Designed with new features to promote productivity and profitability, the Videojet 1650 ink jet printers provide metrics to measure as well as the tools to measure and improve uptime. Simple to operate, include Code Assurance features to help reduce coding errors and ensure the right code is printed on the right products. With an innovative design to provide customers with high availability for production lines and the right metrics to track it, the printers reduce unplanned downtime through features like the patented CleanFlow printhead and Dynamic Calibration ink flow system. Designed to resist ink build-up that can lead to a shutdown, both the 1550 and 1650 possess an auto-cleaning function, meaning there are less frequent printhead cleanings and positive flow of filtered air for more reliable, clear and consistent codes, even at the end of long production runs. The printhead design and long-lasting core minimizes planned downtime due to long intervals – up to 14,000 hours – between planned routine maintenance cycles.
