Roll Coders for Porous Surfaces

 For harsh industrial environments

Universal's contact roll coders for porous surfaces are available in both hand held and fixed mount models. Designed and built for harsh industrial environments, these coders feature precision machined components made from aircraft grade aluminum alloys, stainless steel mounting columns and shafts and sealed ball bearings for smooth print drum rotation. Unique features which include compression springs mounted over stainless steel guide rods to prevent spring breakage and delrin guides to prevent binding of moving parts provide a durability unsurpassed in the world of contact coding. Our fixed mount coders are designed to accommodate our patented 4 oz. Reservoir Ink Cartridges which re-ink the ink rolls automatically during production.
