Videojet offers different technologies to enable you to select the best labeler or bar code printer for your product.

The bar code is a type of numerical code with lines or bars containing individual and precise information on a product. The printing of this code on any product helps ensure effective traceability, as this symbol stores various information such as expiry date, batch number, general information, date of processing, etc.

The clearer and more legible the bar code, the easier it is for optical readers to interpret the encrypted information of the product, which is why Videojet is the best option to print your bar code.
