One-stop shop for unique and brillant coding at best conditions.

In cooperation with numerous machine builders (OEMs - especially in the field of final finishing) we have developed a range of low-maintenance and reliable marking solutions. Tire manufacturers all over the world appreciate these innovative and highly reliable systems.

Our coding systems offer not only precise tire markings for high product safety but also excellent reliability and cost savings in your daily tire production. The Koenig & Bauer Coding portfolio offers models as well as suitable consumables to meet your needs in every application to fulfil your individual marking requirements.

Semi Finishing Area

alphaJET continuous inkjet printers mark the various components of a tire individually and without any refitting costs. The integration of the print head requires only a minimal of modification - for full traceability of the individual components.

Mixing Area
The different rubber components are mixed together in the so-called Banbury Mixer.Before the next working step, the various rubber compounds are stacked on pallets. In order to avoid any confusion between the individual components, high-contrast inks can be used for 100 % identification of your material. You benefit from lowest consumption and contact-free marking without downtimes.

Tread marking
Individual marking of the tread with your time of manufacturing or with the type designation/composition: the alphaJET masters all requirements in this area. The marking leads to an unambiguous identification of the compounds. Our inks do not include kerosene components. Thanks to the IP65 protection class, the alphaJET matches perfectly with the harsh environmental conditions. With the code-M software networked, the production process can be monitored better and the availability of the devices checked even faster. Depending on customer requirements, the ink can disappear completely during vulcanization or withstand this process for a high contrast marking.

Final Finishing Area

The hpdSYSTEM hot foil coding system marks your tires after vulcanization and quality inspection (Tire uniformity/Tire balancing/ Tire geometry). With different symbols and/or colour combinations you can fulfill all of your customer requirements.

High point marking
The galley (type holder) for hpdSYSTEM moto with patented swivel type fits perfectly to the sidewall contour of a tire. In combination with LTA dots in different colours and adhesive characteristics you achieve brilliant printing results. You can use both, LTA or hot stamping/premium ribbon foil, with only slight adjustments.

Take advantage of the outstanding print quality and precisely positioned, high contrast coding with hpdSYSTEM. The marking remains safe, even under heavy loads, far beyond the assembly process.

Mark with various symbols or symbol/colour combinations according to your, or your customers specifications. Koenig & Bauer Coding's solutions are integrated in cooperation with world-renowned manufacturers of tire measuring stations. If you use hpdSYSTEM, maintenance and consumption costs are considerably lower than using other technologies (e.g. tampon printing, ink jet system).

The choice of consumables is decisive for the quality levels of the marking on the tire. Benefit from an comprehensive portfolio for marking with ink, basic hot stamping foil up to high-quality and consistent printing on the sidewall.
