The Kortho M-80 Hotprinter can be built onto intermittent or continuous packaging machines, label dispensers, clip closure machines and many other applications. The M-80 Hotprinter is compact, is of robust construction and comes up to the latest quality standards. The Hotprinter is powered by the Kortho Hotprinter control box.
Standardisation of packaging materials and foil makes for considerable economies in stock management, reversing times and left-over rolls. The direct imprinting of variable data on packaging foil also does away with labels. However, should labels still be required, savings are possible thanks to standardisation of the labels. In such a case the Hot- printer prints the variable elements of the label on a label dispenser.
The Kortho M-80 Hotprinter is extremely suitable for printing variable texts such as date, price, ingredients, type, product name, bar code, logo, recycle logo and EC symbol etc. Korthofah can also supply various accessories that provide flexibility in the way the easily changed text heads are arranged. Many stamp combinations are possible using accessories such as, for instance, characters, text blocks, adjustable date-wheels, numerators and magnesium stamping dies.
Korthofah also has its own design department and engraving shop. Simple stamping dies can be produced according to the customer's wishes and extensive combination printheads can be made according to specification.
The imprint on the packaging is made using Hotfoil. The heated printhead presses the Hotfoil briefly onto the packaging material. The pigment carried by the Hot- print foil is transferred to the packaging where it adheres instantly. Hotfoil is available in a variety of colours and types and can be cut by Korthofah to the required width and length.
