Opening doors for label printing with Open Date Equipment
Open Date Equipment's new Thermocode iQ thermal transfer printer is said to offer a breakthrough in print quality, plus a high level of sustainable performance.
The iQ features a print speed of 600mm per second and a maximum print area of 53x110mm. Operation is controlled via a 7-inch touchscreen, from which stored print images can be edited and print settings adjusted during use. Print images and programme updates can be downloaded via the printer's USB port. On-board memory is 8MB.
Speaking at the launch last month, Open Date UK chief executive Gary Cowlard said: "The iQ uses no compressed air to operate the print head, which is electronically driven by three stepper motors. These can be very accurately controlled, allowing more print cycles per minute (currently up to 800) as well as better quality and consistency."
