Eidos has been developing and patenting direct thermal transfer printing processes for over forty years. The solution is particularly effective for printing variable data in real time on industrial products. With Coditherm, the accuracy, reliability, cleanness and outstanding flexibility of this technology are available also for marking the most diverse materials and shapes. H-PAD is the Coditherm model made by Eidos specifically for printing text and variable codes in recessed areas of plastic containers. Evolution of the PAD model (well known for its reliability), H-PAD has a high power piston capable of developing a force of up to 2000 kg, in addition to new, higher performance pad heaters. With its innovative features, H-PAD is a leap forward in terms of performance:
Printing inside recessed areas in containers requires very special technical requirements that H-PAD can fully satisfy. The pad is dimensioned to operate in recesses up to 20 mm deep. The high impression force contributes to flattening the plastic surface during printing. This makes the operation easier, the result more accurate and the better quality. The specific features and the potentials of H-PAD make it suitable to mark a wide variety of containers:
H-PAD uses hot printing foil like thermal ribbons designed specifically for thermal transfer by Eidos. Two families of ribbons of different colours have been developed specifically for printing on plastic containers:
