Amongst the systems on display will be the company’s compact, lightweight and affordable ICON 2 small character laser coder. The ideal laser solution for most packaging applications, it offers superb performance, usability and reliability at high speeds, as well as increased environmental benefits and lower running costs. Macsa’s idTIJ small character thermal inkjet printer will also be on display.

Macsa’s cost-effective ICON 2 offers permanent, consistent and durable marking in a clean, usable and sustainable design, making it particularly ideal for first-time laser users in the packaging industry.

For major environmental advantages, the low maintenance ICON 2 laser coder offers a clean, energy-efficient design. It does not need consumables so there are no messy ink deposits or noxious solvent emissions, and better filters help keep the laser and electronics cool and clean.

Macsa’s ICON 2 is capable of marking on most substrates including labels, cartons, plastics, glass, wood and textiles. It can print both linear and 2D barcodes and static barcoding is available as standard whilst dynamic barcoding is optional.

An external colour touch screen with intuitive interface enables simple navigation, ease of programming and excellent functionality, especially where the ICON 2 is installed in difficult to reach areas.

It uses high-performance optics, powerful hardware and advanced, low overhead software to enable its core laser to meet the speeds of most production lines. Meanwhile, it’s compact, lightweight design means it can be easily installed in places where space is limited.

With proprietary marking software and intuitive, user-friendly design, Macsa’s idTIJ is its first-ever thermal inkjet coder aimed at fast, high-resolution printing applications in the food, pharmaceutical, personal care and beverage industries.

A series of key features combine to make it one of the best TIJ options on the market. The machine’s innovative design also ensures flexible and easy integration into existing production lines with maximum uptime.

Utilising Macsa’s powerful marking software, the idTIJ offers accurate and consistent reproduction of barcodes, alphanumeric texts, 2d data matrix codes, dates, logos and graphics on to virtually any porous and non-porous surface, including cardboard, blister packs and PE and HDPE plastics.

Macsa’s idTIJ is compact, reliable and exceptionally simple to use.  It incorporates an intuitive 10” colour touch screen which has been specially developed to facilitate easy installation, operation and maintenance, as well as improve overall user experience.

For maximum production efficiencies, the idTIJ is capable of high-speed printing up to 150 m / min and 600 dpi. It offers high quality and fast drying print with excellent adhesion on a diverse range of materials.
