The perfect date
Due to the date coder’s airless design there is no more intervention needed by the operator to adjust the air pressure
The new high-speed tna intelli-date 5 thermal transfer overprint (TTO) date coder from tna solutions Pty Ltd. features an airless design and integrated print code verification technology for continuous high-quality printing on flexible bags. Equipped with intelligent motion technology and a twin-belt electronic printhead, the new tna intelli-date 5 does not require any compressed air and provides more precise printhead pressure for consistently high-quality prints, according to the company. Due to the date coder’s airless design there is no more intervention needed by the operator to adjust the air pressure, while the date coder’s unique printhead can be changed in less than 30 seconds—maximizing production uptime. In combination with a simple easy-to-load cassette, there is no need for any additional mechanical devices to control ribbon tension, which facilitates maintenance and eliminates many potential failure points. Moreover, the date integrated iAssure technology with real-time image processing capabilities enables the tna intelli-date 5 system to automatically detect any common print defects, including those caused by ribbon creases, overprints, or worn print surfaces.
