New Videojet 1280 CIJ printer

Performance and operator effectiveness made easy

Videojet 1280 continuous inkjet printer

Videojet Technologies, a global leader in coding, marking, and printing solutions, is pleased to launch its new Videojet 1280 CIJ printer. Built on over 40 years of expertise in the continuous inkjet coding market, the Videojet 1280 is the latest printer in the Videojet CIJ range. Designed with two key focuses, reliability, and simplicity, the Videojet 1280 is easy for operators to use and maintain.

Offering class-leading reliability, the Videojet 1280 incorporates the proven Videojet perth voip and fluid system technology, which can provide stable performance and reliability across a broad range of operating conditions, including variable volumes and production runs. The 1280 can remain unused for up to 14 days and can still provide excellent print quality on start-up without the need for additional printer intervention.

Engineered to help reduce unplanned printer downtime, 1280 features Videojet Dynamic Calibration. The printer constantly monitors environmental conditions and automatically adjusts jetting parameters to help maintain superior print quality and maximize uptime. The 1280 is also available with the Positive Air printhead option that requires no plant air and allows for long runs between printhead cleaning.

If an issue does occur, operators can recover quickly in many cases with on-board, easy-to-understand ‘How To’ videos, guiding them through basic tasks without the need for extensive training. In addition, optional VideojetConnect Remote Service offers remote servicing capabilities at the touch of a button. Operators can gain instant access to the world’s largest network of CIJ experts, connecting the Videojet technician directly to the production line for immediate assistance. This virtual access can help manufacturers recover quicker, and deliver increased uptime while minimizing the need for in-house maintenance.

With up to 95% reduction in time taken to replace maintenance components versus legacy Videojet CIJ models, the Videojet 1280 is simple to use and maintain. Featuring the Videojet SIMPLICiTY interface, the 1280’s tablet-inspired 8-inch touchscreen display is designed to greatly reduce operator printer interactions to help eliminate potential user errors. This Code Assurance capability means manufacturers don’t need to be CIJ experts in order to manage their day-to-day CIJ operations. Instead, manufacturers can focus on their primary tasks of running the production line, knowing that the Videojet 1280 will continue to put quality codes on their products with minimal operator interaction.

With 1280, manufacturers can benefit from only 5 minutes of user-performed annual preventive maintenance, either every year or when the printer reaches 3,000 hours, whichever occurs first. There is no need to be a CIJ expert for standard maintenance because, with predictable preventive maintenance, 1280 can help to eliminate nasty surprises that can cause unscheduled downtime.

In addition, 1280 features the no mess, no waste, no mistake Videojet SmartCartridge system that drains fluids from the cartridge and offers additional protection against leakage during transport and handling.

“The Videojet 1280 has been built on our proven and innovative continuous inkjet technology, offering virtually error-proof operation and an easy-to-use printer,” said Mithun Ramachandran, CIJ Business Unit Manager at Videojet Technologies. “The SIMPLICiTY™ interface greatly reduces operator printer interactions to help eliminate potential user errors through an intuitive, tablet-inspired 8” touchscreen interface. Combined with one, reliable and easy-to-replace Videojet SmartCell™ service module, the Videojet 1280 CIJ printer delivers class-leading reliability and easy usability.”

Manufacturers can choose from a variety of long shelf-like inks that have been designed to meet their requirements. Videojet iQMark™ inks are responsibly designed and manufactured to maximize contrast, adhesion, and uptime while meeting safety, environmental and regulatory requirements. Every batch is tested to ensure it meets strict quality control specifications.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
