Markem-Imaje Introduces Ethernet Protocol and Image Creation Capability to its 4700 Valvejet Printer

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., March 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ – Markem-Imaje, part of Dover (NYSE: DOV) and a global provider of end-to-end supply chain solutions and industrial marking and coding systems, today announced the introduction of an Ethernet protocol and image creation capability to provide greater connectivity to its 4700 Valvejet Drop-on-Demand Printer.

The 4700 is a low-maintenance printer that achieves accurate coding on surfaces including cardboard, plastic, glass, metal, PVC and wood.

These latest innovations further enhance the 4700’s support of efficient production lines, printing robust coding which remains readable, even in the most extreme conditions. Together with its large character Valvejet, the 4700 provides the foundations for optimal logistics and distribution.
