What would you do with 3 months? By Chris Pangallo, CIJ and Laser Product Manager Linx Printing Technologies introduced their latest Continuous Inkjet Printer (CIJ) model 8900 in September of 2015. The new printer reflects the fundamental Linx design philosophies of Ease of Use and Reliability, supported by a hermetically sealed printhead with no moving parts, self-service Easi Change module and new features such as one-touch cartridge refills and a 10” capacitive touch screen with customizable menu. The 8900 introduces a new iteration of Linx Hermetically sealed printhead model MK11. The new design improves upon the already impressive model MK9 design for maximum reliability. Ø The MK11 printhead makes use of Push-pull drop positioning in the deflector fields. o More drop control means better print quality. Ø The MK11 has a unique auto flush process at shut-down, and solvent flush at start-up. o This means a cleaner operation – less downtime. Ø The MK11 introduces a new “figure-8” 2 tube style conduit for maximum support and flexibility o This means reliable performance, even in challenging environments. These improvements have been tested and reveal with typical inks and in typical application environments, customers can expect 100 starts and stops without the need to clean the printhead. Testing actually found 3 months as typical, and in some cases can go up to 6 months. What would you do with the time saved by only having to clean your printhead once every 3 months?
