Regional Sales Manager and laser specialist for Allen Coding Systems in Scotland, Scott Wilson is so passionate about the new iCON™ laser coder, that he’s taken to the road to dispel any myths about laser technology that might still be stuck in people’s minds.
Travelling throughout the whole of Scotland, Scott insists that the road show is not a sales drive, but more the chance to “plant seeds for the future and to encourage ‘laser evangelists’!”
He explains: “Many people are under the misapprehension that laser technology is expensive, that the machines are huge and unwieldy and difficult to programme, and that safety is a major issue.
“In reality, the recently launched iCON™ system has been designed specifically for small character coding applications in packaged goods and industrial products, and offers users an affordable laser alternative to inkjet. Plus it’s clean, reliable and easy to use!” says Scott.
He continues: “When people witness a demonstration and hear the true facts and figures about laser technology, the vast majority of them fall in love with the machine. Hopefully this means that, in time, they will use it to phase out their use of inkjet.”
Particularly ideal as a first introduction to laser technology, the ICON system is simple to operate, fast and competitively priced with ink jet printers. Specially designed for small character coding, ICON features an integrated colour touch screen and intuitive interface with context sensitive menus for ease of navigation.
ICON uses high performance optics, powerful hardware and advanced, low overhead software to enable its core laser to meet the high speeds of most production lines. Meanwhile, its compact design means it can be installed in locations where space is limited.
As no inks are required, the laser coder offers increased environmental benefits too. No unwanted ink deposits and no solvent emissions results in a cleaner production area and helps minimise overall carbon footprint.
Delivering high quality printing, this advanced system is ideal for applications in the beverage, cosmetics, industrial and electronics industries. It is suitable for most substrates including labels, cartons, plastics, glass, wood and textiles.
