Manufacturers using flexible packaging

Manufacturers using flexible packaging need a thermal transfer printing solution that is fast, easy, and virtually error-proof, allowing them to spend more time on critical aspects of their business, such as improving production line efficiencies and reduce total operating costs. In response to this need, Videojet has just expand its TTO product range with two new print head sizes in the Videojet DataFlex 6530 and 6330 series.

The 107mm DataFlex 6530 printer and the 32mm 6330 printer are part of the TTO Videojet DataFlex range, which is design to offer customers more productive operation. These new Videojet printers include the latest technology to further improve uptime, as well as boost productivity, quality and efficiency.

Features

The DataFlex 6330 32mm printer features revolutionary Videojet assure ™ technology, a feature also standard on its sister 53mm TTO models. This innovative technology consists of a built-in code quality checker that automatically checks the quality and position of the code, and displays a warning message when common code defects are detect. Users can then decide whether to stop the line to correct the fault, reducing the need to discard or repeat the product. This allows operators to focus on other areas of the production line.

Videojet Expands Range of Thermal Transfer Printers (TTO)

“Videojet iAssure ™ technology helps our customers reduce waste and product rework by . automatically verifying all codes without the need for additional hardware, installation or training,” . says Heidi Wright, Business Unit Director. from Videojet Technologies. When researching and evaluating customer requirements for a simple and . cost-effective code verification solution,. we initially consider a kind of traditional vision systems approach.
 
When we brought our ideas to market within our VOC validation, customers told us . that they want to integrate this capability into the printer, . but with no additional setup or adjustment requirements, Well, they already have . enough to consider to train their operators to become vision experts. Thus, iAssure technology greatly simplifies automatic code verification. When a predefine number of code defects are detect, it alerts operators . by stopping the line or rejecting products with poor code quality.

Unique Feature

It also displays production line tuning recommendations on the screen that can help improve code quality. There is no other thermal transfer printer on the market that offers this feature. ” alerts operators by stopping the line or rejecting products with poor code quality. It also displays production line tuning recommendations on the screen that can help improve code quality. There is no other thermal transfer printer on the market that offers this feature. ” alerts operators by stopping the line or rejecting products with poor code quality. It also displays production line tuning recommendations on the screen that can help improve code quality. There is no other thermal transfer printer on the market that offers this feature. ”

The Dataflex 6530 107mm and 6330 32mm printers are easily integrate into typical production lines. With a compact and modular design, manufacturers and OEMs have the flexibility to choose how they integrate the printer. The power supply can be position with the controller or separately and mount within the housing of the packaging machinery. Industry standard mounting options help simplify installation and improve operator interaction and accessibility.

Manufacturers also told us that they want to decrease the amount of components . that are expose in the production environment so that the new printers . have fewer cables and can also be control via the packaging machine’s . web interface to the Videojet controller is no longer need. In this way, manufacturers can have a single point of control for both the printer and the packaging machine.

Design Features

Design to withstand the toughest production lines, the 107mm DataFlex 6530 and . 32mm 6330 are airless, fully electronic printers, eliminating the need for expensive, . high-quality compress air. The compress airless design feature helps reduce operating costs, . enables more precise control of print head movement and increases throughput by up to 25%. In this way, operators no longer have to adjust air pressure . when trying to improve poor print quality – . a task that also increases the likelihood of printheads wearing out prematurely.
 
The DataFlex 6530 107mm and 6330 32mm printers also feature an industry-leading . quick-change cassette, which is design for excellent ribbon . efficiency and quick replacement, helping to maximize uptime. operation in production.

With a ribbon capacity of up to 1,200 m, manufacturers can increase productivity between ribbon changes.

“Our customers need solutions that offer fast, easy and virtually error-proof operation. Now with a wider variety of print head sizes incorporating industry leading features, .  this TTO series, which includes the new 6530 107mm and 6330 32mm printers, does just that, ”says Wright.
