it's only an imitation!

Black Box



A high resolution, small character thermal inkjet printer utilizing HP® printing technology. The printer portion of the BlackBox Series can be configured to include from 1-12 print heads.  Intelligent ink management allows you to utilize any TIJ ink and SI cartridge while maximizing the inherent qualities of each ink. Inks are available for a wide variety of substrates from porous to non-porous, including plastics, metals and even glass. Our intelligent features allow you to monitor ink consumption from 42 ml cartridges – 1000 ml bulk ink systems.

Vision Inspection


The BlackBox Series can include either a smart sensor to detect print presence / perform pattern matching, or a smart camera for OCV print character and code verification. You can choose the level of inspection that is required to meet your specifications. Our vision inspection equipment & software assumes all scans are “bad” until they are confirmed “good” for a failsafe inspection. Line control can be included to initiate an alarm or reject based on your SOP.

Track & Trace


Nutec’s Track & Trace software can be included. Our Track & Trace software has been proven in the field since 2007.  The program has successfully been used to adjudicate cases of diversion in a court of law.  Our unique software, which is based on the parent child relationship, is the only software that has successfully completed the entire loop of tracking a product in the field.

Quality Assurance


The BlackBox Series can be configured with cheQAssure, Nutec’s patented software suite. A software suite for batch verification of GS1 and non-GS1 barcodes.
