The Videojet 1580 continuous inkjet (CIJ) printer helps to deliver effortless marking and coding experience with increased uptime and reduced total cost of ownership.  

The new Videojet 1580 CIJ printer is equipped with Videojet OPTIMiZE software for analysing printer performance, operator behavior and environmental parameters to help interactively guide operators on how to correct suboptimal printer usage that could lead to unplanned downtime and adversely impact line productivity or increase total cost of ownership. Operators are assisted in their printer interactions with embedded guided “how to” videos.

"Manufacturers can avoid unplanned downtime and improve their total cost of ownership through hints and tips based on current inkjet printer operations," said Anthony Blencowe, Global Business Unit Director at Videojet. "The Videojet OPTIMiZE tool offers manufacturers suggestions on how to improve operator interaction with the printer, environmental conditions surrounding the printer, as well as provide guidance on printer maintenance."

Cartridge is loaded onto the Videojet 1580 continuous inkjet (CIJ) printer.

In many production environments, line downtime is often caused by operator errors, rather than machine malfunctions. The Videojet SIMPLICiTY™ user interface is designed to reduce operator printer interactions, helping to eliminate potential user errors through an easy to operate, tablet-inspired 10-inch touchscreen display. This advanced Code Assurance capability offers intelligent message creation functionality, and customisable interfaces with built-in wizards that allow operators to only see the options they need, reducing the opportunity for operator-induced errors.

Runs 8 hours even after cartridge is empty

A built-in make-up reserve tank enables Videojet 1580 to run for a minimum 8 hours after the cartridge is empty, providing operators with ample notice to replace it during normal line changeovers or shutdowns. Field-proven perforated nozzle with optional Videojet CleanFlow™ technology, requires less frequent cleaning and delivers longer runs and consistent print performance. Operators can perform routine maintenance with easy-to-change Videojet SmartCell™ color-coded printer components, that are engineered for predictable replacement intervals to align with normal line shutdowns and no additional production downtime.

With optional VideojetConnect™ Remote Service, the Videojet 1580 offers on-board remote service capabilities at the touch of a button. Operators can gain instant access to the world’s largest network of CIJ experts, connecting the Videojet technician directly to the production line for immediate assistance. This virtual access can help manufacturers to recover quicker, and deliver increased uptime, while minimizing the need for in-house maintenance.
