The hpdSYSTEM hot foil coding system marks your tires after vulcanization and quality inspection (Tire uniformity/Tire balancing/ Tire geometry). With different symbols and/or colour combinations you can fulfill all of your customer requirements.
- The enTIRE world of marking and coding
Tread Marking with Inkjet
Thanks to the IP 65 protection class, the alphaJET matches the harsh environmental conditions perfectly. The inks from Koenig & Bauer Coding contain no kerosene components. With the use of networked software, the production process can be better monitored and the availability of the devices checked even faster.
Depending on customer requirements, the ink can disappear completely during vulcanization or withstand this process for a constant high contrast marking.
Tread Marking with Laser
Laser tread marking is a state-of-the-art marking process for the tire manufacturers.
Laser systems from Koenig & Bauer Coding achieve a highly visible contrast without the need for consumables. This laser marking disappears after the curing process and helps your operators to ensure correct article selection for each tire in the tire manufacturing process.
Koenig & Bauer Coding lasers mark without direct contact with the material and can be used in a very sustainable way.
