Tabletop printer eliminates labels
Delivering 300 dpi resolution at speeds of 4- to 10-ft. of pouch stock/second, the Thermal Printmaster from About Packaging Robotics, Inc. provides maximum variety and flexibility for printing on pouches, bags, and flats of polymers, foils, and Tyvek with thickness up to 350 g/m2, and pouch width of 1.25- to 6-in.
The 300 dpi resolution delivers needle-sharp logos, text, and bar codes using the newly-developed Near-Edge Type Print Head with integrated temperature control to give the appearance of preprinted pouches. By inserting the pouches and pressing the "ONLINE" key, the lift-tray rises automatically and the stock is printed and deposited in a collection tray. The width and length of the collection tray can be adjusted to conform to the size of the pouching stock. Seventeen standard fonts and two vector fonts allow a wide range of print design. All standard bar codes are integrated in the system. The Thermal Printmaster has a highly-effective and economical ribbon-saver. The 656-yard ribbon reduces replacement time. The ribbon can be purchased in varying widths, eliminating waste. This system operates with Flash-Proms via a parallel interface. Data can be fed in at any time eliminating the need to change Eproms. The Thermal Printmaster can direct print to media which is 1-1/2- to 10-in. wide, and provides a maximum of 8-1/2-in. wide print area.Features a rugged steel printing platform, high resolution print capability, quality copy registration, and a stepper motor driven infeed to insure positive automatic feed of a wide range of varnished, polished, or porous flat (no folds, perforations or seams) products.
