MACSA ID UK’S FIRST PPMA EXHIBIT TO FEATURE ICON 2 SMALL CHARACTER LASER CODER
Compact, lightweight and affordable system offers permanent, consistent and durable marking in a cleaner, more usable and sustainable design
Macsa ID UK Ltd – a newly established division of global laser coding, marking and scoring equipment manufacturer, Barcelona-based Macsa ID – will be exhibiting at the PPMA show for the first time where its compact, lightweight and affordable ICON 2 small character laser coder will be on display.
Macsa ID UK’s powerful ICON 2, which offers permanent, consistent and durable marking in a cleaner, more usable and sustainable design, is ideal for first time laser users in the food, beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and chemical processing and packaging markets.
As part of the recent upgrade, Macsa ID UK’s high speed ICON 2 now boasts a metal enclosure for extra robustness, has a more efficient and reliable power supply and is available in both 10 and 30 Watt versions. It is also available with network connectivity as standard.
In addition, a new external colour touch screen with intuitive interface enables simple navigation, ease of programming and better functionality, especially where the ICON 2 is installed in difficult to reach areas.
For major environmental advantages, the low maintenance ICON 2 laser coder offers a cleaner, more energy efficient design. It does not require costly consumables so there are no messy ink deposits or noxious solvent emissions. Plus better filters help keep the laser and electronics cool and clean.
The ICON 2 is capable of marking on most substrates including labels, cartons, plastics, glass, wood and textiles. Unlike the first ICON model, it can print both linear and 2D barcodes. Static barcoding is available as standard whilst dynamic barcoding is optional.
It uses high performance optics, powerful hardware and advanced, low overhead software to enable its core laser to meet the speeds of most production lines. Meanwhile, its compact, lightweight design means it can be easily installed in locations where space is limited.
The ICON 2 laser coder is supplied with mounting stand, lens protection and product detect photocell.
The ideal laser for many packaging applications, Macsa ID UK’s ICON 2 offers superb performance, usability and reliability at high speeds, increased environmental benefits and lower running costs.
