Goplasticpallets invest in a new thermal printing machine

Demand for increased flexibility on printed containers fuels further growth for Goplasticpallets

Goplasticpallets, the UK’s leading independent distributor of returnable plastic transit packaging (RPTP), has invested in a state-of-the-art, thermal printing machine. The new purchase comes in response to growing customer demand for branded totes and trays. In particular, small quantities of boxes with printed identification markings.

Traditionally, printed containers have only been available in very large quantities and as a result, come with a long lead time.

Small boxes, small quantities, increased flexibility

Thanks to the new Coditherm H-PAD, Goplasticpallets can now offer customers even more flexibility, printing in batches as small as a few hundred units, within two or three working days.

Based at Goplasticpallets’ main warehouse in Eastbourne, home to the company’s vast stock inventory, operatives can now accurately print logos and identification markings, such as part product numbers, barcodes, SKU and QR codes, onsite immediately from order processing.

Coditherm H-PAD, a state-of-the-art thermal printing machine

The Coditherm H-PAD, a pneumatic printing machine, uses high-power, thermal transference to print onto recessed areas of structured plastic containers. This makes it ideal for printing on Automotive KLTs, Euro containers, food-grade boxes and bail-arm crates.

The great advantage of this thermal printing machine is its ability to imprint on diverse materials, including PE (Polyethelene) and PP (Polyproplene) and within very small margins. Manufactured in Italy by Eidos, the Coditherm H-PAD has a good reputation for both quality and accuracy.

Goplasticpallets, who pride themselves on offering a quick and customer-focused service, has experienced remarkable growth over the past two years. The addition of this new printing machine will further strengthen their offering. Enabling them to provide a fast turnaround on printed small containers.

Managing Director Jim Hardisty remarks on their decision to invest in the Coditherm H-PAD thermal printing machine;

“We’ve seen a growing demand from customers across all industries for a printing service that not only responds to their needs quickly, but enables them to purchase containers and totes in small quantities, with specific identification markings. Having the new thermal printing machine onsite means will be able to offer customers the flexible service they need and deliver within 2-3 working days.”
