Markem-Imaje widens print capabilities with new SmartDate® X60/128

22 December 2014

The robust, reliable printer offers customers dependable new coding options, combining the versatile power of Markem-Imaje SmartDate technology with a wider printing area.

Markem-Imaje has announced the introduction of the SmartDate X60/128 thermal transfer printer capable of printing up to 128 mm maximum width to accommodate large messages. It has been designed to deliver consistently high quality printing of nutritional labels, ingredients or multi-pack applications especially for food packagers worldwide.

“The SmartDate X60/128 represents a significant advance on previous technology, one that will offer clear benefits to customers,” according to Rajiv Narayan, Product Manager for the Markem-Imaje thermal transfer line. “In recent years the Markem-Imaje SmartDate X60 has improved performance on scores of productions lines around the globe. The new SmartDate X60/128 maintains the reliability of the previous SmartDate 5/128, while benefiting from a number of upgrades, particularly in its firmware. For instance, it offers dead-dot detection to avoid failed dots on the line, and image adjustment directly on the interface, without need of a laptop computer to make changes.” The SmartDate X60/128 is also faster than previous models, capable of line speeds up to 700 mm/per second.

Coding customers can count on
The SmartDate X60/128 has been designed to apply to a wide variety of production line scenarios, with features including:
Multi-code capability for printing multiple codes on multi-lane packaging lines.
An easy-to-use, intuitive touch screen with USB connectivity for quick changes to codes or ingredients.
Ability to accommodate a variety of ribbon lengths, up to 900 meters in select grades to reduce the changeovers that can impede uptime.
All backed by an extended printhead warranty.

The SmartDate X60/128 is housed in a durable casing with the same footprint as the SmartDate 5/128 for easy changeover. The printer’s robust design includes no wear parts, which means there’s no need for preventive maintenance.
