Squid Ink Manufacturing, Inc. (squidink.com), a leading manufacturer of superior quality inks and ink jet printing equipment, introduces the new Squid CoPilot 128 Ink Jet Printing System. The CoPilot 128 from Squid Ink offers users a low cost, high quality option for printing hi-resolution characters, barcodes, logos and more.
The system is capable of running oil-based or solvent-based inks to print up to 185 dpi at 135ft /min on a variety of substrates. For non-porous applications, users have the option of utilizing Squid Ink’s solvent-based inks to print a number of pigmented inks on a variety of non-porous products like, coated cartons, plastics, glass, shrink wrap, metals, and more. Squid Ink’s PZ-1000 ink for porous substrates offers low-maintenance performance, eliminating the need for auto-priming functions and offering better ink utilization than competitive systems.
CoPilot 128’s 4.3” full color touchscreen provides access to the system’s internal messages and print functions. Messages are created and edited on Squid Ink’s easy-to-use Orion™ PC Software and transferred via Ethernet or USB device. For larger applications, a virtually unlimited number of CoPilot 128 printing systems can be connected via Ethernet and controlled through one central Orion™ print station.
The CoPilot 128 is designed to meet the harsh demands of a user’s application. The printer features a durable touchscreen, industrial strength printhead construction, and print engines designed for industrial applications, not office applications. Users can be confident that CoPilot 128’s rugged design will withstand the most abusive industrial environments while providing superior quality print. The CoPilot also features a large 500ml cartridge or bag ink system. The generous ink volume allows users to keep their line running, reducing downtime and maximizing ROI.
