Like many products in the food and beverage industries, the trend in candy and confection is towards reclosable bags, containers of bite-sized products, and a desire for innovative flavors and healthier ingredients. As a result, confections and candy are packaged into different types of plastic materials in addition to the paper outer wrapper or box.
Labeling and coding equipment play a vital role in this industry, so it is important that the technologies are reliable, easy to use, and versatile so as to adapt to changing product lines. It is also important that code requirements, such as use by dates, batch codes, or other identifiers are clear and that Labels are accurate and meet required food regulations.
ID Technology has the products to keep your lines moving with solutions that meet coding requirements on a wide range of Packaging and labels that inform attract consumers.

EPI Labeling Systems
Achieve, accurate label placement on any package type even at high speeds. Designed for easy set up, use and low maintenance, this product line is built in the USA at our plant in New Freedom, PA. Their Flex-Pac™ system works with vertical form-fill-seal bagging machines to apply labels to the film before the bag is formed. Flex-Pac™ is perfect for applying Instantly Redeemable Coupons (IRCs) to power your marketing campaigns.
Continuous Ink Jet
Designed and built here in the USA, our Citronix ciSeries CIJ printers are easy-to-use, needs minimal maintenance and produces great print quality. This is a cost effective way to add real-time coding to your products and keep up with high speed production lines.
Add identifying marks such as date and lot codes, barcodes, traceability codes and logos on a range of packaging types. We have a wide range of inks, available in multiple colors and properties to suit your application.
Masca Laser Coders
Macsa lasers perform in high speed environments and produce high-quality, high-contrast lot codes, sell-by dates and variable data directly onto film, foils, paperboard, paper labels or cardboard.
Lasers are used to score, slit and cut the plastic films and foils used in flexible packaging. They enable such packaging to be shaped and formed, and they make it easy for consumers to open it.
No consumables are needed and the lasers require minimal maintenance.
Thermal Transfer Overprinters
Our range of Thermal Transfer Overprinters (TTO) add variable information to flexible packaging – date codes, lot numbers, price, etc.
Each EasyPrint thermal transfer overprinter is capable of both intermittent and continuous printing, allowing for integration into both intermittent and continuous packaging lines. An integrated printhead heater allows for printing at low temperatures.
Thermal transfer overprinting results in a sharp, clear image without compromising production speed.
Secondary packaging keeps the primary packaging safe and helps it retain its original shape during transport to a retail or consumer location. Cardboard boxes, cardboard cartons and plastic crates are common types of secondary packaging.
Out label printer applicators, for labeling cases, cartons, and shipping containers, apply the label to one or mulitple sides of the box or carton. You can print and apply labels in real-time on a wide range of applicator modules with your choice of OEM print engine.
Laser Marking on Cartons
Combining a DataLase solution with our Macsa lasers gives you the option of marking directly onto cartons. The DataLase material is printed directly onto the carton during converting and produces a color change when activated with a low power CO2 laser.
High Resolution Inkjet
Personalize cases with barcodes and text using our high resolution inkjet printers from FoxJet. These printers produce high quality, high resolution text, barcodes and graphic images. Now you can replace preprinted case and cartons with large character printing on demand.Various printhead configurations, provide upto 4” high print at 300 dpi print resolution.
Labeling and Coding Pallets and Boxes
Print and apply multiple labels to pallets or boxes with one of ID Technology’s elegant and cost effective solutions. Apply labels to one, two, or three sides of a box or pallet; a laser type sensor locates the position of the area to be labeled for accurate placement of the label. Our solutions work with irregular pallets and tolerances in material handling. We also offer an optional stainless steel enclosure for washdown environments.
