ImTech Introduces New Low Cost OEM Mark605 High Resolution Inkjet Print Controller


The Mark605 is designed to fully integrate with custom applications

Even the most demanding graphic applications fall to ImTech's newest offering; the Mark605 Inkjet Print Controller, a low cost, high speed, high resolution, and embeddable inkjet print controller supported by the dependability of Hewlett-Packard disposable print cartridges.

ImTech has introduced the Mark605 to meet the expanding needs of OEM's for faster, cleaner, low maintenance, high speed, high performance print delivery.The Mark605 is designed to fully integrate with custom applications.

"We are confident that it will become the print technology of choice as manufacturers stretch to meet ever more challenging print applications," said ImTech president Bill Buskirk.

Versatility is the hallmark of the Mark605 due to its simple integration protocol.It provides access to macros; for serialization, counting, date calculations, time offsets, timestamps and others, from custom applications.

Each Mark 605 supports two ½” printheads and may be grouped together to create user defined print heights. Preconfigured print head arrays add to the ease of installation in industrial environments. The arrays eliminate power related printhead failures due to mishandling preserving uptime and increasing dependability.

The Mark605 easily meets demanding graphic applications by delivering up to 600 X 600 dpi.With its user defined input/output lines, it even allows upstream control from PLC's and signaling to external peripherals minimizing the total installation footprint of this compact powerful print controller.

"Our quest to improve inkjet print technology compels us to continue to deliver faster, more efficient and higher performing products." said Les Faulds, director of sales and marketing.
