Twin Nozzle & Double Speed For Superior Performance
The traceability requirements of packaging creates a need for more and more information, which has to be tagged – best before date, use-by date or date of filling. Codes for fish and meat which include freezing period and fishing zone pose a challenge for printers.
Hitachi’s Continuous Ink Jet Printer with innovative Twin nozzle can print multiple lines of code to match traceability requirements without production line complexity or speed reduction. The Twin Jet contains a circulatory system to provide two nozzles at the same time. The result is outstanding, high-speed printing underlining Hitachi’s commitment to quality.
Hitachi offers unique ink drop management ensuring all information is clearly printed. Both nozzles can be operated independently. Print settings and various font sizes can be adjusted optionally.
Due to the high quantity of available dots per sign, there are many new possibilities to design logos and fonts. The Twin Jet is ideal for customers with high standards in multiline printing at high-speed and complex codes with text, logo and barcode.
The high-speed UX twin series with its uptime benefits and clean operation is also ideal for the dairy industry where short shelf life and focus on hygiene creates additional pressure on packaging requirements.
Twin Specific Features
Two nozzles at one print head realizes double-speed printing, which can track even on a high-speed production line, resulting in high-quality printing regardless of the number of print lines.
Character Stitch Capability
A unique option in the new twin-nozzle printer is the ability to stitch both nozzles together. This results in characters that are bigger and bolder than ever, compared to those printed by individual nozzles. This is particularly useful when character recognition is needed at a distance from the product.
Flexible 8 Line Print
The UX twin print head now offers the abilty to produce 8 lines of text by combining two individual nozzles into one, compact design. In additon, by utilizing Hitachi’s first on the market “interlaced” print control technique, multiple line messages are printed clearly and legibly, further reducing coding errors due to misprint.
Hitachi’s innovative design now produces 64 vertical dots of print, resulting in large, bold characters. This makes the UX twin nozzle printer ideally suited to mark company logos, UL marks, or any other pattern previously unachievable with traditional print heads.
UX – The Heart of Reliability
Increased Ink Integrity
Unlike a gear pump, a diagraphm pump does not shear the ink passing through it. Ink shearing results in lower viscosity and can adversely affect print quality. Hitachi diagraphm pumps provide a consistent supply of ink to the print head.
Designed & Built by Hitachi
The diaphragm pump is the heart of each Hitachi printer. For this reason, Hitachi doesn’t use an off-the-shelf product. Each pump is designed and built by Hitachi to the highest standarts.
Quad Chamber Design
Each pump is designed with four chambers allowing pump load to be distributed. Subsequently, the life span of each printer is significantly improved over single chamber pump designs.
Heavy on Quality
Hitachi diaphragm pumps are one of the heaviest components in each printer. This weight is due to the high-quality components used in the manufacturing of each pump. Quality is never compromised. You create superior products so you should have a partner who does too.
Individual Pump Replacement
By allowing each ultra-reliable pump to be replaced individually, the Total Cost of Ownership for a UX Series printer is minimized.
Easy to Use Interface
The display of our twin-nozzle model utilizes the same, easy-to-use touchscreen incorporated in other UX models. A large 10.4” display, and intuitive parameter illustrations reduce the complexity typically found in traditional small screen printers. In addition, messages can be easily changed in one screen, with a live WYSIWYG display.
Easy Drain Cartridges
Hitachi’s ink cartridges can be easily changed without stopping production. In addition, the unique design facilitates the complete evacuation of fluids, allowing users to take advantage of fluids right to the last drop. Empty cartridges are sealed after removal, eliminating the potential release of hazardous solvents.
Low Total Costs of Ownership
Hitachi’s design faciliates longevity. Each component of our print-head can be replaced individually, thus reducing the need to purchase costly sub-assemblies. In addition, our preventative maintenance items are all replaceable individually, further reducing the unnecessary replacement of complete ink circuits or complete ink cores.
Designed for Harsh Environments
The stainless steel cabinet offers IP-55 allowing wash-down and dust protection. The UX Series Twin nozzle’s protection is the ideal choice for a variety of printing needs.
