Viper Thermal Inkjet Coder

The Viper is a class leading thermal inkjet coder combining high performance and speed with extreme reliability, accuracy and no maintenance requirements.

Suitable for printing on a range of porous and non-porous packaging materials for both primary and secondary applications, the Viper uses HP®’s thermal inkjet (TIJ) technology to provide print heights from 12.7mm to 50.9mm at a resolution of 600dpi.

The zero maintenance TIJ technology, combined with the CLARiTY® interface provide the lowest possible cost of ownership, and best in class ROI figures.

Flexible, high quality and scalable printing

  • Fast, consistent, trouble free printing with excellent code clarity.
  • Printhead configuration for up to four printheads with print heights from 12.7mm to 50.8mm at print speeds up to 75 metres per minute.
  • Print up to four lines of 600dpi resolution vertical and horizontal text, bar codes, 2D data matrix codes and logos.
  • Reliable and maintenance free
  • Maintenance free printer with no replacement parts other than the inkjet cartridge – just replace the ink when required and go.
  • Clean, mess free and easy to change HP® ink cartridges.

Intelligent and intuitive interface

  • Easy to learn, quick and error free icon based controls and wysiwyg image display with the CLARiTY coder operating system.
  • On-board application qualification and technical diagnostics ensure precise set-up and maximum uptime.
  • Printer cloning, master/slave mode and several methods of connectivity ensure security of data being coded.

Viper Thermal Inkjet Coder
High Definition Case Coders

High Definition Case Coders

Designed and developed in Nottinghamshire, UK, the ICE Torus range of large character ink jet printers continue to deliver state-of-the-art technology in a compact design.

The printer combines consistent high resolution prints with a simple user interface to make message selection quick and easy. The unique self-cleaning printhead and ink micropurging process ensure the highest quality bar codes and images on every case with no ink wastage.

Designed for porous and corrugate case packaging substrates, the Torus is designed to work in even the dustiest environments and delivers an efficient solution for the lowest cost of ownership.

Consistent, high quality printing with unique ink reclaim

  • 180dpi high definition printing for sharp text and graphics at speeds of up to 31 metres per minute
  • No ink wastage due to the unique, patented ink reclaim system which ensures every drop of purged ink is recycled back in to the printer, allowing increased coding and lower cost of ownership
  • Simple mess-free ink replacement during production for continuous operation
  • Immediate changes can be made to the coding size and content meaning no label wastage or pre-printed boxes required

Reliable and maintenance free

  • Maintenance free printer with no wear parts or line disruptions – just replace the ink when required and go
  • Non-pressurised ink system eliminates potential downtime from maintenance on pumps, solenoids and other moving parts
  • Patented self-cleaning printhead leaves the printer self-sufficient with no risk of nozzle blockages
  • Flexible and compact
  • Three models available incorporating 17mm, 50mm and 70mm printheads
  • A small, compact unit takes up minimal space and easily integrates into existing conveyors or end-of-line packaging systems
  • Intelligent and intuitive interface
  • Easy to learn, quick and error free icon based controls and wysiwyg image display with the CLARiTY™ coder operating system
  • Inherent self-diagnostics, simple priming procedures and the ability to compensate for variations in packaging substrates ensure precise set-up and consistent performance
  • Printer cloning, master/slave mode and several methods of connectivity ensure security of data being coded

Vulcan Print & Apply Labeller – The future of LPA technology

Labelling for secondary packaging

  • Print on traded unit boxes and shrinkwrap packs
  • Labels can be applied on any side of a pack or wraparound
  • Paper labels – either thermal transfer or direct thermal
  • Suitable for all industries

Faster print speeds permit direct application

  • Up to three times faster print speeds and no missed packs, even when packs are very closely spaced.
  • The first of its kind to print and directly apply labels in one continuous action.
  • No tamp applicator or compressed air required, saving costs and potential downtime from maintenance associated with these components.

Intelligent Motion™ eliminates the pitfalls of the friction drive

  • ‘Intelligent Motion’ drive system eliminates the need for the friction drive found on other printer applicator technology, delivering faster and more accurate labelling.
  • No creasing or label dropping and no chance for labels or fingers to become trapped in the system.

Solid state printhead delivers superior print accuracy

  • The solid state printhead mechanism allows the force of the printhead to be controlled electronically with great accuracy, for enhanced performance, print quality and extended head life.
  • Replacing the printhead is quick and easy, taking less than a minute, without tools required

Solid state ribbon drive

  • Unique to ICE machines, the solid state ribbon drive ensures consistent ribbon tension, no clutch, brakes or wear parts and effortless ribbon changeover

Easy integration with a small footprint

  • The Vulcan’s compact design makes it easy to fit in to existing packaging lines.
  • Print labels on any side of a pack and product wraparound labels on two sides, providing maximum flexibility in one machine
