Hitachi Ink Jet Printers are high quality, robust printers intended for industrial applications. The printer’s mode of application is based on the Continuous Ink Jet non-contact principle meaning that it ‘throws’ ink on to the surface of any container from a distance. This means the printer can mark any kind of surface regardless if it’s rough or smooth.
Using highly aggressive ink this machine can print on any type of material whether it’s glass, plastic, cardboard etc. Known as setting the industry standard these machines make code dating, product marking and variable printing an affordable and simple option for any business to use whether they are start-ups or require industrial efficiency.
These units normally would sit beside a continuously moving slat conveyor and as containers pass through the photoelectric sensor the coder is triggered to print out one or two lines of text as the container moves past the print head.
