UX Twin-Nozzle (UX-D860W/S)

UX Twin-Nozle Series

Hitachi's Continuous Ink Jet Printer with innovative Twin nozzle can print multiple lines of code to match traceability requirements without production line complexity or speed reduction. The Twin Jet contains a circulatory system to provide two nozzles at the same time. The result is outstanding, high-speed printing underlining Hitachi's commitment to quality.

Higher Print Speeds

Having two nozzles dramatically increases the speed of multi-line printing. Traditional, single nozzle print heads become taxed very quickly when printing multiple lines of print especially at speed. By sharing the work load between two separate nozzles, this effect is greatly reduced.

Flexible 8-Line Print

Our print head now has the capability of producing 8 lines of text by utilizing two individual nozzles in one, compact design. In addition, by utilizing Hitachi’s original “interlaced” print control technique, multiple line messages are printed clearly and legibly, further reducing coding errors due to misprint.

Versatile 64-Dot

Hitachi's innovative design can now produce 64 vertical dots of print resulting in large, bold characters. This makes our twin nozzle printer ideally suited to mark company logos or any other pattern previously unachievable with traditional print heads.

Character Stitch Capability

A unique option in our new twin-nozzle printer is the ability to stitch both nozzles together. The results of character stitching are characters that are bigger and bolder than even before achievable with single nozzle printers. This is particularly useful when character recognition is needed at a distance from the product.
