Important features of the SmartDate 3i/100 thermal transfer coder are:

  • increased print area – up to 107mm in width and 74mm in length
  • more processing power – for faster 300 dpi imaging
  • more memory – to maintain a large image database
  • added flexibility – for the integration of other systems

Other capabilities of the coder include easy operator fault-finding capabilities, portable data transport (optional), full diagnostics and intuitive menu-driven software and ribbon save modes as standard.

The SmartDate 3i/100 thermal transfer coder can be networked using CimControl® networking software, for improved productivity and increased efficiencies, and Composer™ software for graphics download.

SmartDate thermal transfer coders are ideal for flexible packaging materials and applications within the snack food, confectionary, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, baked foods and frozen foods industries. They are widely used with VFFS machines, HFFS machines, flow wrappers, label applicators and cartoning machines. These coders are the preferred thermal transfer coders by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) around the world.

In addition to the other benefits of the SmartDate 3i/100 coder, MARKEM also offers the Uptime™ Total Services Program – a comprehensive array of services that maximize uptime and productivity. The program includes everything from reliability-centered maintenance programs and professional on-site installations, to the myMARKEM™ portal, which provides online access to information and documentation.
