Videojet IP DataFlex Plus Thermal Transfer Overprinter

Thermal Transfer Printers for washdown applications

The Videojet IP-rated DataFlex Plus Thermal Transfer Overprinter is ideal for flexible film coding applications where the line undergoes washdown after production is complete. The IP-rated DataFlex can remain in place during washdown therefore minimizing preparation time and allowing maximum operator utilization.

Protection in harsh environments:
  • IP65 protection shortens washdown preparation time
  • No need to remove the printer or cover it with a bag saving time and reducing alignment problems
Enables consistent high quality print and coding flexibility:
  • 300 dpi print resolution assures high quality codes
  • Patented software controlled ribbon drive allows complete control over ribbon movement and tension
  • Real-time variable data makes a variety of applications possible
  • Prints codes up to 53 mm (2.09 in) wide at speeds up to 400 packs/min
Simple Usability limits operator interaction reducing potential for errors:
  • Intuitive CLARiTY™ 8.4 inch color touchscreen makes set-ups fast and easy with fewer errors
  • Variable date and time fields are automatically updated eliminating the time and effort spent changing stamps
  • Ribbon cassette ensures replacement is fast and easy, compared to having to thread ribbon through the coder
  • Optional Master/Follower functionality allows up to 4 printers to be controlled from a single DataFlex® Plus controller
Uptime Advantage reduces downtime, saving both production time and money:
  • Ribbon tension is consistently maintained through a highly reliable clutchless drive to eliminate ribbon-related downtime
  • Intermittent and continuous printing in the same machine accommodates future packaging equipment upgrades
  • 1200 m (3937 ft) ribbon length and 0.5 mm (0.020 in) print gap means less frequent ribbon changes than mechanical stamping systems
  • Innovative ribbon saving features like interleaving and radial printing can double ribbon utilization, saving money and increasing time between ribbon replacement
Code Assurance helps eliminate costly coding errors:
  • Advanced coder software virtually eliminates code set-up errors
  • CLARiSOFT® code design software prevents incorrect printed dates, missed codes and costly production rework
