Videojet releases new 1280 CIJ printer
Videojet Technologies, a global leader in coding, marking and printing solutions, has announced the launch of its new Videojet 1280 CIJ printer. Built on over 40 years of expertise in the continuous inkjet coding market, the Videojet 1280 is the latest printer in the Videojet CIJ range.
The Videojet 1280 incorporates the proven Videojet printhead and fluid system technology, which Videojet says can provide stable performance and reliability across a broad range of operating conditions, including variable volumes and production runs. The 1280 can reportedly remain unused for up to 14 days and still provide excellent print quality on start-up without the need for additional printer intervention.
Engineered to help reduce unplanned printer downtime, the 1280 features Videojet Dynamic Calibration. The printer constantly monitors environmental conditions and automatically adjusts jetting parameters to help maintain superior print quality and maximise uptime. The 1280 is also available with the Positive Air printhead option that requires no plant air and allows for long runs between printhead cleaning.
If an issue does occur, operators can recover quickly in many cases with on-board ‘How To’ videos from Videojet. In addition, Videojet offers an optional VideojetConnect Remote Service, where operators can gain instant access to the world’s largest network of CIJ experts, connecting the Videojet technician directly to the production line for immediate assistance.
With up to 95% reduction in time taken to replace maintenance components versus legacy Videojet CIJ models, the Videojet 1280 is reportedly simple to use and maintain. Additionally, manufacturers can benefit from only five minutes of user-performed annual preventive maintenance, either every year, or when the printer reaches 3,000 hours, whichever occurs first.
Videojet’s 1280 also features the no mess, no waste, no mistake Videojet SmartCartridge system that drains fluids from the cartridge and offers additional protection against leakage during transport and handling.
“The Videojet 1280 has been built on our proven and innovative continuous inkjet technology, offering virtually error-proof operation and an easy-to-use printer,” said Mithun Ramachandran, CIJ business unit manager at Videojet Technologies.
“The SIMPLICiTY interface greatly reduces operator printer interactions to help eliminate potential user errors through an intuitive, tablet-inspired 8” touchscreen interface. Combined with one, reliable and easy-to-replace Videojet SmartCell service module, the Videojet 1280 CIJ printer delivers class-leading reliability and easy usability.”
