The I-Mark™ V84i is an OEM version of the co.'s newest drop-on-demand ink-jet printing controller. Minimal software development is required to integrate the controller, thanks to a simplified communications protocol. Machine builders can use the same touchscreen interfaces, power supplies, PLCs and other hardware with the V84i as they do with the base machine. The system is said to be ideal for printing 4 to 5 lines of text, graphics/logos and bar codes ranging from 3/32in. to 5 in. high, at line speeds up to 786 fpm.
