What are deep-freeze labels?
There are two types of freezer labels. The difference is in the glue used. It depends on when you label.
There are labels that you apply to products in an environment above 0°C and then take them to a frozen environment down to -40°C.
There are other labels that are applied directly to certain frozen products.
The difference lies in the type of glue.
Does the Codipack range also include thermal labels?
Thermal labels have a top layer. This top layer reacts to the heating of the print head. The heated part discolors and shows what needs to be printed. These are labels with a short life span, for example a receipt.
Does Codipack supply labels for my label printer?
Yes, we do.
Codipack does not only deliver labels for the printer you purchased through Codipack. We can also deliver labels for printers that do not come from us. Don’t hesitate to ask for a price via firstname.lastname@example.org
How do I best store my labels?
Keep your labels in a dry place, in the original packaging. In a place without big temperature fluctuations, in an environment without humidity.
The best conditions for storing labels are room temperature (+20°C) and a humidity of 50% (RH50%).
Can I also order labels from Codipack?
Yes, you can.
With 4 fully automated production lines, we manufacture quality labels. From the best base material. With the most suitable adhesive. And the right carrier tape.

Why do I need a label management system?
A label management system ensures that your designs are used as efficiently as possible. They are not scattered on all sorts of computers and are not duplicated. It also prevents you from having to design a label for every item-customer combination, which means you’ll have to maintain thousands of layouts over time. A well-designed label management system is cost-effective.
What is NiceLabel?
NiceLabel is a collective name for labeling software ranging from a designer to a complete label management system. You can use it to design and manage labels and ensure that the right information is on your label.
Here is an example from the field.

How does a USB scanner work?
A USB scanner is recognized by the computer as a keyboard. All scanned barcodes are transmitted, as is keyboard input.
Is an inkjet printer suitable in a food production environment?
Codipack has a range of food grade inks and provides the necessary certificates. We even have edible inks that can come into direct contact with food.
Will Codipack install the labeling machines?
After ordering your machine, a project manager will be assigned to visit your site and go over all the details with you.
For the installation itself, Codipack has a team of service engineers who will carry out the installation on site according to the agreements made with the project manager. In this way, Codipack ensures a perfect delivery.
What is the difference between simple “print & apply” and “print & apply” in real time?
With the “print & apply” system, there can be a buffer of printed labels between the printer and the application system. With real time print & apply, there is no buffer between the printer and the application system. The printed label is applied immediately.
What accessories are available for label printers?
The two most commonly used accessories are dispensers and rewinders.
A dispenser ensures that the labels – once they are all printed – are dispensed 1 by 1 so that they can be stuck on immediately. Codipack’s label dispenser is available in three versions: automatic label dispensers, manual label dispensers and label clamps.
A rewinder ensures that the labels are rewound after printing. You can find more information about dispensers and rewinders on our website.
Can I get spare parts for my devices from Codipack?
Codipack delivers original parts for the devices we sell as long as they are still produced by the manufacturer.

How do I choose the right label printer?
There are a number of things to think about when working with a label printer. What are the dimensions of your labels? Do you need certain options such as a cutter or a dispenser? What information will you be printing and what interfaces should the printer contain? You see, there’s a lot to consider. But don’t worry, at Codipack we are here to offer you the best solution for you.
How can I determine the correct resolution for my printer?
The resolution is expressed in DPI values. DPI stands for Dots Per Inch. It is the number of dots per inch. One inch is 2.54 centimeters. The more of these “dots” on a small area, the higher the resolution and the sharper the image.
For printing text and 1D barcodes, a resolution of 203 DPI is sufficient. If you want to print 2D barcodes (such as QR codes), logos, images or very fine text, we recommend a resolution of 305 DPI. Some printers are also available in 600 DPI resolution, for specific applications where sharpness must be very high.
What is thermal transfer printing?
Thermal transfer printing uses an ink ribbon. It is located between the print head and the surface to be printed. By heating the printhead, the ink is released and the data is printed on the label. This application is suitable for labels where the print must remain readable for a long period of time.
What is direct thermal printing?
Direct thermal printing is ideal for labels with a short life span. Think of a receipt, for example. With direct thermal labels, the ink is embedded in the label. The print is created by heating the print head. The label has a top layer. This reacts to the heating. The heated part fades and shows what is to be printed. The advantage is that you do not need ribbons to print. The disadvantage is that the print head can wear out faster because of the direct contact with the label.
What is the difference between inkjet and laser?
Inkjet brings information to a product. The inkjet head prepares tiny drops of ink and then blows them onto the object.
A laser does not apply to the surface of the object, but burns it. This technology is used to capture the information on a product. There is no contact between the product and the coding system.
