Squid Ink Unveils New Printing System
Squid Ink Manufacturing, Inc., a leading manufacturer of superior quality inks and ink jet printing equipment,
introduces the new PZ Pilot Pro(r) hi-resolution ink jet printing system. The PZ Pilot Pro is an affordable new
solution for printing high quality bar codes and other product information directly on corrugated cases and other
products. With up to 2.1" of print height per head and the ability to run up to four printheads from one controller,
the PZ Pilot Pro offers a versatile, yet cost-effective solution for a variety of coding applications.
The PZ Pilot Pro utilizes the Omnidot(r) 380 engine manufactured by Xaar(r) Corporation. The engine offers
superior print quality, a large droplet size, and the durability required of industrial applications. In addition, PZ
Pilot Pro uses Xaar-approved inks specifically designed to run in the Omnidot 380 engine.
With up to 2.1" of print height per head, the PZ Pilot Pro exceeds the 2.0" GS1 specification for case code
printing, without the additional cost of a larger print engine. Larger print engines, such as a 2.5" or 2.8" engine
cost more to begin with, cost more to replace, and utilize significantly more ink. Squid Ink's PZ Pilot Pro offers
the right-size print engine for the application.
The PZ Pilot Pro is designed with several low maintenance features that users have come to rely on from Squid
Ink. PZ Pilot Pro features ATM-simple, easy to follow user prompts to program, save, and store messages.
In addition, the built-in software automatically calculates ink usage for each message so you can modify your
messages and control your consumable costs as needed. The system also comes with auto configuration
software that is written to simplify setup of printing. The system can automatically calculate product speed,
making printing on your products easier while providing consistent print quality.
The PZ Pilot Pro is designed to meet the harsh demands of industrial applications. Stainless steel cabinetry, a
durable touchscreen keypad and stainless steel printhead allow the PZ Pilot Pro to operate in the most extreme
factory environments. PZ Pilot Pro's rugged stainless steel design will withstand the most abusive industrial
environments while providing superior quality print.
The PZ PILOT PRO is available now through Squid Ink's worldwide network of sales representatives and resellers.
