Using advanced predictive capabilities, including what it claims is an industry-first ink build-up sensor, the new Videojet 1860 continuous inkjet printer (CIJ) is said to provide up to eight hours advance notice of the most common potential fault conditions that can impact on line uptime.

The Videojet 1860 is designed to enhance productivity while enabling users to evolve as their needs change, says the company.

The new CIJ integrates on-board intelligence and communication abilities with advanced technology to help meet the evolving and expanding needs of manufacturers, claims Videojet.

It is claimed to deliver enhanced uptime performance and, thus, increases productivity while lowering costs.

The 1860’s suite of predictive capabilities allows for corrective actions prior to many of the most common downtime-causing events.

It uses more than 50 real-time sensors to monitor 150+ key indicators of printer performance; providing expert diagnostics, analytics, and guidance.

Its novel nozzle system features a predictive gutter build-up sensor, and provides advance notice of the most common potential fault conditions.

Alert notifications are displayed on the printer and can be sent to a smart device, allowing for pre-emptive corrective action during line changeover, or other planned production stoppage.
