Squid Ink CoPilot Flex
CoPilot Flex is engineered for simple integration on your existing egg packing line or wherever space constraints are an issue. The system’s unique and compact design allows for narrow mounting in nearly every zone of your egg packing process, eliminating the need for after-market engineering or time-consuming modifications to your existing conveyor. CoPilot Flex’s small printhead adjusts to match the slope of the carton to ensure a quality hi-resolution print. The system is capable of inverting your printed message, if needed, meaning you can print your cartons in the open or closed carton zone. At print speeds of up to 135 ft/minute, the CoPilot Flex is sure to keep your production moving.
Squid UV LED Curing System
Squid UV is capable of curing inks in a 20mm x 80mm area from a single illumination module that can be doubled to cure an area of 40mm x 80mm or 20mm x 160mm with the addition of a second system. The system features an advanced LED module to provide consistent luminance, resulting in a reliably cured product, every time. The stability of UV LED technology makes the output of electricity predictable and stable, avoiding problems associated with conventional halogen heat lamp drying.
UV LED technology provides a stable and efficient way of curing CIJ, Piezo, and Thermal inkjet inks. The integrated super cooling system considerably lowers the unit’s operating temperature to extend the life of the machinery while reducing maintenance costs. The use of UV LED curing results in a significant savings in power reduction, and time and money spent replacing lamps becomes obsolete due to the 20,000+ hour illumination runtime. For comparison, Squid UV curing systems use about 75% less energy than typical UV arc lamp curing.
