Sumitomo’s New SumiMark® IV Plus Thermal Transfer Printer Now Distributed by CDM Electronics

CDM Electronics has announced the availability of the Sumitomo SumiMark® IV PLUS high-performance thermal transfer tubing printer, supplies and accessories. The stand-alone system, which does not require a dedicated computer, provides the same industry-leading print quality, durability, and flexibility as prior SumiMark thermal transfer printer models. The 300 dpi printer ships with new software developed specifically for the cable identification industry, new touchpad control to support expanded capabilities and enhanced functionality, and Ethernet and USB communication for networking capabilities.  Its thermal printing process produces a dry, permanent mark that can be handled immediately after printing and meets the print performance requirements of SAE-AS5942 and MIL-STD-202G, Method 215J fluid resistance test standard. The system imprints on all SumiMark continuous, and Sumitag formatted heat shrink tubing and tie-on cable markers. The SumiMark IV PLUS high-performance thermal transfer printer, SumiMark and Sumitag heat shrink tubing products are now available from CDM Electronics. Optimized for high-volume, mission critical applications, the SumiMark IV Plus prints 300 dpi text and graphics on cable assemblies and wiring employed in nearly any harsh environment where temperature fluctuation, abrasion and chemical resistance are factors. It is ideally suited for aerospace, military, and mass transit applications, including military/tactical communications radio, weapons, power distribution and fire control. Marked labels and tags are also used to identify cable assemblies and wire harnesses in commercial and private aircraft, avionic, space flight, telecommunications, digital/video conversion, switching cable assemblies, and railway electronics manufacturing and repair. The SumiMark IV PLUS features an integrated cutter for full or partial cutting to customer-specified tubing lengths in diameters ranging from 1/16” to 2”. It prints 300 dpi at speeds up to 12” inches per second on material lengths up to 14” and widths up to 4”. Shrink ratios are 2:1, 3:1, and 4:1. It imprints freeform text, custom graphics, logos, barcodes, sequential alpha/numeric markers, and standard Windows fonts in sizes ranging from 5 to 120 points. The system prints on all colors, including clear and adhesive-lined products. Its compact footprint and ruggedized frame minimize bench space requirements while maximizing durability.
