Controller that supports up to 4 printheads. It is very compact and can be mounted on any flat surface. An interesting alternative to the X4JET, but designed with integration in mind. It is more economical than the X4JET.
Connect any type of Mark-o-Print printhead to your controller. Whether it's TIJ (Thermal Inkjet) technology from HP® or Funai® or Piezoelectric technology form Trident® or Xaar®, the choice is yours to make and thus you can benefit from a wider pool of different ink types, in many colors and for any kind of surface.
The system includes the software to create texts and start print jobs, manage configurations and monitor all the controllers in your factory. With no extra cost at all! Know more at iDesign.
Four Times the Potential
You can connect up to four printheads to the controller. Increase the print height by four times, print in both sides of the same product or you can even print on two production lines.
Control 2 Conveyors at the Same Time
You can control two production lines. Each printhead can print on products that travel on different conveyor belts. The printheads can be printing distinct texts and use completely different print parameters, such as the print speed or the print delay (distance of the printed text to the edge of the product). You can connect two product sensors and two encoders to the system.
High-Quality Prints at Incredible High-Speeds
Print in high resolutions to obtain impressive and sharp texts with smooth outlines without aliasing effects whatsoever. And you certainly will not need to slow down the velocity of your production line conveyor, because the system can reach unbelievable print speeds.
Directly Change Settings and Start Prints
You can perform tasks such as changing configurations, select the text and start the print job after typing in the variables directly on the controller. The high-resolution OLED screen shows animated icons and it is very easy to navigate through the menus with the iLogik button. A short click to enter and confirm changes and holding the button a little longer cancels and goes back to the menu above. Turning the button, you can change the values very quickly and intuitively, even when you need to input text. You will only believe how easy it is when you try it.
Design Texts at Your PC
Create print texts comfortably at the PC using the iDesign software and transmit them easily to the controller.
Make Simple or Complex Print Texts
The controller has an internal clock so that you can print dates and expiration dates automatically. Besides that, you can put text with any font and style, barcodes, images and many more things. Learn about everything you can do by visiting the iDesign software page.
Barcodes that are Always Readable
Use a shaft encoder to always keep the system synchronized with the effective conveyor speed and print 1D and 2D barcodes on any surface. It is possible to enable and configure a barcode correction algorithm that predicts the ink overflowing outside the intended boundaries on materials where the ink smudges, and shaves off certain pixels. The results are incredible and it really works!
Send and Receive
Transfer print texts and files such as fonts and images, from the PC to the controller or import them from the controller to the PC. You can do the communication using any connection type: USB (using a cable or stick), Ethernet or RS232 (requires adaptor cable).
With IP40 protection, these controllers are very sturdy and reliable, with lifespans that go over 15 years. And if you pick a TIJ (Thermal Inkjet) printhead with technology from HP® or Funai®, you can say goodbye to clogs, cleaning and maintenance tasks. When you change the cartridge, you get brand new nozzles again.
Where You Think It's Best
You can mount the controller on any flat surface without needing any additional mounting brackets. With DIN Rail for standard mounting on PLC racks.
Cost per Print is Almost Zero and Without Interruptions
A single cartridge can easily last for tenths or even hundreds of thousands of prints and a bottle lasts for much longer. Surely, it all depends on the kind of text that you want to print, the configurations and ink type, but normally the costs per prints are a tiny fraction of a cent. Few cartridge changes are needed and, if you use a printhead with redundant Non-Stop Printing technology, it is possible to change the cartridge without having to stop the production line and no product passes without being marked. There are also ink supplying tanks available for cartridges, which are connected with a tube to keep the cartridge always at full capacity.
Know the exact ink level in the cartridges at any time. Besides informing the controller about the ink level, the printhead also sends cartridge data to the controller, to configure the print parameters automatically depending on the ink type that is being used.
Have Full Print Control
You can print on products that travel from the left to the right or from the right to the left, by changing a simple configuration. Choose the resolution, the speed, the zoom and the orientation (normal, upside down or mirrored). The printheads have two nozzle rows (A and B) and you can control how to use them. In the normal mode, the controller alternates between the two rows (A~B). If a row has defective nozzles, you can choose to exclusively use the other row. When using a shaft encoder to have a precise control of the print speed, you can opt to use both rows at the same time (A+B) to obtain even darker print results.
The controller includes 3-color warning LEDs and shows status messages on the screen. You can also connect an optional alarm lamp (with or without buzzer) to the controller.
Quiet and Energy Efficient
This system consumes less energy than a computer and does not have any fans, which makes it completely quiet, not to mention that the internal components are protected from dust accumulation.
The Integrator's Paradise
The controller allows several input and output signals, so that you can synchronize the system with your production line. The input signals are configurable to work in PNP or NPN using the iDesign software. As inputs, you can send signals to: invert the print direction, rotate the print 180 degrees, stop the print (does not print while the signal is active), pre-warm the cartridge, change the text being printed (switch between 4 texts), among others. As for the outputs, you can know if the tank has low ink, if the tank is empty, if the system is green (ok), if the system has warnings, if the system is in error and if the system is ready to print or a print was triggered.
Approved by Programmers
The communication with the controllers is completely clear. The saved texts (the "labels" that are printed directly on the products) are pure text files that can be read and modified in any programming language. The format of the commands for communication and for text creation ("labels") are all well-documented and we can provide such documentation. Dedicated software can be developed to send or receive texts and configurations and to start print jobs using a network connection or USB/RS232 communication.
Approved by System Integrators
With the Weber® policy for Global Export, the system integrator companies can export our inkjet systems as part of a bigger system and the final user gets all the technical support in the destination country, performed by the local distributor of that said country, all completely transparent and without additional costs. All that a system integrator must do is mention that the system is for resale and when the destination country is known, inform us about it so that we can proceed with the transfer of responsibility of the system to the local distributor.
