Candy manufacturers must batch date code gummy candy, hard candy, and other confectionery to comply with food safety regulations. On candy production lines, they use pouch batch coding machines to mark expiration dates and product details on colorful packaging bags. Among these, TTO printers are popular for their cost-effectiveness, efficiency, and high-quality printing.

Pouch Batch Coding Machines in the Candy Production Lines

Pouches, especially zipper pouches, are common packaging materials for gummy candy, jelly beans, licorice, fruit snacks, and nuts. These bags prevent moisture and spoilage while allowing easy access to the contents.

When selecting a suitable candy pouch coding machine, food manufacturers must consider several factors:

● Printing Requirements

Candy batch coding includes printing real-time production and expiration dates, lot numbers, and tracking barcodes. 

To reduce costs, confectionery companies often use the same packaging bags for various candy varieties. Therefore, batch coding machines for pouches should also clearly and precisely mark and code food names, nutrition facts, ingredient lists, and other detailed information.

● Integration with Production Lines

In candy and snack factories, zipper pouches often require pre-printing with date and other information before being filled with candies, nuts, or other food items and sealed. Therefore, pouch batch coding machines must seamlessly integrate into production lines, adhering to the speed and workflow requirements of the assembly line.

● Cost Considerations

The initial cost of the pouch batch coding machine is a significant factor, but manufacturers must also consider the expense of consumables and ongoing maintenance. 

The best automatic batch coder should deliver high-quality printing while remaining cost-effective in terms of both initial investment and ongoing operational expenses.
