Videojet® 1710 Industrial Inkjet Printer

Continuous Inkjet Printer with Pigmented Inks for High Contrast Coding
For applications that require easily readable variable data codes on dark or difficult to mark materials, Videojet Technologies Inc. has designed the Videojet 1710 small character inkjet coder.

The printer uses high-contrast, pigmented inks to create bright, clean codes on surfaces for which dye-based inks are not effective, such as colored glass, rubber tubing, plastic cabling and dark paperboard. It is capable of printing a variety of fonts in multiple languages, as well as linear bar codes, 2D DataMatrix codes, custom logos and graphics.

Benefits

Print from 1 to 5 lines of text at high speeds:

  • Single line max speed = 271 m/min (888 ft/min)
  • Dual line max speed = 122 m/min (400 ft/min)
  • Tri-line max speed = 67 m/min (221 ft/min)

The unique fluid system assures proper dispersion of pigments while printing, or when idle for long periods of time

Dynamic Calibration™ adjusts jetting parameters automatically to ensure high quality print

Engineered for extended runs; Uptime Advantage via:

CleanFlow™ technology resists ink buildup that can cause ordinary inkjet printers to shut down

Long run time between preventive maintenance; Up to 4,000 hours or 12 months (whichever occurs first) core life

Internal pump means no external air, minimizing potential for contaminants to enter ink stream

Auto cleaning printhead for fast start-ups even after extended shutdowns

New conical ink reservoir minimizes natural effects of pigment settling

No mess, no waste fluid delivery:

Innovative fluid management system simply and reliably delivers ink to the products you need coded without significant operator intervention

Smart Cartridge™ fluid delivery system to virtually eliminate spills and help ensure the correct fluids are being used

Simple Usability via Videojet standard CIJ interface:

Bright display with WYSIWYG and function keys for easy operation

User levels to separate operation from installation and maintenance

Prompted user fields to help reduce coding errors
