What is a Hot Foil Coder?

A Hot Foil Coder is a device for coding, marking and overprinting date codes, batch codes, graphics and so on, onto a wide range of materials.

How Does Hot Foil Work?

Hot foil coding is a contact printing process using machine engraved or cast type characters, dies or rotary flickwheel numbering units, which are heated and then stamped through a coloured ribbon (known as foil) onto the substrate to produce crisp, clean, dry and non-toxic prints.

Typical Hot Foil Applications

The Hot Foil Coder can be easily installed on to any reel fed labelling or packaging machine and is ideal for printing a variety of batch / date codes and so on, for a wide range of applications including Food and Pharmaceutical Industries.
