With it's unique ability to mark moving as well as stationary products, the Hot QuickCoder has the ability to be used in both manual and automatic applications while still offering extremely low maintenance and operating cost.
This system can be used instead of an inkjet - removing the need for messy inks, constant maintenance and high expense. You can purchase about 3 or 4 Hot QuickCoders for the price of 1 base model CIJ.
You can also use this system in place of a hotfoil coder or a rotary coder - installed in an incredible amount of different applications.
One simple, versatile standard package
No matter what application you require, the standard Hot QuickCoder package can cope.
The set comes complete with mounting bracketry needing only 2 mounting points for installation on any angle - printing from the top, side, bottom or at various rotations.
The control unit can be mounted separately from the printing unit to achive easy access away from the printing location.
Printing on practically any material
The Hot QuickCoder is able to print onto practically any porous or
non-porous substrate including (but not limited to):
- Flexible Plastic (Film)
- Hardwall Plastic (bottles, parts etc..)
- Metals (aluminium, foils, stainless steel etc...)
- Cardboard/Carton/Paper (varnished or unvarnished)
Special thermofusible ink cartridges
One of the most attractive features of the Hot QuickCoders is the inking system.
- Instantly dry prints
- NO drips, No mess, NO dirty hands
- NO solvents required
- NO blockages or startup flushing & "priming"
- NO ongoing "running" maintenance
- NO hazardous goods, fumes or storage needs
- Instant ink colour changes
- Exceptionally low running cost compared to ink-jet technology
As standard - marks on moving products
With the specially designed "butterfly touch" mechanism, it is possible to print up to 300 codes per minute onto moving products to a maximum speed of 60 meters per minute! - WITHOUT needing any special modifications or additions.
Therefore it is possible to replace an inkjet printing directly onto bottles travelling on a conveyor line, or use the HQC to print onto packing films on a vertical or horizontal form-fill-seal or flow packing unit.
