In finer print
The low-maintenance cartridges can be changed easily and quickly
MULTIVAC Marking & Inspection GmbH & Co. KG has expanded its printer portfolio with the addition of a new versatile MULTIVAC TIJ thermal inkjet printer for use in both direct web printers and
label dispensers. In the thermal inkjet process, water in the ink is heated—causing tiny bubbles that squeeze the ink drops from the nozzle. In contrast to continuous inkjet printers, TIJ printers operate with printer cartridges, in which the printing heads are integrated. The low-maintenance cartridges can be changed easily and quickly, and are capable of achieving up to 600-dpi print resolution in high-accuracy
printing of extremely small text and compact barcodes, according to the company. The new and versatile TIJ printer is available in the IP 65 version as an option, as well as in a zero-downtime mode—operating with two printing heads.
