Squid Ink Manufacturing, a manufacturer of coding and marking systems for product identification and traceability, has introduced the CoPilot Gemini, a large format printing system designed to print superior quality hi-resolution characters on porous or non-porous surfaces.

The CoPilot Gemini is designed for label replacement and features Squid Ink’s largest printhead with up to 5.6” of print height. Printing at 360 dpi, the CoPilot Gemini will print GS1 barcodes with ease. Additionally, the CoPilot Gemini utilizes the same active ink system found in Squid Ink’s CoPilot Max printing system, allowing users to tilt or rotate the printhead in any direction without making height adjustments to the ink supply.
 
The system prints hi-resolution characters, razor-sharp text, scannable bar codes, and great-looking logos at industry-leading 360 DPI vertical resolution at speeds up to 220 ft per minute. For increased runtime, the CoPilot Gemini features a large 500ml snap-in cartridge, allowing users to swap ink cartridges in seconds. The generous ink volume, quick-change ink cartridge, and user-friendly touchscreen design allow users to keep their line running, reducing downtime, and maximizing ROI. 

The CoPilot Gemini is available now as an oil-based system for printing on porous substrates like uncoated corrugated and in the near future as a solvent-based system for printing on a variety of non-porous substrates. With up to 5.6” of print height and print speeds up to 220 ft per min, the CoPilot Gemini provides a cost-effective solution for making a mark on a wide variety of products and substrates.

The CoPilot Gemini features a 4.3” full-color touchscreen that allows users to access the system’s internal messages and print functions. Messages are created and edited on Squid Ink’s easy-to-use Orion PC Software and transferred via USB, Ethernet, wireless, or optional Windows tablet. The tablet is ideal for users who want message creation and editing functionality on the production floor.

The CoPilot Gemini controller features increased processing power to print the messages users want when they want to print them. In addition, faster GUI response time and near-immediate message rendering times allow the Gemini to keep up with the demands of a fast-paced manufacturing environment.

The CoPilot Gemini printing system is available now through Squid Ink’s worldwide network of authorized distributors.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
