Latest ink jet printer has been developed to meet the coding needs of small to medium-sized firms

Markem-Imaje has launched a new cost-effective inkjet printer to give SMEs hassle-free product coding with a coder that is easy to install, use and maintain on a line.

Designed for low-to-medium duty operation up to‎ 4.4 m/s, it is not only easy-to-use and maintain, it adapts easily as production ramps up. Intended for a wide range of industries, it offers IP55 protection, making it ideal for many applications, including food and beverage.

For SMEs finding an easy-to-use coder that delivers quality codes, lot numbers and best before dates at an affordable price, and which can grow with their business, can be a challenge. However, Markem says its new machine meets quality goals via proprietary technology which ensures best-in-class performance and quality, regardless of environment, without needing extensive in-house technical support.

Easy to install, use and maintain, the 9330 coder can be operated anywhere, thanks to its IP55 rated stainless-steel cabinet, and features an automatic printhead cleaning system that makes start-ups simple and quick. All operators need to do is plug it in and start printing, even after weeks of storage.

This feature makes the coder particularly useful for seasonal production, such as coding fruit and vegetables.

Uptime is high as the 9330 can print more than 8,000 hours before needing preventive maintenance. Its day-to-day operating costs are also kept low as the coder uses the latest generation hydraulic system, cutting additive consumption by up to 50% versus competitor models in the same category operating at 20deg C.

A standard-priced MEK-free ink is available, facilitating supply, compliance and safety related issues. Furthermore, the 9330 features a smart consumable system that requires no set-up and prevents costly operator mistakes that can result from cartridge-related errors.

Suitable for a single line and easy to scale up, the coder meets the needs of SMEs from start up to more advanced applications as their business develops. Printing on a wide range of media including plastics, cardboard, metal, foil, paper and glass, it adapts to meet changing coding needs, now or in the future.
