Compare these products

A small character continuous inkjet printer is a non-contact printing method where electrically charged droplets of ink (only half the diameter of a human hair) are expelled from a printhead nozzle at a rate of up to 120,000 droplets per second and accurately propelled onto a substrate.

This makes continous printers ideal for high-speed lines and irregular products across a host of sectors: food and beverage, grocery, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and timber to name a few.

Manage coders with ease

Matthews’ range of Linx industrial Continuous Inkjet Printers are renowned globally for their ease of use, reliability and low cost of ownership.

Plus the printhead has an auto-flush feature, meaning minimal downtime and operator intervention so your lines keep moving. A Linx CIJ printer is at least IP55 rated, and operate without the need for factory air. CIJs are a small character inkjet printer, making inline printers the perfect option for when you have small text to print onto your product.
