Non-contact Coding by VideoJet Printer.

Friar, J.H.

From a coding machine that could print up to ten numerals on a beer can line in 1974, the VideoJet Printer has expanded its capability to be interfaced with a mini-computer which will print a variable alpha/numeric message of any length. As an aid to product traceability and freshness dates for good quality control, the VideoJet Printer will automatically change codes in fifteen and sixty minute cycles. Also sequential numbering is available. The non-contact VideoJet Coder will print on any surface. Additional applications in breweries are on fiber cartons of glass and cans, bottle labels and kegs.
