Scorpion tij-mek ink coding on hard to code surfaces

ICE Scorpion

Ideal For: Hard to code surfaces

The ICE Scorpion thermal inkjet printer technology represents a significant advancement from the existing thermal inkjet printers on the market. It introduces a Cartridge Readiness System™ – a high-speed shutter system that prevents ink from drying in the nozzle during production interruptions. This unique system eliminates problems associated with poor print quality resulting from line interruptions, ensuring that the code printed is always clean and high quality even after a long stoppage.

High speed, versatile coder designed to print where other inkjets fail

The rugged, industrial design is made to withstand challenging production environments and print on difficult surfaces. It’s simple to use with cartridge changeover taking less than 15 seconds and an intuitive colour touchscreen interface for easy job selection and diagnostics. The ICE Scorpion has no wear parts, or compressed air and prints linearly at speeds of up to 102 metres per minute, guaranteeing a fast return on investment.

Substrate versatility

Due to the ICE Scorpion’s high-performance MEK ink, it is able to code on films, foils, plastics and coated stocks in high resolution. It can drive two independent printheads utilising a purpose-built inkjet cartridge that delivers print resolutions up to four times greater than continuous inkjet solutions.

The ICE Scorpion can print either simple text or more complex barcodes, graphics and logos for a range of applications including those in the packaged food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. Ultimately offering industrial printing with exceptional simplicity to keep production moving.
