Coding on Shrink Wrap for Logistics


100% traceable codes for tracking products from production to destination, bespoke for coding on shrink film for logistic.


Shrink wrap is used both for individual packaging and to encase entire pallets of goods, but can be challenging to code on shrink filmed pallets because of potentially uneven surfaces. GS1-128 compliant labels can be used to add tracking information to pallets, such as product-specific data, batch codes, and expiration dates.


Using the wrong label application method, the wrong ink or wrong adhesives for compliant product identification can result in errors and costly downtime. We have several solutions for applying product data, from printing directly on outer cases to GS1-label printing or application on pallets.
Our 2200 Series print and apply solution applies compliant, traceable codes at the highest application speeds, meeting supply chain demands, and maximizing production line availability and efficiency. For applying labels to uneven surfaces, we recommend the 2200 Flex SE.
For complex labeling requirements such as part or multisided labeling, we offer the Cimpak, whic h features a multi-axis label application of up to 4 labels on 3 sides of a single pallet. With 100% readable barcodes printed at speeds of 120 pallets per hour, it brings ultimate traceability to warehousing and inventory control.



Evonik | Partners in reliability
To reduce marking issues arising from human error, Evonik chose a Markem-Imaje solution that is networked with the in-house system and automatically transfers printing data to line coders.

Bioplants Hot Melt Coding Cardboard Markem-Imaje
Xavier Bossard – Operations, Digital and Logistics Project Manager at Bioplants @ Bioplants

“The Markem-Imaje solution proposed to Bioplants was interesting because we could choose the criteria we needed: Before that, we were using a labeler, so one consumable item was created every time we labeled a package. Today we use hot melt ink directly projected on the cardboard allows us to add traceability to the packages, which we did not have before.”
