EBS 260

Print anywhere, on virtually anything
The EBS-260 Handjet can be used to print on virtually any surface with a print height range from 9 to 57mm. Porous and non-porous surfaces can be printed with a choice of five inks including pigmented, opaque inks for printing high-contrast marks onto dark surfaces.
Complex print messages including up to 5 lines of text, date, time, counters, barcodes, graphics and scanned-in data can be printed in one operation.
The strong Li-Ion battery will print for 16 hours and takes 5 hours to charge from completely empty. A comprehensive range of accessories is available, including printing guides to allow printing on awkward-shaped products, narrow products and soft materials.
Concrete
Most precast and prestressed concrete products cannot be printed with an inline printing process, leaving few options to mark products in a professional manner. Stencil printing is the preferred option for many producers but the process is time-consuming, inconsistent and costly.
Variable data such as counters and date codes also cannot be printed automatically with stencils. The EBS-260 Handjet is ideally suited to printing on concrete products giving a fast, industrial and professional solution for virtually any concrete product.
Plastics
Rigid and flexible plastic products including pipes, IBCs, drums, cans, poly-woven bags, sacks and shrink-film can be easily printed. Pipes from 25mm diameter upwards can be printed using the adjustable pipe adapter which can also be used to print around drums and barrels.
Metals
Permanent, fast-dry inks can be used to print onto bare, coated and painted metals. For dark surfaces, pigmented white, yellow and blue inks provide good contrast. Text can be printed vertically in tower orientation – frequently used when marking stillages and vertical pipes. Sequential numbers can be printed in normal orientation or in tower orientation. For quick operation, magnetic guides are available. Metal pipes down to 25mm diameter can be marked using the pipe adapter to ensure print is kept straight.
Timber
Most types of timber products can be easily printed including rough-sawn timber, plywood, chipboard, OSB and MDF. Shipping symbols, ISPM15 marks, text and logos can be printed onto plain, treated or painted products. Printed marks have extremely high UV resistance and are not affected by weather conditions. Damp timber products can be printed without ink spreading. The print density can be changed via the touch screen to accommodate different grain textures.
Cardboard and Paper
Plain and printed card and paper products can be printed with text, logos, barcodes and 2D codes. Up to five lines of text can be printed in one operation giving a professional result. Filled bags can be printed using a handheld printing guide offered up to the bag. The printer guide wheels run along the guide rather than the uneven bag surface, allowing consistent print. The integrated laser pointer indicates the print position to help with aligning the printer which allows accurate printing into confined spaces.
