In July 2013, Sumitomo Electric Interconnect Products, Inc. announced technical support would no longer be available for the SumiMark II Marking System.
Due to advancements in technology and the desire to provide our customers with the best heat shrink identification solutions possible, we are now announcing the discontinuation of I-buttons being placed on SumiMark product spools. I-buttons are necessary for the operation of the SumiMark II Marking System. This change will take effect January 1, 2016.
To ensure you are able to continue enjoying all the benefits of SumiMark products, we encourage you to upgrade to our latest SumiMark IV 300 DPI Marking System. The SumiMark IV 300 DPI utilizes many of the same consumable items as the SumiMark II, but has significant improvements such as USB and Ethernet interfaces, network printing capabilities and comes with our new Sumilabel software which offers much greater flexibility than SumiMark software. The SumiMark IV 300 DPI also features many mechanical upgrades which provide easier, faster and quieter operation - all in a compact frame!
