A long-term coding solution

Starting and growing a business are both crucial times for any company. Changes in production type, rate and even packaging formats can make things logistically challenging. The 9330 inkjet coder from Markem-Imaje, locally represented by Pyrotec PackMark, supports manufacturers from the first line of code and adapts as production scales up.
A long-term coding solution
Challenges frequently experienced by manufacturers include finding a cost-effective marking solution that evolves as capacity increases, purchasing easy to install equipment that can be managed in-house, and ensuring quality codes even after long storage periods.

The 9330 inkjet coder overcomes these challenges thanks to its design for low to medium duty applications, and its cost-efficient versatility and ability to scale up as demand increases.

Key benefits include its modular Intelli’Swap design that makes changing the all-in-one M6’ ink circuit easy, its specially developed Intelli’Ink portfolio that ensures optimal coder performance and flexibility when coding different packaging materials, and its automatic cleaning system coupled with the Intelli’Jet technology that provides clean, hassle free startups and quality codes, every time.

The 9330’s standard IP55 rated fully stainless steel design and compact size makes it easy to install and move wherever needed. What’s more, uptime is increased because startups are fast and simple with its automatic printhead cleaning system.

The 9330’s Smart Consumable system is automatic, clean and secure, limiting human intervention and mistakes, and fast navigation and message creation is done via a tactile user interface. It also offers more than 8,000 hours of non-stop production – based on recommended preventative maintenance prodedures – thanks to its all-in-one M6’ ink circuit that requires just six minutes to change.

Other benefits include:
  • Ensured reliability and consistent print quality, regardless of production conditions, thanks to Markem-Imaje’s Intelli’Jet technology
  • Expenses are reduced, with up to 50% consumable savings (operating at 20°C), compared to competitive models, thanks to the 9330’s latest generation hydraulic system
  • Flexibility is maximised with a wide ink portfolio that allows coding on several packaging types
  • Extended connectivity and multi-message management is straightforward, ensuring easy production plan management

A vast array of inks are available for the 9330, including those that pose no import or export issues, options that offer high-level water resistance, safety and low odour, high durability, clearly visible codes that withstand pasteurisation and alcohol, low VOCs for the food sector, fast-drying inks and a solution dedicated to coding on glass.

Connectivity options allow the 9330 to be connected to other Markem-Imaje equipment and centralised management via CoLOS.
