Environmentally friendly inkjet printer
Allen Coding announced the addition of Hitachi’s new UX inkjet printer series to its growing portfolio of marking and coding equipment at the PPMA show.
This latest system has been designed for ease of use and maintenance combined with improved environmental considerations and is ideal for printing on to drinks containers.
Available in three models – Basic Entry Level, Flexible Standard and Premium – it also features a new cartridge type system, which makes ink replacement clean and simple. The ability to check the finished image on the screen before going ahead with printing also helps to avoid errors and saves on wastage.
It prints at a maximum rate of up to 1,148 characters per second for the Basic and Standard models, with the option to upgrade the latter to 2,296 characters. The Premium unit offers up to 2,296 as standard.
Bar codes, 2D code printing and the ability to store between 150 and 2,000 messages are also features of the new product range.
