Introducing the Marsh 8000TM printer

The Marsh 8000 system combines high resolution printing with a highly advanced user interface, making message creation quick, easy and error-free. The Marsh 8000 allows users to print with eight maintenance-free, auto-purge printheads providing maximum flexibility to either print on four sides of a box or print on two independent production lines simultaneously.

A familiar operating system that can also run on a PC

The Marsh 8000 controller software is designed for the Windows CE® operating system. The controller software can be readily run from a remote PC, allowing codes to be created offline and then downloaded to single or multiple controllers via Ethernet or RS-232 connections. You can also create a centralized database of
messages from which codes and graphics can be accessed and stored. To reduce message selection errors, you can connect a bar code scanner to enter variable data or load messages. This new software is similar to the software used in other Videojet printers, allowing easy training for users.

High-resolution printing eliminates the need for pre-printed cartons

The Marsh 8000 system supports two models of printheads — EN120 (.8″, 20mm) and the EN300 (2″, 51mm) — to deliver on-line printing of graphics bar codes and True Type® fonts with character heights from 1/16″ (1.5mm) to 2″ (51mm) for full generic case coding, eliminating the need for pre-printed cartons or providing flexibility of dynamic printing of blank shippers. Maintenance-free auto-purge printheads use innovative, patented solvent wash technology to thoroughly clean print heads at pre-set intervals. Customers have the flexibility to set the auto-purge function, through software, to coincide with shift start, lunch or breaks to ensure maximum productivity. Solvent and waste is automatically collected from the print head face and deposited in an easy-todiscard refuse bottle.

Intuitive, graphical, icon-based interface with WYSIWYG image editor

With the Marsh 8000 controller interface, message creation is fast and easy to learn. Drag-and-drop editing tools with cut and paste features and group alignment make creating messages a snap. The WYSIWYG image editor minimizes the risk of error.

Advanced options allow users to customize date and time formats, as well as alpha and shift codes, making the system flexible enough to address any customer specific requirements.

The power to perform

The Marsh 8000 system represents the next level in Videojet’s printing technology through the use of an advanced user interface with full resolution image control and increased processing power. The Marsh 8000 system is extremely versatile, and it’s processing power provides fast message changeover, even when using external devices to initiate message call-ups.
