VideoJet 1650 Continuous Inkjet Printers


The Videojet 1650 continuous inkjet printer has been engineered to effectively cope
with demanding coding and marking applications where a combination of speed and
throughput require a high utilization solution.  In addition to delivering an Uptime
Advantage, the 1650 provides advanced features to help reduce operator error and tools
to help improve Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
Code Assurance features help eliminate common coding errors by helping your
operators put the right code on the right product, time after time.  On-board Productivity
Tools display details about both Printer Availability and Operational Availability, enabling
a review of data to discover technical and operational causes of unplanned downtime. 
This data is presented in a logical way to help identify the root cause of downtime, and
empower operators to take corrective action and boost productivity and profits.

Speed without compromising quality:
  • Dynamic Calibration™ adjusts jetting parameters automatically to help ensure high quality print
  • Print from 1 to 5 lines of text at high speeds:
    • Single line max speed = 293 m/min (960 ft/min)
    • Dual line max speed = 146 m/min (480 ft/min)
    • Tri-line max speed = 81 m/min (265 ft/min)
Engineered for extended runs; Uptime Advantage via:
  • CleanFlow™ technology resists ink buildup that can cause ordinary inkjet printers to shut down
  • Long run time between preventive maintenance; up to 14,000 hour core life
  • Internal pump means no external air, minimizing potential for contaminants to enter ink stream
  • Auto cleaning printhead for fast start-ups even after extended shutdowns
No mess, no waste fluid delivery:
  • Make-up consumption as low as 2.4 ml/hour
  • Smart Cartridge™ fluid delivery system to virtually eliminate spills and help ensure the correct fluids are being used
On-board Code Assurance to help prevent coding mistakes:
  • Advanced software minimizes and mistake-proofs operator inputs to the coding and marking process to help reduce errors
  • Operator inputs are governed by rules which simplifies choices via field prompts, drop-down menus, calendar displays and predefined formats to help ensure correct entries
Built-in Productivity tools to keep your lines operational:
  • Bright, 264 mm (10.4 in) touchscreen interface that provides real-time fluid levels, maintenance alerts, print jobs and other operational information
  • Instant fault information is displayed to get your printer and line running again – fast
  • Drill down into Printer Availability data to discover technical and operational causes of downtime, get to the root cause of downtime events and fix them for good
