The new InteliJet-ci small-character continuous ink jet (CIJ) printer has a low-maintenance, airtight, automatic nozzle sealing system. The closed-circuit ink system prevents drying in the printhead even after a long-term shutdown. Additionally, it requires no external air and has an integrated graphic, font and bar code editor. Suitable for coding many package substrates in the food and beverage markets, the InteliJet-ci offers easy operation and intuitive navigation through its Windows CE color touchscreen interface. Water- and dust-proof models are available, too.
