smartdate coderWhen looking for a digital, variable data coding system to invest in and depend on, it’s important to first get to know the various system manufacturers and learn how their product offerings can help you achieve your business objectives. One of the more popular coding brands today is the SmartDate family of coders. Here are five things you should know about this particular system.

  1. How SmartDate Coders Work: These are in-line thermal transfer coders that use thermal transfer technology to print barcodes, times, codes, dates and images onto webs, packaging materials, and labels. The technology also allows for low environmental impact or waste. From the well-known coding manufacturer, Markem-Imaje, these printers have a reputation for reliability, high-resolution images, and superior technology over other thermal transfer coders.
  2. How the Printers Increase Productivity: These printers have automatic real time date coding ability that can be change automatically. Not having to rely on manual set-up means more uptime and greater productivity. Its operation is simple and does not require that operators know how to set up characters or change alignment. It is push and go print. The simplicity of the machine – from installation to operation to maintenance – means that more time is spent printing, allowing you to scale up quickly and realize new levels of productivity.

  4. How These Machines Offer High-Quality Printing: The advanced technology delivers high-resolution print of 300dpi as well as featuring a significant variety of fonts, typefaces, and sizes that can be produced to customize to your exacting coding specifications.
  5. How the Printers Ensure Security of Printed Codes: The machine’s feature includes automatic time and date coding, which ensure accuracy of printed codes as well as offers product traceability. Thanks to the highly secure pre-programmed layout options, information cannot be modified by the operator. For greater security, this machine also offers features like password, keyswitch, and configurable access mechanisms.

In Summary
Here are the main points from this blog post:
