Two for the Price of One

Markoprint® industrial coders offer maximum versatility for packaging operations. One example is the ability to code two products simultaneously with just one printhead. The two rows of print nozzles can be positioned over two substrates so the resulting codes are applied to both products. This effectively saves the customer 50% on hardware costs.

In the picture, an established food manufacturer worked with AT Information Products to integrate a Markoprint coder on its vertical Form Fill Seal machine. Pouches measure 3 x 5.5 inches and are constructed of 48-ga PET/four-color print/adhesive/0.025-mil EVOH LLDPE. Using solvent-based ink in a secure HP cartridge, the coder adds Best By dates to the preprinted sachet rollstock at 160/min. The Markoprint coder is programmed using iDesign software for label formats and database connections.

According to the customer, “In a matter of seconds, we can create a new message and send it to the printer via ethernet, WIFI or USB stick. Virtually all barcode types are supported, including all linear and 2D codes.” Markoprint print technology is based on HP THERMAL INKJET, which offers a number of benefits including:

• 300-dpi barcode-quality printing
• A patented Click’n Print cartridge replacement system that makes cartridge installation clean and easy
• Low operating costs
• Maintenance-free operations
