Videojet Technologies Inc., has launched the Videojet 8510, a compact inkjet printer designed to meet industrial coding application requirements for the packaging industry. Offering ease of operation and maintenance, the Videojet 8510 provides maximum uptime with fast, simple cartridge changes.
The printer is ideal for a wide range of primary and secondary coding and marking applications that ensure product integrity. Its touchscreen interface allows operators to access all common operations in five or fewer touches, reducing the learning curve and increasing operator productivity.
Simple Operation, Easy Maintenance
This highly functional, user friendly thermal inkjet printer incorporates the advantages of high resolution HP® printing technology with an 21cm (8.4-inch) intuitive menu-driven touchscreen interface, ensuring fast, error-free set up. With step-by-step prompting, each job can be input quickly and accurately, enabling packaging operations to better manage short run work with faster turnaround times.
Xavier Chaveton, Director, European Marketing Director Videojet Technologies Inc, said, Operators can quickly and easily ascertain the status of the printer, verify the print job that is currently loaded, and check cartridge ink levels and other production line data. This printer has been designed with ease of use and reliability in mind. As the job mix migrates toward shorter runs and faster turn times, users must be able to process more jobs in less time to handle increased job throughput. We believe the Videojet 8510 meets those needs superbly.
In addition to its easy-to-learn icon-based controls, the 600 x 600 dpi high resolution Videojet 8510 inkjet printer features spill-free print cartridges that are easy to change in less than a minute and 100% contained. Maintenance is as easy as wiping the print head when it becomes dirty and replacing the empty ink cartridge when it runs out, added Chaveton.
With no moving parts, the chances of line stoppages and costly maintenance are vastly reduced. Its compact controller and multiple low profile print head options make it perfect for integration into space-constrained locations.
Eliminate Coding Errors
The 8510 incorporates key elements of Videojet’s CLARiSUITE code assurance software, a scalable software solution that reduces human error in message set-up. This includes the CLARiSOFT message template creator that moves the critical task of message template creation away from the production floor. Packaging supervisors can embed rules-based guidelines into specific message fields, thus helping operators choose the correct data when setting up a packaging run and editing the code to be printed. A built-in web server allows menu navigation from the human machine interface on OEM packaging machinery while a range of communication interfaces allows remote control operation. Its high resolution print is perfect for applications that require optical character recognition (OCR) or optical character verification (OCV) for quality control purposes.
Ideal for Packaging Line Integration – Scaling with Operations as Needed
With an installed base of more than 7000 TIJ based controllers, Videojet understands the demands placed on packaging professionals due to the dynamic nature of the packaging market, including such things as code quality and code accuracy as well as broader packaging line concerns about throughput and uptime.
