The new Thermocode iQ² thermal transfer printer answers the coding needs of packaging operations with high quality prints at top speeds.
To debut at EastPack 2019 (June 16-18; New York), the Open Date system creates 300-dots-per-inch codes at speeds of 600 prints per minute or more when printing one line of variable text. The Thermocode iQ² maintains speeds of 450 prints per minute when printing two lines of variable text along with a bar code, specifically a GS1 DataBar linear bar code or a two-dimensional GS1 Data Matrix code or stacked code.
The iQ² holds up to 300 megabytes and stored codes can be easily uploaded via a network card or the USB drive. Users can adjust printer settings via the 7-inch color touchscreen, even while the printer is running. The controller also signals printer status, including speed and remaining ribbon.
Able to integrate with most intermittent-motion labeling and other packaging machinery, the iQ² prints on labels, films, foils, cartons and cards for pharmaceutical and other applications.
