Entry-level sleeve and carton coder is launched

The Celtic Bakers, a north London baker of hand-crafted breads, cakes and patisserie, has become one of the first users of Rotech’s new RF-Lite sleeve and carton coder.

The entry-level offline coding system is demonstrating labour and label cost savings as well as improved aesthetics compared with the hand labelling method the bakery had historically used to mark cartons of sourdough crispbreads.

“We were using a hand gun to apply pre-printed labels to the end-flaps of the cartons but this was slow going, and repetitive work for staff,”​ says the company.

Launched at the start of this year with a baseline price tag of £5,000, the machine is pitched as an affordable coding model for artisan operations and other small food companies looking to automate their offline date marking process for the first time.

The coder takes flat cardboard sleeves or cartons from a hopper and then feeds them through a printer so they can be coded. It then stacks them again ready for use. It can handle pack shapes and sizes ranging anywhere from 40x70mm to 300x200mm.
