Hot foil coder Allen S-Compact

Reliable and robust

Since the introduction of labeling requirements for packaging, hot foil coding systems offer a reliable solution. The S-Compact systems are technically mature, reliable and robust, which they prove on a daily basis even at the highest cycling rates.
They are particularly suitable for labeling applications where the print is rarely switched. To this day, hot foil coders are the ideal solution for applying a date or graphic. The result is printed images of the highest quality at low cost.

Frequently asked questions regarding the Allen S-Compact

Do you have further questions? Find more information here.

Is the Allen S-Compact the right printing system for my application?

You require a system to label your products where the print is changed only rarely, e.g. once a day. This system should be easy to operate, reliable, and affordable.

If intermittent printing is to be applied on foil, product labels or other smooth surfaces, then the hot foil coding technology is right for you.

How is the print image created with a hot foil coder?

Our hot foil coding systems use type holders on which the texts or graphics to be printed are applied using types or stereotypes and engravings.

These type holders are heated in the printing system and pressed against the surface to be printed by a pneumatic cylinder. Pressure and heat are used to apply the ink to the product from the hot foil ribbon located between the type holder and product.

What do I need to integrate an Allen S-Compact into my application?

In order to integrate an Allen S-Compact printing system into your application, you require the hot foil coding system as well as a support with counter-printing plate. To operate the printer, a 230 V power supply and a pneumatic connection are required.

For the desired imprint, type holders and types for text and numbers, as well as stereotypes for the corresponding graphics are also needed.

Hot foil ribbons are necessary for printing, which we offer in different colors and widths to suit your print.
