Hitachi’s UX Series continuous inkjet printers represent the pinnacle of innovation in marking and coding technology, all while showcasing Hitachi’s reputation for Reliability, Efficiency, and Ease of Use.
Versatile Tapered Print Head
Proximity to product can be challenging using traditional print heads, but the UX's new Tapered print head technology allows for even closer printng, thus improving print quality as a result.
Durable Ni-Cr Plating
The UX Series print head features a new Nickel-Chrome finish, giving it exceptional corrosion resistance and increasing the print head's lifespan in demanding environments like those requiring wash-down or exposure to caustic chemicals.
Flexible 6-Line Print
A single UX print head can now print up to six lines of text by employing an innovative print control system. Also available in the UX Series is Hitachi's Industry first interlaced drop control system, resulting in the highest quality code available regardless of print height.
Mess-Free, Mistake-Proof, Fluid Refills
Intelligent fluid cartridges reduce the possibility of hazardous fluid spills during refill. Being two different shapes, the Ink and Makeup cartridges are easily identifiable as well as sized to fit in each respective receptacle.
Error reduction is key to increased uptime and that's why the UX Series now features RFID Recognition for ink and makeup replacement. A quick scan of each bottle allows the system to identify the ink or makeup in question and instruct the operator based on compatibility.
Tool-less Filter Replacement
Ink Filters can be replaced without the use of tools or a technician, resulting in virtually zero downtime for simple maintenance. No more mandatory, time based failure due to machine operation. These printers provide the lowest total cost of operation on the market.
Simple, Economical Disposal
Ink and Makeup cartridges can be used right up to the last drop, and drain fully into their respective reservoirs. Complete fluid evacuation allows ink and makeup containers to be disposed of through conventional means instead of costly hazardous disposal methods.
Icons on screen provide simple, visual feedback to an operator. Ink and Makeup level gauges show the current fluid level and indicate when it`s time to replace each cartridge. This allows for more efficient ink usage, reduces waste, and further contributes to cost reduction.
The UX Dynamic model printer is IP-65 rated, meaning it can be integrated into a variety of production environments without worry or modification of current production processes such as wash-down procedures. Hitachi UX Series printers can operate in High and Low temperature environments as well as dusty environments, allowing them to be placed close to the action. UX Basic machines are IP-55 standard.
