There is no doubt that one of the trickiest parts of adding an on-line hot foil or thermal transfer printer to a production line is designing a compatible printer mounting frame.
Open Date has acquired a reputation for which it is proud for the design and manufacture printer mounting frames that are compatible with both the performance requirements of the parent machine and the customer's production requirements.
Open Date"s engineering department has over 40 years of experience in designing and manufacturing mounting frames that meet the requirements of the customer, the printer and the parent machine.
Every parent machine has individual peculiarities and even common models are likely to have been customised by the manufacturer, agent or end user. Some will have insufficient space for a printer. Some will be continuous motion and some intermittent. Some will require the web to be printed on the top and some on the bottom. Different packs or labels will be longer or shorter, wider or narrower and, inevitably, print positions will be different.
