CoPilot

The CoPilot Hi-Resolution Printing System
Squid Ink’s CoPilot uses proven Xaar piezo technology to print up to .7” of hi-resolution characters, razor-sharp text, scannable bar codes, and great looking logos at 185 dpi and a 4.3″ full color touchscreen provides access to the system’s internal messages and print functions. Messages are created and edited on Squid Ink’s easy-to-use Orion™ PC Software and transferred via Ethernet or USB device. For larger applications, multiple CoPilot printing systems can be connected via Ethernet or wirelessly and controlled through one central Orion print station.

The Competitive advantage
Squid Ink introduces the CoPilot ™ printing system, a feature-rich hi-resolution printing system available at an entry level price. Squid Ink’s CoPilot printing system offers several advantages over competitive HP or Lexmark – based printing systems. With the CoPilot, users can expect 30% larger print, increased throw distance, 5 times larger ink volume, the ability to upgrade to a 2nd printhead, and much more

Jetline

The Jetline Drop on Demand Large Character Printing System
The Jetline is upgraded with software features that coding and marking users need most: virtually unlimited message memory, user definable time and date, expiration date, and sequential code printing, as well as a shift organizer to automatically separate and code different work shifts within your packaging operation. The Jetline also comes standard with a shaft encoder input for packagers using a variable speed conveyer. Again, offering all of the functionality needed for even your most difficult coding and marking applications.

Out With the Old, In With the New
Introducing the newest technology to combine with large character dot matrix printing in years. Say goodbye to outdated keypads and two-line backlit input devices and hello to full color touchscreens and USB connectivity. The Jetline™ offers the durability, versatility and productivity you have come to rely on from Squid Ink in a bold, new package featuring today’s updated technology. The Jetline offers more options for making your mark: water-based systems for printing on porous surfaces like corrugated cases, or solvent-based systems for printing on non-porous products like plastics, metals or more.

Innovative Technology, Proven Reliability
The Jetline utilizes Squid Ink’s patented microchanneling technology, eliminating the need for a costly array of fluid valves. Squid Ink’s proven plunger technology distributes ink through a series of channels, keeping production and maintenance costs to a minimum, especially when compared to the costly valve technology common in most ink jet printers today. As the newest addition to Squid Ink’s growing family of marking and coding systems, the Jetline gives users more choices for their coding applications.

About us

Company details

In 1992, the ink jet fluid industry was ripe for change. Manufacturers were selling drop-on-demand ink at more than $300 per 5-gallon pail.

Squid Ink saw an opportunity to provide high quality products at a fair price. We began manufacturing a higher quality product and selling it at $75 per pail. Our ink jet fluids ran cleaner than the competitive fluid at one-fourth the cost.

Squid Ink increased the quality of the product, gave customers more value for their money and gained their trust. Customers have relied on Squid Ink products ever since. Today, our product line has expanded to include barcode and batch code printing equipment and case taping equipment, as well as superior quality inks.
