Thermal transfer overprinter

The Videojet DataFlex Plus thermal-transfer overprinter for flexible packaging prints up to 40 ips (1,000 mm), or 425 packages/ min, depending on ribbon width and application.

The overprinter can display and print Arabic characters, with font support from Windows TrueType. And it supports 19 languages, including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Turkish. The bidirectional ribbon drive recaptures unused ribbon after each print, maintaining a 1-mm gap between prints for the length of the ribbon. The 8.4-in SVGA and color touchscreen have icon-based controls. The job display features preview zoom to reduce operator error. The device can change between intermittent and continuous modes, in right or left-hand operation. Serial, Ethernet, and USB communications are standard. The controller can manage up to four printers.
