Videojet 1660 continuous inkjet printer



Videojet 1660 continuous inkjet printer

The 1660 small character inkjet coder is engineered to deliver increased uptime, reduce cost of ownership and enhance profitability in high-speed applications.

When it comes to uptime and availability in high-speed, challenging environments, nothing beats the 1660. The Long Life Core™ technology offers five years of operation between planned wear parts replacement (2), delivering maintenance predictability and lower cost of ownership.

Advanced on-board Productivity Tools and built-in Code Assurance software help minimize planned and unplanned downtime, reduce coding errors and optimize Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).

Videojet 1660 continuous inkjet printer Features

Speed without compromising quality:

  • Dynamic Calibration™ adjusts jetting parameters automatically to help ensure high quality print • Print from 1 to 5 lines of text at high speeds: o Single line max speed = 293 m/min (960 ft/min) o Dual line max speed = 146 m/min (480 ft/min) o Tri-line max speed = 81 m/min (265 ft/min) Engineered for extended runs; Uptime Advantage via:.
  • CleanFlow™ technology resists ink buildup that can cause ordinary inkjet printers to shut down • Long Life CoreTM technology delivers five years of guaranteed operation between planned wear parts replacement (1).
  • 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 No mess, no waste fluid delivery: .
  • Make-up consumption as low as 2.4 ml/hour.
  • Smart Cartridge™ fluid delivery system to virtually eliminate spills and help ensure the correct fluids are being used On-board Code Assurance to help prevent coding mistakes:.
  • Advanced software minimizes and mistake-proofs operator inputs to the coding and marking process to help reduce errors.
  • Operator inputs are governed by rules which simplifies choices via field prompts, drop-down menus, calendar displays and predefined formats to help ensure correct entries Built-in Productivity tools to keep your lines operational:.
  • Bright, 264 mm (10.4 in) touchscreen interface that provides real-time fluid levels, maintenance alerts, print jobs and other operational information.
  • Instant fault information is displayed to get your printer and line running again – fast.
  • Drill down into Printer Availability data to discover technical and operational causes of downtime, get to the root cause of downtime events and fix them for good (1) Parts-only limited warranty prorated for the remaining life at time of warranty replacement
