The Apsolute thermal inkjet marking system can be used to meet the increasingly stringent need of manufacturers to track and trace product to the point of production. Designed as a replacement for traditional continuous inkjet, laser, thermal ribbon and other coding technologies for both primary and secondary packaging applications, the system is capable of printing independent information on several production lines simultaneously.
With up to 600 dpi print quality, manufacturers can achieve savings through the use of generic packaging and good print capabilities. Julian date codes, use-by dates and production dates enable traceability back to the exact time of production, and automatic rollover prevents operator error. Language specific capabilities are also provided to meet the needs of export markets.
Other features include: zero maintenance, operator-friendly coding, no moving parts design, and ink cartridge electronics to drive a wide range of solvent-based thermal cartridge inks. The absence of harsh chemicals and inks leave production facilities without the hassle of messy conveyor belts or floors.
The system is capable of satisfying changing government standards through software upgrade and non-costly hardware. It can be integrated with internal systems providing feedback to mainframes.
Suitable for food and beverage producers, one controller can be used to run several lines in a production plant and is able to print on both primary and secondary packaging.
