The kortho rollcoder is a simple, reliable and efficient contact printer which affords quality printing results at a minimum price. The kortho rollcoder prints on almost any substrate and in any position. The kortho rollcoder primarily consists of two main components: a text roll and the inking unit. Rubber texts and / or logos are easily attached to the text roll, in any given layout. The text roll, driven by the product to be printed on, automatically picks up the ink from the inking unit. After the print has been applied, the rollcoder automatically repo sitions the text roll for the next print cycle.
