The Videojet 1280 continuous inkjet printer (the 1280) can remain unused for up to 14 days and can still provide excellent print quality on start-up without the need for additional printer intervention.
Engineered to help reduce unplanned printer downtime, the 1280 features Videojet Dynamic Calibration. The printer constantly monitors environmental conditions and automatically adjusts jetting parameters to help maintain superior print quality and maximize uptime. The 1280 is available with an optional dry air kit for very harsh and humid environments.
If an issue does occur, on-board, easy-to-understand ‘how to’ videos, guide operators through basic tasks without the need for extensive training. In addition, optional VideojetConnect Remote Service offers remote servicing capabilities at the touch of a button. Operators can gain instant access to the world’s largest network of CIJ experts, connecting the Videojet technician directly to the production line for immediate assistance. This virtual access can help manufacturers recover quicker and deliver increased uptime while minimizing the need for in-house maintenance.
With a time reduction of up to 95% to replace maintenance components compared to legacy Videojet CIJ models, the Videojet 1280 is simple to use and maintain.
Featuring the Videojet SIMPLICiTY interface, the 1280’s tablet-inspired, 8-inch touchscreen display is designed to greatly reduce operator printer interactions and help eliminate potential user errors. This Code Assurance capability means manufacturers do not have to be CIJ experts to manage their day-to-day CIJ operations. Instead, manufacturers can focus on their primary tasks of running the production line, knowing that the Videojet 1280 will continue to put quality codes on their products with minimal operator interaction.
With the 1280, manufacturers can benefit from only five minutes of user-performed annual preventive maintenance, either every year or when the printer reaches 3,000 hours, whichever occurs first. With predictable preventive maintenance, the 1280 can help to eliminate many of the surprises that can cause unscheduled downtime.
In addition, the 1280 features the “no mess, no waste, no mistake” Videojet SmartCartridge system that drains fluids from the cartridge and offers additional protection against leakage during transport and handling.
