VIAjet™ L-Series Thermal Inkjet Printers

Thermal Inkjet TIJ marking and coding printer

The clear alternative to continuous inkjet and thermal transfer printers.

The VIAjet L-Series thermal inkjet printers give you the flexible options you require while producing precise marks at extraordinary speeds; keeping your products in compliance while ensuring your brand puts its best foot forward. Print variable data, graphics, or simple text at unprecedented speeds on a variety of substrates with the L-Series thermal inkjet printers. Case coding on corrugate boxes, barcodes on coated/uncoated wood, lot codes on pre-printed chipboard, and expiry dates on glossy labels: these and many others are excellent applications for our affordable thermal inkjet (TIJ) printers.

In addition to its ability to print precise marks at high speed, TIJ printing offers a number of operational advantages over continuous inkjet (CIJ) printing, including faster ink changeovers, a much lower maintenance burden, faster installation, easier operation, greater system flexibility, extremely reliable marking and coding, and less negative environmental impact.

Value

Save money with thermal inkjet printing, the L-Series provides an excellent cost-effective alternative to continuous inkjet printing.  TIJ printing is cartridge based and doesn’t suffer the typical downtime issues commonly experienced by CIJ operations.  Improved uptime and cost-per-mark savings delivers real dollars to your bottom line, increases production efficiency, and contributes to your Overall Equipment Effectiveness goals.  Combining a small footprint for easy installation with flexible options for growth, the L-Series is the clear choice for high-value marking and coding on your primary and secondary packaging!

Effectiveness

Your small character coding and graphics marking needs are precisely met at the speed of your production line with the L-Series.  A variety of inks, including fast-dry options, keep your products flowing.  Offering a variety of marking heights to meet most small character needs, the L-Series also have unmatched flexibility if your coding requirements reach beyond the native ½”, 1”, or 2”.  Our L-Series L1 printheads can be stitched together for larger marking applications, providing amazing scalability.

High-Resolution

Specifications can be such a bore, but this is one to pay attention to; your barcodes, QR/Datamatrix codes, small text and graphics are delivered in true 600dpi resolution on your porous and non-porous substrates.  Whether you need great brand representation on your packages or crisp, legible marks for your traceability initiative, the L-Series delivers the quality marks you need.

High-Speed

The L-Series is engineered for your production line speed challenge.  Whether you need high resolution marking at 200 ft/min, low resolution coding at 1,600 ft/min, or an astounding 3,200 ft/min with stitched L1 printheads, we meet your line requirements with ease.  Sharp marks and codes at the speed of your production line, the L-Series has you covered.

Easy to Use

The L-Series deliver high quality thermal inkjet printing in incredibly easy to use and operate hardware.  Cartridge-based printing means you don’t have to deal with filling messy ink reservoirs, it’s self-contained.  Plus, you get simpler, faster ink changeovers for a lower total cost of ownership. Add to this getting a new printhead each time you change a cartridge and you are assured the highest resolution, most reliable quality marks on your products.

Great for Case Coding

The L-Series are ideally suited for your case coding application. Whether you need to mark secondary packaging corrugate boxes with traceability data or primary packaging chipboard with your logo, our TIJ code printers give you low maintenance case coding with pinpoint accuracy in the resolution you need.
