9450 S by Markem-Imaje: A fast, versatile and secure coding solution for the beverage industry

Markem-Imaje launches its 9450 S, a new inkjet solution for the beverage industry designed to meet the sector’s demanding constraints for traceability, versatility and hygiene.

The new 9450 S printer guarantees that each product leaves the factory coded, that each code is right and that each code is and will be perfectly legible until it is consumed. Traceability is guaranteed with Mark & Read, an embedded system of coding and proofreading with a camera, directly on the user interface. Moreover, to be sure the right ink is used, the printer automatically checks the reference and best-before date of the consumable cartridges inserted by the operator thanks to its smart consumable system.
 
The 9450 S has been specifically designed to meet the sector’s demanding hygiene standards. It is made of stainless steel with IP56 (standard) and IP66 (option) protection rating. It can withstand high-pressure water cleaning and industrial detergents. Its design is smooth with no retention zones, which reduces bacterial contamination risks.
 
Totally versatile, the 9450 S printer is capable of coding 2 lines on the fastest existing production lines: up to 120,000 products per hour. With just one ink reference, the printer can code PET and glass bottles (including returnable glass), cans, liquid bricks, pouches, caps, wrapping films and shipping containers. This is a very useful solution when various containers are used in the same plant.
 
Several specialty inks are also available: a white ink that can resist the pasteurization process for dark glass, a permanent anti-counterfeiting ink to ensure brand protection, and a MEK-free ink for less environmental impact.
 
 
Operating costs of the 9450 S printer are up to 30% less than other competitive models. Ink consumption has been decreased thanks to specific fonts and optimized sector-specific resolutions. And like the entire 9400 range, the ink circuit design boasts a recycling system allowing a reduction of additive consumption of up to 2.5 ml per hour. 
 
Like the 9450 printer, the 9450 S printer can carry out simple promotional coding operations by importing single codes from a USB thumb drive. 
 
Lastly, from an integration standpoint, the 9450 S printer was designed to interface with equipment from major manufacturers such as Tetra Pak, Krones and Sidel. It is also compatible with the Weihenstephan standard.
