High Resolution Large Character Printing
The Marsh 1100/3100 printers
The Marsh 1100/3100 printers combine high resolution printing with a simple
user interface, making message selection quick, easy and error-free. The Marsh
1100/3100 are designed and manufactured to reliably print accurate, high
quality, real time alphanumeric codes, bar codes and graphics.
Consistently high print quality - micropurging with every print
The 180 dpi resolution of the Marsh 1100/3100 printers allows for complete generic carton
coding at pre-printed quality levels. With their unique, self-maintaining printhead system, the
Marsh 1100/3100 printers guarantee the highest quality bar codes and printed images on every
case, even in the dustiest environments.
These systems can accomplish this because they are the only high resolution ink jet printers that
automatically clean and maintain the printhead with a unique, patented micropurging process
with every print — without affecting production speed or throughput. Unique technology builds
confidence in print quality.
Reduced cost of ownership — unique ink-recycling
You buy ink jet printing equipment to put ink on your
packaging – not on your production line or on the floor.
Thanks to an unique ink-recycling system, the Marsh
1100/3100 are the only printers where ink used for automatic
printhead maintenance is recycled and used for printing after
careful filtration. Every drop of ink you paid for goes where
you want it – on your packaging. The ink system is air-driven,
eliminating potential downtime from maintenance on pumps,
solenoids and other moving parts. Efficient use of ink and a
mechanically simple system ensure your Marsh 1100/3100
will always be ready to print the next code without needing
human intervention and the associated costs of downtime.
The carton tracking interlock system eliminates the risk of
dual marking or uncoded product, and prevents the wasted
ink and mess caused by accidental triggering of product
photocells. The advanced date checking algorithms found in
these printers reduce costly operator date coding errors.
Easy integration — small, single unit
The Marsh 1100/3100 consist of a single,
compact unit that takes up minimal space on
your production line. That single unit contains
an intuitive touch screen control system that
makes it easy for operators to select the right
job without the opportunity for errors created by
on line message creation. To enhance flexibility,
clusters of Marsh 1100s and 3100s can be
operated from a single master unit. Individual
printers or clusters can be controlled remotely
from factory IT systems, PLC input or other
remote computers through built-in network
(TCP/IP and RS-232) capability. Powerful offboard image design provides complete
flexibility in message editing and programming,
including the full list of TrueType® fonts.
