Good day,


I work for a small food service company than has now ventured into food manufacturing. We would like to print relevant information on plastic film packaging such as the batch #, expiry date and the time it was produced. Do any of you all have experience using handheld printers to achieve this for small companies? Having an automated system is not feasible right now as the entire process is manual. Thank you for your time.

This is what we were using.
Cost-$3,500-$4k USD per gun. EBS makes it, the model we have is no longer sold but take a look at EBS hand held printers for the newer styles.
 If exposed to excessive use (like people drop kicking it) it has a tendency to dislodge the internal board connected to charging port
There is cleaning and maintenance involved (Mostly cleaning to keep ink jets free of debris)


You can install the software on your pc and use that to upload to specialized usb to control, Maint Manager says it's fairly intuitive
Maint Manager says it prints pretty great and as long as people aren't kicking it around the warehouse it is fairly reliable
I've attached some pics.

We converted a few lines from VideoJet to Snead. 


I highly recommend Snead, we use an automated one but they also have a handheld option that may work for your purposes. I can't speak with experience on their handheld. 


I can say their product has been extremely well received by production staff, is simple to use and maintain. It's also VERY affordable.
