All-in-one printhead with a built-in controller. It is very compact and has a basic user interface. It was thought for integration and to be controlled remotely via PC or an automatism.
No More Cables Between Printhead and Controller
This printhead is completely independent. With its focus on integration, the interaction with the operator is minimal: only the ink tank needs to be refilled from time to time. The text selection and configuration changes are done remotely via PC with the iDesign software or automatisms. Even so, it still has three buttons that allow the execution of the most frequent tasks.
With Piezoelectric technology from Trident, these printheads can produce quality prints and are recommended to those who print a lot, given that the price per liter of ink is very low.
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.
Print texts with heights up to 50 or 100mm with a single printhead, which makes everything easier and avoids joining problems when the alignments are not perfect.
Directly Change Settings and Start Prints
Even though it was designed to be managed remotely, the X1JET MX still has 3 buttons that make possible, among other tasks, the selection of one of nine available texts, the start or stop of the print job and the change of the delay (to move the text closer or farther away from the edge of the product).
Local Control with optional HMI
By connecting an optional HMI, you open up new possibilities. 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 it using an USB stick, an Ethernet connection or via RS232 (requires adaptor cable).
Side or Top Printing
You can fixate the printhead using the Top version available with several hose lengths and a special bracket for printing on top of products, or using the Compact or Vario versions for side printing, without the hose. The Vario version has an articulation that allows a slight turning of the printhead for small adjustments of its alignment to the product.
Cost per Print is Almost Zero and Without Interruptions
A single bottle can easily last for hundreds of thousands of prints and contains around ten times more ink than a cartridge at a much more affordable price. 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.
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. You can also connect an optional alarm lamp (with or without buzzer) to the controller.
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 printhead, 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.
Pick Your Version
If you do not need every single feature, you can obtain a better price by choosing a more basic version. And the best is that you can, at any moment, do an upgrade to a higher version. You only need to tell us the serial number or MAC address of the system and we will send you an activation code to unlock your controller.
