Brooklyn Park, MN—Squid Ink Manufacturing, Inc., and Eastey Enterprises introduce an all-in-one package for product transport and inkjet printing—the CoPilot 500 Conveyor Kit.

The combination of Eastey EC-Series conveyors and Squid Ink’s CoPilot 500 inkjet printer provides an excellent solution for manufactures looking to begin printing on their corrugate cases.

Squid Ink’s CoPilot 500 Conveyor Kit offers manufactures a convenient way to order an all-in-one package for material handling and inkjet printing.
