Rotech RF Lite Sleeve Printer


HFM Rating



The RF Lite is a simple, low-cost offline coding system.

The RF Lite can produce approximately 200 300mm sleeves or 250 200mm sleeves per minute. This compact machine can also handle a variety of sizes and shapes.

The friction wheels separate the sleeves, which are stacked in a vertical hopper. These are then fed individually to the inkjet printer.

The RF Lite also has an out feed catcher.

Product size:-

minimum 30mm x 70mm

maximum 300mm x 200mm

Sleeves are becoming an increasingly popular packaging choice for food products; particularly ready meals packaged in trays, tubs or pots.

However, date or batch coding onto sleeves online can present the following problems

  • Certain print areas may be hard to access
  • Tall tubs or pots can be unstable and difficult to guide down a packaging line
  • When placed around trays, sleeves can move making accurate code placement difficult

By taking the process offline, these issues can be solved. We have several systems ideally suited to the printing and coding of sleeves.


The RF Lite food sleeve coding system offers the ideal solution for companies looking to automate their date coding for the first time. Fitted with clean thermal inkjet technology, the RF Lite is ideal for clear, concise date or batch coding onto sleeves.

Rotech RF Compliance

The RF Compliance takes the complication out of serialisation. 

The Compliance system offers an offline or "near line" solution for printing pharmaceutical cartons, this offers many benefits, such as:

Pre printing of cartons allows for multiple lines, or even several hand packing stations.

The cartons go through the system in their flat form, eliminating any risk of the pack bulging, skewing or travelling away from the printhead. This means a perfect print is produced every time.

Product Inspection: Various inspection functions can be carried out to ensure both that the correct pack is being used and that the cored information has been applied.

Product Serialisation: The Compliance system can produce unique serialisation codes internally or receive them from and external source. 

Dimensions (LxWxH) = 2045 x 625 x 1465 mm
