Minimal Footprint, Maximum Results
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 which eliminates 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, meaning you can print your cartons in the open or closed carton zone. At print speeds of up to 135 ft/minute, keep your production moving.
Keep Your Production Running
CoPilot Flex's 200ml ink cartridge contains nearly 5 times the amount of ink compared to many competitor's cartridges. The increased ink volume and convenient cartridge design result in less frequent changeover and reduced production downtime. Even better, Squid Ink's SI-PZ4200 solvent-based ink has been designed and tested for excellent adhesion properties on pulp, foam, and clear PET egg cartons while providing dark print that is easy to read.
