The Videojet DataFlex® Plus thermal transfer overprinter (TTO) provides an IP65-rated printer unit and an IP55-rated graphical user interface (GUI) control unit that provides protection against dust and water ingress, making it suitable for hygienic packaging applications.
Prior to cleaning, a line operator simply replaces the standard ribbon
cassette of the IP-rated DataFlex Plus printer unit with the IP-rated
cassette. Then the printer does not have to be removed from the
production line or protected with a sheet during cleaning and washdown
routines. This saves time on pre-cleaning preparation and
post-cleaning reinstallation and setup. The printer’s RS232, Ethernet,
digital I/O and USB connections also are IP65-rated. The DataFlex Plus
also has direct-drive ribbon technology with no wearable parts. And
features 1,000-meter ribbon capacity.
