Product - HF4000 - Hot Foil Cable Marker - Dual Drums


Double Drum Hot Foil Printer

The Taymer HF4000 Hot Foil Printer is designed for printing without any interruption in production. While one job is running, the alternate print drum can be set up for the next job. A flick of the switch transfers the printing from the one print drum to the next. Footage only, metric only and footage and metric models are available.
A built in microprocessor controls all aspects of the marking process and adjusts the machine to suit the changing conditions and speeds of the production line. Clear durable legends are produced at speeds up to 450 ft/min (150m/min).
The ease of operation and setup reduces scrap, production delays and the risk of damage to delicate communication and fibre optic cables. A dual tape spool and tape accumulator system eliminates print interruptions.
These standard features and more make the Taymer HF4000 a new generation in wire and cable printing.
