Allen Coding has announced the addition of Hitachi’s new UX inkjet printer series to its growing portfolio of high performance marking and coding equipment for the food, beverage, pharmaceutical, chemical, DIY and cosmetic and toiletries sectors. This latest system has been designed for ease of use and maintenance combined with improved environmental considerations and is ideal for printing on to drinks containers such as milk or juice cartons.

Available in three models – Basic Entry Level, Flexible Standard and Premium – it also features a new cartridge-type system, which makes ink replacement clean and simple.   The ink and make-up cartridge bottles can be used right up until the last drop which prevents wastage and eliminates the need to dispose of them separately.

A new, modern user interface with full colour, 10.4 inch touch screen panel and icon-based graphics indicate ink levels as well as the correct time to replace cartridges.  The ability to check the finished image on the screen before going ahead with printing helps to avoid errors and saves on wastage.

Brand new print technology is incorporated into the Premium model allowing up to six lines of printing from the single print head.  High-speed single line printing of excellent quality is also possible.

Ethernet as standard saves wiring, while strengthened network compatibility allows easier system construction, and collective management via the host system enables two or more devices to be networked easily.

An ergonomically-designed print head with four-metre cable is ideal for printing on containers such as milk and juice cartons.

Allen Coding’s new Hitachi UX inkjet prints at a maximum rate of up to 1148 characters per second for the Basic and Standard models with the option to upgrade the latter to 2296 characters. The Premium unit offers up to 2296 as standard.

Bar codes, 2D code printing and the ability to store between 150 and 2000 messages are also features of the new product range.

The printer’s cabinet is IP65 rated for dusty environments.  It can be washed down when necessary making it suitable for applications in the likes of the meat and dairy industries.  It may also be used in temperatures ranging from 0 to 50ᵒC. For further information visit www.allencoding.com.
