Flexo printer

A new printing system suited for medical device applications, the Micromax/HP (MMP/HP) flexo-printing system with a traversing Hewlett-Packard ink-jet cartridge produces high-quality, in-line printing in up to four colors. As an alternative to rotary flexo printers, the MMP/HP is designed to provide the flexibility of ink-jet printing variable information, including expiration dates, lot numbers, bar codes and product data, using the thermal ink-jet cartridge. This means elimination of the need to insert slugs into a plate for each new date or number. To give this traversing flexibility to a traditional rotary flexo machine, a stepper motor would be needed. Combining the two functions, the co. piggybacks the cartridge on the existing traversing mechanism of the Micromax.
