Videojet Technologies, featured in our ‘Best of 2014 Review’ , recently launched pioneering advancements in design and engineering printing concepts, including Videojet 9550 label print and apply system (LPA) and an innovative thermal ink jet printer, Videojet 8610. Taking an innovative approach to print and apply labeling design, the Videojet 9550 was intelligently designed to remove the mechanisms that frequently cause everyday operational problems, such as manual adjustments and 80 per cent of wear parts, eliminating the common causes of operational problems and downtime.
The Videojet 9550 LPA System with Direct Apply™, places the label onto the pack without the need for a tamp or air blast applicator, achieving throughput of up to 150 packs per minute for typical 4” x 6” GS1 bar code labels. Never missing a label, even after line build-backs, the Videojet 9550 LPA System helps enable manufacturers to tackle the key issue of everyday operational coding, marking and labeling problems such as label slippage and constant manual adjustments.
Utilising fast-drying inks including Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK)-based fluids, the Videojet 8610 provides high resolution print on non-porous packaging materials including films, foils, plastics, and coated stocks – ideal for the needs of food packaging, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics operations for high resolution coding on non-porous packaging. In addition, the technology meets the growing needs of packaging professionals to in-line print multi-line codes and other high resolution marks such as DataMatrix and QR codes, without modifying their packaging designs. Coupled with the automated Cartridge Readiness System™, the 8610 print system is seamless to integrate, regardless of the frequency or length of common line interruptions.
In a highly competitive and time-demanding era, manufacturers, brand-owners and retailers now, more than ever, need to guarantee the traceability and authenticity of their products. Not only do companies need to continually produce new products to meet consumer demand but protect brand identity through high quality coding and marking solutions, and help ensure compliance with regulations.
