Superior Coding Ensures Readability and Compliance

The Markem Imaje 5940 G provides coding quality, compliance, operational efficiency and reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) with a sustainable solution.

Proven Code Quality Made Even Better with Intelli'Flow Technology
Intelli'Flow technology keeps the printhead jets clear by preventing ink and dust buildup through an innovative air flow design; additionally, a filtering mechanism prevents air bubbles from forming in the ink during high-speed printing ensuring scannable and well-defined codes.

Highest Quality Codes for GS1-128 Compliance
For C grade barcodes trust our Touch Dry inks that solidify on contact unlike liquid inks that lose resolution by spreading along corrugate fibers. And our exclusive high optical density inks deliver increased contrast on barcodes. A variety of colored inks are available to further emphasize your brand.

Code Verification via Advanced Vision Inspection
You need your coding to be rock-solid reliable. Our proven verification and automated inspection solutions ensure you consistently ship high-quality readable, accurate codes.

Maximize Uptime, Increase Production, Simplify Maintenance

Designed for Serviceability
An average of 15-minutes — setting new standards and driving OEE improvements.

IP54-Rated Controller
Improves dust resistance and performs in tough manufacturing environments. Stainless steel cabinet option available for wet environments to avoid oxidation and rust.

10" Color Touch User Interface
Intuitive menu structure for faster print selection and reduced downtime between jobs.

No Plant Air
Air flow is generated internally rather than requiring external air compressors.

Faster Ramp-Up
Increase production time up to 6.9%. Reduce start-up time by 67% with patented reservoir heating or use the pre-shift automatic start timer.

Boost Productivity
With a 75% larger ink container than most competitors, the 5940 G ensures 43% less operator intervention. There is no need to stop the line to refill ink. Refill on the fly! With no solvents to mix, consumables management is clean and easy.

Greater Automation Provides Efficiency and Data Integrity
The 5940 G supports 1D and 2D scanners for lookup and verification, comes standard with five inputs and five outputs, all programmable. Option to expand to an additional five inputs and five outputs, also all programmable. Can integrate with PLCs and corporate databases.


Worry-Free Code Management
Packaging Intelligence Suite powered by CoLOS provides simple message coding and job creation. Expand your printer's capabilities with additional solutions to drive efficiency and maximize uptime while ensuring your packaging and coding is accurate and traceable.

Environmentally Friendly
Touch Dry inks are free of odors and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), comply with global food packaging guidelines and are supplied in highly recyclable Polypropylene (PP) containers.

Reduced Preprint and Labels
High-resolution inkjet coders reduce your preprinted corrugate case inventory with late-stage customization capabilities. Avoid the use of expensive labels and avoid the disposal of label waste and cores.
