High resolution, drop on demand printer designed specifically for printing onto farmed eggs using a food grade ink that complies with all European and F.D.A. regulations.

It can print onto six eggs simultaneously and print quality is optimised for each egg using a ‘ski system’ that allows for egg size variances.

It is controlled by the ProDigit controller that can design, store and print using an LCD touch screen interface.

  • High resolution printer for farmed eggs
  • Up to six print modules per line
  • Logo’s and images
  • Real time clock & counter
  • External data
  • FDA approved food grade ink in red, blue, green & black
  • Productivity of up to 30,000 eggs per hour

Productivity  :  The ProDigit EggsPrint can print six eggs simultaneously at high resolution at a rate of up to 27,000 eggs per hour

Food Grade Ink  :  The MapleJet Royal red food grade and blue food grade inks comply fully with FDA and USDA regulations

Easy to use  :  The LCD controller uses a customised interface that is extremely easy to use minimising training requirements for new users

Easy change ink cartridge system  :  The ink system uses a replaceable 180ml ink cartridge that can be changed easily and quickly with no requirement for down time

Wash resistant ink  :  The MapleJet Royal food grade inks are resistant to the washing process employed in egg farms making the printer suitable for both egg farms and grading stations

Individual print head ‘ski system’ control  :  The independent print head control system employs a ‘ski system’ that optimises the print distance for each individual egg allowing the printer to be used before the eggs are graded
