Variable data must be overprinted on the moving film on non-stop continuous packing machines.
Since the movement speed of the film is not constant an encoder device must be fitted on the printing roller to allow synchronism between the printing speed and the film speed. The SWING with a fixed printing head is used for this application. Recommended the model for this use is the Swing Series C.
On intermittent packaging machines, the film advances in steps and overprinting with Eidos technology is performed during the stopping times of the film.
The SWING with a mobile printing head is used for this application. Recommended the models for this use is the Swing Series .ie and the Swing Series X.
For multi-track packaging machines, Eidos has created a series of specific printers characterised by variable width for thermoforming and heat-sealing machines and designed to replace mechanical date stampers on multi-track applications.
Recommended the models for this use is the Swing Series .X and the Swing Series XL.
