In the era of the state of the art factory, smooth interconnectivity between production infrastructure is key. The ability of upstream and downstream machines to communicate with ease can optimise production line performance and efficiency. And that has impacted the way manufacturers upgrade their lines. There’s been a move away from buying individual components, to choosing holistic solutions. OEMs deliver these to their manufacturing customers; assembling turnkey solutions with high quality, reliable, high performing machines.
OEM customers need to maximise production uptime. To ensure profitability, machinery malfunctions and unscheduled production stoppages must be avoided at all costs. So to accompany their own core technology, OEMs only choose high quality components that deliver reliability and quality results.
We’re proud that world-leading OEMs have selected edding compact printers as the marking system for their production and packaging solutions.
Historically, OEMs choose globally renowned machines with reputations developed over many years. Whilst edding compact printers are a relatively new yet disruptive entrant to this sector, we’ve fast proven ourselves to deliver a powerful combination of reliability, connectivity, performance and robust build that OEMs are looking for.
edding compact printers deliver:
Maximum uptime – Built around clean Thermal Inkjet (TIJ) technology, edding compact printers are a purely digital technology with no moving parts which means zero scheduled servicing or maintenance for the life of the printers.
Quality build – Manufactured in Germany using only high-quality components, edding compact printers are built to last in a solid aluminium housing.
Ease of use – edding compact printers are available with OEM cable kits and external accessories for integration and connection with 3rd party machinery, including, for example, control of the printer via machine HMI panels and Siemens integration. Password protection is built into the printer, whilst end users can also connect to the printer remotely via Ethernet and WiFi. Ease-of-use was a clear priority in its design, making it the first industrial printer in the market that does not require any technical training.
Speed – With software upgrades, we’re continually advancing the performance of our printers. With the edding FastPrint upgrade, edding compact printers are now able to achieve up to 75 print per second; among the fastest on the market.
Space saving – edding compact printers take up minimal space, ensuring they can fit into tight spaces in and around machinery.
Expert inks – You no longer need different coding solutions for different materials. With edding’s extensive ink portfolio you can print on almost every surface using the best resolution for your application – from 75dpi up to 600dpi. Printing on metal, glass and rubber, to plastics and cardboard has never been easier. Switching between inks takes seconds.
And finally, the powerful connectivity of a true Industry 4.0 solution: edding compact printers slot easily into any total packaging solution. They support all state of the art protocols for connection to Manufacturing Control or ERP systems. You also have the versatility to control the device via your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or the installed touchscreen.
