The MLi-TE provides cost-effective, high-speed multi-lane, multi-line features, with up to twelve print heads integrated on one common platform, and prints multiple lanes simultaneously and quickly.
The system was designed to combine speed with reduced maintenance and enhanced flexibility compared to alternative technologies at a similar price point.
High-resolution (300 dpi) printing of static and dynamic information such as product identification information, date/lot/batch codes and company logos can be quickly added to packages such as sachets and stick packs for a wide variety of applications including food, beverage, pharmaceutical (blister packages) and medical (syringes, sutures, IV bags, catheters).
Each print head can print at speeds up to 70 mm/s, with multiple print heads handling multiple lanes simultaneously at this speed.
Allen Coding said the MLi-TE is up to three times less expensive than digital print systems and comparably priced with Traversing CIJ and Traversing TTO technologies but offers significantly reduced maintenance compared to all three alternative technologies.
The unit has a small-footprint design with minimal interface cabling ensures quick and simplified integration into vertical form fill seal (VFFS) and horizontal form fill seal (HFFS) machines including horizontal flow-wrappers, sachet machines, blister pack machines, four side seal machines and thermoform fill and seal machines.
