UBS (United Barcode Systems) APLINK MR and MR2 780 Porous High Resolution

The APLINK MR and MR2 series printers are amazing, full featured printers, capable of up to 70 mm print height for the 780, and an industry first of 140 mm for the MR 1400. The 780 uses a Seiko printhead which already sets it apart from the standard heads normally used. The Seiko printhead is a highly reliable print engine which is reflected in the specification that it can normally endure up to 50% more activations in its life versus the nearest competitor. Typical printhead life is between 7 - 9 years using it one shift per day, 5 days per week.

One unique characteristic of this printer is that the printhead can receive fairly serious blows, hits and impacts while not losing any channels of print quality. Forget the continuous purging and priming of other systems, this procedure is almost completely gone in this unit.

Programming is done via PC or laptop and can be uploaded to the printer unit via Ethernet, USB, TCP or Wi-Fi. The MR and MR2 are capable of printing all true type Windows fonts, graphics and all popular barcode protocols.

The printer also comes in the MR and MR2 UV model which, using UV curing ink and a heavy duty UV curing on-board light, allows barcodes and any other information to be applied to NON-POROUS surfaces such as plastic and steel.
