The printer is designed to provide a smarter way to print, where predictability and productivity can drive lower costs over the lifetime of the continuous inkjet technology.
Using predictive capabilities including an industry-first ink build-up sensor, the
1860 continuous inkjet printer (CIJ) provides up to eight hours advance notice of the most common potential fault conditions that can impact on line uptime.
This helps boost uptime performance that can increase productivity and lower costs. The new printer utilises over 50 real time sensors to continuously monitor 150+ key indicators of printer performance; providing expert diagnostics, analytics, and guidance.
Anthony Blencowe, global business unit director at Videojet, said: “The predictive capabilities of the 1860, along with the unique nozzle system, provide a CIJ that redefines uptime with enhanced print quality and line speed capabilities. The ability of VideojetConnect Remote Service to reduce downtime and allow for manufacturers to focus on their core production activities can drive significant productivity gains.”
He added that the improved maintenance and cleaning procedures could result in a typical reduction in unplanned downtime by over 80%.
