Xact have recently launched the newest continuous inkjet printer in their Matthews range. The CX16 has been developed as an entry level model, for applications where only 2 lines of print may be required for applying variable information directly onto primary packaging such as for date or batch coding in the food industry.
The CX16 is the most cost effective printer in the Matthews CIJ range. A compact model (320mm X 420mm X 545mm), it prints small characters from 1.8mm to 7mm high.
Its simplicity does not compromise reliability or functionality – it includes many of the features of the 5 line C84e such as one button start-stop control, password protection, automatic ink viscosity control for a consistent high quality print, a user friendly interface and a large message storage database. It also has a built-in pump so does not require external air and external top mounted fill caps to make ink and solvent replenishment extremely easy.
The result is a high quality print, even when printing at maximum speed of 107m/min (5×5 single line). Print features include 4-directional print, message delayed printing and variable characters/languages/logos/fonts printing.
The CX16 will be on display at Foodex at the NEC in March – stand S037.
