Needham Coding Launches S Series Drop on Demand Inkjet Printers

Reinforcing its commitment to an ambitious growth strategy, Needham Coding – part of The Needham Group – has launched the ‘S’ series of drop-on-demand inkjet printers. The new range has been specially developed to offer high resolution, large character printing for secondary packaging applications within the food and beverage industry.

Needham Coding has introduced the ‘S’ series of drop-on-demand inkjet printers to complement the Sauven Marking ink business which its sister company, Needham Inks, acquired in 2015.

The new Needham Coding ‘S’ series is ideal for secondary packaging applications, including product, carton, box and web printing. All three models in the range offer excellent print quality and a range of market leading features.

Depending on the model, the ‘S’ series printer is capable of printing up to eight lines of text per print head, 17mm maximum total print height per print head and up to 100m/min print speed.

Aled Ellis, Managing Director at Needham Coding, comments: “We had a gap in our portfolio for an own-brand range of drop-on-demand inkjet printers that would complement the Sauven ink business that we purchased a few years ago.  Following discussions with existing users of Sauven printers it was evident that they required like-for-like inkjet technology. As a result, the new ‘S’ series is a low cost, simple inkjet printing solution backed by our dedicated service and support team and offering access to a wide range of consumables including fast drying solvent based inks and oil based inks for use on porous substances like card and paper.”

The ‘S’ series offers high resolution printing combined with the ability to import font styles and graphics to enhance product image. Printing directly onto cartons, sacks, trays and other porous surfaces saves time and costs by eliminating pre-printing or expensive labels.

Printing with micro ink droplets and a sealed ink cartridge ensures low cost per print with no ink wastage. Additional cost savings can be obtained using the economy print type font.

Needham Coding’s ‘S’ series has been designed with minimal components to give maximum reliability. There are no pumps, valves or compressed air and the use of just a single PCB ensures minimum maintenance requirements. There is the option to select from three different levels of message programming and editing from the very simple and basic to multi-functional.

The S-6000 model can be used as a simple standalone, easy to use printer or alternatively integrated into a full production network system. The S-6000R Plus Remote is available with manual or motorised 17mm print heads and best suited to product coding and best before dates. It can be used with oil ink for absorbent surfaces or solvent ink for non-absorbent surfaces. The model with motorised print head will continue printing after production breaks without operator intervention and is suitable for dusty environments.

The S-6000 Plus is aimed at box coding and available as Standard or Duo options with the latter capable of printing up to 34mm text and bar codes.

The S-1000 is a modular inkjet system which allows the operator to connect up to four units together with an S-1000 controller to suit individual requirements. The S-1000 controller can be located up to ten metres from the S-1000 print heads and is ideal when print heads are in an inaccessible position.
