Currently, operators can quickly design a four-line message. A drop-down menu is provided to select production/expiration date, lot number, counter or external data. Once selected, the complete row will automatically change based on the type of message. Operators can instantly see what they are designing using the preview. When completed, operators can adjust the print parameters based on the production line and send the message to Hx Nitro for printing.

In designing Lot number, the lot number container can be selected from Simple Message Editor while the information can be placed at the lot number section in the Hx Manager monitoring page.

After completing the message and sending it to Hx Nitro, operators can check the approximate ink consumption. This will provide an estimate number of print per cartridge based on the designed message and the print parameters. Print parameter configuration is found in the same page below the message editor.
