel Databases.  Our print quality ranges from 200 - 600 d.p.i to ensure we can print the highest quality for the required design.  As well as printing we can also encode RFID inlays.

Materials/Ribbons
We have the option to print via thermal transfer or onto direct thermal materials.
We stock a range of thermal transfer ribbons including standard wax, wax/resin, full resin and specialist chemical resistant ribbon.  This allows us to print on a wide variety of substrates including paper, polyester, vinyl, polypropylene, polyimide and many more. Again, our team have the extensive experience in selecting the correct combination of ribbon and substrate to ensure the durability and quality of the finished label are suitable for the required application.

RFID
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is the wireless non-contact use of radio frequency waves to transfer data. Tagging items with RFID tags allows users to automatically and uniquely identify and track inventory and assets.
Our printer simultaneously prints and encodes information on RFID inlays or labels. This is the only way to print onto labels. They also save time by automating the manual process of encoding each tag.
