Videojet DataFlex® 6530

The Videojet DataFlex® 6530 offers the latest in TTO technology for flexible packaging applications, providing automatic code defect detection and multiple ways to help improve uptime and productivity.

When superior performance and uptime are critical for production efficiency and consistent high-quality printing is required, the Videojet DataFlex® 6530 is the ideal printer. The airless, patented all-electronic system and ribbon drive can achieve speeds up to 700ppm and offers multiple integration options with a modular design.

The Videojet DataFlex® 6530 comes standard with Videojet iAssure™ code quality assurance technology, which automatically detects common print defects, helping to ensure high-quality codes are applied to your
packages time after time.* Combined with our CLARiTY™ software, the 6530 reduces the potential for print and coding errors, reducing waste and rework with no extra manpower or equipment.

Uptime Advantage

  • Intelligent Motion™ technology removes the need for compressed air and associated costs and downtime, which helps maximize consistent print quality and printhead life
  • Discover code legibility issues that indicate the potential need for printer maintenance
  • Higher throughput versus prior models by 25%

Built-in productivity

  • Default settings and no factory air gauge help maintain consistent code quality and avoid the risk of operators over-adjusting conventional air and energy settings
  • Quick change printhead and minimal wear parts can reduce the time that production is interrupted when replacements are required

Code Quality Assurance

  • iAssure™ technology automatically detects common print defects before pallets of product stack up, cause unwanted waste or reworked product and require additional operator time to correct the error*
  • CLARiTY™ software helps ensure the right code is consistently printed on the right product

Easy usability

  • Designed to withstand tough production line environments
  • Minimal wear parts are easy to change out, improving production line uptime
  • Compact design fits on almost all production lines
  • Simple operator interface

* iAssureTM technology complements existing quality control processes.
It is not designed to detect all printing errors and does not read bar codes.
