The system uses 256 ink jets to print 100% verifiable codes, says the company, with printing comparable to that of a preprinted box.

Can print characters up to 2.8" H, as well as date codes, logo and a range of bar codes, including UCC/EAN 128 codes, at speeds to 150'/min. Uses Touch Dry® ink, Markem's quick-dry, nontoxic ink. Print head changeovers are as quick as 10 min, requiring only an Allen wrench.
