Videojet 6210 TTO at Continuous Horizontal Form-Fill-Seal Application

Background

The candy manufacturer uses horizontal form-fill-seal (FFS) to pack the chocolate candy. The CIJ Imaje S4 which attached to the packaging machine has broken down, and to repair the internal pump, it costs approximately USD 1450. Due to the high maintenance cost of the aged Imaje S4, the customer has decided to consider a new industrial printer.

Application
The printing requirement is to code the manufacturing date and expiry date on the PE packaging film. This is a continuous form fill seal machine at the speed of 15 to18 meter per minute.

Solution
The customer has chosen thermal transfer technology which is best suite the form fill seal packaging application instead of the CIJ technology due to the cost of a basic TTO printer is very competitive now since the launch of Videojet 6210 and Markem S18.

Videojet 6210 has won the deal over Markem S18 simply because the user friendly touch screen as well as the customer satisfied with the existing Videojet Excel 170i which is installed at the labeling line.

To make the installation a successful one, a customized bracket with stainless steel rollers and food grade PU roller was designed in accordance to the horizontal form fill seal machine space as well as the application requirement. A rotary encoder with wheel and bracket is required to syncronized the movement speed of the packaging film to the control unit of VJ6210.

The touch screen panel is installed with consideration of operator eye level to ensure ergonomic of the operation process.

In short, the process has become cleaner, easier and the 300 dpi print quality has also added value to the overall candy packaging quality.
