Squid Ink Manufacturing, Inc., a leading manufacturer of coding and marking systems for product identification and traceability, introduced the CoPilot Max printing system now with UV curing capability for non-porous applications.
With up to 2.8 inches of print height per printhead and the ability to run up to 2 printheads from one controller, the CoPilot Max reportedly offers a versatile yet cost-effective solution for a variety of product coding and marking applications.
Initially released in October 2019 with oil-based ink capability, the CoPilot Max has the capability to run solvent-based inks, and now UV LED cure inks, allowing users the ability to print on coated corrugate, polystyrene, films, and a number of other non-porous surfaces.
UV-based ink could be ideal for users looking to replace expensive labels and print directly on glossy cartons, cases, trays, or other materials without the high maintenance characteristics of solvent-based inks.
The CoPilot Max reportedly utilizes Squid Ink’s revolutionary active ink system, allowing users the ability to raise, lower, tilt, or rotate the printhead without making height adjustments to the ink supply. The system prints hi-resolution characters, razor-sharp text, scannable bar codes, and great looking logos at up to 360 dpi, nearly twice the resolution of competitive printers in its class.
