Coding of Foil on Flow Pack

The X1Jet from AT Information Products is a versatile coding machine that can be integrated with other packaging machinery.  In the video below, X1Jet is mounted on a Flow Pack machine for the purpose of adding a lot number, barcode and text description onto the plastic foil.

Just a few years ago this print application was not possible for HP thermal inkjet technology.  However, with the introduction of the HP 45si industrial cartridge, the printing possibilities are greatly expanded.  For this application HP 2580 Black Solvent ink is jetted from the print cartridge and has no difficulty adhering to the plastic film.
