The system prints hi-resolution characters, razor-sharp text, scannable bar codes and great looking logos at up to 360 dpi. Squid Ink’s proven library of inks for porous substrates offers ultra-low maintenance performance, eliminating the need for auto-priming functions and offering better ink utilization than competitive systems.

CoPilot Max consumable costs are typically 1/10 of the cost of paper labels, and eliminate pre-printed cartons and SKUs of label inventory.
