New Communicator II Thermal Transfer Overprinter

Sep 30, 2008

ID Technology, a division of ProMach and a leading provider of labeling, coding and marking solutions, has released the COM II - a versatile thermal transfer overprinting solution for flexible packaging in high volume manufacturing environments. The COM II 300dpi print head produces sharp, high-quality text, bar codes, logos and Data Matrix codes. This printer is suited to high speed production lines and has been designed to integrate seamlessly into a wide range of flexible packaging machines including vertical and horizontal form/fill/sealers. Simple technology provides consistency with low maintenance requirements, increasing profitability and equipment effectiveness.

Built-in intelligence eliminates the need for an attached controller. Instead communication with the printer is accomplished using a PC with web browser software, existing OEM interface or an optional, simple to use touch screen. The COM II has easy, onboard label creation software and multiple message storage, enabling quick and simple message changeover. For further cost savings, the patented variable Ribbon Economy function reduces the amount of ribbon used per print without compromising on print resolution. Ribbon retraction feature minimizes the gap between prints, ensuring maximum efficiency of ribbon usage. The COM II has a maximum print speed of 1400mm/sec, uses 1400 meter length ribbon and has a print area of up to 128mm wide x 2400mm long.
