New coders set to make a splash.

New water resistant coding equipment is set to help fresh produce, snack and other food manufacturers keep production lines clean and safe with less risk of water damage to critical equipment, according to coding and marking specialist Markem-Imaje.

Specifically designed to meet the requirements of companies handling poultry, meat, fruit, salad and vegetables as well as fresh sandwiches that are subject to rigorous food hygiene and safety standards, the new SmartDate X40-IP thermal transfer coder has been engineered to withstand the water ingress that can result from frequent wash-down cleaning routines or humid environments.

The SmartDate X40-IP is made from stainless steel with sealed ports to protect all electronic parts from water damage; the user friendly design means wash-downs can take place without removing connecting cables, minimising cleaning preparation time, whilst an integrated user guide makes the process quick and simple.

Available as a series of kits providing protection to either the printer or the controller or both units, the SmartDate X40-IP kits are easily installed and can be retrofitted to any SmartDate X40 already in use.

Based upon the proven SmartDate Series, the new X40-IP features an intelligent printhead capable of printing high contrast codes at pack speeds of up to 600mm per second at 300dpi; and with the option of an extended 1,100m ribbon will cut downtime and reduce waste.
