Markem-Imaje (MI), the global provider of end-to-end supply chain solutions and industrial marking and coding systems, has introduced an ethernet protocol to provide greater connectivity to their 4700 Valvejet drop-on-demand (DOD) printer.
Now allowing for up to 20 variable updates per print, the enhanced 4700 supports customer needs for customization and flexibility, even in the most challenging manufacturing environments.
Further upgrading the 4700 is the introduction of image creation and printer management capability, achievable via a new driver with MI’s CoLOS suite. MI’s packaging intelligence solution CoLOS helps optimize production to maximize uptime and ensures that packaging and coding solutions are accurate and traceable while also streamlining all printing needs from one supplier.
These latest innovations further enhance the 4700’s support of efficient production lines, printing robust coding, that remains readable, evenin extremee conditions. Together with its large character Valvejet, the 4700 provides the foundations for optimal logistics and distribution. The 4700 delivers best-in-class safety compliance, meeting the international safety standard IEC 62368-1.
Greg Kasprzak, marketing team leader, MI, said, “At the core of our mission at MI is to listen to our customers and innovate to help them address the complex challenges of today’s operating environment. The 4700 has been a high-performing staple in our DOD portfolio, and with these upgrades, we are improving connectivity to offer more flexibility and introducing, for the first time, image creation and printer management capability.”
A low fuss and low maintenance option, the 4700 achieves accurate coding on surfaces as diverse as cardboard, plastic, glass, metal, PVC, and wood. It is perfect for low-resolution text and logo options.
