Large-Format Coding

Norwood will introduce the NGT Series of large-format, thermal-transfer coding systems, designed to produce the largest print area of any intermittent-motion thermal-transfer coders.
Print Reprint

Systems feature a print engine that turns in the frame, maximizing flexibility and increasing print cycle speeds while reducing the cost of spare parts and consumables. Within the NGT Series, there are 4 intermittent-motion coders and the model NGT 6 CM that operates either intermittent- or continuous-motion with quick conversion. Said to consume less foil and require less thermal printhead travel than traditional thermal-transfer coders, these systems are suitable for foodservice-bagged or -boxed items, blister-packed medical or pharmaceutical products, feed and grain, and more.
