Videojet to Display Latest Coding Solutions for Food Packaging at Food Northwest 2023

Reliable marking and coding solutions integrate seamlessly into packaging lines and are designed to meet the needs of today’s food processing operations.

PORTLAND — April 4, 2023 — Videojet Technologies, a global leader in coding, marking and printing solutions, is showcasing printers and labelers for food packaging at this week’s Food Northwest Process and Packaging Expo in Booth 911 at the Oregon Convention Center, April 4-6, 2023.

Intuitive interface eases operator management while delivering the right code at the right quality

Attendees of the event will get to see the digitally enabled Videojet 1880 continuous inkjet (CIJ) printer in action. “The Videojet 1880 is exactly what food processing operators are looking for when it comes to high-speed coding while operating their lines without interruption,” said Mark Breunig, CIJ product manager at Videojet. “Smarter printer technology, thanks to the 1880’s predictive capabilities, means greater uptime, improved productivity and lower costs over the lifetime of the printer.”

Those predictive capabilities of the Videojet 1880 include the MAXIMiZE™ diagnostics platform that continuously monitors printer performance and helps operators reduce the main causes of unplanned downtime. In addition, the 1880 printhead comes with a unique sensor that can detect build-up and send an alert to the user. The 1880’s auto rinse feature removes ink build-up within 90 seconds and helps avoid potential print quality issues. The printer is also available with an IP66-rated cabinet and 316 stainless steel for high pressure and caustic washdown environments.
