Debossing Coders

Debossing Coders

Debossing is the process of stamping a mark without using ink or printing ribbon, into a receptive substrate material. Debossed marks are permanent and can only be removed by destroying the substrate. As no ink or ribbon is used, debossers are extremely economical to run.

Debossing Units - Discreet Marker Series

Open Date Discreet Markers are debossing machines designed for stamping batch or date codes into a wide variety of materials; these include labels, carton board and some films and use sharp faced (chisel edged) steel or brass type characters. They can be fitted to any reel fed packaging or labelling equipment and most cartoning machines, using either standard or custom designed mounting frames. Discreet Markers provide a simple, in-line, virtually maintenance free coding facility.

Open Date Discreet Markers are available as either cold or hot units. The Cold Debosser will suit most requirements. The Hot Debosser is used where enhanced code definition is required or the substrate material is not particularly receptive. This machine heats the type characters so that when stamped into the substrate, it will temporarily soften and then accurately retain the form of the numbers and letters.
