Coders are used to place information like manufacturer, product, and production information, as well as size, price, and date or other details on products or packaging. There are many different kinds of coders; the most common types of coders are laser coders and inkjet coders. Inkjet coders print coding on packaging using an air jet to spray tiny beads of ink on the package surface. Laser coders use a high-intensity burst of laser light to burn a code into the surface of a product. Changes made to the code being printed or etched are done through the machine’s electrical control panel.
