1 Jet Washdown

Providing Complete Protection Against Water, Dust, and Moisture

The 1 Jet Washdown thermal inkjet (TIJ) system has additional advantages to the 1 Jet. This IP65 certified printer is compact and powerful and provides complete protection against water, dust, and moisture. Covering your systems with plastic bags or removing them from the line prior to daily disinfecting and washing down procedures is no longer necessary!

What does IP65 mean? This refers to enclosure ratings. IP stands for Ingress Protection. It is an international standard of sealing effectiveness for the electrical enclosure’s safety against dust, dirt, moisture, as well as incidents with tools and accidental contact.

The numbers 65 have two separate meanings.

  • 6 refers to solids. This means that the product is completely sealed against foreign objects large and small. This offers safety for the equipment against dust and particulates as well as safety for the user preventing tools or hands from touching potentially hazardous electrical components.
  • 5 refers to liquids. This offers proven protection against forms of moisture as well as low pressure water jets. A 6.3mm nozzle of directed water is sprayed from all angles for a minimum of 15 minutes, if there are no harmful effects to the components it will pass.

This unit can be integrated seamlessly with new and existing production lines. The intuitive 3-button system with LED feedback is designed to provide a simple platform for users that requires little to no training. Messages are created using the included software. The standalone 1 Jet Washdown printer allows you to store up to 9 messages which can easily be selected using the onboard controls. Simultaneously print essential information while ensuring legibility with this high-resolution unit. Print alphanumerics, graphics, & barcodes up to 900DPI, at adjustable speeds, and onto porous and non-porous substrates. This unit can receive print triggers from a multitude of host machines and easily connect to your database/ERP to receive required print data.

Vertical and horizontal band sealers, thermo-forming, conveyor belts, bottling and filling lines, labeling equipment, stretch wrap machines, shrink wrap machines, side & bottom seal, sachet machines, flexible pouch, form, fill, & seal equipment, as well as almost any material handling options on the market today.
