VideoJet’s Scan2Run feature expands printer capabilities
Videojet Technologies, a coding, marking and printing solutions provider, has introduced an optional Scan2Run functionality for its Videojet 1860 continuous inkjet (CIJ) printer.
The new feature removes human error from the print job set-up process, which can cause up to 70% of coding errors, by eliminating the need to manually type in data. With the Scan2Run function, operators call up stored jobs on a printer simply by scanning a pre-defined barcode on a job sheet
The Scan2Run functionality can be purchased either with the 1860 printer, or post installation. The handheld barcode scanner is attached directly to the printer and can also be purchased from Videojet.
This new optional feature is designed to provide a smarter way to print. With its integrated on-board intelligence and communication capabilities, the 1860 printer delivers reduced downtime, and offers predictability and productivity for manufacturers.
Anthony Blencowe, global business unit director at Videojet said: “The predictive capabilities of the 1860 printer, along with the new optional Scan2Run functionality, enables manufacturers to increase productivity and reduce coding errors.”
