The LCP/ML4 System, with new fast-dry inks, printheads and specially designed NEMA 12 rated ink pump assembly and controller; makes coding on non-porous and porous surfaces simple, fast clean and dependable.
Get clear, clean smudge-free marks on virtually all packaging materials. Industries using metal, plastic, poly, woven poly, clay-coat or any of the many other non-porous materials for packaging, save time and coats with the ML4’s high-speed application and standard four-second-dry-time. Dry time can be further accelerated by applying head or air to the coded surfaced. The same system and the same inks make equally bold marks on porous surfaces with no system changes or adjustments.
As with Marsh LCP Systems, the ML4 is durable and dependable. All electronics are encased in a NEMA 12 rated cabinet for complete protection from the working environment.
