Copilot Flex Printing System for Egg Carton Printing: Squid Ink

Squid Ink Manufacturing, Inc., recently introduced the new CoPilot® Flex Inkjet Printing System.  Squid Ink’s CoPilot Flex printing system is designed to print superior quality hi-resolution characters, razor-sharp text, real-time information, scannable bar codes and great looking logos on pulp, foam, or PET egg cartons.

CoPilot Flex is engineered for simple integration on existing egg packing lines. The system’s compact design allows for narrow mounting in nearly every zone of an egg packing process, eliminating the need for after-market engineering or modifications to conveyors. CoPilot Flex’s small printhead is designed to adjust to match the slope of the egg carton and is capable of inverting the user’s message, meaning the CoPilot Flex can print on the end of the carton in the open or closed carton zone. The system also features a convenient 200ml snap-in ink cartridge for quicker fluids changeover.

A 4.3” full-color touchscreen provides access to the system’s internal messages and print functions. Messages are created and edited on Squid Ink’s Orion™ PC software and transferred via USB, Ethernet, wireless, or optional Windows® tablet. For multiple print locations, an unlimited number of CoPilot Flex printing systems can be connected via Ethernet or wireless network and controlled through one central Orion PC.
