Continuous Inkjet

Videojet® 1580 C

A contrast printer that performs and behaves like a dye-based
printer, the Videojet 1580 C features innovations in hydraulics,
printhead, and cartridge designs that bring running time and
maintenance intervals to the same level as a standard
continuous inkjet (CIJ) printer. The 1580 C uses similar filters
as the rest of our CIJ range, with the same cleaning cycles and
preventive maintenance as a dye-based printer. Planned
maintenance can take place every 5000 hours, with no need
to reduce intervals because of using soft-pigmented inks. With
Videojet OPMTIMiZE software, the 1580 C can assess printer
efficiency and provide suggestions for improvement.

Uptime Advantage

  • Increase uptime with an additional 8 hours minimum of run time
    using a make-up reserve tank that protects your production under
    normal operating conditions
  • Patented cartridge design helps to reduce common faults by
    alleviating ink pigment settling in the cartridge and blocking the
    orifice, which can result in printhead clogging
  • Videojet Dynamic Calibration automatically maintains superior
    print quality, for optimum uptime under changing environmental

Code Assurance

  • Lower the opportunity for coding errors with intelligent message
    creation functionality
  • Automate code content without the need for operator
    interaction with user definable message rules
  • Maintain consistent quality and contrast over time with codes
    that remain readable and don’t fade over time

Simple Usability

  • Eliminate potential user errors through a Videojet SIMPLICiTY™
    interface that greatly reduces operator printer interactions
  • Easy to operate tablet-inspired 10” touchscreen display that is
    intuitive to you and translated to native language
  • Customize interfaces with built-in wizards, and access guided
    video tutorials for routine printer tasks

Built-in Productivity

  • Analyze your individual use patterns and receive printer
    improvement opportunities via on-screen alerts
  • Webserver capability allows access to printers via supported web
    browsers on host computers
