HITACHI REVEALS FIRST LASER CODERS IN NEW LM SERIES
DUSSELDORF – Leading manufacturer of high performance industrial printing systems, Hitachi
Europe GmbH has launched the first laser coders in its LM Series. These new CO2 units are a natural
fit with the company’s existing portfolio and complement its popular RX inkjet printers for primary and
secondary packaging applications.
Hitachi’s compact CO2 laser systems boast a 10 or 30 Watt power output and are designed for printing
on to various materials, including paper, cardboard, glass and plastic. With their robust dual-casing
design, these highly reliable coders can be used in extremely harsh environments and allow top quality
printing at a very wide range of production speeds.
In addition, Hitachi is now also offering a vision system for use in conjunction with its printing
equipment and for verifying text once it has been produced. The MC-20S vision system is optimised for
recognising typical inkjet-type dot matrix text which it checks as soon as it has been printed. In doing
so, it guarantees that the print quality is sound and the text is correct.
By expanding its portfolio of industrial printing systems, Hitachi is developing into a supplier of
equipment for printing solutions based on various forms of technology.
