Integrating quality, efficiency and cost savings

Ideal for case or secondary coding, Anser’s U2 Diesel, U2 Smart and U2 Pro all offer zero-maintenance, drastically decreasing total cost of ownership. They are compact in size while offering 3.5” LCD screens, making them user friendly, easy to integrate and hassle-free for installation. 

Anser’s U2 family of coders offer high readable rates and print 1D and 2D barcodes including EAN 128, Code 128, Code 39, Datamatrix and QR codes. They also automatically identify and select the proper firing parameter to ensure the best print quality.

The U2 Diesel integrates quality, efficiency, and cost savings, while the U2 Smart offers exclusive ink selections for porous and non-porous applications. Its anti-shock mechanism eliminates unexpected damage to the printer thanks to its distinctive protective design, and its friendly UI and intelligent dashboard provide a simple user interface for easy operation. The intelligent dashboard design monitors the printer status and provides real-time system notifications. The U2 Pro features the world’s first solvent-compatible cartridge specially designed for secondary and tertiary package coding applications.
