Home » Videojet introduces the DataFlex 6320 and DataFlex 6420 thermal transfer overprinters
Videojet Technologies Inc. (www.videojet.eu), a world-leading manufacturer of coding, marking, and printing products, introduces two new Thermal Transfer Overprinters (TTO) to its industry-recognized DataFlex® product line. The new DataFlex 6320 and DataFlex 6420 are designed to address a range of flexible packaging and labeling applications in the snack foods, bakery, meat & poultry, confectionery and other markets. The DataFlex 6320, available in both 32mm and 53mm print width formats, is designed for low cost of ownership and is ideal for moderate speed applications including vertical form, fill and seal. The high performance DataFlex 6420 offers higher throughput to provide more capability for faster marking applications. Offered in both 53mm and 107mm print width formats, the DataFlex 6420 application range spans ultrafast horizontal form, fill, seal and wide format coding applications requiring a significant amount of content. Both models offer advanced features to improve uptime and productivity including a standard high capacity ribbon roll and ribbon saving features that provide industry-leading line throughput between ribbon changeovers. Videojet’s new TTO products are fundamentally simple to operate and come standard with Code Assurance. Videojet Code Assurance offers advanced features that help virtually eliminate product waste and re-work caused by coding errors by helping to ensure the right code is printed on the right product, time after time.
The Videojet DataFlex 6320 and DataFlex 6420 maintain the already-proven, patented, clutchless ribbon drive of the DataFlex offering. Installed on thousands of operational printers, the patented drive is completely software controlled, requiring no additional mechanical devices such as dancer arms, encoders or load cells to control ribbon movement and tension. This ensures that whether the application demands small codes at high print speeds or large format codes containing a lot of data, there will be virtually no unscheduled ribbon-related downtime due to ribbon wrinkling or ribbon breakages.
