DataFlex® 6320

The DataFlex® 6320 is a thermal transfer coding solution for flexible packaging applications requiring high quality variable printing at moderate print speeds.

Designed for high uptime and low cost of ownership, the DataFlex® 6320 is designed to meet a wide range of flexible packaging printing needs. The patented clutchless ribbon drive provides superior uptime by maintaining consistent ribbon tension which virtually eliminates ribbon breaks, while simultaneously ensuring high quality print. The DataFlex® 6320 is available in two print widths, 32mm and 53mm, to provide the best combination of printhead and ribbon width to deliver the most cost effective solution for your application requirements. Engineered for applications such as vertical form fill seal, the DataFlex® 6320 delivers print speeds up to 250ppm and offers a range of ribbon saving modes to reduce your cost per print.

Uptime Advantage

  • Clutchless ribbon drive maintains consistent ribbon tension, virtually eliminating ribbon breaks and ribbon related downtime
  • Simplest ribbon cassette design on the market, that makes ribbon replenishment fast, ensuring the coder is back on-line and coding with minimum impact to production

Built-in productivity

  • Longer 1200m ribbon length provides more throughput of coded products between ribbon changes
  • A wide ranging selection of ribbons, designed specifically to meet the challenges of flexible packaging applications
  • Patented bi-directional ribbon drive helps ensure that the absolute minimum ribbon is used during each print cycle, providing more prints per roll of ribbon • Consistent 0.02” (0.5mm) gap between prints helps ensure highest ribbon efficiency and minimum waste

Code Assurance

  • Advanced coder software virtually eliminates set-up errors
  • Simple message selection reduces the potential for operator errors
  • Range of customer selectable rules and permissions that help to prevent operator error with the printed code

Simple usability

  • • Seamless mechanical integration with a range of OEM equipment • Comprehensive communications package for host packaging
    and control
    • Easy to use interface with 8.4″ icon based color touch screen
    • Intuitive design features make training and operation quick
    and easy
