Squid Ink Introduces new Copilot® Max 360DPI Printer with Active Ink System

Squid Ink Manufacturing, Inc. introduces the CoPilot Max printing system designed to print superior quality hi-resolution characters on porous surfaces. With up to 2.8” of print height per printhead and the ability to run up to two printheads from one controller, the CoPilot Max offers a versatile, yet cost-effective solution for coding and marking applications.

The CoPilot Max 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 360 dpi. Squid Ink’s library of inks for porous substrates offers ultra-low maintenance performance, eliminating the need for auto-priming functions and offering better ink utilization than competitive systems.

The printer features a durable touchscreen, industrial strength printhead construction, and simple active ink delivery. The CoPilot Max also features a large 500ml no-mess snap-in cartridge, allowing users the ability to swap ink cartridges in a matter of seconds. The generous ink volume, quick-change ink cartridge, and user-friendly touchscreen design allow users to keep their line running, reducing downtime and maximizing ROI.

The CoPilot Max features a full color touchscreen that allows users to access to the system’s internal messages and print functions. Messages are created and edited on Squid Ink’s easy-to-use Orion PC Software and transferred via USB, ethernet, wireless, or optional Windows® tablet. The tablet is ideal for users who want message creation and editing functionality on the production floor. For larger applications, an unlimited number of CoPilot Max printing systems can be connected via ethernet or wireless network and controlled through one central Orion PC.
