Innovative Solutions for Enhanced Print Performance

Videojet will launch new technologies at Pack Expo and Pharma Expo including:

  • The new Videojet 1660CIJ printer engineered to help increase uptime, reduce cost of ownership and enhance profitability in high-use applications. Long Life Core™ technology offers five years of operation between planned wear parts replacement, delivering maintenance predictability and lower cost of ownership.
  • The new Wolke® m600 oem TIJ printer designed to deliver breakthrough integration versatility combined with the industry’s most powerful data handling and global track and trace capabilities. It offers secure ultra-fast processing of up to 20 unique records per second, including 2D DataMatrix and GS1 128 bar codes.

Other Videojet products to be showcased at Pack Expo include:

  • The Videojet 9550 with Intelligent MotionTMtechnology, a print and apply labeler that utilizes advanced direct drive technology to eliminate the manual adjustments, clutches and nip rollers that can cause downtime in traditional print and apply labelers. Videojet will demonstrate direct apply labeling in mainstream side and top label applications.
  • Inline thermal inkjet solutions, including the Wolke m600 touch and Videojet 8610 printing on uncoated and coated cartons.
  • CO2 laser marking systems, including the Videojet 3330 Laser and laser-reactive coatings to mark high resolution codes on both cartons and cases.

Booth visitors are also invited to experience live demonstrations of Videojet Remote Service. Available on Videojet 1000 Line printers, this innovation provides electronic notification to designated users regarding printer needs as well as potential system issues. Combined with exclusive remote access technology, users and Videojet technical support personnel can see into and evaluate printer performance from virtually anywhere for quick and simplified troubleshooting. This unprecedented access to printer operation data, coupled with remote access capabilities, increases collaboration and speeds printer adjustments, helping to keep printers online and production moving.

Videojet and its sister company, Esko, will also present a concept demonstration that can help manufacturers turn variable packaging content into managed dynamic data. Videojet will show how this variable information can be printed in real-time at the packaging line using print postponement and Videojet TTO printing technology.

In the Videojet booth at Pharma Expo, solutions ideal for printing and marking on pharmaceutical and medical device packaging will be demonstrated including:

  • The Videojet 8610Thermal Inkjet Printer. In addition to the new Woke m600 oem, visitors can see thermal inkjet technology in action with the high performance 8610. It combines the simplicity of a cartridge-based system with MEK-based industrial ink performance to print on non-porous substrates.
  • The Videojet IMprints Track & Trace Solution, an end-to-end, production-floor suite of hardware, software and services. The solution fingerprints brands to powerfully address specific threats of counterfeiting, diversion and recall. Its software generates unique codes to print on product packaging and maintains transaction data about products as they progress through the supply chain.
  • The new Videojet 7810 UV Laser Marking System on display for the first time at Pharma Expo. An ideal solution for high-quality, permanent traceability codes on pharmaceutical packaging, the 7810 UV laser produces high-contrast codes on hard-to-mark plastics, including high-density polyethylene (HDPE).
