Get a close-up view of Squid Ink Manufacturing's new LED UV curing lamp, which instantly dry and bonds ink to plastic containers and bags when placed immediately downstream of a printer, such as the company's CoPilot Ink Jet model, shown here.
Squid Ink showed off its BB-2/S case taper, designed for cost-effective top and bottom case taping for large-run case-sealing applications, integrated with the AutoPilot high-resolution ink-jet printing system. AutoPilot uses Xaar piezo technology to print up to .7 in. of characters, text, scannable bar codes, and logos at 180-dpi.
Squid Ink designs equipment to meet consumer concerns over mess, print quality, and cost, offering the AutoPilot, with patented, self-contained ink system supporting porous and nonporous inks, and a proprietary touch panel.
