The system utilizes the company’s patented micro-channeling technology which eliminates the need for a costly array of fluid valves. Ink simply is distributed through a series of channels, keeping production and maintenance costs to a minimum. Choose from 3 different print sizes: .75-in. (20.0 mm), .5-in. (12.7 mm) or .375-in. (9.53 mm) character height. Each printhead has the capability to print 7 x 5 or 5 x 5 dot matrix characters at speeds up to 200 ft./min. (60.8 m/min.). Optional upgrades to different size printheads in the field.
