SEASONAL agrochemical products and pesticides are often produced in challenging environments. What’s more, during peak season coding equipment is pushed to the limit before lying idle during the off-season.
That’s according to Pyrotec PackMark, local distributers of the continuous inkjet (CIJ) 9029 printer from Markem-Image, which it says is ideal for harsh conditions.
“It operates reliably, it’s easy to install, and its total cost of ownership is low,” the company said in a statement, adding that CIJ printers are ideal for printing onto HDPE, PET, and other bottle substrates because they offer superior print quality on rounded smooth surfaces.
Additionally, accurate and consistent marking of batch codes and numbers, lot codes, and manufacture dates ensure manufacturers remain within regulation guidelines, the company said.
“For manufacturers who want a trustworthy printer that helps secure products with quality, cost-effective codes; assurance that equipment is easy to order, install, use, and maintain; and coding that can quickly be brought online, even after storage and in challenging environments, the 9029 is ideal.”
Key benefits include easy installation and the fact it can be moved anywhere it’s needed thanks to its robust IP55 fully stainless-steel design.
Messages are easy to create and implement. Creating and uploading codes is quick, thanks to its user interface and USB connection.
“The M6 all-in-one ink circuit runs for approximately 8 000 hours, and the time it takes to change consumables is fully optimised. Changeover takes less than six minutes and no additional maintenance is needed.
“This coder’s intuitive online guide makes managing daily coding highly efficient,” the company said.
Print features include up to four lines of print at a speed of 4.4m/s, and font heights from 5 to 24 dots. Character heights range from 1.8 to 8.7mm with a wide array of character options.
The message library stores up to 100 messages, and the WYSIWYG backlit blue screen offers an international operator interface with a choice of 31 languages.
