Company: BestCode Products
Technology Snapshot: BestCode has launched the Next Series 8 Range of Continuous Ink Jet Printing Systems for printing “Small and Large Character” marks and codes. Print real-time “Best By,” “Lot Code,” “Sell By,” “Expiration Codes” and other identifying marks and codes to industrial and consumer goods to ensure product traceability.
The Next Series 8 Range of Continuous Ink Jet Printing Systems bring many new features and capabilities to the coding and marking industry – offering “Extended Operation Times,” “Automated End of Day Routine” eliminating typical manual routines, “New Level of User Simplicity,” abilities to print both “Small and Large Character” information, capability for “True Non-Contact Printing” extending the ink throw distance, and increasing print speeds to “Ultra High Speed” specifications.
Advanced CleanStart extends operation times by automatically cleaning printhead - eliminating daily and weekly cleanings typical in coding machinery. Operate more than 500 operation hours between human interactions.
BestCode’s AutoOff Go Home Button is used at the at the end of the day. Press the AutoOff Go Home Button automating and eliminating time consuming end of day manual routines by automatically cleaning the printhead and powering the system off. Press the button and go home – no wait time or manual routines to go through.
Next Series 8 Systems are simplified allowing anyone to operate, minimizing operator touches and extending time between human interaction. A large, 10.4” Color Touch Display is always on, offering a vivid display with large intuitive buttons and status indicators. OneTouch single step operator functions are in use throughout the interface to reduce operator steps. A true WYSIWYG environment provides the most realistic view of creating your print message.
Print marks and codes as small as .025" (.6 mm) – print on the edge of a toothpick or paperclip, and as large as .75" (19 mm) – print on the side of corrugated cases and other large character applications.
Print non-contact, immediate dry, permanent, high speed, reliable marks and codes on a wide range of substrates, including plastic, glass, paper and more. True Non-Contact Printing is ink throw distances at a minimum .5” (12mm) and up to 2” (50mm).
Multiple machine types and multiple speed settings enable BestCode systems to achieve the fastest print applications. A single line of text can print at speeds exceeding 2000 feet/minute (600M/minute), two lines over 600 feet/minute (200M/minute), three or four lines of print at 300 feet/minute (100M/minute).
The systems are “Built-to-Last” in a compact, all metal, lightweight space saving design. Operate in the most extreme wet and dry applications with an IP55, or IP65 rated enclosure for high dust. Series 8 enclosures are stainless steel 304 as standard and optional models are available using stainless steel 316.
Extend time between fluid additions to weeks or months even in high volume, demanding print applications. Tanks hold multiple liters of fluids for extended run time. Ink tank volumes can operate multiple months between additions. Makeup tank volumes can operate 1000+ operational hours between additions.
BestCode products are backed by CodeProtect, the industry’s best coding system coverage.
