Z408 PiZ408 Pi is an industrial large character printing system designed for coding with special pigmented inks.
It is suitable for the heavy industry, especially for printing on metal tubes, sheets and beams, plastic pipes and bars and various products made of rubber.

Thanks to the exclusive ink supply system with continuous and automatic ink agitation and to the innovative NZP printheads, Z408 Pi plays a strategic role in the management of coding with strong pigmented inks.

Z408 Pi manages 7, 16 and 32 dot NZP printheads with character height up to 120mm, which guarantee total ink circulation.Tank with alarm

The innovative NZP printheads are made of stainless steel AISI 304 with high efficiency Solenoid technology. They use teflon hydraulic connections and quick release hydraulic fitting (CPC) and allow an excellent resistance to shock and vibration on the production lines.

Z408 Pi system offers excellent performances in harsh environments, ensuring a high-contrast coding of alphanumeric texts, expiry dates, counters, production batch and logos directly on flat, curved and irregular surfaces.

The simple and compact console, with stainless steel structure AISI 304, is equipped with a 10,1″ full color touch-screen display, which lends itself to clear legibility and easy message programming.
