Videojet DataFlex Plus
Thermal Transfer Overprinter
Maximum reliability and
efficiency for variable, high
resolution images on flexible
packaging and labels.
Increased Production Line Uptime
The Videojet DataFlex Plus Thermal Transfer
Overprinter (TTO) delivers high resolution
images on flexible packaging, while
minimizing downtime and costs associated
with ribbon breaks and production
changeovers. For marking variable information
such as date, time, batch code, ingredients,
logos and marketing information onto flexible
film packaging, labels or glossy cards, this
system provides the ultimate in productivity
and efficiency.
A patented and proven clutchless ribbon drive
with few wear parts increases mechanical
reliability and minimizes maintenance-related
downtime. Through the use of motors and
software, optimal ribbon tension is consistently
maintained, virtually eliminating downtime caused
by ribbon breaks and false ribbon breaks.
ccommodates ribbons up to 1,200 meters in
length for long, uninterrupted production runs
• Increased production line efficiency via simple
cassette design and fast ribbon changes
Lowest Cost of Ownership
The DataFlex Plus is designed for
low total cost of ownership. The
patented bi-directional ribbon
drive utilizes motors for both the
ribbon unwind and re-wind reels,
allowing unused ribbon to be
recaptured after each print.
.5mm gap between prints from the beginning to the
end of the ribbon roll creates more prints per roll
and ensures highest possible ribbon efficiency
i-directional drive eliminates over-printing and
provides consistent image quality
tandard ribbon save functions further reduce
ribbon expense and maximize the number of prints
per roll

Code Assurance
Wrong codes can mean waste,
rework and added expense.
The DataFlex Plus makes it
easy to get your codes right,
and practically impossible to get them wrong.
Easy to Learn and Use
The intuitive, high-resolution graphical user interface
and color touchscreen deliver easy to learn, iconbased controls and a WYSIWYG image display to
reduce downloading and entry errors.
dvanced software provides code assurance by
reducing operator interaction and minimizing
potential for human error
n-board diagnostics make
trouble shooting quick and easy,
resulting in less downtime and
reduced training requirements
• Intelligent Date Rules reduce potential for date
errors that may result in product rework or waste
High Quality Thermal Transfer Printing
SB scanner connection allows for easy,
automated message setup, reducing manual
hree levels of password protection for added
Protection in Harsh Environments
The DataFlex Plus is also available with an IP rated
53mm printer width model.
• Enhanced protection against dust and water
• Ideally suited to hygienic packaging applications
and washdown environments
xtended temperature range with selected ribbons
from 35 - 104ºF (2 - 40ºC)
The DataFlex Plus system allows
for on-line printing of variable and
real-time data such as best by
dates, times, batch/lot codes,
ingredients listing, bar codes and
logos with crisp, clear images.
igh-resolution images on a wide variety of flexible
packaging, labels and other materials
ell-suited for applications in the snack food,
bakery, confectionery, frozen and refrigerated foods,
bagged fresh vegetables and dried fruits, meats,
coffee and pharmaceutical markets
Maximum Flexibility
The DataFlex Plus has the built-in capacity to change
between intermittent and continuous operation quickly
and easily — in the same unit.
