Leibinger JET One industrial inkjet printer
Leibinger’s entry-level JET One is an industrial inkjet printer for marking and coding food packaging, beverages and consumer goods.
It has fixed and variable data such as best-before date, LOT and batch number and graphics. The marking takes place without contact with flying drops of ink, making it suitable for convex and concave, rough and smooth, flat and relief-moulded product surfaces.
Users can print country and industry-specific fonts with a character height of 1.5 to 8 mm in up to two lines. Since the ink dries in less than a second — on plastic, glass, wood, metal, ceramics, technical composites, cardboard and paper alike — the CIJ printer can handle production speeds of up to 268 m/min. Ink consumption is minimal as it can print up to 120 million characters with only 1 L of ink.
The printer has a Sealtronic feature, a nozzle sealing system that keeps the ink fresh during production breaks. If the user switches off the printer, the gutter moves to the nozzle with a spindle drive. Only then does the inkjet turn off. The ink circuit is therefore hermetically sealed.
It features the key interfaces for integration into the company infrastructure: via a product sensor input (PNP/NPN 24 V), an incremental encoder input (TTL 5 V, HTL 24 V, RS 422 5 V), a digital input, three digital outputs and a USB port. The print head can be flexibly positioned due to a 3 m-long umbilical cable — even for overhead applications.
