Honaz launches Maplejet ProDigit 70 with Xaar 502 printheads
Honaz FZCo will launch its new MapleJet ProDigit 70 printer, which incorporates Xaar 502 GS15 O printheads, on its stand at the GulFood Manufacturing Exhibition in the Dubai World Trade Centre (31st October-2nd November).
The latest printer in the ProDigit range, the MapleJet ProDigit 70 raises the bar in terms of quality, reliability, and return on investment. It is the ideal choice for companies looking to replace their carton label printers as it can print high-resolution (180dpi) codes at up to 70mm height, directly onto cartons. Operating at line speeds of up to 58 m/minute, it is perfect for printing text, logos, barcodes and images directly onto porous substrates.
The printer is available in single or bi-colour versions and has a one-litre bulk ink system, meaning operator intervention is significantly reduced. Its retracting module ensures print quality on production lines where consistent product placement cannot always be achieved.
Visitors to the Honaz stand will learn how the Xaar 502 GS15 O printheads used in the ProDigit 70 provide industrial reliability for high production up-time, and superb levels of performance for printing high quality text, data and barcodes onto secondary packaging.
About the Xaar 502 GS15 O printheads
The Xaar 502 GS15 O printhead utilises Xaar's latest piezoelectric drop-on-demand bulk technology actuator design, PrecisionPlus, which provides a long throw distance and increases stability and robustness of the printhead. Combined with the optimised nozzle guard to support automated maintenance routines, this printhead is ideally positioned for use in demanding and harsh factory environments.
Also incorporated into the Xaar 502 is Xaar's unrivalled TF Technology, which can be run in full through flow mode or pulsed mode. This optional new mode recirculates ink behind the nozzles during non-printing periods only, ensuring maximum reliability, excellent performance, high energy efficiency and market-leading printhead lifespan.
PrecisionPlus and TF Technology enable fully optimised actuator performance supporting printing in multiple orientations, such as skyscraper (vertical printing) mode, delivering high drop volume as well as accurate drop placement for exceptional print quality, good contrast on dark surfaces, high speed of print and excellent reliability.
