Porous Conveyor Line Printers

Printing the same information on your cartons but need an alternative solutions to the expensive ink jet systems?

(Pictured with the Optional Reservoir Roll Cover)

Universal Conveyor Line Printers: The CLP Coders feature the largest print areas of any of our contact roll coders for printing on porous surfaces and are available in 4 different print widths, all featuring 18.0" Circumference Print Drums.

These machines are designed for extreme durability in high volume production printing applications. Optional Reservoir Roll Covers accept our patented 4 Oz. Disposable Ink Cartridges which feed ink to the Ink Rolls automatically during production.

Indexing models utilize dual compression springs, mounted over stainless steel guide shafts to provide the fastest and most durable print drum indexing system on the market today.

Non-Indexing models have print drums which rotate freely on sealed ball bearings and print at random starting positions on cartons. These models are normally recommended for high speed conveyor lines where little or no space exists between cartons. In these applications, the print drum always remains in contact with a carton surface and the code information is printed at an interval equal to the print drum circumference (18.0"). Print repeat intervals can be reduced by installing multiple sets of dies on the print drum.

Optional Reservoir Inking System Cover - Call for details.

Indexing Models have print drums which return to the index position after printing each carton. This typically requires approximately 6" of space between cartons at 60 feet per minute conveyor speed and proportionally more space between cartons at higher speeds. The indexing feature enables the code to be applied to each carton at a registered position relative to the leading edge of the carton.

Replacement Ink Rollers:

MICROCELL ink rolls are the most durable rolls available on the market today. This material is an extremely tough, hard density urethane foam which will last up to a year or more under normal conditions. It is recommended for use with Universal #1150 Ink or equivalent for printing on corrugated cartons and other porous surface materials. These rolls are re-inkable for maximum economy.

Replacement Microcell Porous (DRY):

1 1/8" CLP Ink Roller Item #108C-CLPMC1 
2" CLP Ink Roller Item #108C-CLPMC2 
3" CLP Ink Roller Item #108C-CLPMC3 
4" CLP Ink Roller Item #108C-CLPMC4 

______________________________________________________________

XF NEOPRENE ink rolls are made from extra firm density foam. Although not quite as durable as Microcell, XF Neoprene rolls offer slightly higher print quality and are recommended where 3 or 4 lines of type are required. These rolls can be used with Universal #1150 Ink for porous applications. These rolls are re-inkable for maximum economy.

Replacement XF Neoprene Porous (DRY):

1 1/8" CLP XF Ink Roller Item #108C-CLPXC1 
2" CLP XF Ink Roller Item #108C-CLPXC2 
3" CLP XF Ink Roller Item #108C-CLPXC3 
4" CLP XF Ink Roller Item #108C-CLPXC4 

______________________________________________________________

NEOPRENE ink rolls are made from soft density foam material. Because this material has a larger cell structure, it is highly recommended for use with Pigmented Inks for carton printing on porous materials. Although this material is not as durable as XF Neoprene, it provides an acceptable print quality when a lighter touch is required. These rolls are re-inkable for maximum economy.

Replacement Porous Neoprene (Dry):

1 1/8" CLP Ink Roller Item #108C-CLPFC1 
2" CLP Ink Roller Item #108C-CLPFC2 
3" CLP Ink Roller Item #108C-CLPFC3 
4" CLP Ink Roller Item #108C-CLPFC4
