ICE - ICE Zodiac HS Solid State Coder

Using innovative technology and software, the ICE Zodiac HS printer delivers versatile, reliable and accurate coding for flexible packaging.

Maximum printing flexibility in one machine

  • One printer for intermittent or continuous mode, satisfying all applications.
  • Left or right hand operation.
  • Performs at both very high and very low speed operation using precise ribbon tension control.
  • Easy to wash down with the IP65 rated water tight printing cassette cover.
  • Custom made brackets to fit any production line.

Solid State ribbon drive

  • Simplest ribbon cassette design in the industry for effortless ribbon changeover.
  • Capacity for ribbon lengths up to 1,200m.
  • No clutch, brakes or wear parts therefore minimal maintenance and no degradation of performance for the whole life of the coder.
  • Several unique ribbon save modes ensure efficient use of consumables, with typically less than 0.5 mm of waste ribbon between prints.
