Videojet 6230 Thermal Transfer Printer

Thermal Transfer Overprinters (TTO)

Thermal Transfer Printer for Flexible Packaging Materials

The Videojet 6230 is a low speed Thermal Transfer Printer that utilizes the latest technology to help reduce flexible packaging coding errors, and improve total cost of ownership (TCO) through a proven and cost-effective solution.

The 6230 Thermal Transfer Printer delivers easy usability with an intuitive tablet-like 5’’ touchscreen controller with CLARiTY™ interface. The simple ribbon path helps to ensure fast changeovers and a more efficient operation.

Code assurance comes as standard in the 6230 Thermal Transfer Printer when using templates created by CLARiSOFT™ or VideojetConnect Design software. These simple code creation tools help reduce operator interactions resulting in fewer user errors and unnecessary product waste and rework.

In addition to the features available, the 6230 offers high-quality codes up to speeds of 150 ppm and is an ideal solution for users migrating to a digital solution from analog equipment like hot stamp and roller coders.

And with optional VideojetConnect™ Remote Service, your team can access Videojet experts to help improve productivity and troubleshoot potential issues in ways that other printers can’t.
