Coding and labelling specialist Clearmark Solutions recently launched the ICE Zodiac Eagle, a next generation 107mm thermal transfer printer, designed to deliver higher throughputs and support longer length 1200m ribbon for larger prints.
The ICE Zodiac Eagle, an evolution of the popular ICE Zodiac HS 107mm printer, now features an airless all electronic design, which allows for more precise control of the print-head and can help boost line throughput by up to 25 percent. Engineering out a requirement for compressed air also helps to reduce the printers total cost of ownership, by helping to reduce operation and maintenance costs.
The ICE Zodiac Eagle also features a full colour touchscreen, with the proven CLARiTY operating system. The system is fully modular allowing up to four printers to be operated from a single screen. Chris Simpson, Managing Technical Director at Clearmark comments: “The ICE Zodiac Eagle is the latest evolution in the growing Zodiac range. This printer has been specifically engineered to incorporate a series of breakthroughs in coding technology to help customers achieve larger prints with longer ribbon, which in turn helps to reduce frequency of changeover, while continuing to drive down total cost of ownership.”
The ICE Zodiac Eagle follows the successful launch of the ICE Zodiac Hawk, the only thermal transfer printer with a built-in print checking system. The ICE Zodiac Hawk is capable of reporting on the quality of each code it produces, largely removing the need to invest in costly add-on vision systems and operator training in order to meet increasing demand from retailers for code quality checks.
