I have a customer with a Markem LP 8400 that is printing colored labels for an outdoor application. The problem they are having is this machine is 10 years old and it is obsolete. Markem is not supporting this equipment anymore. Not only are they having trouble getting parts, they are having trouble getting supplies, labels and ribbons. Over the past 14 months, I have been working on finding a solution with flexographic inks that would withstand the rigorous testing procedures and last out doors many years. The problem with flexographic inks is that they fade outside in a very short period of time. We could not make it past the 250 hour in the Weather-o-meter testing. I am here to report we have made significant progress. I will be writing more about this application over next several weeks. More to come.
