SquidInk Copilot Max


Squid Ink’s CoPilot® Max printing system is designed to print superior quality hi-resolution characters on porous surfaces.
With up to 2.8” of print height per printhead and the ability to run up to 2 printheads from one controller, the CoPilot Max offers a versatile, yet cost effective solution for your coding and marking applications.



CoPilot Max features a 4.3” full color touchscreen that allows users to access to the system’s internal messages and print functions. Messages are created and edited on Squid Ink’s easy-to-use Orion™ PC Software and transferredvia USB, ethernet, wireless, or optional Windows® tablet.
The tablet is ideal for users who want message creation and editing functionality on the production floor. For larger applications, an unlimited number of CoPilot Max printing systems can be connected via ethernet or wireless network and controlled through one central Orion PC.



CoPilot Max utilizes Squid Ink’s revolutionary active ink system, allowing users the ability to tilt or rotate the printhead in any direction without making height adjustments to the ink supply. The system prints hi-resolution characters, razor-sharp text, scannable bar codes and great looking logos at up to 360 dpi. Squid Ink’s proven library of inks for porous substrates offers ultra-low maintenance performance, eliminating the need for auto-priming functions and offering better ink utilization than competitive systems.



The CoPilot Max is designed to meet the harsh demands of your applications. The printer features a durable touchscreen, industrial strength printhead construction, and simple active ink delivery. You can be confident that CoPilot Max’s rugged design will withstand the most abusive industrial environments while providing superior quality print.
The CoPilot also features a large 500ml snap-in cartridge, allowing users the ability to swap ink cartridges in a matter of seconds. The generous ink volume, quick-change ink cartridge, and user-friendly touchscreen design allows users to keep their line running, reducing downtime and maximizing ROI.



The CoPilot Max lets users meet the GS1 barcode specification for less. CoPilot Max consumable costs are typically 1/10 of the cost of paper labels, and eliminate pre-printed cartons and SKUs of label inventory. Any way you look at it, Squid Ink’s CoPilot Max provides users with an affordable
solution to meet their ink jet coding needs.
