A New IP65-Rated Small Character Coding Solution from Squid Ink

By Squid Ink Manufacturing, Inc.   

Squid Ink Manufacturing, Inc., a leading manufacturer of coding and marking systems for product identification and traceability, introduces the JetStream® IP CIJ printing system designed to operate in extreme applications, like high dust, cold rooms with condensation, or washdown environments.

The IP65-rated JetStream IP printing system prints up to five lines of superior-quality small characters on a variety of substrates: porous, non-porous, smooth, textured, curved, concave, and more. The JetStream IP offers a reliable yet cost-effective solution for the most extreme, harsh environment primary product coding applications.

Thanks to the IP65-rated cabinet, the JetStream IP can print in washdown and cold environments, including meat packing operations, cold rooms, food and produce packing, and more. And dusty environments like flour mills, cement plants, or timber yards are no problem with Jetstream IP’s pressurized system. The pressurized printhead and cabinet help prevent dust and fluids from entering the system and interfering with printing. As a protective measure, the printer will power down if air pressure is lost.

JetStream IP offers users the latest in today’s technology. The system’s simple-to-use 10.1-inch color touchscreen interface features several options to help users make their mark on various products while streamlining their coding operation. JetStream IP’s intuitive software allows users to print database messages straight from a USB drive and print messages with variable database information. Users can also select up to 16 quick-load messages for lines requiring quick message changeover. JetStream IP’s onboard software lets users make changes to graphics by utilizing the system’s onboard graphic editor for messages with graphic elements. With JetStream IP’s intelligent system software, users can print what they want when they want it.

The JetStream IP is designed with the low-maintenance features that users have come to rely on from Squid Ink. JetStream IP’s self-cleaning printhead with CleanJet™ maintenance routine allows quick and easy automatic start-up and shutdown. A simple press of a button commands the printer to go through a start-up cycle or flush the system for shutdown. When routine maintenance is required, quick disconnect components can be swapped out within minutes eliminating the need to purchase expensive filter and pump assemblies or schedule costly service calls. In addition, annual PMs can be made in minutes simply by swapping the entire ink system with an affordably priced refurbished system.
