Achieve Consistent And Unmatched Print Quality With Superior Print Head Design

Achieving optimal print quality with small character continuous inkjet printing (CIJ) is a constant endeavor for manufacturers. CIJ printers must be able to deliver precise drop placement at the correct speed. These two elements are significantly impacted by the print head design and fluid management. Read below to understand how the Linx 8900 Series CIJ offers the reliability and quality customers demand.

  • The Linx sealed print head design simply runs cleaner than other CIJ printers. The Linx 8900 Series CIJ printer boasts a unique sealed print head design, setting it apart from its CIJ counterparts. Hermetically sealed and solid-state components combined with a true nozzle-through-gutter autoflush at both start up and shut down enables Linx printers to go 100 starts and stops without needing to clean the print head.
  • The Linx 8900 also measures ink viscosity in the print head. This sets it apart from other CIJ systems that place viscometers in their fluid tanks. A series of sensors in the print head allows the printer to make real-time adjustments to pressure, optimizing the ink speed to ensure precise drop placement. Solvent additions to the ink mixture are introduced only when there has been an increase in pressure over a set amount of time. This process means Linx printers exhibit less solvent consumption than our competitors.

If you need to enhance print quality while managing operational costs, the Linx 8900 Series CIJ printer offers a compelling solution. For further insights into improving your printing capabilities and cost-effectiveness, connect with us today and discover how Linx small character continuous inkjet printing emphasizes high-quality printing, lower operating costs and precision, performance and efficiency.

    Companies rely on engineers or technicians to keep production lines up and running. These job functions are essential to hitting production targets, so it is key that their skill level on equipment is proficient. When making the decision to replace this equipment, the amount of time and money that will have to be invested in training your labor is a major deciding factor.
  • Don’t let fast drying ink slow down your CIJ coding process Posted last year
    Continuous inkjet printers (CIJ) use super-fast drying solvent-based inks. One of the technology challenges presented by these inks is that they aren’t too particular wherethey dry. With CIJ technology, the formation of drops from an inkjet stream creates a mist (or satellite drops) which builds up a layer of ink over time on the components inside the CIJ print head, causing print failure. Routine cleaning of ink with solvent from the components in a print head is required to maintain best print quality and uptime.
