PRODIGIT 70 LARGE CHARACTER DOD PRINTING
ProDigit 70 is a large character inkjet printer for industrial use. It is fast drying and oil-based case coding machine suitable for printing on porous materials such as corrugated cases and coding cartons. Replacing expensive labeling solutions to print barcodes, logos, batch number, and external data directly onto porous substrates. With its modular design, the PD 70 controller can work with two separate print engines enabling two-sided printing on cases or extending height up to 140mm for one-side printing.
Ideal Coding Solution on Porous Substrates
Secondary packaging such as corrugated cartons, which are porous in nature, are perfect canvas for ProDigit 70 large character inkjet printer. Using oil-based ink that is fade-proof, PD 70 can print directly onto corrugated packaging materials for various industries such as food & beverage, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical. The robust and industrial design enables it to work even on the harsh environment of ceramics packaging industry.
High-resolution Large Character Case Coding & Marking
ProDigit 70 large character inkjet printer is capable of printing high-resolution (maximum 180 dpi) on a maximum speed of 58 meters per minute with 70mm print height onto corrugated substrates. The prints are long-lasting and fade-proof even on prolonged exposure to sunlight or moisture.
How it works…
There are two kinds of inkjet printing technology – Continuous Inkjet (CIJ) Printing and Drop-on-Demand (DOD) inkjet printing. Maplejet ProDigit works with DOD through Xaar Printhead Technology.
Under DOD falls three classes; valve jet – the flow of intermittent ink droplets are controlled by a valve; thermal inkjet – the use of tiny heating element to force the ink out of the nozzle; and piezoelectric – a charge is generated when force is applied onto a certain material producing precise amount of droplets required for printing. Maplejet ProDigit large character inkjet printer uses piezo inkjet technology.
Piezoelectric DOD printing uses piezoelectric technology as actuators for drop ejection. The ink vibration at the nozzle openings is precisely controlled by the actuator once it receives the signal resulting to a multi-sized droplet ejection; thus, delivering outstanding print quality to a range of different substrates.
