The Komax ims 295 BC (Black Colour), ims 295 BS (Black Small) and ims 295 MC (Multi Colour) inkjet marking systems excel in their high marking speeds and in the simple and reliable way in which they process the wire. All IMS marking systems have two different interfaces, an RS232 and an Ethernet (TCP/IP). That means they can be operated with current as well as future Komax machines. They are particularly suitable in combination with automatic Kappa strippers and with the Alpha, Gamma and Zeta fully automatic crimping machines.
Text input, setup parameters and all other settings for the marking text are easy to enter from the user interface of the basic machine. The number of marking texts is defined in ten initial markings, ten end markings and one continuous middle marking. The standard functions include bold, symbols, adjustable font width and height, double character spacing, inverse font, continuously alternating text and sample marking.
Ink density is measured constantly with the automatic solvent metering unit to ensure operation that is both ecological and economical. A condenser unit is available as an option to recover solvent. It reduces solvent consumption and virtually eliminates the presence of solvent from the air in the room.
The ink and solvent tanks are quick and easy to access. Inks can be replenished while marking is going on. With the ingenious control concept, top quality marking is achieved even when the wire is subject to high rates of acceleration or deceleration. In addition, a speed optimisation feature ensures that wire sections without marking are processed at the maximum possible wire processing speed.
The ims 295 inkjet marking systems can also be operated offline without the basic machine for simple applications. The marking settings are entered from the integrated membrane keyboard with VGA display.
To optimise marking quality, contrast and adherence, Komax has an extremely broad range of ink types on offer to match the line-up of Komax markers. Elaborate wire preparations are no longer required in most cases.
