ICE Zodiac HS

Trusted by the industry for 20 years the ICE Zodiac HS remains consistently reliable and effective. Designed and developed in Nottinghamshire, the Zodiac HS features a solid state ribbon drive, 1,200 metre ribbon capacity and ribbon save modes which have become the gold standard of thermal transfer printing.

After producing and selling the original Zodiac HS in parallel with our new Zodiac Hawk since 2017, we have decided to phase out the production of our Zodiac HS. We will however continue to support these in the field until further notice.

Introducing the ICE Zodiac Hawk

Replacing the ICE Zodiac HS, the Hawk can seamlessly integrate onto your existing production line. In most cases, the Hawk can mount onto the same frames of your packaging machinery that the HS does and also uses the same software meaning original configurations can be easily transferred. Furthermore, The Hawk uses the same ribbon as the HS, so any existing ribbon stock that you have will not go to waste.

Features and benefits
  • The world’s first thermal transfer overprinter that checks its own print quality using iAssure technology
  • New airless design, removing the need for expensive compressed air
  • 1200m ribbon capacity, resulting in less downtime for ribbon replacement
  • Full OEE reporting, including OEE data extraction
  • Print speeds of up to 500 packs per minute

iAssure™ for the Hawk

iAssure™ is a built-in code quality checker that requires no additional hardware, installation or training, reducing waste and rework. It provides early warning of any potential loss of code quality, reducing the risk of customer complaints or the possibility of a product recall, with its cost implications and potential damage to brand reputation.

Operators can easily measure production quality on the CLARiTY screen and can view the prints in real-time to assess print quality and drive improvements.
