Squid Ink: High-resolution ink jet printing system

Squid Ink’s new PZ Pilot Touch hi-resolution ink jet printer provides high-quality printing as either an oil-based system for printing on porous surfaces like corrugated cases, or as a solvent-based system for printing on non-porous products like plastics, PET bottles, PVC pipe, metals and foils, blister packs, coated corrugate, and more.

The PZ Pilot Touch also has the ability to run pigmented inks, useful for PVC applications.

The PZ Pilot Touch utilizes piezo printhead technology to print up to four lines of text at 135 ft./min. Users have the option to run up to two .7-in. printheads from a single 12.1-in. touchscreen controller to print on two sides of a product, and the ability to network up to 10 printers using the company’s ImageMaster Net software.

The Pilot Touch printheads’ small footprint allows users to add the system to areas on the line where most printing equipment can’t fit. The result is a system that produces sharp text, scannable bar codes, and clean logos and graphics.

The PZ Pilot Touch is engineered for industrial-strength operation.  Heavy-duty cabinetry and printhead bracketry help ensure continuous operation in abusive industrial environments.  In addition, the PZ Pilot Touch was designed as a modular system.  Quick and easy-to-install replacement printheads, circuit boards, and ink system modules minimize downtime and eliminate service calls.  A fix can be completed in less than 5 minutes.
