Videojet DataFlex 6420 Thermal Transfer Overprinter

Videojet 6420 Overprinter

When uptime, high performance and throughput are critical, the Videojet DataFlex 6420 Thermal Transfer Overprinter provides high speed printing for flexible packaging applications. The 6420 is available in two print widths, 53 mm and 107 mm, to meet your specific application needs. The 53 mm format is ideal for a range of flexible packaging applications including ultrafast horizontal form fill seal applications with throughput up to 400 packs/min. When coding applications require a significant amount of content, such as ingredient lists and traceability information, the 107 mm format offers the ideal wide format capability.

Uptime Advantage and built-in productivity save time and money:

  • A patented and proven clutchless ribbon drive maintains optimal ribbon tension and virtually eliminates maintenance-related downtime 
  • Maximum ribbon length of 1200 m (3937 ft) extends time between ribbon change
  • 0.5 mm (0.02 in) print gap translates to more codes per ribbon roll
  • A range of ribbon saving features, such as interleaved and radial printing, can increase ribbon utilisation by at least two times
  • Up to 400 packs/min for high throughput applications

Simple Usability keeps operators focused on production, not the printer:

  • Operates as a standalone printer using colour touchscreen interface for simple operation
  • Intuitive CLARiTY™ 8.4 inch colour touchscreen makes set-ups fast and easy with fewer errors
  • Integrate with PLCs or factory management systems for centralised print control help eliminating errors
  • Full printer control from your packaging machine interface using the printer’s web browser functionality to simplify operation
  • A single DataFlex 6420 can control and coordinate printing on up to four printers using the built in leader/follower functionality 

Code Assurance helps eliminate costly coding errors:

  • Advanced coder software virtually eliminates code set-up errors
  • CLARiSOFT® code design software prevents incorrect printed dates, missed codes and costly production rework
