One of today's most common techniques is shrink wrapping, which perfectly contours the product, forming a pack with the same shape as its contents. This technique allows for higher production rates and faster shipping speeds.
With APL 3500 Series Print & Apply technology, these packs can be identified and coded in accordance with GTIN standards at rates of up to 180 packs/min.
If the packs include a bottom corrugated cardboard tray, the tray can be coded during the forming process prior to being shrink-wrapped using UBS APLINK Series High-Resolution Inkjet Printers. If you wish to print after the pack is assembled and shrink-wrapped instead, the High-Resolution Inkjet with UV LED is the perfect solution to print directly on plastic film.
