Non-porous corrugated cardboard box
Traditionally, non-porous cardboard boxes have been coded using self-adhesive labels and Print&Apply label printing and application equipment, since this is the most extensively used technology for lithographed and coated surfaces.
At UBS, however, we are able to print directly on non-porous cardboard boxes with UVX High-Resolution Inkjet printers using UV LED curing technology. This technology offers greater flexibility for changing line formats, helps to simplify labeling operations, and reduces costs.
Using 4th generation piezoelectric printhead technology, UBS APLINK Series high-resolution printers can print scannable barcodes, images, texts, and variable content with high contrast directly on any porous or non-porous substrate.
APLINK Series combines mineral-free oil-based ink technology and LED-cured UV ink technology to print on the various surfaces used for secondary and other types of packaging.
Equipped with an 10.1" touchscreen controller (APLINK LCX Series, 5.7" touchscreen) and software with an operator-friendly graphic interface, APLINK Series printers can be connected to the computer network via Ethernet connection using the TCP/IP protocol, or they can be used as stand-alone systems with the messages recorded in their 4GB of memory, providing capacity for up to 10,000 messages.
Print & Apply
Real-time automatic printing and application of labels eliminates the errors caused by manual labeling and provides greater speed and accuracy, reducing operating costs in the production chain.
Thanks to their multiple application options, UBS APL Series Print & Apply systems allow for on-the-fly, high-cadence labeling of all types of secondary packaging (front, rear, side, top, corner, and adjacent-side labeling).For end-of-line labeling of pallets, we also offer the option to label pallets and half-pallets on 1, 2, or 3 sides, including stacked and/or variable height pallets.
