Coding unit monitors print quality, even for variable print

The new Videojet DataFlex 6330 thermal transfer coder marks a variety of substrates at speeds up to 500 packs per minute for a typical two-line code using a standard transfer ribbon. The all-electric system provides more control of the printhead than units requiring compressed air, according to the company.

With iAssure software built in, and a sensor and light bar to inspect all codes through the impression left on the ribbon, the Videojet DataFlex 6330 is able to monitor code quality on-demand during printing for every code—including variable print. This ensures code accuracy, as well as quality. Click here to see a video clip of the unit in action at WestPack 2018.

On-board videos walk users through basic operations, like how to change or clean the printhead. And when outfitted with the cloud-based VideojetConnect Remote Service for remote diagnostics and repair, the coder can significantly reduce unplanned downtime to keep packaging lines running.

Thousands of Videojet printers are currently connected to this remote service, which tracks packaging line systems in real time using secure encryption technology designed for U.S. banks. Data can be displayed on display dashboards on the plant floor or accessed on mobile devices, giving production and maintenance managers a clear idea of system status.


This VideojetConnect Remote Service dashboard uses stoplight green-yellow-red colors to indicate the real-time status of all units on display at the company's WestPack 2018 booth.
