Thermal Transfer Overprinting

Videojet DataFlex® 6530

The Videojet DataFlex® 6530 is a high-speed
thermal transfer overprinter built to offer superior
performance and consistent high-quality printing.
The airless, patented all-electronic system and
ribbon drive can achieve print speeds up to
1000mm/s and throughputs up to 700 ppm(1).

The 6530 offers multiple integration options with
a modular design, and is available in two printhead
widths, 53mm with iAssureTM and 107mm, to meet
your specific application needs.(2)

Uptime Advantage

  • Reduce costs and downtime, maximize printhead life and gain
    consistent print quality thanks to airless Videojet Intelligent
    Motion™ technology
  • Up to 1,200m ribbon capacity and a variety of ribbon economy
    modes help maximize the time between ribbon changeovers

Built-in productivity

  • Using default settings you can maintain consistent code quality
    and avoid conventional air and energy settings that operators
    might over-adjust
  • Quickly discover code legibility issues that indicate the potential
    need for printer maintenance
  • Industry-leading simple cassette change designed for fast ribbon
    replacement to maximize uptime
  • 25% faster throughput than previous Videojet TTO models

Code Quality Assurance

  • Videojet iAssure technology (2), a built-in code quality checker, helps
    reduce waste and rework with no additional hardware, installation or training  

  • Videojet CLARiTY software helps ensure the right code is
    consistently printed on the right product

Easy usability

  • Simple operator interface
  • Designed to withstand tough production line environmentsCompact design fits on almost all production lines
  • Minimal wear parts are easy to change out, improving production
    line uptime

1. Application and substrate dependent. iAssure technology is not currently supported for use with all ribbon savings modes.
2. iAssure not available in 107mm printhead width
