Markem-Imaje Launches Advanced Printers to Address Challenging Coding

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., July 24, 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 launch of its new 9750 Expert Series continuous inkjet (CIJ) coders.

The 9750 Expert Series of CIJ coders brings three new products to market that cost-effectively deliver peak results for fast-moving consumer goods and electronics manufacturers, even in high humidity and dusty conditions and on ultra-fast lines. With greater traceability and transparency, it improves results in adverse conditions that usually hinder the achievement of the required legibility and durability to produce today’s internationally compliant codes. The 9750 Expert Series also excels in boosting uptime when compared to nearly all other CIJ printing machines, with line speeds of up to 120,000 units per hour.

Printing three lines of text on small, solid surfaces such as phone batteries, RAM chips and other electronic components, as well as more pliant surfaces like medication tubes, is now easier than ever with the 9750 Expert HD+ model. It delivers high-quality, vision camera-readable GS1 Digital Links and QR codes as small as 5mm high (ISO 29158). The GS1 Digital Link is a relatively new option whereby a single QR code gives different information to various users, depending on the application used to scan it.

Improved sustainability is also at the heart of the 9750 Expert Series’ design. The use of MEK-free inks enables the reduction of consumables and volatile organic compound (VOCs) emissions by up to 50% in standard mode and up to 60% in consumable-saving mode – the highest industry reduction levels achieved to date. The coders’ sustainable design also ensures less equipment is sent to landfill by allowing the swap of individual parts, rather than entire ink circuit blocks.

“We’re proud that Markem-Imaje is one of the first – and currently only – CIJ suppliers offering coders that reduce VOCs emissions even when using MEK inks,” says Guillaume Montagnat, Product Marketing Manager at Markem-Imaje. “In consumable-saving mode, all 9750 Expert Series printers generate up to 35% fewer VOCs emissions.”
