Drop-on-Demand Value

Known for incredible longevity in the harshest industrial environments, our Drop-on-Demand (DOD) printers deliver increased uptime on your production line. This improved uptime translates to real dollars to your bottom line, increases production efficiency, and contributes to your Overall Equipment Effectiveness goals. A choice of 7, 16, or 32 valves with mini, midi, and maxi nozzle options for each, the V-Series is the ideal choice for your large or small character marking needs.

V-Series Effectiveness

Your large or small character marking needs on cardboard, metal, paper and pulp, wood, concrete, plastic, and many other substrates are handily met at the speed your production line requires with the V-Series. Offering the longest lasting printheads in the industry with over 9-billion firings per printhead and speeds up to 780 ft/min (240 m/min), our V-Series gives you unparalleled performance. Native printing ranges from 3/32″ (2.38mm) to 5″ (127mm) while resolution can altered by tilting the printhead. If you need really large marking, printheads can be stacked to achieve branding on 72″ (1828mm) stacks of plywood and more.

Nozzle Options Bring Flexibility

You get unmatched flexibility with a choice of three different valve and nozzle options for each printhead, giving you exactly what you need to print the mark required on your substrate. Advanced nozzle design delivers precise marking while enhanced nozzle activation reduces ink consumption and yields an open time advantage during non-printing periods. The V-Series can be mounted over, under, or beside your production line, delivering ultimate control without changing your line.

Designed for Reliability

The V-Series is engineered to give you years of performance in your industrial environment. Whether you need to print lot codes on bags of cement on an overly dusty conveyor, point-of-sale data on stick lumber with sawdust in the air, thickness measurements on hot stainless steel as it comes out of processing, or regulatory data on uncured rubber, our V-Series printheads are up for the challenge. Precision machined faceplate nozzles decrease the risk of ink drying during idle times, easy maintenance with built-in and automatic cleaning and flushing valves, and over 9-billion firings per printhead all deliver the utmost in reliability.

Easy to Use Hardware and Software

Ease of use is built in. The V-Series delivers high-quality drop-on-demand inkjet printing in user-friendly hardware and software. Ink supply systems can be varied to meet your cost requirements as well as your production runtime needs. Cleaning is much easier with the automatic built-in flushing valve system. Printheads can be added to your line as needed with the power of our MPERIA® automated marking platform, you can seamlessly scale for production growth or adapt to line changes as needed.
