IP-Jet Washdown Printer
The IP-JET HP Mk2 inkjet printer was specially developed for use in harsh environments with high exposure to dust and moisture. Unlike many other printers on the market, the printhead has excellent protection and requires no cover or dismantling during washdown. This solution is particularly well suited for use in Food & Beverage and in industries such as plastics, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. The compact system combines the printhead and controller in one.
An inkjet printer tolerant against dust and moisture
The sealed enclosure and waterproof interface prevent moisture ingress and dust particle contamination. The unit is also powered via a special mains power unit with a waterproof M8 plug. The external connections have plug-in connectors with IP67 class protection.
Proven HP inkjet printing technology
With the latest in Hewlett Packard printing technology, the system will print text, barcodes, 2D codes, best-before data, batch numbersetc. up to 12.5 mm high and with resolutions up to 600 dpi. The water- and solvent-based inks used by the system open the door to many applications: paper, cartons, varnished surfaces, foils and plastics are printed with highly legible and permanent print. An ideal application for IP-Jet is its integration on Form Fill Seal machines to print on rolls of plastic film. The system is operated via only 3 buttons with LED status lights, for ease of operation and user friendliness.
SmartCard: intelligent cartridge monitoring
Intelligent SmartCard cartridge monitoring ensures consistently good print results. It will identify the current type of ink and adjusts the relevant ink parameters automatically. The SmartCard will also capture and store the specific ink fill level. The printing system detects used cartridges and reports current ink fill levels to the controller. This eliminates unexpected production downtimes, allowing the operator to arrange for replacements in good time. Quick and easy with a single hand movement – thanks to the patented Click’n’Print cartridge holder!
