EBS-1500 Industrial Inkjet Printer

The EBS-1500 industrial, modular inkjet system has been designed to print onto porous and non-porous materials in harsh industrial environments. The electromagnetic print mechanism allows printing with very fast-drying inks without the risk of the printhead drying or clogging between prints. The print solenoid in each nozzle generates sufficient force to remove any dried ink or dust from the nozzle each time it fires making the EBS-1500 the ideal solution for printing in dusty environments.

One EBS-1500 controller can drive up to 6 printheads with a choice of 7, 16, 25, 32 and 64 dots per printhead. Print heights range from 6 to 115mm with up to 8 lines of print from one printhead. Printheads can be configured to use different ink colours. A choice of 1-litre and 5-litre ink systems is available to suit your printing throughput.

A wide range of inks is available including fast-drying inks for non-porous surfaces, pale opaque inks for printing on dark non-porous surfaces, food grade inks and UV-fluorescing ink for security marking. The optional shaft encoder allows printng on variable speed production lines and continuous printing on pipes, extrusions, textiles and other continuous products.

EBS-1500 Inks

The EBS-1500 can be used to mark almost any material whether porous or non-porous, pale or dark-colured. A range of water, ethanol, acetone and MEK-based inks is available in a range of colours.

>White, yellow, green and blue pigmented inks can be used to print clear, high-contrast marks on non-porous materials including plastic and metal. A circulating ink system ensures pigmented inks do not settle in the ink container avoiding clogging in the printhead. When printing on both pale and dark-coloured products, green and light-blue pignemted inks offer the possibility to use one ink to mark all products.

Red, blue and brown food grade inks are available as well as a UV-fluorescing ink for security marking of products.
