An offline RF2 feeding system fitted with an iJet thermal inkjet coding system from Rotech has helped The English Cheesecake Company boost the speed and efficiency of its packing operations, allowing the company to date code a pallet’s worth of cheesecakes in less than two minutes. The English Cheesecake Company, based in West London, makes a wide range of luxury cakes, Most of the products are supplied blast frozen, with an outer sleeve and best before date applied before they enter the freezer. Rather than printing best before dates onto the filled cheesecake boxes, the new RF2 system prints them onto the flattened sleeves before they are erected. The RF2 feeding system takes a stack of flat sleeves and separates and feeds them rapidly through a compact, mess-free i-Jet thermal ink jet coder before re-stacking them on the other side. This enables the system to position the date codes precisely and virtually eliminates smudges and errors to deliver a high-quality result.
