The new Videojet® 1610 small character continuous ink jet printer from Videojet Technologies Inc. provides superior uptime in high-speed applications, enabling greater customer productivity. The Videojet 1610 printer is the third release in the Videojet 1000 Line of ink jet printers and can print up to five lines of high-resolution print at speeds up to 960 feet per minute. “The Videojet 1610 is designed for printing codes up to 24 hours per day, 7 days per week,” says Kelly Becker, Videojet continuous ink jet product manager. “With around-the-clock coding and extended run time before needed maintenance, the Videojet 1610 is the perfect solution for high-speed, large-output production lines, such as those in the beverage, canning and food industries.”

The printer includes IP65 washdown and dust protection that provides superior environmental protection with no plant air required. Additionally, the vapor recovery system on the Videojet 1610 reduces solvent consumption and allows for longer runs before fluid change.

Reduced costs, maintenance
The Videojet 1610 features a new clean flow printhead design that provides maximum uptime. By reducing ink buildup that can cause traditional ink jet printers to shut down, the clean flow printhead delivers less maintenance and longer runs without intervention.

Like the other printers within the 1000 Line, the Videojet 1610 leverages the exclusive Smart Cartridge™ fluid system. By reading the embedded microchip, the printer identifies whether compatible fluid has been installed to prevent errors in ink types or switching make-up and ink fluids. Saving time and money, the Smart Cartridge fluid system is designed to drain completely, wasting no residual fluids. The needle-and-septum design eliminates the need for operators to pour ink, preventing fluid spillage and waste.

The integrated core consolidates the printer’s key ink system components into one part and requires preventive maintenance only every 12,000 hours, or approximately 18 months, for heavy-duty applications. Core changeout is simple and mess-free and is designed to be customer-replaceable in 30 minutes without requiring a visit from a trained technician. A countdown meter offers easy monitoring of time remaining before the core must be changed.

The Videojet 1610 is easier to integrate into existing systems with advanced connectivity technology, including its USB port, which allows for hot swapping print jobs and backing up messages. The convenience of off-site control and diagnostics via Ethernet capability through CLARiSOFT™ and CLARiNET™ software enables simple, seamless real-time message changes. Troubleshooting is a simple matter of pressing a button on the operator interface; a pop-up window assists the operator in assessing the issue and resolving it.
