Videojet 1710 Ink Jet Printer
Available from Videojet Technologies Inc.
The Videojet® 1710 small character continuous ink jet printer is designed for applications that require easily readable variable codes on dark or difficult to mark materials. The printer uses high-contrast, pigmented inks to create bright, clean codes on surfaces for which dye-based inks are not effective, such as colored glass, rubber tubing, plastic cabling and dark paperboard. The Videojet 1710 printer can apply up to five lines of high-resolution print at speeds up to 888 feet per minute. It is capable of printing a variety of fonts in multiple languages, as well as linear bar codes, 2D DataMatrix codes, custom logos and graphics.
The heart of the 1710 printer is the innovative “Core” which was designed specifically for pigmented inks. Patented technology ensures that pigments are continuously kept in suspension, preventing the clogging that is often associated with pigmented printers. The result is an industry-leading 4,000-hour core life, delivering the longest and most predictable time period before preventive maintenance for pigmented ink jet printers.
The 1710 features Videojet’s Advanced Clean Flow printhead design that maximizes uptime by reducing the frequency of printhead cleanings, even with the toughest pigment inks. The printer’s Smart Cartridge™ fluid system confirms that compatible fluid has been installed to prevent errors in ink types or switching make-up and ink fluids. It is also designed to drain completely, wasting no residual fluids.
