Open Date’s engineering department has over 35 years of experience in designing and manufacturing mounting frames that meet the requirements of the customer, the printer and the parent machine.

Every parent machine has individual peculiarities and even common models are likely to have been customised by the manufacturer, agent or end user. Some will have insufficient space for a printer. Some will be continuous motion and some intermittent. Some will require the web to be printed on the top and some on the bottom. Different packs or labels will be longer or shorter, wider or narrower and, inevitably, print positions will be different.
