Videojet 1860 CIJ gets a Scan2Run functionality upgrade

Optional function for Videojet 1860 CIJ printer

Videojet has introduced optional Scan2Run functionality for the Videojet 1860 continuous inkjet (CIJ) printer.

Videojet Technologies, a specialist in coding, marking and printing solutions, has introduced an optional Scan2Run functionality for the Videojet 1860 continuous inkjet (CIJ) printer.

According to the company, the new feature offers minimal manual intervention, helping to reduce operator-induced coding errors. Previous Videojet surveys have shown that up to 7% of coding errors are caused by operators, with the most common mistakes being incorrect data entry and job selection.

Anthony Blencowe, global business unit director at Videojet said, “The predictive capabilities of the 1860 printer, along with the new optional Scan2Run functionality, enables manufacturers to increase productivity and reduce coding errors.”

With optional Scan2Run functionality, the enhanced 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.

Scan2Run functionality can help 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. The hand-held barcode scanner is attached directly to the printer and can also be purchased from Videojet.

“With its integrated on-board intelligence and communication capabilities, the 1860 printer delivers superior uptime, and offers predictability and productivity for manufacturers today, tomorrow and in the future,” added Blencowe.
