Reduced costs, maintenance
The Videojet 1610 Dual Head leverages the exclusive Smart Cartridge™ fluid system featured on all printers in the Videojet 1000 Line. By reading the embedded microchip, the printer identifies whether compatible fluid has been installed to prevent errors in ink types or switching make-up and ink fluids. Saving time and money, the Smart Cartridge fluid system is designed to drain completely, wasting no residual fluids. The needle-and-septum design eliminates the need for operators to pour ink, preventing fluid spillage and waste.
The integrated core consolidates the printer's key ink system components into one part and requires preventive maintenance only every 12,000 hours for heavy-duty applications. Core changeout is simple and mess-free and is designed to be changed out quickly and easily. A countdown meter offers easy monitoring of time remaining before the core must be changed.
