How does the Open Data Ink Roller Work?
The Open Data inking roller is a foam based cylinder which is soaked in a viscous UV resistant ink during its manufacture. When the user presses the lever of the price gun, the ink roller rotates as the print head moves across the face of the ink roller. This applies a thin layer of ink to the characters on the print head bands prior to the impression on the label.
The design of the ink roller and price gun head allows for a measured quantity of ink to be applied to the print head bands every time a label is used. As a result of this process, the output of the price gun should mean the labels are uniform in presentation at all times until the ink roller is exhausted.
Each ink roller should last for around 10,000 – 15,000 impressions before the print deteriorates.
