  • Long run time between preventive maintenance; up to 14,000 hour core life
  • On board code assurance to minimize and mistake-proofs operator inputs
  • Bright 10.4 in touchscreen for operator inputs, real-time fluid levels, maintenance alerts, print jobs

VJ 1710

High Contrast Coding Printer

For applications that require easily readable variable data on dark or difficult to mark materials, Videojet 1710 uses high-contrast, pigmented inks to create bright, clean codes on surfaces for which dye-based inks are not effective, such as colored glass, rubber tubing, plastic cabling and dark paperboard. It is capable of printing a variety of fonts in multiple languages, as well as linear bar codes, 2D DataMatrix codes, custom logos and graphics.

  • Dynamic Calibration™ adjusts jetting parameters automatically to ensure high quality print.
  • The unique fluid system assures proper dispersion of pigments while printing or when idle for long periods of time.
  • Bright display with WYSIWYG and function keys for easy operation.
  • Print from 1 to 5 lines of text at speeds up to 271 M/min (single line.
  • Long run time between preventive maintenance; up 4,000 hours or 12 months
