“The predictive capabilities of the 1860 printer, along with the new optional Scan2Run functionality, enables manufacturers to increase productivity and reduce coding errors,” said Anthony Blencowe, global business unit director, Videojet,
Videojet research shows up to 70% of coding errors are caused by operator error, with the most common mistakes being incorrect data entry and incorrect job selection.
The 1860 CIJ printer can remove human error from the print job set-up process by allowing operators to call up stored jobs on a printerly by scanning a pre-defined barcode on a job sheet.
Scan2Run can be purchased either with the 1860 printer, or post installation.
A handheld barcode scanner is attached directly to the printer and can also be purchased from Videojet.
The optional feature is now available on the Videojet 1860 printer.
