Videojet Technologies Inc., a world-leading manufacturer of coding, printing and laser marking products, fluids, and accessories for the product identification industry, has released its new Videojet 1610 small character continuous ink jet printer.
Providing superior uptime in high-speed applications, the 1610 enables greater customer productivity, and can print up to five lines of high-resolution print at speeds up to 960 feet per minute.
Offering 24/7 coding opportunities and an extended run time before needed maintenance, the Videojet 1610 is the perfect solution for high-speed, large-output production lines, such as those in the beverage, canning and food industries.
The printer includes IP65 washdown and dust protection that provides superior environmental protection with no plant air required. Additionally, the vapor recovery system on the Videojet 1610 reduces solvent consumption and allows for longer runs before fluid change.
The Videojet 1610 features a new clean flow printhead design that provides maximum uptime as it reduces ink buildup that can cause traditional ink jet printers to shut down.
The printer utilizes the exclusive Smart Cartridge fluid system. The printer reads an embedded microchip and identifies whether compatible fluid has been installed to prevent errors in ink types or switching make-up and ink fluids.
The Videojet 1610 is easier to integrate into existing systems with advanced connectivity technology, including its USB port, which allows for hot swapping print jobs and backing up messages. The convenience of off-site control and diagnostics via Ethernet capability through Clarisoft and Clarinet software enables simple, seamless real-time message changes. Troubleshooting is a simple matter of pressing a button on the operator interface; a pop-up window assists the operator in assessing the issue and resolving it.
