Printing on film

XTO, ULTIMATE EASE OF OPERATION

Labeling all different types of flexible packaging films reliably, quickly and precisely the all new XTO is the perfect fit for a wide range of industries and applications. It captivates through an outstanding uptime, highly accurate print results at high speed, a modular concept for maximum flexibility and the best price-performance ratio on the market.

Reduced downtime

The ergonomic and fast plug & play ribbon change function and a 100% tool-free printhead change within seconds ensure maximum uptime.

Maximum flexibility

Consisting of a separate fully functioning printing unit, a separate power supply and a separate HMI display, the XTO can be integrated into any existing packaging machine or production line.

Superior print performance

The XTO has an increased “safe operating area” for highest accuracy even on high printing speed of up to 1,000 mm/sec. The innovative and highly controlled motor-driven printhead-movement results in optimum print quality of text, barcodes and logos.

Connectivity and IOT

Various interfaces and applications ensure that the XTO is future proof in terms of connectivity and IoT. A crypto chip in the printhead of the XTO stores important information such as running kilometers, running hours and printhead dotline status. A web server application provides maximum flexibility in controlling the XTO and an optional HMI guarantees the highest user friendliness.

SWING, FAST PRINTING SYSTEM

Thermal transfer technology makes Swing an ideal solution for overprinting variable data (dates, forward or backward number sequences, text, lists of ingredients, barcodes, two-dimensional codes, logos) on plastic film or paper. A solution which allows to print directly on the production line, to the advantage of printing speed and quality.

SPEED

With Swing you can print up to 1000 mm/s or up to 350 prints/minute for high-definition applications (up to 12 points/mm – 300 dpi) without ever stopping the production line.

SAVING

With the thermal transfer printing you can change the head without changing the plate. And you can save thermal transfer ribbon by using the ribbon saving functions.

FLEXIBILITY

Swing has a bracketing system ready for the most popular machines on the market and comes in a variety of models according to the operation of the packaging machine.

SIMPLICITY

With Swing you can print variable data on small batches or intervene on the printing parameters directly on the touchscreen, by connecting to a computer or by using a USB flash drive.

APPLICATIONS

NON-STOP

Variable data must be overprinted on the moving film on non-stop continuous packing machines.

Since the movement speed of the film is not constant an encoder device must be fitted on the printing roller to allow synchronism between the printing speed and the film speed. The SWING with a fixed printing head is used for this application. Recommended the model for this use is the Swing Series C.

INTERMITTENT

SWING series IE

Printers for intermittent packaging machines.

On intermittent packaging machines, the film advances in steps and overprinting with Eidos technology is performed during the stopping times of the film.

The SWING with a mobile printing head is used for this application. Recommended the models for this use is the Swing Series .ie and the Swing Series X.

MULTI-TRACK

For multi-track packaging machines, Eidos has created a series of specific printers characterised by variable width for thermoforming and heat-sealing machines and designed to replace mechanical date stampers on multi-track applications.

Recommended the models for this use is the Swing Series .X and the Swing Series XL.
