Introducing the Autobag PI 412c - Superb resolution in-line printing for optimum packaging productivity.

Capable of imprinting at speeds up to 12" per second, which equates to approximately 80 bags per minute in-line, this programmable thermal-transfer printing system has been designed to meet all the newest industry specific printing requirements. The PI 412c is simple to use, dependable and operationally flexible to give maximum uptime and packaging productivity.

When used in conjunction with the Autobag AB 180 bagging system, product identification utilizing barcodes, text and graphics can be easily applied to individual packages in-line and indexed for product loading and sealing in a simple "Print-n-Pack" operation. Label changes can be achieved in an instant by simply accessing pre-stored label designs or through database downloads with a PC connection.

Utilizing the latest technology, the Autobag PI 412c is capable of printing virtually all barcodes available today, including 2D barcodes and UPS MaxiCode.

In-Line Integrated Packaging is achieved by combining the PI 412c and AB 180 bagger with ancillary equipment. Autobag manufactures a complete line of infeed and imprinting equipment.
