Variable Data Printing on Pasta Packaging in VFFS with MapleJet Hx Nitro on Traverse System

Efficient and accurate printing on pasta packaging is essential in today’s fast-moving production environments. Our latest installation introduces a transformative traverse system that revolutionizes the printing process, particularly in handling real-time variable external data. This blog will focus on the technical benefits and operational simplicity of this innovative system.

The Traverse System: High-Tech Simplicity

At the forefront of our technological advancement is the traverse system. Designed for ease of use, it introduces a plug-and-play approach while boasting high-tech capabilities. This system ensures precise and consistent printing on both sides of pasta pouches, a feat that traditionally requires complex and time-consuming setups. Its integration into existing production lines is a testament to its versatility and efficiency.

Real-Time Variable Data Printing: Accuracy and Speed

The ability to print variable data in real-time is a critical aspect of modern packaging. Our system excels in this area, seamlessly generating variable barcodes and accurately printing date codes. Data is transmitted securely through a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) over an isolated RS 232 line, ensuring both speed and reliability in printing the most up-to-date information on each package.

Hx Nitro TIJ: Optimized for Rapid Data Processing

Central to our printing solution is the Hx Nitro, equipped with four parallel processors. This advanced component is specifically designed to handle the demands of real-time data processing, ensuring that no matter the speed of the production line, printing remains uninterrupted and accurate.

Future-Proof Printing with Field Upgrade Feature

Our Maplejet printers are uniquely equipped with a field upgrade feature, an essential aspect in a rapidly evolving industry. This adaptability means that as new requirements emerge, the printers can be updated, ensuring that your investment remains cutting-edge and continues to deliver high ROI.

Wireless Control with Hx ControlPad

To complement the advanced capabilities of our printers, the Hx ControlPad offers wireless control, making it possible to manage printing operations from anywhere on the production floor. This Wi-Fi-based tablet simplifies the interaction with the printers, ensuring ease of use and flexibility in printer placement.


The integration of the traverse system in pasta production lines represents a significant leap in packaging technology. It not only simplifies the process of printing real-time variable external data but also enhances the overall efficiency and accuracy of packaging operations. As we continue to innovate, our focus remains on delivering solutions that combine ease of use with advanced technological capabilities, ensuring our clients are always at the forefront of industry advancements.
