Videojet Unveils Ink for Coding Wire, Cable, Extruded Products
By Raju Shanbhag, TMCnet Contributor
Videojet recently launched V491-C yellow ink for its 1710 printer model in the 1000 Line of continuous ink jet printers.
The company’s 1000 Line of continuous ink jet printers is designed to keep the production line up and running longer. They automate setup and cleaning in the most advanced ways, and make maintenance easier than ever.
All this adds up to more continuous productivity, apart from improved lifetime value than any other unit.
Videojet’s new V491-C yellow is specifically designed to stop ink code transfer when printing on extruded and spooled cable and wire. V491-C ink is particularly suited for cable printing and coding various extruded rubber products before entering the high-temperature vulcanization curing process.
With excellent readability on colored cable production lines, the V491-C yellow ink assists cable and wire manufacturers in assigning product qualifications and specifications. Here, yellow ink offers maximum contrast.
The ink can take contact, pressure and residual heat as freshly manufactured and coded cable or wire is spooled for storage and shipment, offering improved adhesion.
“Our customers in the wire and cable marking industry will benefit from a high-performing printer that is reliable, easy to maintain and is now complemented by yet another high-contrast pigment ink," said John Kirschner, Videojet supplies marketing director."With the introduction of the V491-C yellow ink, we're broadening the range of applications for the popular 1710 ink jet printer.”
In 2011, the company was recognized for its leadership and excellence among packaging machinery, materials and services suppliers by Packaging World magazine. Before voting for their favorite suppliers in the 2011 Leadership in Packaging Program, Summit Media Group, owner of Packaging World, invited packaging professionals to visit various “Leadership in Packaging” sites. Numerous votes were accepted from January to September, 2011.
