JETEC Software

JETEC understands that manufacturers may have several industrial ink jet printers and laser markers from various suppliers (Domino, Imaje, Videojet, Synrad, Quantronix, etc.) at their site but desire one central software to control these printing devices. In addition to printing devices, manufacturers may want to read a bar code from a work order, have the marking program for that product type be automatically selected and then have product specific variable information downloaded into the marking program. Printed bar codes may need to be verified for readability or 2D codes scanned and verified for Mil-Std-130 compliance prior to removing the product from the marking station. Lastly, the manufacturer may desire a statistical record of the verification results or the marked information to be uploaded to the central host computer. To meet these and many other requirements, JETEC offers the IMS™ Integrated Marking Application Software.

JETEC offers two IMS Software configurations. One for fixed head systems, whereby the inkjet printer(s) or laser marker(s) will be stationary and the parts moved beneath the marker head. For fixed position applications JETEC offers the IMS 2701 Software. This software is capable of controlling numerous ink jet printers, laser markers, label printers, bar code scanners, 2D code readers, weight and measure scales, UV curing stations, etc. The second IMS Software is for moving print head applications, integrated systems with motion assemblies. IMS 5000 Software was developed to provide ink jet and laser marker control, in addition to integrated devices safety light curtain, SMEMA conveyors, machine vision hardware, bar code scanners, X/Y/Z and theta motion assemblies and stop/start control hardware. All multi-axis JETEC systems are under IMS 5000 software control.

IMS Software operates within the Microsoft Windows environment. It provides easy set-up and control of individual part marking files. In most cases, using IMS Software will extend the normal capabilities of industrial ink jet printers or laser markers. Using IMS provides the user with the capability to print all standard Windows fonts, manipulate bar codes or 2D codes parameters based on specific substrates, print logos, images, custom date and time formats and comply with Mil-Std-130 UID requirements.

IMS works with a multitude of vendor products. Below is a partial listing by devices:

Ink Jet Printers Domino, Imaje, Videojet, Markem, Diagraph, Metronic, HP
Laser Markers Synrad, Quantronix, CAB Technologies, Lumonics
Label Printers Zebra, Datamax, Intermec, Printronix, Webber Marking

JETEC offers software development services to provide complete application development and integration support. JETEC’s software development team can provide the IMS Software in its standard configurations or customize the front end or provide enhancement capabilities to support your specific application. Over the past years, this Team has solved some challenging product identification problems. Most modifications are in the form of device drivers for new types of equipment or hardware, application specific user interfaces or manufacturing database integration.

JETEC continually makes upgrades to the standard IMS Software configurations. It is for this reason that JETEC strongly recommends IMS users subscribe to JETEC’s Software Upgrade Support Service (SUSS). Active SUSS subscribers can obtain periodic software upgrades on our web site as well receive additional software support services at a reduced or in many cases, no additional costs.
