Videojet® 1620

The Videojet 1620 is engineered to deliver superior uptime in high speed applications for greater productivity.

The Videojet 1620 Continuous Ink Jet printer is designed for more demanding applications including high speed applications and around-the-clock operation. Patented CleanFlowTM and Dynamic CalibrationTM technologies allow for longer runs without intervention. The 1620 is the standard for high throughput coding applications in production environments around the world.

Uptime Advantage

  • CleanFlowTM technology resists ink buildup that can cause
    ordinary ink jet printers to shut down
  • Long run time between preventive maintenance; up to 14,000
    hour core life
  • Internal pump means no external air, minimizing potential for
    contaminants to enter ink stream
  • Auto cleaning printhead for fast start-ups, even after extended

Built-in productivity

  • Dynamic CalibrationTM adjusts jetting parameters automatically
    to help ensure high quality print
  • Print 1 to 5 lines of print for a range of coding needs
  • Smart CartridgeTM fluid delivery system to virtually eliminate spills
    and help ensure the correct fluids are being used

Code Assurance

  • Multiple password protected access levels to system control
    menus help avoid unintentional input errors
  • Storable print messages with pre-set and calculated fields
    minimize required user input
  • Easy Videojet CLARiSOFT and CLARiSUITE integration allows for
    remote control of advanced code functionality

Simple usability

  • Bright display with WYSIWYG and function keys for easy operation
  • Store up to 250 complex messages for easy recall – store even more messages using a standard USB memory stick
  • User levels to separate operation from installation and
