The AutoPilot Advantage
Squid Ink introduces the AutoPilot printing system, a
feature-rich hi-resolution printing system available at an entry
level price. Squid Ink’s AutoPilot printing system offers several
advantages over competitive HP® or Lexmark® – based printing
systems. With the AutoPilot, users can expect 30% larger
print, the ability to upgrade to a 2nd printhead, message
programming via touchscreen user panel, the ability to print
barcodes with standard systems, the ability to print on a variety
of porous and non-porous surfaces, and much more.
Designed To Meet Your Demands
Squid Ink’s AutoPilot printing system will print up to .7″ of
hi-resolution characters, razor-sharp text, scannable bar codes,
and great looking logos. Users can run up to two printheads
from a single touchscreen controller to maximize efficiency and
print on opposite sides of a case if needed. The AutoPilot is
capable of running oil-based or solvent-based inks to print on
a variety of substrates. Best of all, AutoPilot’s 180 dpi print
resolution meets your application needs for quality coding
and marking.
Printing Made Easy
The AutoPilot’s touchscreen controller features ATM-simple,
easy-to-follow user prompts to program, save and print
messages. Message programming or editing can be done right
at the production line, or in the convenience of an office, and
uploaded to the AutoPilot via USB or ethernet. In addition, the
built-in software automatically calculates ink usage for each
message so you can modify your messages and control your
consumable costs.
Maximize Your Uptime
The AutoPilot is designed to meet the harsh demands of your
application. UL, CE, and CSA certified, the AutoPilot features
a durable touchscreen, industrial strength resin printer
construction, and allows the AutoPilot to operate in the most
extreme factory environments. In addition, Squid Ink’s PZ-1000
ink for porous substrates offers low-maintenance performance,
eliminating the need for auto-priming functions and offering
better ink utilization than competitive systems. You can be
confident that AutoPilot’s rugged design will withstand the
most abusive industrial environments while providing superior
quality print.
