Videojet launches thermal transfer overprinter to reduce packaging coding errors

26 July 2018

Videojet Technologies, a provider of coding, marking and printing solutions, has introduced a new 6230 thermal transfer overprinter (TTO) to help reduce flexible packaging coding errors.

Videojet 6230 TTO is an easy-to-use printer, which enables manufacturers to decrease flexible packaging coding errors and enhance total cost of ownership (TCO).

Featuring advanced Videojet technology, the new 6230 printer features a simple cassette design that supports long production runs.

With enhanced code assurance capabilities, Videojet 6230 TTO will help manufacturers to print codes correctly and accurately, time after time.

The printers’ 700m ribbon length is much longer than ribbons generally used for hot stamp printers, helping to maximize production uptime.

Videojet 6230 TTO is also provided with airless printer design that eliminates the need for compressed air. It is installed with fewer wear parts through the exclusion of air hoses and connectors.

The printer components can be easily replaced without affecting production, and the advanced printhead will help provide maximum uptime and requires no additional operator intervention to return to printing functionality.

The printer, which is designed to withstand typical production line environments, can be easily incorporated into most production lines.

Videojet Technologies TTO business unit manager Heidi Wright said: “Manufacturers have lacked flexibility when choosing how they want to operate their Thermal Transfer Overprinter.

“With an intuitive 5” color touchscreen controller and one-touch job selection functionality, the Videojet 6230 is an easy-to-operate printer and an ideal solution for manufacturers who wish to migrate from hot stamping technology.

Code assurance feature in the printer will be useful for manufacturers in code creation with VideojetConnect Design or CLARiSOFT software, enabling to reduce operator interactions and resulting in fewer user errors and product waste and rework.

The 6230 printer is available with optional Bluetooth capability, and can be controlled from an Android phone rather than a HMI.

Wright further added: “Videojet continues to invest in product research and development. We are very pleased that this new Thermal Transfer Overprinter offers manufacturers a solution to help reduce flexible packaging coding errors and improve total cost of ownership.”
