Videojet
Technologies
, a global leader in coding, marking and variable data
printing solutions, recently announced its expanded range of TTO
products with two new printhead sizes in the Videojet DataFlex® 6530 and
6330 series. Manufacturers using flexible packaging require a thermal
transfer printing solution that is quick, simple and virtually
error-proof, allowing them to spend more time focusing on the critical
aspects of their business, such as improving production line efficiency
and reducing overall operating costs. In response to this need, Videojet
has developed the DataFlex 6530 107mm and 6330 32mm, which are part of
the Videojet DataFlex TTO range – designed to give customers a more
productive operation. These new Videojet printers embody the latest
technology to help further improve uptime and drive productivity,
quality and efficiency.

The DataFlex 6330 32mm comes with revolutionary Videojet iAssure™
technology, a feature also standard in its 53mm TTO sister models. This
innovative technology is a built-in code quality checker that
automatically checks for code quality and position and provides a
warning when common code defects are detected. Users can then decide
whether to stop the line to correct the fault, thus reducing the need to
scrap or rework product. This allows operators to focus on other areas
of the production line.

“Videojet iAssure technology helps our customers to reduce product waste
and rework by automatically checking every code with no additional
hardware, installation or training,” said Heidi Wright, business unit
manager for Videojet Technologies. “When we researched and evaluated the
customer requirements for an easy, cost effective code checking
solution, we initially considered some form of traditional vision system
approach. When we took our thoughts back to the market as part of our
VOC validation, customers told us that they wanted this capability to be
integrated into the printer, with no additional setup requirements or
adjustments because they have enough to consider without training their
operators to be vision experts. iAssure technology makes automatic code
checking so simple. When a pre-set number of code defects are detected,
it alerts operators by stopping the line or rejecting products with poor
code quality. It also provides on-screen recommendations for production
line adjustments that can help to improve the code quality. No other
Thermal Transfer Overprinter in the market can do this.”

The DataFlex 6530 107mm and 6330 32mm printers are easy to integrate
into typical production lines. Featuring a design that is modular and
compact, they offer manufacturers and OEMs the flexibility to choose how
they integrate the printer. The power supply can be placed with the
controller or separated and mounted inside the packaging machine
cabinet. Industry standard mounting features help to simplify
installation and improve operator accessibility and interaction.

Ideal for manufacturers who want fewer components exposed in a
production environment, the printers feature fewer cables and can be
controlled through the packaging machine’s web interface, eliminating
the need for the Videojet controller. This enables manufacturers to have
a single point of control for both the printer and packaging machine.

Designed to withstand tough production lines, the DataFlex 6530 107mm
and 6330 32mm are airless, all-electronic printers, eliminating the need
for high-quality and expensive compressed air. The airless design helps
to reduce operation costs, provide more precise control of the printhead
movement and increase throughput by 25 percent. Operators no longer need
to adjust the air pressure required when trying to improve print
quality, which can increase the potential for premature head wear.

The DataFlex 6530 107mm and 6330 32mm printers also feature an
industry-leading quick-change cassette that is designed to deliver both
excellent ribbon efficiency and fast ribbon replacement, helping to
maximize production uptime. With up to 1200m in ribbon capacity,
manufacturers can achieve more throughput between ribbon changes.

“Our customers need solutions that deliver quick, simple and virtually
error-proof operation. Now offering a wider variety of printhead sizes
that incorporate industry-leading features, this TTO series, including
the new 6530 107mm and 6330 32mm printers, does just that,” said Wright.
