The Jetline is available as a water-based system for printing on porous surfaces like corrugated cases, non-coated paper products, gypsum board and more. 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 a user's packaging operation. The Jetline also comes standard with a shaft encoder input for packagers using a variable speed conveyer. Squid Ink Manufacturing Inc., 800-877-5658 www.squidink.com Towel packaging and inspection system The Ergocon Towel inspection and packaging System works with an Autobag AB 255 wide bagger to package up to 7,000 towels per hour. The system is designed for high productivity bagging of cleaned bar, shop and microfiber towels, as well as washcloths, gloves and other industrial laundered items. The Ergocon System uses its automatic feed system to set the pace of production so that daily output is more predictable than systems hand-fed by an operator. The automatic feed system paired with the optional laser level Control, for the first time ever, makes it possible to bag towels without an operator when inspection is not required. Variable speed controls enable the system to run fast for high-production rates, or slower for items that require more stringent inspection.
