Errors reduced with inkjet coder option

Coding errors are said to be reduced with a new optional feature offered on Videojet Technologies’ 1860 continuous inkjet (CIJ) printer.

The supplier of coding, marking and printing systems is now offering Scan2Run functionality for the Videojet 1860 as an option. It provides minimal manual intervention, helping to reduce operator-induced coding errors.

Surveys conducted by Videojet have shown that up to 70 per cent of coding errors are caused by operator error, with the most common mistakes being incorrect data entry and incorrect job selection.

Using Scan2Run, the 1860 CIJ printer can remove human error from the print job set-up process by allowing operators to call up stored jobs on a printer simply by scanning a pre-defined barcode on a job sheet. It helps to ensure that the correct code is selected and ready to be printed, and can be purchased either with the 1860 printer, or post installation.
