Squid Ink Manufacturing, Inc. (squidink.com), a leading manufacturer of superior quality inks and ink jet printing equipment, introduces the new Squid CoPilot 382 Ink Jet Printing System. Squid Ink’s CoPilot 382 printing system is designed to print superior quality hi-resolution characters of either porous or non-porous surfaces.
With up to 2.1” of print height per printhead and the ability to run up to 2 printheads from one controller, the CoPilot 382 offers a versatile, yet cost effective solution for coding and marking applications.
CoPilot 382’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 382 printing systems can be connected via Ethernet or wirelessly and controlled through one central Orion™ print station.
The system is capable of running oil-based or solvent-based inks to print up to 4.2” (2.1” from a single head) of hi-resolution characters, razor-sharp text, scannable bar codes, and great looking logos at 185 dpi. For non-porous applications, users have the option of using Squid Ink’s solvent-based inks for printing on a variety of products like coated cartons plastics, glass, stretch 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.
The CoPilot 382 is designed to meet the harsh demands of industrial applications. 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 382’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.
The CoPilot 382 is available now through Squid Ink’s worldwide network of authorized distributors.
