These coders are a great, long-lasting solution for applying date codes, lot numbers, and other product information onto porous surfaces. This can be a low cost alternative to automatic coding via Ink Jet systems. Print drums accommodate RIBtype rubber printing letters, numbers, and logo dies. (Call / Email for logo info).
The HP200NI is constructed out of precision machined, anodized aluminum components for a durable & lightweight device. The print area is 2" x 9.1", and the message repeats in 9.1" intervals so long as you're rolling this printer along a porous surface. The non-indexing means this printer wheel spins freely, without an indexing mechanism. Check out the indexing model if print placement matters.
Standard printer comes with the HP-100RM Porous Microcell Ink Roller dry. If you want the XF Neoprene ink roller, make sure to select it at the time of purchase. Click the support tab for inking instructions based on the roller you select.
IMPORTANT: Read these directions carefully before attempting to ink rolls.
Fill a container with coder ink to a level deep enough to completely submerge the roll. We recommend cutting off the bottom of an old two liter. Carefully place the roll into the container of ink. DO NOT ROTATE THE ROLL TO COAT THE ENTIRE SURFACE. Let the roll soak until it is completely submerged. It is very important that you do not rotate the roll once you have placed it in the ink container. If the surface of the roll is completely covered, it will not allow the air to escape out of the top surfaces and therefore proper inking will not be obtained.
WARNING: Non-Porous Inks contain flammable solvents. Do not smoke or handle these rolls in the presence of sparks or open flames. Inks will also stain clothing, furniture, carpeting and your hands. Rubber gloves should be worn during the following procedures.
A dry XF Neoprene ink roll has the same characteristics as a sponge with the capacity to absorb approximately 1 - 1.5 fluid ounces of ink. Please follow the guidelines below to properly pre-ink your roll
Installing an over-saturated ink roll on your coder will result in poor print quality and possible ink leakage problems.
